How to get from Bard to Verse

How to get from Bard to Verse

Think it, ink it, link it – grow it ,
Write it, cite it, reap it – sow it,
Re-verse it, rehearse it, re-peat it – re-rig it,
Re-do it, renew it, revise it – re-jig it.
Spoof it, proof it, return it – reject it,
Inspect it, correct it, select it – respect it.

Rhyme it, mime it; time it – pace it;
Fuse it, blues it, – drum & bass it;
Parse it, class it, rock it – roll it,
Push it, pull it, jazz it – soul it.

Waltz it, schmalz it, hip it – hop it;
R & B it – body-pop it,
Trance it, Dance it – doh-see-doh it;
Funk it, punk it – Status Quo it.

Talk it, walk it, see it – view it,
Hear it, say it, bite it – chew it,
Stroke it, folk it, say it – do it;
Rap it, tap it – I love you it.

Advertise it – spot promote it;
Merchandise it (if you wrote it) –
Type it, hype it, pimp it – play it,
Tell it, sell it: Hello and OK! it.

Get it, flaunt it, catch it – throw it;
Shout it, tout it – quid pro quo it;
Jam it, spam it, know it, show it:
Slam it: damn it –
You’re a poet!
