My second poem for April Poetry Month is quite different from my first.
For 6 minutes, write lines of dialogue. The first letter of each new line must be the next letter in the alphabet, A to Z.
Here is my result. Keep in mind . . . I only had 6 minutes so, yeah, it’s a little crazy. And I didn’t get all the way through the alphabet the first go-round. I got as far as O. All the letters after that I completed in a subsequent 6-minute time allotment.
An elephant can't fit through there. Butt's too big. Can we push? Don't think that'll help. Elephant weighs eight tons. For F*&!'s sake. Get me a lever. How about an axe? In case of emergency, break ass? Joker, ha ha. Keep thinking. Look behind the mandrill's cage. Manny the Masturbator? Notice how he drools when you walk by? Oh no, he prefers blondes. Perhaps everyone does, even the elephant. Quite annoying, that is. Ridiculous, like this situation. Suppose we go around? Through the zebra's field. Unbelievable how you used the Z word before the end. Verily, I say onto you ... no worries. Why? X was the real problem, because there's another word for Z. Yes, this place is a real ... Zoo.
