'Time for a new word!:

tittle      [tit-l]

noun

1.   a dot or other small mark in writing or printing, used as a diacritic, punctuation, etc.
2.   a very small part or quantity; a particle, jot, or whit: He said he didn't care a tittle.


[Origin: bef. 900; ME titel, OE titul < ML titulus mark over letter or word. See title]


This time I don't give a tittle if you use the new word over the next two weeks or not!

I will spend a little time and fiddle with a riddle and a rhyme.
Well, I haven't the time to piddle with a riddle, unles you can spare a dime.
Or is the correct word "fiddle"? Poor use of a word is surely a crime.
I'll whittle down a riddle while I consume my vittles with lime.
Then pause for a mo' and belittle the art of the mime.
So I will piddle and fiddle with a riddle that I will whittle a little
and somewhere in the middle I will use a tittle and eat my vittles
including peanut brittle and watch the spittle for germ transmittal and slime.

That last one is fun to say.  :roflol:

Niiiiice, JD!


It was sublime at the time to rhyme so part-time!
No way a crime so to chime on a dime all the time....
But i feel like a heel to make a real deal
(unreal and surreal - by far not ideal!)
of that rhyme without grime that was really quite prime!
Sans slime - even one time - I'm impressed by your mime!

Then I peal off a squeal just to see if she'll wheel.
Tho reveal her steel with real force that I feel
I should climb back in time, and forgive me my crime
that I rhyme on a dime, I'm guilty of mime,
a little aquittal - a brittle commital!
...No intent to belittle! ... Not even a tittle.

 ;D

Umm I am no grammar expert and poetry is in the ear of the beholder and at the whim of the writer, but...

MrMxy, did you forget a tittle after your second crime? I was thinking a comma more than a period?
