I have got to write a Rhyme
A Ballad they say, but it’s not Shakespeare’s day
If I had my way, I’d row away, Metaphors, Imagery, Rhymes are not our way.

I’ve got to write a Rhyme and it’s taking up all my day
I’d pay someone to write it, Keats would be okay
to make up this Rhyme
Afterall It’s not Henry Lawsons time
It’s 2020 we Tweet and Text

A Ballad they say has a story
mine is that I am still stuck on the Rhyme
a story they say I could write or joke
but a Ballad with Rhyme would be a hoax, because

My story to here is not easy to hear
I grew up with PlayStation and moved onto iPhones.
We weren’t taught how to Rhyme nor use Tone
It’s something Dylan Thomas’ wouldn’t postpone
But me?
