4 in less than forty

1 Have to be somewhere in 40 mins Enough time to write at least one Fortunately I’m not using and pens Else I would not be close to done Of course you see the form I write One familiar yet still complicated It should be easy I write every night Why my poems are often post dated Halfway there only three minutes gone Can I write eleven of these in my time Maybe but could I post them all as well Not sure, but I wouldn’t even bet a dime The last I didn’t rhyme of first and third I will admit I normally will rhyme abab But in my amount of time that’s absurd I am trying to finish quickly as you see 2 I already finished one how about another The next line already in my head of course Now you are probably saying o brother This guy is a distinct body member of a horse Really it’s just practice and having a bit of fun I am definitely bored at this very early hour I’m also texting a friend here and think of pun I’d tell her what I think, but she might be sour The last of course was purely a joke my friend No evil thoughts currently in my head Miss PD I at present, do not have that emotion to lend Or maybe it was serious the last stanza hehehe This is so much fun, a great way to pass time You should try it, if you would possibly dare I have said time a million times in my rhyme Take time reading them, go ahead and stare

Awe, this sounds like more fun than the other. Still :-) I enjoy both of them. I love the way you thought of this in less than 40 min. Hope you meet your marker. I noticed that a few of the lines on the first part don't rhyme. However, I also noticed that PD and hehehe do rhyme... ha ha.. love this one,... I wish i had what it took to do free verse rhyme.. or this form.. for now I will stare... LOL....xox~PD

Yes, technically the quatrain only has to rhyme on the second and fourth line. Since I was used to writing in shakespearean sonnet form, they rhyme abab, cdcd,efef,gg, hence the abab remark lol. Thanks for the comment.
