Here is a challenge
Write a poem where the first letters in each line are in alphabetical order.
1) A … … …
2) B … … …
3) C … … …
n) … … … and so on.
Write as many lines as you wish, but at least 4 lines.
Good luck! 🔠 👍

Let’s see how many we get.
Alphabetti Spaghetti is not my favourite food
Because of all the letters, they might spell something rude
Condensed milk, now I do love, and eat it from the tin
Dipping in a doughnut, I know that it’s a sin
Egg and chips with baked beans, and tomato sauce
Forever a favourite dinner, not everyday, of course
Grilled fish, especially on the bone, is something to avoid
Hate the thought of choking, it makes me quite annoyed
Ice cream of course, with chocolate sauce, is something to enjoy
Jelly too, with more ice cream, the dream of every boy
Kale, the stuff of smoothies, it makes me feel quite sick
Lattes, on the other hand, all frothy, creamy and thick
Munch, munch, munch, I love my food, that’s why I’m rather fat
No, please don’t say I need a diet, I really won’t like that
On the other hand, a heart attack, can really be quite fatal
Perhaps it’s time to trim my waist, it’s really rather ample
Quesadilla of course, the Mexican food is really rather spicy
Ridiculous as this may sound, it goes with chocolate brownie
Salmon, fried and juicy, simmering in the pan, with
Tarragon, the ideal herb, I’m really quite a fan
Unless you’re vegetarian, or you really don’t like meat,
Veal will not be on your plate, just dragged from mother’s teat
Watermelon, what a treat, especially in the summer
Xigua fruit is the African name, great if you’re a Boer
You know, I’m running out, of silly things to rhyme
Zander is last on my list, and now I’m out of time.
