Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés - Pod

Bouts Rimés means "rhymed ends" in French and is a game or challenge where one person (me) makes a list of rhymed words and others (you) write the lines that end with those rhymes, in the same order in which they were given. It was known as Crambo in English and was quite popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Will you help me bring back this hip historical habit?
Above are the words.
Get writing rhyme nerds!
There will be no winner. This is just for fun
and the joy of rhyming a smile for everyone.


  1. how Odd
    jacked in the Pod
    the bodies Nod
    with no emotion on their Face
    as if in another Place
    well beyond our inner Space

  2. It must feel odd -
    Two peas in a pod -
    Simultaneous nods,
    A similar face,
    No solitary place,
    Just shared space.

  3. At last I tried one too :-):

    Rhyming to me often feels odd
    I don’t feel like a pea in a pod
    and certainly don’t give it a nod.

    Thought sometimes it sends a smile on my face
    when the words are at last in their place
    and I hope they will find a perfect space.

    Thanks for the prompt


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