Day 16 ~ Monorhyme Poem for #NationalPoetryMonth for “30 poems in 30 days”

How about a Monorhyme Poem?

A Monorhyme is a poem in which all the lines have the same ending rhyme.
It can be however many lines you want and about any subject as long as the last word of each line rhymes with all the other last words of each line. You can give it a title BUT you don't skip (space) any lines in the poem. 

And here’s a little rhyming helper ~ just type in the word you want to use and oodles of words that rhyme with that word will pop up: "Rhyme Zone"

Two examples of Monorhyme Poems (some of my examples ~ not that great, but you get the main idea. I’m sure your poems will be better).

Birthday Party Banter

Today I was surrounded with children’s chatter.
A party for Taylor, there was such a clatter.
Excited kids arrived like players up to batter.
A slip n’ slide made the water splatter.
When it started to rain, it really didn’t matter.
Grass-covered feet went pitter-patter.
Then out came the food on a pretty platter.
Pizza and cake, just making me fatter.
As the party came to an end, the kids began to scatter.

30 Poems in 30 Days

It’s really hard to say,
What started this poetry display.
I thought it would be fun to play,
With a poetry form every day.
As much as I’d like to hit the hay,
I need to write without delay.
To post on my blog a new way to say,
Follow the example, don’t go astray.

Day 26-monorhyme

Coming up with a poem that rhymes
Is all about the rhythm and time
And making it sound like a beautiful chime
As in "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme"

It really isn't such a great literary climb
To be able to rhyme in the daytime
But when it carries into your needed sleep time
It may have now become a bedtime crime!!

Don't know why wingnuts are cool
Perhaps appearances can fool
You can trap an unsuspecting ghoul
With a wingnut and a large-sized spool
(Be prepared for a pint of drool!)
You will not even need a tool
You can turn one into a blingy jewel
With some flashy string made out of wool
Or clamp the cover on your pool
Keep a wingnut handy as a rule
You'll not regret it, 'cause it's cool

For more of these go to my site
I'll let you see them without fight
You can survey my awesome might
