I now propose some small, diverting game,
One that I hope will prove more fun than lame.
A thread in verse! Like Shakespeare used to write!
With wand’ring themes, but rhyme and meter tight.
Pentameter iambic is the form,
And rhyming couplets here should be the norm.
The challenge shall be for each player to
Add just two lines; not one, nor three, but two.
The first must rhyme with what came just before.
The second one may be whate’er. 'Tis for
The following contributor to choose
A rhyme to match, else then the game they lose.
Exempli gratia: my post ends with “was.”
So now another poster answers “Cuz,
Yer poem’s wack, and kinda sucky, bro.”
Of course, their line begins not with “Cuz,” no,
It starts with “So.” You get my meaning here?
I think so. Have we yet run out of beer?
Oh, damn. We’ve started already, have we?
Indeed we have. So now let’s try to see
What bards among us we might chance to find?
