Fictional biography

Busta Rhymes. He rhymes all the time. His rhymes often chime. He thinks it would be a crime not to rhyme all the time. Some begrime his pastime which fills his lifetime. Others think his rhymes are sublime. Sometimes he rhymes at mealtimes. Ofttimes he rhymes at night-times. But sometimes his rhymes are mistimed. Like the time he rhymed at a [faith leader]. I’m – on a dime – saying; it wasn’t the time. If there is a prime time to rhyme, it’s probably not during wartime.
