Porcupine Valentine

Porcupine Valentine

A Poem by barleygirl
"

inspired by Silente & Emmajoy . . .

"


Twangin’ ragtime on a clothesline
jug o’ lime wine, my lifeline so sublime
not a crime to cream a weary paradigm
windchime brings to mind the maritime
meantime tangles of wild thyme
tweak my freaky mind like a fork tine
each meek rhyme, crusted in grime
you bigtime slime, my partner in crime
don’t you dare whine over the shine
on these nine dozen swine
or I’ll sic a canine to redefine
your hairline with an incline
while twirling twine ‘round your concubine
who’s not inclined to refuse moonshine
wildly intertwined on the borderline
my gender-reassigned valentine
like a porcupine that must recline
in a knotty pine with a storyline.

You Rock! Great beat and rhyme double time for this rap sublime Margie! You killed it! Silente and emmajoy should be so proud of you. Great form, beat, musicality , whimsy and of course Mad Rhyme going on in here. Did you say gender-reassigned porcupine?? Whaaaaat?! Brilliant girl!

Nice rhymes,
story showing through the lines.
Now,
if I could find a rhyme for tortoise,
not that I would notice.

"or I’ll sic a canine to redefine
your hairline with an incline"... This line alone made this a worthwhile read, love the wordplay throughout as well!

Nothing like a new avenue of inspiration to make our pens move in new ways.
Did you just say "gender-reassigned valentine"...? Holy s**t, hahahahaha... You win the rhyming for the week... I was part of the inspiration for this...!?!? Holy cows with bells... I feel blessed to have read such a smattering of twists and turns... Proud, Annette says...? I AM CHEERING AT FULL VOLUME! You slayed the syllable dragon here, Barley...

You here got a fun rhyme
for a merry ol' time,
with you jug o' lime wine
we can party on the dime
with a hip-hop, wigglebop, fancy conga line,
while a portly porcupine is dressed up to the nines-
all juiced up, spruced up, looking in his prime,
with the scents of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
wafting through the windows as the trinkets chime
seven, eight, nine, ten, round to midnight as a sign
all agog like golliwog the time for bed is nigh.

I've writ my fair share of absurdity. Just posted one even ("Poetic Dada")
I start to get a bit worried when I start to think in rhyme because I know its a symptom of getting manic but II think there are worse symptoms to have! Its great just to let it rip once in a while without worrying about it all making sense! Great fun poem.
Cheers,
Alan

Uh! Thank you Emmajoy for inspiring this write.

At this point, "windchime brings to mind the maritime
meantime tangles of wild thyme
tweak my freaky mind like a fork tine
each meek rhyme, crusted in grime" I felt like i was listening with my mind to a hiphop artist Jamal in Empire cast.

Does one incline to define one who can shine with such a mine of rhyme as you did in each line this time as simply sublime, or can one opine that by this careful design you are still in your prime.??

Gotcha!!! (((Hugs)))
