Every time I see this
I paste it
victory will soon be ours
I can taste it

They always tell me
don’t rhyme
but I’ve never found anything
so sublime
as the power of my forced rhyme

So the next time they tell you
just don’t do it
you can tell them
I said screw it

For even if I’m left
with a trite cliché
with one thin dime
and nothing else to say

I’ll rhyme
and rhyme
and rhyme

These ain’t great words
but at least they’re mine
