Acrostic Poem#18

Sadly today is another one of those days where

Atrocities continue worldwide

Thankfully there is but one day left in this week, I’m in

Urgent need of a lie down and escape from this form of poetry

Responding in part to what is happening on a global scale is not what I

Do very well

Acrostically at any rate

Yet there is so much more must be written about the horrors worldwide.

Acrostic Poem #17

Frantically looking for something positive to write about

Rather difficult listening to news bulletins

Irresponsible leaders threatening world peace

Day by day they instil fear

Armies stepping out displaying  their power to the world

Yearning for peace appears alien to them as another shot across the bows of their                                                               neighbours was performed earlier this Friday morning.

Acrostic Poem#16

TRAGIC, truly it is the

HURT being inflicted on the innocent worldwide by those hungry only for power

UPSETTING seeing this through averted eyes on TV screens and paper headlines

REGRETFULLY there is no sign of this hate abating

SADLY in our lifetime this pain and suffering is set to continue

DELIVERING peace seems alien to those in WHITE HOUSES and GOLDEN PALACES

AFTER all it would appear there is no obvious benefit to be gained pursuing PEACE

YELLOW STREAKS, not visible to the naked eye sadly prevalent in the HOUSES of the                                                                                                                   fashionable and privileged.

Acrostic Poem#15

Wonderful news to


Delighted we have reached the hump of the week

Nerves, what nerves

Everything is hunky dory here hope this finds you in a

Similar state of mind

Doing what needs to be done to keep the wolf from the door

Acrostically speaking, not caustically speaking

Yes of course I could have written a course poem that’s for another day this is for                                                                               Wednesday.

Acrostic Poem#11

Await no longer Autumn has arrived

Untouched (in this part of the world) by wind and rain

Tomorrow though may be a different day

Until then, enjoy the beauty of this day

Motivation comes with the blessings of this day

Negatives – leave them to one side positives like cream will rise to the top grab any opportunity with both hands.
