ABC Poetry

Written by: Brenda Atry

Another anthology appears
Boldly boasting ballads.
Can't construct cinquain,
Ditto deconstructing didactic.

Easy efforts elevate essentially.
Fabulous frippery, fun, fauxmance.
Giving gifts ,gaiety, glory.
Hiding hyperbole ,hailing honesty.

I ignore idiosincricy.
Jubilant jeweled jots.
Krielle knowledge,
Luminates lovers learning.

Masters manage monoku.
No one notices nonsense.
Only ones own oratory,
Presents problems personally.

Quatern quixotically quizzes,
Rhymers,readers, royalaires.
State simple statements  softly.
They translate terse tense truthfully.

Unless unabridged,
Villanelles vex vagueries.
Written without wordiness,
Yes,you yearn, yearn yonder, zee's zero
