So here is a little thing I call...
A poet I know asked for help with a rhyme,
I said, "Let me try, what is it this time?"
He said, "Doggerel."
I said, "I know what you write but regarding your plight,
What is the word that you cannot get right?"
He said, "Doggerel!"
I said, "I see what you mean, it is really quite hard,
You'd have to be quite a spectacular bard,
To rhyme, "Doggerel."
He said, "I've read your poetry blog,and I thought it OK
And while I can't find a rhyme I think I can say
Such a blogger'll.
I said, "I'll do my best, if that's OK
At least for the moment I won't run away
Like a jogger'll.
I shall work very hard, work till I drop
Till I find an answer, I simply won't stop
No good slogger'll.
I'll call up my friends if I can't make it scan,
One is a lumberjack and if anyone can,
Then a logger'll.
And if he fails there's a man who makes shoes
Who I'm certain might well have a word we can use,
Yes that clogger'll."
He said, "All these words that you've tried seem to cheat,
Maybe we should throw in the towel in defeat,
Faced with 'doggerel'."
I sighed and then used an American voice
And said, "Then perhaps your first and best choice,
