A-crostic is a poem form
C-ontaining a device
R-hyming's not essential, no it
O-only makes it nice
S-ometimes it is difficult
T-o write acrostic muse
I-t took a lot of patience
C-omposing this for youse

Thank you, Professor Toe
On teaching me this trick.
Everytime I think to show
Rhyming is my schtick,
A guy who's in the know,
Gets me to stretch a bit,
To write a little more
Harder material, to wit,
Expand my style and explore
So I can more cleanly enscript
Caring words as I implore
A lot more care in what I've writ.
Life demands that we ensure
A thanks to those we've met.
With grateful heart, so pure
And with not one regret,
Great big hugs to my mentor:

Toerag the scalawag


yippee - my first acrostic!

Wildly running like a fool,
Hopping on the first barstool
Acting like I'm Mister Cool

The Hooter girls walk in parade
Abundant attributes displayed
Perhaps by way of surgeon's blade (?)

And I, since I'm a crafty rube,
Intently stare up at the tube
Right at home with all the boobs!

(Referring, of course, to Toerag and Long John)

Balladeer: LJA and Toerag. Of course. They're certainly the most interesting... and original! *G*

LOL - great follow on - I loved it. And what a pair (or two or three) I saw, too. However, my lil Lorelei still has the best rack I've ever seen.
