No! It would spoil the rhyme scheme. Just substitute "more" for "less".
I'm going to try rhyming lists too. Now, what rhymes with "yoghourt"?

Nell - nothing to do with poetry, but don't you have grey squirrels in Fife? Our Devon ones would have trashed your bird-feeding arrangements in a minute! Or do you have a secret?

I've refused to strike out number ten, because that's even more subversive. However, I should have ticked number 29 as Done.

We have one grey squirrel who sometimes visits, Jenny, but I think he's scared off by the magpies. Who don't bother the small birds much except when there are eggs in their nests, and even then, most of them seem to do quite well. A whole family of bullfinches just now feeding on the path - and we've never had them before! And a new family of hedgehogs eating the birdseed after dark. Better than the cinema.

Well,
Nell,
I must confess
I hadn't ever come across
a rhyming to-do list!
If you persist
I think you may well
invent a new genre
which we should not fail
to learn!
