I was reading Vikram Seth’s poetry,
So it kind of hit me,
Why not for once write in rhyme, abcb and so on.
Since, it did not seem too wrong
I thought I should try. It, of course, could be supremely stupid or nice
Maybe I could try it once or twice.
My first thought was a review in rhyme,
-I was a bit hesitant since it was my first time-
of a movie, book or TV show.
Since I had read many and seen many more.
But something about it seemed a bit off.
So I settled for a blog post (Don’t scoff!)
Two paragraphs or more
Nothing that would bore
My readers: an impromptu poem was what I need.
Nothing too formal, nothing that would breed
a longer poem. So, here it is –
(I sincerely hope you won’t miss this.)
No frills, no high-fi vocabulary,
No reviews, no books, nothing exemplery.
Just a few words stringed together
By rhyme, meter and some excellent hot weather,
Which I admit kept me indoors through the day,
Even though it is not even May.
This brings me to the last few lines,
At this point, I really am running out of rhymes.
If you do like it or not, there’s something you can do-
How about dropping in a sentence or two?
You can even tear it apart line by line.
Anything sincere would be fine.
So I say bye for now,
With the promise to be back tomorrow.
