No rhyme or reason!

You think you're so terribly clever.
You take photos all of the time.
But one thing - it is clear - you will never,
Is get me to pose for a rhyme!

I like long words that mean something,
like hyperbole, frowsty and squinch.
But if you continue to bug me,
I'll turn into Austin the Grinch.

So now that we've had this discussion,
I trust you now understand,
that rhyming is not so important
As making sure that all the words like sorta scan ... kinda!




hyperbole - hyper.bowl.lee = an unusually energetic dish

  1. You tell her Austin. Looks like your staff better fish out a dictionary for some extra long words for you. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Um, but Austin, I'd just like to gently point out that you rhymed throughout your whole post. I'm sure that was just to show her that you can rhyme, and quite well, but you prefer those long words instead.

  41. Austin, I see you have your mom well in hand. That is of course, as it should be. Tell her how it is and things will go accordingly.

    Hyper Bowl. Made mom here laugh out loud! VERY energetic I would say. xxoox

  42. Hyperbole... lol. I've forgotten about the word a long long time ago.

    And what in the world is a frowsty?!?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Austin, it's hard work getting bipeds trained. I like today's definition - I think it describes my bowl when it's empty and I want the bipeds to do something about it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's telling her!! Uhm, can we turn down Faraday's hyper-bowl over here, just a degree or two? ;-)
