Locks Rhyme Time

The following poem was written for a challenge over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie called Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time.

You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

The words are mock, shock, stock, lock, hock, and block.

I stood in shock

looking down the block


Taking stock

of all the locks

on the dock

Surely this was a mock

Needed now, a glass of hock

  2. Nicely done! Love locks as we call them. Though it’s not allowed, couples come and leave locks on the Brooklyn Bridge.

      • As my grandpa used to say, you can call me whatever you want, as long as it’s not too late. I guess in his day that hadn’t been so often said and still retained its freshness. 🙂
        And I certainly prefer Crisp, to Chris.

        • My dad always said, call me whatever you want just make sure you don’t call me late for dinner. 🙂

          • Ah-ha, more specific, not wanting to miss dinner. I’m guessing he was a more practical man than my dreamer of a grandpa 🙂
