The Voice Of

I have said all in rhyme that one ought to say
But a small voice within me say rhyme on today
The voice of addiction has me in it's spell
For to add to my numbers of rhyme doggerel
I must be addictive to keep penning rhyme
I have written so many over decades of time
To keep penning rhyme in me there is this need
One addicted by nature is addicted indeed
To say i enjoy rhyming is not telling a lie
And i hope to be doing it until the day i do die
And though i only write rhymes for the love of it never for pay
What i enjoy doing why should i give away
Though a poet in the true sense i never can be
It was my love of rhyme made a rhymer of me.
