AFRICA 2 acrostic

                AFRICA 2

Adoration of sunlit bold high plains
Frozen herds torn from creation’s page
Rocking tribal fears—who’s got the reins?
Innocents are hurt while tempers rage
Call for voices high and voices strong
Africans say hide when things go wrong

    I love this acrostic Victoria. Not only is there wonderful meter and rhyme. But it has within each line of the acrostic a deep pensive message. Excellent work! In my opinion it is hard to deliver a strong, meaningful, thought provoking message through rhyme. But you have accomplished it well.
