Verse and worse

``Whatever,'' mused the oracle, ``would rhyme with `tumbler'?''
``I know,'' said his pupil, ``why don't you try `bumbler'?''
And so on they did joust, with such mental alacrity
That they tied in a contest, for Rhyme King Of The Ditty

The clock thought now what rhymes with time,
At the top of the hour it began to chime,
Time was pondering what rhymes with clock,
As seconds went by tick tock tick tock.

They spoke in rhyme for the rest of their lives
Much to the annoyance of their loving wives
But they forgot and spoke to all in verse
And found it hard to throw in reverse
And speak in normal words and prose
As thoughts and conversation arose.

I think you would win such a title, don't you?
Maybe Eddie as a second runner up!
In a hurry today........

Then they marvelled
At the absolute simplicity
