Have you every tried to write a really good rhyme?
And what should take a second, takes much more time?
The rhythm's wrong, you trip on each word.
Your brain makes up things you thought you heard.
Counting syllables and drumming out a beat.
It makes you want to turn and retreat.
A poem should be easy, a piece of cake!
But each stanza is awful, you're a poetic fake!
Take this rhyme, that I just jotted down.
Yes, it may rhyme, but a poet would frown.
My attempts are clumsy and elementary, my dear.
I just don't have a true poet's ear.
But does that stop me? Oh, no! Not I!
I'll keep plugging away, give it the ol' college try.
And when I get stuck, I'll just give a sigh.
Until all that's left to say is "Bye-bye!"
