Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. 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.

*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.

Our rhyming words this week are:

  1. batch
  2. catch
  3. hatch
  4. match
  5. patch
  6. thatch

===============================

I had to thatch a patch

I hoped that it would match

So, I mixed up a batch of thatch

Before the chicken eggs would hatch

Remembering also to put in a window catch

What a Mess

The following was written for a challenge called Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.

 

The classroom was a zoo

the teacher had loose screws

she didn’t know what to do

The classroom was a mess

Looked like a tornado, no less

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
