A DREAM LIKE NO OTHER

Above the clouds and disappearing skyline I was jetsetting on an international airline That’s when I met a handsome Mr. Einstein No kin to Albert, nose most perfectly aquiline Said he was looking for a concubine The whole thing to be utmost clandestine I accused him of bringing onboard some moonshine Then he just whined and became somewhat of a swine So I moved and sat next to charming Clementine Offered me truffle chocolate I did decline She then casually asked me to invest in her gold mine Slipped me a form I refused to countersign ‘Twas awkward but the damage had been benign I discreetly moved on to an empty seat just fine Where I was greeted by glamorous Calvin Klein Pointed to his window at a view sublimely alpine Not another word was spoken, ‘twas utterly divine I almost commented on the beauty of his ring so opaline But opted to avoid a dialogue with risk to end up asinine The silence was as grand and majestic as any shrine I slept and rested with the help of a bit of wine Got home in time to greet my favourite canine And join in to sing Auld Lang Syne Home Sweet Home, starshine of my lifeline Submitted this February, 2018

I cannot imagine finding all of these two syllable words that rhymed, but you did an amazing job, Line. Good one!

GREAT use of sustained monorhyme, Line! After such experiences on a plane, the sight of a pet would be most welcome, I'm sure! Janice
