    Default [non Pokémon poem] Rhyme at any other cost

    Oh what a cruel day it is,
    When parts of words are sacrifiz
    For the sake of forcing rhyme
    Without regard for sentence lime.

    And if you think that meter's safe,
    Don't bet on it, those extra syllables really chafe.
    Even words that fit the grammar
    Don't make sense when put in hammer.

    About the only thing that's worse
    And happens in a lot of verse
    Is many poets' tendency
    To rhyme with phrases like, you see.

    And don't dare think that you'll be fine
    With ABCB rhyming schemes.
    It's much more easy than it words
    To swap a couplet's last two seems.
    The lengths that poets sometimes go
    To make two sentences rhyme-o.
    Be cautioned, poem-writing blokes,
    That you don't make the same mistokes.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Great parody and quite witty. I only wish it was a little longer.
