There once was a challenge for all to try
Put in place long ago, far back in time
With few rules for challengers to defy,
All they had to do was write a few rhymes.
Alas, not many could be called poets
They struggled with their wordy endeavor
'Twas not hard for onlookers to notice
Their trouble with putting words together
Of course, things are rarely simple and clean
Even with poems, things aren't what they seem.
So if they ever scoff at your attempts,
You may rightfully view them with contempt.
