The Rhyming Smiling Overlord

I've been declared the Rhyming Smiling Overlord.
So now you have to do whatever I say!
(They told me to declare three things I'd change, ok?)
First I'd make it mandatory that the news
include at least some rhyming.  The author they can choose.
Of course I hope that they will pick me...
and since I'm the Overlord, that's probably how it'll be.
Second, I'd make any sort of relaxation therapy tax deductible,
'cuz I believe staying calm makes you feel more indestructible.
Then maybe next time life hits a line drive at your head,
you won't yell, whine or let your face turn angry bright red.

Last, I'd make unnecessary rudeness punishable by fine.
Any service employee could assess one at any time.
If you yell at the staff or bug everyone in the store,
you just may find that you will be paying more.

And now, I humbly declare my successors to be:
Mad Kane, Almost There and my friend Foxy.
Celebrate in your mind or on your blog - you choose.
I found it quite fun to make up a few rules.

  1. Hi Rachel -

    Can you please tell me more about your friend, "Foxy"? Hahaha ;).

    I always like poems like these much more than the extremely profound ones. I write my poems much like you do. Kind of funny, kind of silly, and with subtle serious undertones. And of course, I love yours ^5. :)

  2. Funny rules.
    Fun verse.
    Thanks for the award.
    Does it come with a purse?

  3. Rhyming news, I like it.

    "Tragic news from Timbuktu tonight.
    Someone broke the town's stop light."

  4. @bjbohls - LOL. Foxy is my firnd Rahul who also writes potery. :)

    @MadKane - Alas, I have no prize purse to give. I hope with the digital prize you can live. :) Hehe.

    @Beyan - I love writing the rhyming wacky news! I think it would make the paper less of a snooze. :)

  5. Rachel,
    Way cool baby : )

  6. Thank you hunni

    now I have to go and think
    Did you make it compulsory for me to rhyme or now do I get to change the rules again ?

    Love you to bits


  7. @Jessica - Thanks! It is a cool award. :)

    @Ayala - thanks for stopping by!

    @SJ - You're welcome! It's up to you to decide if you desire to rhyme or not. You're the overlord now. Hehe. xoxo


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
