Food For Thought


Could I engage you in a metaphor?
Or create some acronyms for you?
Devise you anagrams by the score?
Interest you in some similes new?

I like to write in pretty pink pentangles
Polka-dotted points of purple perfection
Absurd-word concoctions of tongue-tangles
Or a wonderfully-woven verbal confection
