couplets keep coming in my overactive head,
awake after midnight, sleep seldom comes to bed
so many sentences, whether read or spoken
end up chime rhyming – can of worms wide open
five poems composed, completed in a day
– will the given gift be soon taken away?
the rhyming dictator has colonised my brain,
prompting promiscuously, driving me insane…
Hemmings name your hazard, breakdown
or heart halt – you plain crazy rhyming clown?
