rhymelord is a well retired, long-in-the-tooth engineer who is a self confessed dinosaur in his lack of appreciation of verse that has no rhyme or scan. He would love to learn to understand the attraction blank verse obviously has for some, but, hav - more...

He is an accomplished poet and is currently at the #93 spot on this years rankings.

Couplets in despair
"Damn it!" by rhymelord

So, Domino has lost his muse
and Yeltel too.  I’m most enthused.
If those two can’t write poetry,
there might be hope for grunts like me
to sneak in while they’re in this mess
and hope my thoughts can coalesce
to come up with a winning rhyme -
a real poetic paradigm.
But, Damn!  As I sat down to write,
my muse just said “That’s it.  Goodnight!
I’m off on some poetic cruise
with Domino and Yeltel’s muse."

Write in rhyme for a good time contest entry

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
