Russell's 5 minutes are up

5 short minutes is not enough
to write a verse and make it sound
pleasing to the ear, I've found!
A little free verse will have to do,..... held together with some glue!

For Russell's contest, I will rush
but with Russell's small allotted time
I can't find the words to rhyme
Oh, look I did it!! ..see those words? 
Time and Rhyme they turned out good!  Please don't say this is absurd!

my dilemma is that clock
ticking tocking.....time is up
Gotta go now.......wish me luck!!

5/13/13   4 can probably tell !!!!!

    That is the first rule of writing ha ha If you can't think of something to write...write about not being able to write. Clever entry and good luck Carrie.
