My Time

Get on your knees, it’s time to beg
You need to be knocked down a peg
It’s your turn to ask forgiveness
For all the ways that you transgress
Tables have turned, it’s my time to rule
I hope you’re ready to be the fool
Here’s your hat and here’s your suit
Gee now don’t you look so cute
The world will no longer laugh at me
Now you’re on display for all to see
So be prepared to entertain
As I pop open my champagne

    I like the celebratory tone of this. I may be overstepping the line of your average replier, but, I would challenge you to leave the rhymes that have bound you to your rhythms and free yourself to write poetry unencumbered and unbowed to such linear dimensions. Don’t be afraid to end a sentence with ‘orange’. It may take you somewhere new and juicy.

      LOL No worries, I welcome all criticism 🙂 As for the rhyming, what can I say? I’m a bit traditional at heart. Though I have tried writing without the rhymes the rhythm never sounds right to me and the thoughts don’t flow as they should in my head. As much as I enjoy the work of others, I can’t quite seem to capture the style the way they do.

    Jaded, while I myself LOVE cottonboms non-rhyming verses, I have found I really have to stretch more in concepts when I write in rhymes: it actually helps me say more in fewer words. Anyway, I hope the champagne was purchased by the one who is “now on display for all to see.”–because my feet are dancing right now with your nifty rhythms!
