For Lack of a Better Title

A man who thought he was a poet

Wanted all of the free world to know it

But he couldn't rhyme,

So, given some time,

His friends hoped that he would outgrow it.


It didn't happen. Thanks for reading my random rambling.

    Almost, Dana, but better than some! It's really hard to get the right number of syllables--not that many would care, much less notice.....
