Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein... I miss you my friends,
and dream of a ten turtle stack where the sidewalk ends.
Though I'm now an adult, I miss the sing song of your rhymes.
They teach little lessons and make us talk in time.
So here's my attempt at a silly adult version - a wacky news, silly video, rhyming poetry fusion.
Let's try my new game again... Bouts Rimés means "rhymed ends" in French and is a game or challenge where one person (me) makes a list of rhymed words and others (you) write the lines that end with those rhymes, in the same order in which they were given. It was known as Crambo in English and was quite popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I think we need to bring back this hip historical habit, so I will post this game when I need a break from rhyming riddles and abstract photography. I hope you enjoy the change of game!
