I Do Not Like

Recommended Posts

This is a spin-off of Elizabeth Davinia's thread, "I do not like this snow and slush". Someone, as I do below, leads off with 4 Seuss-like lines, using "I do not like"' "I do so like" or some other construction. Each line must rhyme the same way at the end. Sucessive posts do not have to end with the rhyme of the previous post. The next person adds 4 more lines, sticking to the theme.

 

 

Whenever any of us sees that a theme has worn its course, "THE END" can be typed at the end his/her post . . . and the next post starts with a new theme.

 

 

There's no rule for number of syllables per line, but we should try to keep a certain melodic feel going.

 

 

I'll start:

 

 

I do not like a writer's cramp

 

 

I do no like to stop, revamp,

 

 

I do not like to toss the scrap.

 

 

My basket's full: an "idea camp"!

I do not like just sitting here.

 

 

I do not like growing plants for deer.

 

 

I do not like a dirty mirror.

 

 

This has nothing to do with writing, I fear.

I do not like mere, tidy words,

 

 

I do not like pictureless cheers,

 

 

I do not like what's not penned here.

 

 

We need some more, even the weird!

I do not like wordy effusions.

 

 

I do not like verbal circumlocutions.

 

 

I do not have a strong predilection for, nor am I desirous of, profuse communications.

 

 

In short such things I shun.

I do not like to "like" so free,

 

 

I do not like to post willy-nilly,

 

 

I do not like "What's not to like?", you see.

 

 

That's why I came here: to write more lean.

I do not like too much blandness.

 

 

I do not like lack of standupness.

 

 

I do not like spiceless niceness.

 

 

Lets have more interest and less soporificness.

I do like playing games with words,

 

 

Though some may say it's for the birds

 

 

Or fish, unless they're too absurd,

 

 

But it may just be me who's weird!

I do no not curmudgeonly right,

Give me the room to say, "Hmm, alright!"

I do not like mosquitoes.

 

 

They bite my neck, arms, legs, nose.

 

 

They even bite between toes!

 

 

That's why I like when it snows!

Oh Constance, do you not know,

 

 

We definitely do not like snow!

 

 

So sorry about you bitten nose

 

 

But change the weather before Ragamuser ballistic goes.

But now we have a fire, so

 

 

I laugh at twenty below.

 

 

Do not not like me, Rag, no!

Elizabeth's the only one

 

 

to stop our play; it is too fun.

 

 

You brought me here, now off you run:

 

 

Tell Liz to post or we'll keep on!

You do not like a Liz-less post,

 

 

Still you have posted: to you a toast!

 

 

She seems for this a posting ghost,

 

 

Still, she is here--wait out the coast!

I do so like Liz posts, that's true.

 

 

I do so like this thread by you.

 

 

I do not like to write in lieu

 

 

of 'Lizabeth, but still I do.

So now it seems we begin

 

 

The dreaded filibustering.

 

 

You do not like finishing

 

 

Fear you not what that will bring?

 

 

A catastrophic, never ending,

 

 

Nose diving, tail spin!
