Significance of D Rhyme Line

What can be said about Ronovan placing “Prize” in the D rhyme line? – Apparently a lot!

In summation word will stand alone,
Outcome of facts obtained before.
Its significance hard to ignore
In word play it’s hard to dethrone!
In rhyming scheme it is well known,
It’s not the first, second, or third,
An accumulation what’s occurred.
Now we don’t want to rhapsodize,
It is time to award the prize,
To say more would just be absurd.

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 315 – Chimpanzee / Kiss

White House chimpanzee
Sits behind his right shoulder
– There to kiss his ring

He never questions orders
Makes a perfect running mate

La Piscina Décima

Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #13
“True” In C rhyme line

pool-party

La Piscina

In bright sun, the blue summer pool
A vinyl cooler, filled with a hose.
Hidden respite to shed some clothes
Dream of cold water I’m no fool.

This oasis is my jewel
A hidden scheme some say it’s true
Though it’s plastic we still make do.
Now jealous neighbors come around
It’s bought at Wal-Mart so they frown
So we wade and bid them adieu

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 312 – Intent / Thought

Distant meadowlark’s
Sweet singing captures my thoughts
-Who cares the intent

No reason for mountain view
No answers for a sunrise

Double-Down Don

You won the office most thought you’d lose
By making statements, you played the news.
You made big promises, it’s quite a list
Orders to Senate, let nothing be missed.

First thing to do is turn back the clock
Cancel all programs, old solutions to block.
Claim the economy is going quite bad
Obama’s solutions at best were a fad.

If a memo’s reviewed by the leftwing press
Just who’s to know – you made a quick guess.
They checked the answer you thought would fly,
So question questions, and continually deny.

Pandemic is peaking you took to the mike
Ignoring experts, deaths continued to spike.
Cotton smudged makeup, not good for your look
Pence wears a mask, you think he’s a snook.

So many people your inaction has killed
You blame the governors, claim they’re unskilled.
You act like a loser, you act like a clown
So many wrong answers, The Don doubles-down!
