Many examples of acrostic poems can be found scattered around the web (where the first letter of each line spells out a word when read from top to bottom), but I have found very few examples of acrostic Limericks.
I now look out for prompts that contain five letters (or ten, fifteen or… let’s not get ahead of ourselves, eh?). I may add the odd one of my own, too.
Let me know what you think.
Quite what I should write is unclear
Unless you can give me a steer
Each tentative theme
Undoes my esteem
Excusing my yearning for beer.
Pansies, or so I am told,
Live in places you may think too cold.
Always in bloom,
No time for gloom,
Their beauty’s a thing to behold.
Anyone care to join in?
