Batten down the hatches! Here comes a slattern
in a patterned-pink satin wearing pattens
with patches to match. I once hatched a plan
to flatten her head with a hatchet
and yet here she comes.
Though she’s fattened by nachos,
all the blokes’ breaths catch
as she passes under the lantern.
I wish I could send her in batches to Saturn.
One of my favourite exercises is to take a word at random, then see how many rhymes and near-rhymes I can add, to write a nonsense poem. The rhymes drive the sense, such as it is, of the poem.
This is easy to do and great fun. RhymeZone helps 🙂
oh the ass onance. Love this!
