The Rhyming Dictionary: A Poem

I got a rhyming dictionary,
Pretty as can be.
Hopefully I'll learn how to rhyme
So they aren't so stinky.

More times than not they're stretches
Desperation's obvious
I'm looking now, oh dang! Can't find
A rhyme for "obvious"!

I flip through pages frantically
Oh, what word should I try?
Do "Bay Stater" and "satyr" work?
Nuh-uh, that sure won't fly.

Perhaps, I think, I'll just give up
This whole poetry breed.
But then what use will this book have?
At least it's fun to read...

The End
