A prose poem by

Late in the night
Going back in time
Thinking about all I've done
Reflecting upon my crimes.

To Right the wrongs
I must confess
my Sins.
my guilt
to those whom I betrayed.

Why do I feel the guilt
After I’m done with the deed?
Who has sowed in my soul
this conscience’s seed?

Why now?
When its too late
To right the wrongs
To confess

This was great. It made me want to try my hand at rhyming, haha! The only thing that I was certain was, was it over all American icons, ('Doolittle', Pepe Le Pew, Moon pies) or was it just supposed to be fairy tale characters? Other than that, they flow and structure was great.

My work is kind of all over the place. I tend to let my mind leap outside the box from time to time. You can sometimes come up with some good ideas that way. If you'd seen some of my earlier work you'd know what I mean. As a challenge give this rhyming stuff a try. I'd love to read what you can come up with. I never thought in a million years that I'd be writing rhymes and poems; yet I am.

It was hard at first to get in the flow, but in the end this was very entertaining. You have talent, sir.
