Top 5 Abc Poem Examples

Why the confusion PS?

I've read the definitions for an ABC poem.

Word by word,

line by line ...

tear by tears of your site's examples (what a waste).

You think I'm off in left field on this, go see for yourself.

Further,

I googled the definition and read other sites examples.

Further, I read the contest results of Sara Kendrick's ABC contest.

I can easily see a picture that is consistent with the definition-ABC.

(is there a second definition hidden under a rock?)

Am I dumb? Mistaken? Hidden under that rock? Tell me are those featured poems ABC poems?

If the answer is no ....

Why? Why the confusion?

Why lead readers on with misleading examples?

Why Image result for pictures of sheepdon't others speak up.

Question.

Wouldn't an unbiased person think that this site loses crediability if they see improper examples of poetry forms? I would think so. The sad think here is that the aforementioned improper poetry forms aren't limited to ABC poems. Can someone tell me are my eyes deceiving me-the best poetry site in the world leading readers on a wild goose chase.
