The Alphabet People

A girl I once knew from my youth
Believed a fairy flew in for her tooth.
Crept beside her small bed,
Dug the pillow from her head
Escaping the moment of truth.

Friends from a long time ago
Gifted me with an x-rated show.
Happenstance, it would seem,
Interrupted their scheme,
Jarring police barging in to and fro.

Kin from my dad's family
Lounged under a huge apple tree.
Moments later, a squall
Nearly pummeled them all,
Obliterating apples into puree.

Peers from my very first job
Questioned the thingamabob
Rooted off of the shelf,
Sold in a box by itself,
Transcending money from a colorful blob.

Upperclassmen at my college
Verify the professor's knowledge
With their whim and their wit
Xenial manners and s**t,
Yielding kudos in the houses they pledge.

Zany, yet trite, if you please,
Zillions of people like these
Zoom in and out,
Zealous and stout,
Zipping me like a flying trapeze.

Just for a challenging kick, I tried to incorporate the alphabet into the first letter of each line. A bit of nonsense, but great fun.
Thank you, as always, Teddy!

A bit of fun, I have added it to my to do list! I'm sure that most everyone could do one like this. One could even introduce themes to work at. Some of those lines... Lol. I like how you didn't make the lines too long and detailed, but introduced the idea in as few words as possible. Nice job! ~ Geez.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!

A theme would be a great bit of fun! I'm so glad you enjoyed this!
Thank you!

An enjoyable read dear Lavender and not without wit.l especially liked the closing lines. I always liked the z sound.
Keep your it up dear friend.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Of course this is all imaginary nonsense - but it was fun trying to make at least a little bit of sense,
Thank you, Rula!
