I put on my make up, (it helps make my day.)
right after I wake up, (while sun shines, make hay)
Then I make up my bed as I make up my mind
About making ends meet, I surely will find
A way to make good if I have to make do
by making the grade with a makeshift or two.
So be it!  I'll do it without making a scene,
though I might make some waves and I might make believe.
I'll make light of your protests that verses don't make it.
I'll just make the most of it, might even fake it.
To make an impression, or at least to make plain
that I'm making this row in order to gain
the Guiness Book prize with two dozen make phrases.
But I'll make you a deal: I'll quit making this rhyme
if you'll make your point with silver.  I'll stop on a dime!
There are ways to make love with a pen and some ink.
And I love this word make, so what do youthink?
Make allowance for me?, and make peace today?
Or I'll cry out "HELP, HELP!  Please don't take me away!"

Oh, I had to laugh at this, because I used to teach English to foreign students, and the hardest thing to teach are the simplest words like "make". This is a perfect example!
I loved your poem!

Echo,
It's sometimes a pain,
but you said it plain.
A little deployed
But I enjoyed.
