So he took to the mic
and he said. “There is a fracas
going down in Caracas.”
It got quite a chuckle 
but my spirit began to buckle 
at the cheapness of his language.
Because tonight in Venezuela 
there is no food and children are dead.
Where’s the rhyme and reason in that? 


Ahem...fracas rhymes visually and the poem itself, short as it is, makes no pretence at a full rhyming pattern. Not far from where I was born everyone was called 'whacker' until it went out of fashion in the 70s. Ho hum.



I think it would sound alright.  There's assonance to it.
