I thought it would be a good challenge to do an acrostical poem on the name of a pip member. As well as giving a critique of the poem the others could see if they could guess who it was

Brad & Littlewingster,

How about an acrostic on both sides of the poem, with one side as the name and the other side a quality, like this:


P  ...  Q
O  ...  U
E  ...  E
T  ...  E
E  ...  N
S  ...  L
S  ...  Y


Just a little extra challenge on the side

Brad? I didn't know it was supposed to be for someone at pip.

I'll have to try that once again.

Sue? sheesh and blush, sure hope you weren't up all night trying to figure out who that was for. ouch. (love me anyway?)

And ess, I quit doing those because I don't know how to post them so that they read uniformly down the right side, but? chuckle, I DID, do a double lined acrostic, and tried to intertwine the verses so that it worked as a normal read with the two line acrostic "story" sorta encoded in:

shaking my head here.

Haven't even had my first cup of coffee and you guys are workin' me.

Problem solved.

Sue, my acrostic is now welcoming our newest member,

"onceuponatimeshesighed"



I'm tired.

Second cup of coffee, and anybody else want one?
