experiments in alliteration

21.2.15

 

tigers triumph

deer don’t

 

***

 

girls get giggling

when women won’t

 

***

 

perfume provokes passion

scattering substance softly

from full flagrant flowers

I inhale intoxication

 

***

 

I intentionally imitate ideas

which warrant worship

 

***

 

often odorous oranges

make magnificent morsels

 

***

 

war wakes warriors

peace provokes poets

 

***

 

numbers name nonsense

like language

irrationality is inevitable

 

***

 

infinity is imaginary

since science sculpts

chaos continuously

 

***

 

tears tie tensions together

knowing knots

water washes well

 

***

 

sometimes summer soothes

autumn agitates

winter will weaken

spring startles

 

***

 

countries con communities:

they think that

nations need narcissists

 

***

 

awaiting afternoon’s appetite

sausages simmer

hissing heartily

such succulent sustenance

 

***

 

silly Socrates

always attacking answers

crafty critics concur

might makes meaning

 

***

 

when whites will

colour causes controversy

because black boys

say skin seems sense

no-one notices

 

***

 

consumption camps:

vocal vegetarians,

callous carnivores,

environmentalist eaters,

junk-food jelly-bellies,

fashionista foodies,

guzzling gourmands.

 

***

 

hair has honesty

but baldness beckons…

 

***

 

remembrance’s road:

age always arranges

men’s memories meanderingly

 

***

 

truth tells tales

wisdom wants

although answers always

curtail capture

 

***

 

maths men

always agree

numbers never

really reflect reality

 

***

 

dirty dishes

instantly invoke

excellent evasions

 

***

 

some sonnets suggest

marvellous music,

various voices

have harsh harmonies

 

***

 

fakers feign feelings

since seeming sensitivity

argues attraction and

is interesting

 

***

 

ants are argumentative and

property possessive,

waging wars,

culling colonies

 

***

 

youth yells

“taking trouble takes time –

speed seems superior!”

 

***

 

shouting seems subtle

when women wisely whisper

cruel comforts

 

***

 

lies lead lives

feeling favours falsity
