Locks Rhyme Time

The following poem was written for a challenge over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie called Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time.

You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

The words are mock, shock, stock, lock, hock, and block.

I stood in shock

looking down the block

Hock Wine


Taking stock

of all the locks

on the dock

Surely this was a mock

Needed now, a glass of hock

      1. As my grandpa used to say, you can call me whatever you want, as long as it’s not too late. I guess in his day that hadn’t been so often said and still retained its freshness. 🙂
        And I certainly prefer Crisp, to Chris.
