Neither Here Nor There (A Shakespearean Sonnet)

I'd love to write a sonnet,
Making rhymes so easy.
I'd love to wear a bonnet,
But nothing that was sleazy.
I'd love to win a pony
And rent it out to babies.
I'd hate to be too bony,
Or covered with the scabies.
I'd like for things to warrant
Great praise from every man.
But sometimes there's a torrent
Of things I'd like to ban.
What do you do about that?
Just put on your pork pie hat.

Shakespearean sonnets were in pentameter..... :^)

Really what I was after was a paperback version of a leather bound form.

Perhaps I should have said, "a fourteen line poem with a Shakespearean rhyme pattern (as opposed to Italian.)
