Conceived by aesthetic beauty,
Often divine and esoteric in nature;
That comprehensive...

to master limericks
counting words an arduous affair...

A leash on Brownie’s collar,

No rhyme
	This time.

Re-thought
	Still naught.

Read books
	Got looks.

Brain nap
	A sap?

More rest
	Flunked test.

Online
	Not fine.

Didn’t learn
	Still yearn.

Free verse
	Got worse.

Poet?
	Forget.

Tried hard
	No bard!
