Incidental Rhymes on Birthday Time

On this blog
The regular reader may know
Rhymes are a no show  
and tho she may grieve
on the eve
of  birthday number thirty one,
Blaming , maybe her mum
and  dad,
(she hastens to add)
this blogger went mad
racking her brain
(almost had a migraine)
came up with a rhyme horribly bad
still, before she went to bed
she took the the time
to re read this rhyme
and pressed publish instead
so go on
wish her a happy one
and after you do
read on,wont you
little did she know
what led her to do it
you know,
show up her inner po it.

Now that it’s done
She looks around to tag
who else,but new mum
Come on, show us
open up the bag, 
and dig out a pome
dont be shy,
let fly
even your worst
wont be as bad
or sad
as this verse



  1. Happy birthday Mini. Hope the year ahead is a great great one! :DWas this a tag? What kind?

  2. Thanks GM 😀 This was just a spontaneous outburst in verse,as the natural consequence of some comments,which began with some accidental rhyme,and got longer each time,there was a response ;)See I am not a po'it,but sometimes ,I just spout rhyme.Would you like to be taggedAnd do a post in rhyme?Go on , good or bad,I do read yours, each time .

  3. WOW! Even the reply is a rhyme, please don't ask me to do it. I will sink in shame!

  4. GM:D 'twas just a game,no need to sink in shame,Like you,I too am mostly averseto things verse,but the rhyme just arose,and since the feeling is mutual,it's back to prose,business is now as usual.

  5. wow!! How do you do this???? :):)Happy Bday!

  6. Piper,Thanks, had a great b'day.See normally rhyming isn't my wayNo, they're more the pater's styleThough once in a while,the genes they kick outThat's when some silly rhymes I spout,Once begun, I must admit,tis pretty hard to stop,Oh hell, I'll have to do itelse madly the pop will hop" now come here child"he'll say in a tone not very mild"every time I show you mine,on your heels you twirl,with quite a clatterclaimin' to rhyme,the grey matterin your skull,otherwise porous, is absolutely impervious"

  7. BElated Birthday Wishes!!This is hillarious!

  8. Thanks Trishfor the b'day wisha response in rhyme,or was it accidental, like mine?;)

  9. Oh Mini,Awfully sorry at missing out on the big three-O-one!!Belated wishes nevertheless :DDon't even think of asking me to rhyme two lines. I suck at it BIG time!!

  10. Oh it was Mini’s birthdayOn March fifteenth, not todayI am late by the wayIn wishing her on her special dayBut does it matter, as they sayBeing late is better any daySo I am here to wish you Min-ayHappiness forever on this dayIts late I cannot keep sleep at bayI should now go awayIf I perchance decide to stayMy words will only go astrayBe always happy as a blue jayBe it March April or MayThere is nothing more I wanna say.So good night dear Min-ay

  11. Thanks Noor,Your wishes, though belatedwere much appreciated.And it's true,If I had my way,I'd respond that very day,but my excuse,(if that's a word I may use)is since to verseIm mostly averseand this post is a first,where reply in verse I must,Much as I may try to train,the grey matter called my brain,'tis the rhymes that choose,at will to vamoose!

  12. Shail,Thanks a lotA b'day wish in rhyme,now thats hot!And even if belated,it left the receiver elated!but hey , says Min-ayyou missed by one more day,'cos, possibly my rhyme wasn't clear,see the b'day, it falls every year,on March the sixteenthand not as you thought,just before you lay on the cot,on the fifteenth!

  13. Hey M,Its taken me five days to come up with the following (seeing that EVERYONE knows how to rhyme, I just had to use the Grey cells and make an attempt!) :-They write some verseThey rhyme it too.They string those wordswithout any glue.It seems so easy, it seems so game.But when I try it,it seems so lame.So tell me folksHow YOU do itWould you care to shareyour rhyme secret?You don't really wanna?then don't give a damn.I'm happy being rhyme-lessas I currently am!!WHEW!!!

  14. Noor, dont sell yourself short,here's a thought-So what if you took a while,To retort in rhyme,As I said ,earlier,The fact is, my dear,In cases such as yours and mine,where verse is not one's style,After putting in lots of effortShould some rhymes result,whether first,second or third rate,It's just cause to celebrate!As for the so called secret,I guess one has to try,to haul out the latent poet,and let the pen fly .And now, quite like you,All I have to say is WHEW!!!

  15. Speechless 😦
