A Poolacious Trick


Sparrow

One easy way to write a sonnet is

to simply invent words to end some of

the lines -- for example, the term "gerizz" --

which will rhyme with the word two lines above.

Instead of struggling to find a noun

(or other word) which rhymes, you make one up,

and then your poem is unique, upside-down

or sideways, or any way! "Ackilupp"

has a great sound, somewhat Germanic, or

even Dr. Seuss-ish, for example.

(Also, you may give the word any number

of syllables, which helps, in poems.) Ample

imaginary words exist, don't fret!

One of my favorites is "vilibet."
