I honour of me getting the Ode Less Traveled I thought we could try this rhyming exercise/game a mate and me used to play in most German and math classes way back in the days. It's a way of writing long and weird poems, often bouncing of in unexpected directions and ending in weird ways, rather like the three word game.

It starts with one person writing three lines, two that rhymes and one for the next person to find something to rhyme with, like:

I once found a man under my shoe
properly fastened with tape and with glue
I wondered briefly who left him there...


And then the next person writes the two next lines in much the same manner...

...before I ripped him of by the strands of his hair
and lifted him up to stare in my face...


And such it goes on and on.

If anybody want's to play, they can continue the poem above, or the one below, which might be more fitting for this forum, I don't know. Just pick the one that seems most fun to continue and works best.

I know it would be the most glorious day
But If I ever met Stephen I wouldn't know what to say
My knees would shiver and my stomach flutter...

Beautiful thing, the destruction of words.

My contribution:

A voice that turns my brain into butter
Blue eyes reduce my voice to a sputter
And if all that really isn't enough....

...I would only be able to utter a cough
a hideous sound from the pit of my dread...

I did it wrong, didn't I? Ok, just two lines, one to rhyme with yours and a new one of my own.

...I would only be able to utter a cough
a hideous sound from the pit of my dread...

Then swirling sensations locked in my head
I'd tried to look him straight in the face...

while struggling to keep up with his pace.
At this point he'd notice how desperate I am

He'll kindly get me out of my jam,
And send me off with a cheery smile

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

then on to a well-cooked meal

then running back to the place we met

A lovely spot we couldn't forget
Then off to Manchester we would go

Our moods often high but sometimes low
Till we arrived at our destination.

I have a cunning plan!

After a while we found our way
Only to find that we'd got lost

In a fit of picque

We proceeded down the right trail
