Love Poem: Usual Cliche

Usual Cliche

Usual cliche opening line 
A trite and superficial rhyme.. 
Now exposition maudlin- 
about pain or love or the weather. 
A clever offset bit of sing-song; 
Stuff like ding-dong or even King-Kong. 
And, as usual a line to make- 
this thing too long. Now finish strong- 
to alert the reader to the fact 
this poem has run out of time. 
In this space, of course, I'll tack 
A little "AbAb" end rhyme. 
And too be cute, say it turned out fine.
