Et cetera

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!! _____ What??? you say I have a chance to give my poem another glance and add a word or add a phrase and maybe set this poem ablaze to earn a smidge of Russell's praise?? I'll light my muse with fire-crackers! Blow the words right off the paper! He will gasp! Then, I will ask! "Russell dear, please tell me here... if I've passed this test at last!!??" ____________________________________________
By Carrie Richards Original poem....."Russell's 5 mintues are up!"
