The Acrostic Poem banner

The Acrostic Poem has been a long-standing challenge, mainly between B'Elana and PedanticBarSteward. However, we've decided to open up the idea to anyone who would like to take part, as a regular poetry challenge.

The word chosen each time is the Telegram Game's current word, so if you join in or subscribe to the telegram game you'll know as soon as it's announced. When you've completed your poem, submit it by posting to a new thread below, and we'll put the best of them together in the next issue.

Have fun!

This issue: WEDDINGS


With few qualms,
Expecting the best,
Denying all others.
Dress for their future
In marriage finery.
Nuptials on Saturday,
Greatest mistake ever –
See you in court.

Bride and groom on a wedding cake


Watching, waiting. The wringing of hands.
Expectations after the Banns.
Delays are the Bride's prerogative –
Don't shuffle, it looks negative!
In–laws of the future glare.
Now the Bride is standing there...
Gone are the nerves that plague most,
Say your speech and make the toast!
