NaPoWriMo Day 10

All the way to Z
Better stop before brain is

NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for today’s prompt (optional, as always): Today I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Okay three years ago in this very room, I wrote an abecedarian. It took several hours and I swore never again. To prevent coprolalia I stuck to ABC. I almost claimed clinomania to avoid the prompt completely. But I finally was able to avoid catalectic failure with this handy webpage. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to drink some water to make sure my brain isn’t smoldering.

Birthday Abecedarian
