Sometimes Y

He doesn't fit in with a, e, i, o, and u. He's more flexible, and exceptional, too. He's the other guy, the "sometimes" y. He's not quite sure who he wants to be. He's noncommittal, but very friendly. He's a consonant, and yet, a vowel, a monogrammic stich in a bath towel. He's unpredictable and often sly, who, on "Wheel Of Fortune," you do not buy. He swings wide his stride like a Mambo dancer, and beacons a question, challenging to answer.

Wow Juliet! Now this is an excellent example of creativity. I love how your use of letters showcases the differences in characters. That someone who does not fit in is normally looked at as an outsider but just like the 'Y' he can just be the perfect blend of consonants and vowels so to speak. Great write!
