Now the Lego House Bonanza from @stlux has passed it's time for a boring simple old bonusball.

For those who don’t know the rules, write your answer below and the first 59 entrants will get a number. This is open worldwide.  And the bonus ball from the UK lottery on Saturday night will decide the winner. I'm running out of poly's so the winner will receive a CMF out of the ones I got.

Now on to this week's challenge. A bit like the creative writing contest we did a while ago, I'm going for a creative rhyming contest. I want to see what kind of poem you Bricksetters can come up with. Everyone should write 2 lines. The first line of your rhyme should rhyme with the last line of the previous writer, your second one can be anything you like.

Hope it's clear.

Please press refresh before you post though, just to make sure no one got there before you. Please no double posts untill 59 has been reached.

On to our Poem

An ode to Brickset.

Brickset is were we like to be

    @stlux is sending me a LEGO tree...

    [Which I accept happily.]
    [With much anticipated glee.]
    [And shall bring balance to my chi.]

    Numero four, I decree.
    I wonder if the Bonusballs hear my plea.

    Not chance, I say to thee

    @SumoLego's already got an answer in.

    (Just to check that I've got this right, only the first answer has to rhyme with the last of the previous post. If not ignore my post and I'll find a corner to stand in shame).

    And what happens if the next answer doesn't rhyme with the previous post?

    @snowhitie's rhyming has me vexed,
    I hope no one uses the word orange
  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    SprinkleOtter wonders: what kind of sh#t would end on "orange?" ;)
    Ah, well, at least it wasn't @Pitfall69.

    Any guesses on how many more UCS rehashes Lego will make?

    I am a very happy Bricksetter
    Even though I’ve not been on here in a week because half term is absolutely manic for us so this is an ode to apologise and also to end the verse on the word orange.

    Would I rather have Lego or learn to sing
    Is Lego worth more than a tiny gold ring
    Or am I just cheap in material way
    Either case, with Lego I shall now play!
  • SirBenSirBen In the Hall of the Mountain KingMember Posts: 551
    In my Lego I have the One Ring,
    It made the Gollum wail and sing.
    While some may seek that ring of power,
    I just want to play with my plastic bricks for a quiet hour.

    Like He-Man said, “I have the power!”

    So I'm late to the party and slow on the get go,

    I may have rhymed and just about saved face

    My answer, I write

    In the middle of the night.

    Will it make sense? Not quite.

      In your defence you're quite right,
    though I'd never start a fight.
      I'm not calling anyone fools,
    Perhaps they just didn't read the rules?

    (thanks for hosting @snowhitie!)

    All the way from Spain comes the orange,
    But I much prefer the brick from Billund.
