My example poem
Within the Bounds?      (Cinq-Cinquain)
Thinking
of repeating
some rhymes in every verse
I know I can but should I now
Pray tell?
Sinking
self-defeating
doubts here would make it worse,
I’ll proceed- rhyming anyhow.
Oh hell.
Drinking
while I’m beating
time, now seems so perverse,
although the rules don’t disallow
Oh well.
Shrinking
from a fleeting
desire to intersperse
some lyricism here and now
to quell
stinking
doubts competing
that I’m cheating where terse
is sought and I use rhyme somehow
as well.
