Sonnet #1

 

I cannot write a good Iambic line
Manhattan would be nice without the crime
I gave up writing due to lack of time
I can't afford a brush or turpentine
Your swimming pool is twice the size of mine
Hey buddy, how much is the Sunday Times
Aw, that guy writes down anything that rhymes
May I please have another glass of wine?

I thought I'd pen a sonnet on a lark
My company is doing very well
Spend summer on the archipelago
Hey Lady? Spare a Quarter? Go to Hell!
The sonnet was perfected by Petrarch
Excuse me but you're standing on my toe
