NaPoWriMo 2011 Poems & Prompt for April 23, 2011 23/30April 22, 2011
And on the 23rd day of NaPoWriMo they twisted up a previous prompt to make it even more challenging. But Hey, it’s the weekend, a little extra time to work on it…right?
Today’s prompt is a twist on the acrostic poem.
Write an Citsorca! (my word for it) That would be an Acrostic poem but spell the word with the LAST letter of the line instead of the first.
Write a double Acrostic… or Acrostic/Citsorca Spell the same word with first and last letters.
One other thing… it must be a name of a person.

BAD BOY POET
by Chris & Teresa Jarmick
Hard boiled Egg cracked on granite slaB
A Warm beer to melt defenses of new BeaU
North Las Palmas Avenue mail parK
Keen Robotic work and late night taboO
______________But how now brown coW
_________Stealing change, downing shotS
__Wailing blues loud; sees all does not looK
_______Can’t cook, swim, stay sober or skI
(Note.. left side…first four lines spell Hank; Charles Bukowski’s preferred nickname)
The most widely accepted birthday for William Shakespeare is April 23rd 1564 so we did this double acrostic in desperate homage.
William’s Birthday by Chris and Teresa Jarmick
Speaking sonnets, Polonius and King ClaudiuS
Hardly sat to drink when Hamlet began to laugH
Alas, this cast soon sets sail to ValhallA
Killing too the bawdy spirit of that fool YorricK
Every line deftly crafted to fill each scenE
Sensual maidens fulfilling midsummer night dreamS
Puck-ish interruptions, no grapes, lute or harP
Enter at your own risk this godless soulless place
Artistic flair fails to save thy fair OpheliA
Rabid anti-Semites cause Shylock to tremble in feaR
Every man and woman a player; all the world a stagE
Poetry is Everything
