Delightful Dancing Dignitaries

Delightful dancing dolphins dip, douse
their dorsal
Elegant elephant’s elongated ears ebb
Little lambs leaping lilies laughingly
Iconic impala ignites Irish improv
Graceful gazelle’s galloping gullies to
Hallelujah hippopotamus hula hoops
Trashing trouts twist to turn the tide to
twirl tango
Furry fennec fox fabulously floss
Utopian unicorn unties umbrellas
Lazy lizards lasso’s liscio lips

Daring dalmatian dog delivers dab
Aggressive alligator aids awki awki
Naughty nocturnal natterjacks nods
Cascading centipede circles can-can
Inactive icy ibisbills inch innaby
Nostril nurse-shark nocturnally
Glorious gorillas greet gliding and

Delicate dar dragonfly discos
Icky inchworm intentionally Israeli
Ginger giraffes grandiose go
Noticeable narwhal navigates
Indian-scissor-bill incisors indlamu
Talkative toco toucan twists and
taps tango
Astonishing African aardvark Atlanta
Rhinoceros rock and roll the red river
Isotopes isoptera inks Irish-step-dance
Elusive emus enjoys the electric-slide
Stylish seahorses slowly swing, strip and
square step

What I am seeing here are beautiful examples of alliteration ,however I am not finding anything cohesive about the lines


check out our chat room open to all 24/7

is meant to be part of the Sept. contest, find the box to check and make sure that it is entered properly. I do see the thread of continuity, but only because I see the title says something about dancing and most of the lines have a bit to do with dancing moves, but not all. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Hi Rickey, clever poem. My view is that so many alliterations make it more like a tongue twister. Still, if that is your intention, let it be.
