He's Only Six but He's...

The Human Tape Recorder

by closetpoetjester


Words verbatim his ambition
Phrase and lyrics perfect order
Stashing speech with repetition
He's my human tape recorder

Only six, but quite the hoarder
Verse linguistics, his nutrition
Vocal songbird, no defrauder
Words verbatim, his ambition

New-Age Recall Word Technician
Conversational marauder
Faultless audio transmission
Phrase and lyrics, perfect order

English language growing broader
Bold recital, each submission
Memory, endless, sans a border
Stashing speech with repetition

Monologues no imposition
Garner, stockpile, use, re-order
Chronicled with mind's permission
Tiny human tape recorder

Dialoguing, his disorder
Recollection, his condition
Rhyme retrieving star awarder
All without the intermission

Words verbatim...



Yes, it's quite evident I am living with a pint sized human tape-recorder.

His memory is handy at times but then again, it does come back to bite me on the arse as well.

This is a modified Rondeau Redouble. It consists of six stanzas in iambic meter.
Each line of the first stanza becomes the last line of each consequent stanza.
There is one additional stanza plus a refrain at the end which is the first half of the first line.
Oh, my modification is the change to the last line in the second to last stanza.
Got all that? Phew! Hope so.
I ain't repeating it.

BTW the little darling photoshopped into a tape recorder DOES actually belong to me...

Thanks for reading...
