See if you can figure this out.....

Midnight Snackę1999 Genea Parker

Almost
But not quite
Conflicting stories.
Did he?
Every night?
For how long?
God knows!
He sees all
In our hearts
Just as a parent
Keeps tabs.
Looking back,
Mother saw signs
No clues made sense
Other than one -
Peanut butter smears
Quietly led to him.
Rather than confess,
Sheepishly he lied -
"The dog did it."
Unbelievable!
"Very sly," she thought.
"Well young man,
X-cept for chores and school,
You're grounded...
Zero TV for one week."

lovely alphabet, very well done, my compliments to you...as for the hidden meaning, i have no clue, unless leaving the "X" out meant something x-rated?

one night at the airport...Childhood Memories...eight short weeks...Music to my Ears...your countenance...just watching tv...hoarse whispers...My One and Only...Tribute to M.J....Feel the need?...serving wench...a little girl...the mistress...stolen hours...Perfection...07-20-69...insomnia...devotion...Master...apart...plain...chat? ... but, enough of this shameless self-promotion ;)

Ok Genea, you went down the alphabet with the first letter in every line. Very clever, indeed.


By the way, if you're not busy spending your social security money, you're up on the community poem.

Yes, i was being silly and used the alphabet, but accidentally left out the letter X......until elvira noticed and told me....so i edited it back in.
