Last year I introduced “Terse Verse” for the first time. Everyone had SO much fun with it that I think we should do it again!! It will put a smile on your face!! It takes a bit of figuring things out at first, but once you get the hang of it – it’s hard to stop creating them!!
Let’s have some fun!! A “Terse Verse” is usually funny. It’s actually a riddle with a two-word rhyming answer; basically a synonym . . . The tricky part is that the two words in the answer must also have the same number of syllables.
Here are a few examples from the web:
What do you call a rabbit’s seat?
TERSE VERSE (answer): “Hare’s Chair.”
What do you call a quizzing friend?
What makes a dark room bright?
What do you call a pig in an earthquake?
I think the "Rhyme Zone" tool will come in handy for this – it might be easier to approach this poetry form backward by finding a double rhyming two-word phrase with equal syllables and then create a question or riddle for it.
