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: VISION
Virtual reality bombards my tangled brain,
Images that make me feel as though I am insane,
Should I take an aspirin, or should I have a drink?
If only I could reason, if only I could think.
Oh if sleep were peaceful and not a fearsome fight,
Nightmares drive me crazy every single wretched night.
Vera said she had a dream
In which she saved the earth.
Shame she can't remember how,
It might have been of worth.
Oh well, it wasn't meant to be
Next time more luck, maybe.
