Acrostic, Schmagostic!!!

Tracy gave us a nice little prompt for week 165.

But, yeah.

I really stink at acrostic poems.

It was supposed to be in honor of Father's Day.



Here's what I came up with.

To read other acrostic tributes, just click here.

I’m trying to write an acrostic
It’s as hard as a haiku
My mind doesn’t process letter order
So I stink at this.   Sad but true.
I’m stuck on the letter H.
And the letters E and R.
I started strong but fizzled.
For.  Always.  Thinking. Isn’t getting too far.
I wanted to make it shorter
And use the letters D, A, D.
But that didn’t work well either.
I’m quite frustrated, yessiree.
So for Father’s Day my message
is not acrostic a bit…
Dear Dad.  You always like my sisters better than me.
Sorry to be such a SH@t!

I used to write acrostics for little gifts when people were moving away, using their names.

Not the most fun exercise...

Well done! {applause} This is a new idea to me. I will have to check it out, but may be too taxing on my brain cells. Thanks for posting!

I like the part about Dad liking your sister better than you even though it's not true.

You always bring smiles.
