Thanks to McK13 for the word 'Barbecue' to start this piece!

Please suggest another one in the comments if you'd like, if it rhymes well and is different from the others in the series I'll most likely pick it :)

10th piece in the series!!

Rhymes With 'Barbecue'

March 31, 2021


On a hot day, I happened to cook some barbecue.

The sky was nice and blue,

And I really had nothing else to do.

I brew some stew,

Put on my shoe,

And picked some tomatoes that I grew.

I thought briefly about Winnie the Pooh. 

What would he do, on a day so beautiful where the wind gently blew?

I finally ate my meal, staring at the crows who flew.

The bright flashing colors of the day, dimming in their hue.

I sat out there for awhile, before I decided to bid the night adieu

With my back to the moon, I slept for another day to begin anew.

    This is so cool! It's great how you did a whole series with it. You could do one that rhymes with Covid-19. Keep on writing!

    We're on 10!!! I love this rhyme, and how it has this deeper meaning......

    I was going to suggest 'Fool', but then saw it was already given, so..... What about 'Math'?

    I'm sorry, that's really random, but I kinds like math (don't kill me) and I'd find it fun :)
