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.
This issue: PARTIES
Perhaps the real reason for my absence from this thread,
Amounts to nothing other than I've been quite off my head,
Reasons - there are many, excuses - there are none,
The things that I have left undone, the things that I have done,
In quiet desperation, I nearly lost my mind,
Each day a desp'rate struggle, with no peace that I could find,
So please forgive my absence, if you do - that would be kind.
