This is a poem answering this contest prompt- you may not use any of the letters in these two words - HOCUS POCUS  I have now eliminated the 0's and the h - thank you Hank!

Eerily eager evil enigma elevated eleven renaming egg land. Meager minis liked their initial idea eggplant ready. Beefily blatantly weird in a diddly extra wiggly way. I was ready, reved, relieved and willing my elevated eight. black anklet twelve will enter evil eggland

Caren, you've got about four o's in there! This type of poem is so hard to write.

Thank you Hank for catching that. I checked it twice and never saw them. Back to the drawing board.
