A little romance?
With flagrant fashion faux pas,
You haven't a chance.

She had worn a bra

She'd been in her happy place:
The stream where she fished.

Or was that your pad?

You seem to being having problems following directions, boson. If this isn't intentional, but rather a lack of understanding as to what constitutes a rhyme, here is a site that lists lots of rhymes for lots of words. Just enter the word you want a rhyme for and pick a rhyme word from the pure rhymes section. It's so simple that even I can do it.

I had a better
Outcome when I followed the
Rules to the letter.

Thank you, Darkon. I am duly humbled.

When I follow those
rules, fewer eyes roll at the
nut. That’s how it goes.

I don’t use words like
Defenestrate. It’s pretentious
And unsportsmanlike.

Donald Trump. Ump his.

Snow balls and snow forts.

Three hundred fifty
Rent on a one bedroom house?
That price is nifty!
