Writing poems

It’s easy to write poems if you just start with a word
And then you add some others in– a second and a third.
But when you reach the fourth one, it can be a frantic time
Because your lines start ending so you need find a rhyme.
However, you can use a cheat if you encounter trouble–
A half-rhyme can be close enough for when you really struggle.
There are a lot of tactics for when you’re feeling diligent:
You can focus on each syllable, the assonance, the sibilance.
The main thing that’s important is to find a way to write
And make yourself stop worrying about what’s wrong and right.
