“My Mind Ponders in Verse, For Better or Worse”

Once upon a time,

I wrote a little rhyme.

It didn’t take much time,

And then I sold it for a dime.

And now I’m rhyming things in verse.

A heavenly gift or just a curse?

Rhymes neither take from nor add to my purse,

And suppose they could not get any worse.

So really then reader, what should I do?

Keep putting these rhymes out into view?

And to my imaginative self be true?

Oh, I simply haven’t any old clue!

If I would put these rhymes on my blog,

Would you put me in stocks and then flog?

Because it seems that whatever (for better or worse),

My mind just keeps spinning and working in verse.
