Is it alright for me to rhyme?

'Is it alright for me to rhyme?' by Leon Wing

Is it alright for me to rhyme?
Is it okay right now, and time
To go ahead and put one word
After the next, and watch a cord
Of silly syllables all strung
Together, line by line, all hung
Inside one little stanza, bold
As brass, so twee I shudder, cold.

    Gosh, you do? I really enjoyed working on it. I seldom - almost never - work with this many rhymes, or this sort of rhyming scheme before. I thought I'd give a go at it, and make the surface scheme all swinging and rolling. But beneath the lines there is another layer, something a little sombre and dark.
