Pinkie Says Goodnight - What Rhymes With Zebra? by Undead-Niklos Pinkie Says Goodnight - What Rhymes With Zebra? by Undead-Niklos
First | Previous | Next

I'm so bad at rhymes,
didn't you know?
I wrote this comic,
Using RhymeZone.

That wasn't even a rhyme,
"know" and "zone"?
I'll have to do better
So you don't have to groan.

Now whenever I sense a rhyme coming up, I'm gonna hear it in Zecora's voice. Yay.

Oh no you got me reading this in Zecora's voice! I am a dummy! ......again. Not matter what comic I am reading if it has Zecora in it I always read it in her voice.

Why Lady Z has to rhyme, I don't know; I guess it comes with watching the show. Niklos says, 'what rhymes with Zebra? I would have thought Zecora's name was actually Rheeba... DAMMIT, I DON'T KNOW HOW, BUT NOW SHE'S GOT ME DOIN' IT NOW!!!

Why throw such a fit?
It's not like she threw you in a pit.
Have to go now, glad to take a bow.
Be with my cat, and perhaps learn how to bat.
A bat, would be quite a pet,
though getting it to a vet
would prove quite a hassle,
maybe use a lasso.
Hail Luna, Princess of the Night
For together, we can join our might,
and provide quite a good fright.
Please judge my rhyme,
I spent a little time.

Joy and peace, my heart shall swell,
For a bed-time story told so well.

I'm falling asleep, eyes fluttering low,
Thank you so much for this Good-Night Show

That rhyme was kinda lame,
Not the right thing for a pink dame,
But that is alright,
Later she'll be able to rhyme all night.

Ah... not bad, but like many people, you've ignored metre. Zecora speaks in more than just rhymes, couplets also have a matching rhythm. For example, her first lines: "Beware, beware you pony folk; those leaves of blue are not a joke". Eight syllables with regular stress patterns (-/-/-/-/) each line.

:iconnervouscited:
Nervouscited Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014
Right. For example, the metre of this doesn't work at all:

>>>Although I can speak this way without skipping a beat,
>>>Speaking in rhymes is no small feat.

Both lines don't have the same number of syllables (that's very important), and the first line has too many unstressed syllables. And yet it's easily fixed:

>>>I can speak this way without skipping a beat,
>>>But speaking in rhymes is no small feat.

:iconnervouscited:

Here's another fix:

>>>This has the same rhythm as singing a song.
>>>If that's how it works, I can rhyme all day long!

whitespaceonly Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014
Yup. --/*-/--/--/ ; **/--/*-/*-/ works in the first instance because there are "silent syllables" - it's easy to insert pauses for the missing unstressed syllables. And -/--/--/--/ ; -/--/--/--/ in the second instance doesn't miss a single beat.

Nervouscited Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014
You're right -- I should have said "the same number of beats", not "the same number of syllables." You can get away with an extra unstressed syllable here and there, but three in a row breaks the rhythm.

People who appreciate good poetry. "Doing it like Zecora" involves more than just finding two words that rhyme and fitting them into the middle and end of a sentence.

I agree on the importance of the metre, but consider that Zecora herself doesn't really abide by the rules of good poetry in most occasions. I bring just an example, but there are aplenty:

"I'm afraid it is a mystery to me as well // but I may have something that, if combined with a spell... // I do not dare to use it myself, the results would be tragic. // It only responds to alicorn magic. // Princess Twilight, you can turn the potion from purple to white. // After a sip, you may see why the sky is day and night."

The first two lines might be considered sort of correct, but the following ones... they're just a mess. :P

Writing Zecora believably is a challenge that, thankfully, I've not had to face yet. You've done a good job, though.

  I can't stop wondering if Zecora can't help speak in rhymes, or if it's all voluntary.  Is it just her or her culture?
