Alex, the only rule here is that we don't need no stinkin' rules and everyone seems to agree except the occasional pedant.
A clever sentence would be welcomed by all so try it.
What are they gonna do...pout? laugh

With engine's roar, cowlings a-clanking,
North Korea tried upping its ranking.
They attempted spaceflight;
To the free world's delight,
They embarrassingly got a spanking.

Only a geophalous* scalawag would say that the scarlet letter is a sign worn by adulteresses. My friends in Tuscaloosa know better. The scarlet letter is the Crimson A that proudly proclaims the advent of a repeating National Football Champion - the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide.

Young ladies flash flesh,
Wirecutters mash mesh,
Old ladies pat pets,
Fruit pickers pack pecks.

I coulda been somebody; coulda been a contender
Coulda made some movies and become a big spender
I'd be like Stanley Kubrick
And make up my own rubric
I'd ruffle the baddest man on Earth after my transgender grin

I traded a used xylophone
For a two-valve B-flat bass trombone
And a yardstick of steel:
Now each measure is REAL!
I only play deep in the zone.

God made the cosmos single-handed;
From a minuscule dot it expanded.
Divine exhalation
Caused rapid inflation
(More like a huge sneeze, to be candid).
