The Cancelled Day Trip

A Poem With a Focus on whole-line Alliteration in the Order of ABAB CDCD EFEF GG,
also using those same letters for most of the words in each line,
as a tip of the hat to the poetry rhyme scheme of the Shakespearean sonnet
(while also being a Shakespearean sonnet).

The Cancelled Day Trip

Andromeda always admired Atlantis,
because of the blue-sanded beaches;
Alas, her avowed, adored friend, Amaranthus,
Was backward, belligerent, and bleakish:
She couldn’t come up with a canny enough cause
to decide her in definite deployment;
instead, she capriciously caressed her crude claws,
distressing her dire disappointment.
In ebullient, edifying, ecumenical eloquence,
her friend fought fiercely in favor –
with encouraging, effervescent, and enthusiastic elegance,
and familial and facultative flavor.
Gainsaid, she was, though, with god-awful gibbering,
and grotesque was her girlfriend’s long graceless gloating.
