Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – “School Days, School Days” (posted by Lillian)
“So what is the prompt? I’d like you to write what I call an ALPHABET SESTET! The sestet part is easy: 1 poem of six lines. But what do I mean by an “alphabet” sestet? Easy again. Choose a 6 letter sequence in the alphabet, for example A-B-C-D-E-F or perhaps J-K-L-M-N-O. Those letters, in that sequence, are the first letters of the first words in each corresponding line — as in line 1 starts with a word that begins with J; line 2 starts with a word that begins with K; line 3 with L; line 4 with M; line 5 with N; line 6 with O. This is not an acrostic!”
United, we might stand again
victorious as a human race
where facts are not in dispute.
Xenophobia may decrease,
yellow journalism a thing of the past.
Zealots would fall. We would take a higher route.
