An Elf Named Nick
matthew144

My second and last ditty regarding the term "Nicknack"

There was an Elf whose name was Nick
 1
He had a nack it was a trick
 2
He'd charm his way into your heart
 3
Then leave  at night when it was dark
 4
 
 
He did this once unto a lass
 5
Who put a spell on nicks low class
 6
So when he tried his trick again
 7
He turned to stone and not a gem
 8
 
 
She put him up upon a shelf
 9
With other things that have no wealth
 10
Now all that own this little man
 11
Knows just now where  this elf does stand

This story was really cute; it really made me laugh and had an Irish fairy tale feel to it. The rhyming did seem forced, though, especially in line 2. I think this piece would still flow nice if not ALL the lines rhymed. You could do loose rhymes or just "get lazy" and go a few lines without rhyming.

Rather cute until the last stanza which is a bit lame. Must go read about Nack.

i wouldn't mind these poems so much if the rhyming wasn't forced...but it is and they're really hard to read without stumbling...plus theres not much thought behind them
