Rumwords:
This is a poem type that uses numbers and words.The rules are; the number ‘one’must rhyme with the last word ‘done’.
Interestingly it is not restricted to number of lines.A poet could write 14 lines or 6 lines,provided the number on each line rhymes with the word.
One,I am the only poet whose words are gated with pun.
Two, uniqueness can’t be found in this poetic world too.
Three is a crowd,likewise the other two stripes revolving round the tree.
Four,creative pencils I seemingly adore
Five stiches for envious bodies who hide envy in the hive
Thirteen dollars in millions to elevate the glorious teen.
Thirty shekels of silver couldn’t afford my pieces, for it was gold plated by Thirsty.-Rachel Charles

“Child of Wealth”
Child of wealth,gush of mystery
Blessed as the bedrock of words
Seamstress of soft tales
Coral of stubborn charm

Child of wealth,maiden of art
Cursed with a needy muse
Towncrier of charity and hope
Wild soul of thoughts…of love

Child of wealth,the ambivert one
Unclear as the hazy harmattan sun
She learns in the classrooms of time
Shaped with grace,i am child of wealth…-Omolola

I do love the sweet songs that silence sing
In time it sets my soul free, soaring high
Chains and binds broken, my hands sting, quills bleed
Poems are my sight, for they bring me to light.
Bit the quiet nights bye, ring of stars awaits
Swine’s feet with a ring, I must now awake
Now set to swing and sway, find my heart beat
A new wing, flip-flop, tick-tock time won’t stop
Whistling while I dawdle down this life’s wild
Bing! The night of life will come, time to fly. Tee2emm
