Big Mouth Frog

decorative

In June, I plan to explore writing the Acrostic Poem. I’ve played with this form of poetry in the past. I don’t know how I came up with the idea. It must have been a word experiment for me back in the day when I was playing with poetry. The definition of an Acrostic Poem is the first letter of each line should spell out a word or phrase vertically. This word or phrase plays the role of a theme or message. Also, this message can appear in the middle or end of the poem. Back in the day, I didn’t know I was participating in a style of poetry. My coming across the Acrostic poem design became a clever attempt at wordplay. My  Acrostic style of poetry for today is called Big Mouth Frog.

Big Mouth Frog

Bilious , boisterous boy,

Igniting anger with your words.

Gregarious charmer out to annoy.

Mouth always open to exclaim

Once you begin you never end

Uncouth pretender without merit or fame

This is the reason I no longer pretend

Hesitant to play in your petty game

Frankly, my silence is my only tool against a

Repertoire of smug condescending words

Obnoxious obsequiousness aimed to fool,

Garbage in, garbage out the golden rule.
