Who Holds You in the Rhyme of Their Hand

 

Rhyme

Romans 12:2
New King James Version (NKJV)

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.


Rhyme Me Not

Would it be a crime
Not to rhyme
To break the meter and the time
And write unfettered and sublime
Not to mimic or to mime
To find some other pastime
You know, not full-time
But at least halftime
Not interfering with mealtime
I mean come on, we could all climb
Up on some hill in Anaheim
And have a big time
Just have a margarita with a lime
It wouldn’t cost one thin dime
We’d probably hear some wind chimes
We’ll rise above the murky slime
Wipe our feet of the gritty grime
We’ll have a big-time!
If we could all, just not rhyme
Oh well, I suppose not.

Father,

May we hear with our hearts the meter and rhyme of Your will. Let it take us up above the darkness and carry us to worlds unknown. We forsake the patterns of evil and cry out to You in letters of love. We thank You and praise You for transforming us into poems of promise.

  1. What a fun twist on the last line! I enjoyed that.

    I’m glad I didn’t quit reading after a few of the pedantic, forced, and boringly repetitious “_ime”-rhymes of the preceeding 19 tedious lines. The reward at the end was definitely worth the perseverance.

    But then that was the point, wasn’t it?

    Nice job!

    • Thanks. Sometimes when I’m trying to rhyme seriously I still have that same feeling of being boring and forcing something. It just seemed a fun way not to have to worry about whether there was any meaning in it or not – just rhyming. ..with a little joke at the end.
