How to write a rhyme

Jesters always write in rhyme and so this challenge could be tough
Tough enough to make a jester shake
Shake my head and see if I’ve a poem on the way
Way beyond my usual sort of stuff
Stuff and nonsense says my mind this isn’t hard to do
Do your worst and see what you can make
Make your mind up you can play this silly sort of game
Game to occupy your mind enough
Enough you may find that it soon festers
Festers bad enough to turn bad poets into Jesters
