ABC Me ... (revised)

Again, its time to
Be like a
Character who
Does care that
Each letter must
Find itself joining another to
Go on this
In search of
Just the right words to
Kindle an alphabet
Lyrical run, but, instead
Marches more
Nearly into an
Oblivious obnoxious
Pursuit to pick up
Quickly the
So sublime (or stomach
Turning) to grow
Uglier than
Vericose veins or
Wilder than an
Xotic ... (oops, does it need the "e"?)
Yippety ...
Zippety-doo-daw day !

     reworked for Syed Amaan Ahmad's contest "ABC Format"
                        February 2010

    I know, Sue, if you are a perfectionist - which you seem to be - poetry can turn you off as well as on. No use going ape-s though. Whatever, you have my sympathy because I too suffer from wordjam. Got your mail. There are more spooks than you might think. Love, daver

    You're on a roll, Sue, and you sound so happy tonight! Good for you. Enjoyed the reference to "Vericose Veins." I can't write these ABCs, so hats off to you! Love, Carolyn
