The Acrostic Poem

0 Conversations

I was challenged by B'Elana to write an acrostic poem for The Post, and I challenged her to take the current telegram game word.


Sometimes, when I'm bored, I might ask you,

'Can we play Scrabble for an hour or two?'
Rather than sit in mild disdain,
A game of words will rattle my brain,
Better than backgammon, easier than chess,
Becalming and played with the minimum stress,
Learning impossible two lettered words,
Emulating those lexicographical nerds.
