    Challenge.4 :: ABC's




    In a poem of 26 lines...
    use the letters a-z (in alphabetical order)
    as a the first letter of each line of your piece.
    If you want to get really crafty, try z-a!

    Lines may be as long or as short as you wish,
    but you may not have more than 26.

    In addition, you may get creative with your letters
    (unless of course you can use zebra and xerox
    in your poem.)



    I'll start it off so you can see what i mean.

    like
    masochistic
    nuances
    of
    pity
    quite
    realistically
    shrouding
    the
    ugliness
    vying
    with
    x-tacy.

    Random Imagination

    Zebra hide traded for Zar
    Yearning pochers multiply yearly
    Xylaphones of ivory pass through customs x-rays
    Wildlife numbers plummet, situations worrying
    Velvet discred for fur, a biological vandell
    Untill we all understand
    Travisties commited for fashion trends
    Sell souls of man and beast to slavery

    Righteous activists become rebels
    Quietly taking issues with the queen
    Pausing only to consider her position
    Open to anarcy, royalty overtrown
    New thaughts of peace needed
    Marking the dawn of the matriarch
    Live issues disscused in lounges
    Kids in Africa still become killers

    Justified crimes become jaded
    Intolerance leads to incarseration
    Hoping for heven or hell
    Gently released into the arms of god
    Forgiving transgressions against friend and foe
    Every human fears death eternal
    Drowning in depression
    Calling for help like a child

    But confused thaughts bring mental bankruptcy
    Amen
    Words are always getting conventionalized to some secondary meaning.

    Zygote Attempt

    Zealous youngsters, xanadu waits verily under
    your xanthe waves veil ululating tongue.
    Xochitl weaves vast upon the stretched roof
    where virtue usurps thrones, silent, ready,
    vacating usual tracts seen rarely quiet, poised
    utterly taut. Swallows rush quick past open
    tunnels. Sudden roosts quit, poured out now—
    such rivers quilted pastel on new moonlight.
    Rove quick paths over nightly moorings, low
    quakes pound our nooses: men licked, killed,
    plastered once. Now, mercy loves kids just in
    off nasty maritime lopes, kids jarred inside heavy
    nooks made lastingly. Kick junk ire here, go find
    more love— kisses jaded. It has girls feeling
    less kindred. Jokes irk heavy gasps for each dour
    kernel jolted into hunky gut. Firey, earthen dust,
    jagged isles holding good food, eat dirt cause
    I have given for each dire canister. Before all
    hands go. Finally, enough dough can bloom
    gently, first, engaged: drastically calm-boned
    for every day caught behind ascension.
    Eternally daft. Captured beneath anxious,
    doomsday caution— blasted Achilles.
    Careful…Best atoms
    become
    Adam.
    "Dying Is An Art"
    -Sylvia Plath

    Not really. Save the song
    the sickle sings, we expire the same: lights out.

    zealots yelling,
    yearning with x-asperation
    xeroxing love, whining,
    winning, warning, viciously,
    victoriously, uniting
    unionizing together
    toppling standards
    stretching wool over retinas
    retaining lies quietly
    questioningly pensive
    poking their old,
    over sized noses
    noxiously into my
    merry little
    life kindling
    kind, juxtaposed
    jaunted, ignited,
    irritating, hot
    hatred! Go
    get far
    from everyone
    else dastardly
    devouring courage
    casually bemoaning
    bastards allowing
    assassinations of zealots
    "A Poem can curve
    Like the bell of a tulip
    Or a pistol grip"

    Alpha Beta

    Aspiring to
    Be a better version of me
    Confused at the way things never are what they appear to be
    Dismal
    Enigma
    Forgetfully thinking nothingness abundantly
    Grams of weed the only thing that sets me free
    Hope floats but here I sink, lost at sea
    I am
    Juxtaposed between hellish fiends and divinity
    Knowing that I know not
    Limits are like skateboards, I push them with ease
    Morbid thoughts the consequence of
    Numbing yourself with substances
    Once the fun begins you'd rather die than ever quit
    Persistence the only ally in a world of enemies
    Quiet contemplation has got me thinkin that
    Reality is just a fucked up dream
    Something's got to give before I
    Tear at the seams, overwhelmed by the
    Ubiquitous impostors posing as kings
    Vainglorious bastards
    Whimsically tugging emotional strings
    Xenophobic tendencies start to invade
    Yesterday's gone, but one thing will remain
    Zetetic me

    Re: Challenge.4 :: ABC's

    zany thoughts rumble on in my head
    yearning for peace of mind, that ill never have
    X-treme conditions always leave me unbalanced
    Widening the gap between myself and society
    Vivaciousness now replaced by lack of courageousness
    Understandable weakness spawned by a life of struggle
    'Time for a change' i always say
    Schyzophenic split personas fill my desire for variety
    Reoccuring in cycles, i can shake neither my good or bad side
    Quick to judge are others, first impressions are everything
    Persistant are the frightened looks and the whispers
    Often times i hear them, always behind my back
    Notorious gossipers cant leave the hot topic of me alone
    Most men would fall under such conditions...when
    Love dissapears replaced by languish and struggle
    Killing dead the spark my fresh mind held as a child
    Jurisprudence gave ruling that i was not fit to exist
    In society, for i was but a menace and a danger
    Hear my cry, roll of thunder 'are you there?'
    'God almighty, help me' but you probably wont
    Freedom can only lie within myself, or so ive found
    Exactly the opposite of what some people will tell me
    Degrading me and saying i need help from others
    Can i not be myself and live without you fuckers?
    Basically you think of me as an
    Animal, so id rather be alone and atleast still be a human
