Poetry challenge from Anna Roseboro – write a Lazy Sonnet, one word per line, 14 lines in the scheme of ABAB CDCD EFEF GG ending with a rhyming couplet. 

I tried for one word – – but still have too much baggage for that one-word sonnet suitcase. I also failed in my Lazy Sonnet because I added an extra set of rhymes to make it GHGH II at the ending.
