Rhyme crime by Grant Harbison

I is a bad poet doin’ time for failin’ to rhyme
It don’t be the first time
I been here before for the same damn crime
It don’t be like I is lazy
It’s fixin’ them words to fit that be makin’ me crazy
Judge be sayin’ I’s to blame
And tells me to hang my head in shame
Says, “Write me a rhyme and you better not fail!”
Then sends me down to the county jail
But I been here two weeks and I still ain’t done nothin’
Just been scratchin’ my head and huffin’ and puffin’
Never figured rhymin’ would be so hard
All I ever wanted to be is a bard
Wait a minute
