Reading Trinity’s blog yesterday,
something well worth doing,
I discovered she is taking part in something called the A through Z challenge.
And is up to X
Which got me thinking.
Always a dangerous situation.
(No, that is not D)
And since I have a (very) few minutes to write this morning
(no, that was not V)
I thought I would hit a few keys
(no, that was not M)
and see what comes out.
So here are the few tiny wisps of alphabetic information
sliding joyfully and synaptically
through my mind at the moment:
(maybe that was W)
A is for Alliteration:
All aardvarks advance adventurously Atlantic-wards.
(Except that alliteration is only for consonants. How awkward.)
belligerently, the badgers block their path.
Centipedes drum their legs in concern.
Daringly, the aardvarks advance.
Denying their definition.
alliterative existence endangered,
Ta ru ta ru
(neither t nor r)
Forward-facing frontline fish fan fins ferociously.
Galloping griping gnus
gather gourmet pomegranates.
(the h-inserting among the English non-alliteratives)
hurriedly hand round Harrow applications.
innumerable itinerant iguana
identify with the cause,
Lemurs and Linns lovingly letter-
while marsupials munch mapples
(m-inserting, since from down under)
and make maps
for naked mole-rats
busy (k)nitting nighties
to sooth the sensibilities of non-nudist neighbors
like the overly optimistic otters
or over-feathered ostriches,
who know that
perpetual perambulation persuades.
Right, wrote the wrought-up
Right we have, right we are.
And right we turn,
squeaked the sentient but somnambulant
Tuer mouse (a German dormouse)
Trying to get a word in
in the terrifying alliterating tumult.
Useful, said the uakari monkey,
red in the face from the exertion of alliterating.
added the vole,
who normally had his abode in the home of the verger
of Westminster cathedral.
when he decided to join
the assonance-accepting alliterators
of the zoo-zone.
