An Uneven Rodomontade
"Take a look" by Chrissy710

I am far too nice
May I also say
I'm gorgeous

When you pass me by
you will stare
I will hear you say
what a pair
Hour glass I am
perfect waist.
Not one ounce of fat
all in place.

Oh so beautiful
pretty face.
Sleek and shiny hair
a showcase.

Plus I'm very smart
cannot fool.
Have a brilliant mind
always cool.

Would I lie to you?
tongue in cheek.
I shall tell the truth
I'm antique.

The mirror does not lie
Yes I'm old.
But I had some fun
Sometimes bold.

Author Notes
After reading Dolly's Poem, based on this style by Robyn Corum an uneven Rodomontade, I just couldn't resist trying it out and hope I have met the criteria and stretched the truth a bit! well a lot ha ha

An uneven Rodomontade is where one must brag about yourself in some way
(n) boastful or inflated talk or behavior
)v) talk boastfully

This style should have a minimum of 3 stanzas, more if desired but they must be uneven in number
Each Stanza is to have a 5 3 5 3 syllable count

I wrote my poem with tongue in cheek and a little bit cheeky to boot but it was fun I hope you may smile and please don't take this seriously

Thanks to Dolly and Robyn
