It's Gone!

I don't know what is wrong with me

But I've lost my inbuilt rhymer

I think I'm going to miss it

It was my social climber

Every body thought me great

What a clever lad is he

It seems that he can make things rhyme

No matter what they be

But now it's gone and finished

I'm just like all the rest

But Midge and Dolly and Scarecrow Sal

Will still think I'm the best. 😊

Don’t you worry, lovely Don

We’re all here to spur you on

Rhymers block is what you’ve got

But pretty soon you’ll be back on top.

Good to see you dear Don and the lovely Midge along with Dolly and Sal. Xxxx πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ˜˜

I must get back to work again

And prime my carburettor

Some on here are as good as me

And one or two are better 😲

It would appear Master Po you are the victim of crime

Someone has gone and pinched your words that rhyme

But worry not we had a whip round for you

And managed to collect a word or two

I will pop them in the post first thing tomorrow

So you can be a happy chap again and feel no sorrow.

Oh heck! I missed a doctors appointment last week, first time in my life, just fell asleep in my chair and was an hour late when I awoke.

The sleep was probably even more beneficial than the doctor would have been Cap'n x

Just so long as you refrain from gnawing bones, I can't envisage a problem ;-)

I'm wide awake and restless in the middle of the night

Even while not at home I can't escape this plight

It's too bad we can't exchange some of our states of sleep

I'd sleep a while and your appointment you would keep.

One reason for my waking is I've eaten some strange food

But to run now to the bathroom could be rather rude

Disturbing everyone from their nocturnal rest

Just because my stomach decided to protest.

Why I can't go back to sleep, this is the biggest culprit;

I'm trying to think of what rhymes with toilet.

Pulpit HH?

With some artistic license that could work 😁

Lol HH - perhaps rather a lot of artistic license would be required :-)

Hmm - 'soil it' could rhyme with toilet - majji *piles* on more artistic license - lotsalols ;-) Perhaps I should have typed *haemorroids* but felt piles was more fitting also descriptive!

Here we are again, I'm speaking from the pulpit

At least this time my waking does not involve the toilet.

You may well ask what is wrong wi' ya

It is of course the dreaded insomnia.

Would you like to join up 'every' and 'body' Cap'n or are you referring to bodies individually in this instance? x You are still the KING Cap'n :-)

If you read the poem aloud you will realise why I wrote the words separately. πŸ˜‰ Not that it matters, it sounds so arrogant I wish I hadn't written it at all.

I don't imagine anyone on here would think you could ever be arrogant Cap'n, you are far too nice an individual for that label - I did recite it out loud however the penny has yet to drop :-)

It's about rhythm;

Every, body, thought me, great

1and 2and 3and 4.

Pronounce clearly, syllable by syllable. Each beat 2 syllables except the final beat.

I write these things by the seat of my pants, I'm no expert so I might well be talking rubbish here if you can even understand it. πŸ€”

True fact Midge thinks you’re best bet she’d even pick you over Dolly. In my eyes that’s a true hero

Ah Don , In my book you are the best rhymer of all, sometimes we all get a bit of brain fog which soon will disappear and we start afresh.

Dear Don if you cannot rhyme for now just participate and it will give you ideas to rhyme or maybe we put pressure on you to carry on. Whatever you do it will be nice to hear from you anyway x

many years ago my son was struggling to do some "homework" given to him from his infants class. It was a page of arithmetic . He sat at the table staring at the work. So I asked him what was the matter and why wasn't he doing it. So he told me " Mum, the part of my brain that does sums, has gone on holiday" and Im only left . May be your word rhymer has taken a vacation. :-)

If you want to write a rhyme

Give yourself a little time.

Sit and contemplate a while

Find the things that make you smile.

You make ME smile all the time

I hope you've now got back the rhyme!

You don't always have to be on top of your game Don. Even Shakespeare had his "lost years" we have no idea what he was up to, probably making babies πŸ˜€ and moving to London, but no writing that we know of. Despite penning War and Peace and Anna Karenina, Tolstoy suffered writers block for months and years!! So take heart Don.We will eagerly but patiently await your next instalment , but not till you are ready. It's worth waiting for. Have a lovely weekend. xx πŸ€πŸŒΏ

As much as I fancy moving to London for a while and making a few babies, dear Cas, I really don't think that I have anything at all in common with Shakespeare or Tolstoy. Alas I'm just a common type that needs a kick up the backside every now and then. I have much to be grateful for and one that I cherish is the fact that I lived long enough to witness you receiving that long awaited phone call, followed a successful op. So take great care of yourself and thank you for caring for me. 😘
