Tag: acrostic poem


My daily appointment with what passes for a face
is a chance to tell myself some serious home truths
regarding my abject failure to measure up to expectations -
responding to this utterly unfair and unjustified ticking-off
only seems to make things a whole lot worse so I very
rarely object but nod and slink away when I'm not looking.

Jackpot Rollover

Very disappointing, don't you think, today's word?
One must use it, though. No backsliding permitted!
Unpromising starters can offer a stimulating challenge to the acrostician.
Could VOUCHER perhaps turn out to be the portal to the perfect poem?
Having come this far, however, I'm beginning to doubt it.
Ending the poem well is looking increasingly unlikely.
Redeem this failed effort for a more successful outcome next time around.

Every Which Way But Lucid

All possibilities are being considered.
Some possibilities are more probable than others.
Possibilities considered improbable will be deemed impossible.
Expect changes to this policy in the light of unexpected developments.
Circumstances alter cases and we take no responsibility for any decisions.
There is, however, a continued commitment to promising the moon on a stick.
