Trick-Slick-Nick-Tick-sick

Never miss a Trick
Stay focused and be Slick
Don't trust men with the name Nick
especially the one's with a Tick
They clearly are quite Sick

cute one Annie!!!

scale - veil - wail - sail - pail - rail - jail - mail

Well you see officer,
 
it all started with this scale
she was dressed up pretty in her dress and veil
I surely didn't want to hear her wail
tell the truth, she said, or I'll just set sail
well ... I did, then she hit me with this pail
that's when I pushed her over the rail
now here I am sitting in jail

believe me officer ...

this is the LAST time I'll trust the mail !

next word:  light

I went back and reread all of the entries of this thread.  I LOVE them all -- so much fun, that I felt your excitement (and my own) with each new post.  This was truly a challenge.  In an effort to bring it back to "life" I want to change it up a bit.



New Guidelines:
2 stanzas, 6 lines each, with a 2 line verse at the end.

Verse 1 (6 lines):
The last word in each line will rhyme.

Verse 2 (6 lines):
The first word of each line will begin with the last word of each line from the first verse and will be used in reverse order (see my example below, the colors will stand out and be an easy guide.
The last word in each line will rhyme (but will not rhyme with the words in the first verse)

Verse 3 (2 lines, summary of 1st 2 verses, or completion of thought):
The last word of this line will be the same as the last word of line 1 in verse 1
The last word of this line will be the same as the last word of line 1 in verse 2

Here's my first attempt.  Next person, choose your own words to use.  Don't get complicated on your rhyming words - pick words easy to rhyme.  Have FUN!!



light - kite - plight - white - fight - write
rhyme - time - lime - mime - dime - climb

Stopped in to read, and saw the light
words on the page, soared high as a kite
felt the desire, felt everyone's plight
placed on the page in black and white
searched my mind, but had to fight
for my mind to work, my fingers to write

Write what you feel, speak it in rhyme
fight to regain what you lost over time
white overpowered with lemon and lime
plight of the visual, acted out by a mime
kite tails flowing, not costing a dime
light shining brightly, I started to climb

out of the shadows, straight to the light
muse awakened, speaking in rhyme.

Ohhhh you are the task master. I'm going to have to study up on this. It does appear to be a challenge.
I'll bet elise would be good at this.
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.
