I love to write in rhythm and rhyme.
I absolutely do it all of the time.
Why do I do it? It's perfectly clear
It keeps your attention, now doesn't it, dear?
It's fantastically fun to follow along.
It'll get your foot tapping - just like a song.
Listening for rhyme sounds - making the match.
Sparking new connections that open the hatch.
Rhyme is catchy - you'll want an encore.
In the back of your mind, it'll open a door.
Transforming your brain into a think tank
On hyper alert to fill in the ____________.
It'll be ingrained in your brain before you know it
Stuck in your head like the poet who wrote it.
You'll become a word bank bottomless pit
Who pairs up rhyme sounds, lickety split.
My mind has a hayday, it's certainly true.
Concocting the best word potions for you.
Perfecting the rhythm so it'll flow on the go
Will help you remember, now didn't you know?
Well, there you have it, cat's out of the bag
Now it's your turn - get rhyming - TAG!
