RhymeLand (poem)

How would life be,
Better or worse,
If our lives were lived
In rhyming verse?

Driving in the car
Slam on the brakes.
Shout out of the window
“No great shakes!”

Queuing for a drink
Some guy pushes in
We square up to each other
He says “Sorry!” with a grin

Sitting in his office
Boss shouts out my name
“About that lost contract…
I know you’re not to blame”

Washing the kitchen floor
Dirty dog runs through
“Never mind!”, I say
“That first wash wouldn’t do!”

So give it a try
And maybe you’ll see
The power of rhyme
To set you FREE!
