Come Friends and Follow Me, Away We Go From A to Z

Updated on April 25, 2015

Why I wrote this poem:

I chose to write this poem – not only because it is poetry month - but because it is a challenge between me, myself and I due to a comment I received on another poem which I had written. This poem is dedicated to peachpurple – she knows who she is. I am sure that she recalls the poem.

This took me some thinking to write so it took me some time.

Train wreck

Source

The train wreck:

A Backend Caboose gets Dizzy

Engine in Front is Going Hastily

Inhabitant Jane Kelly Lizzie

Mailwoman Named the Only Passenger

Qualified Railroad Sent into a Tizzy

Upturned Volatile “Whale Belly” filled with Xylol

Yikes! This day was Zealot

      (grinning back) Thank you Deb. I have to look at that again because I have forgotten exactly what it is.

      (grinning) An alphabetical train wreck, indeed. You did well with it.

      That is why I try to come up with these Martie, for me as I write it and my readers too.

      The doctor was just office talk. Weight and BP were fine. I am fine.

      I may even get my SNAP renewed thanks to my brother stopping there after Dr.'s. On phone I just got busy signal.

      You have a nice Tuesday and say hi to the kids.

      Have a nice day. :-)

      I never expect people to answer straight away; we all have busy lives to lead! Hope the doc outcome was ok.

      Enjoy your Tuesday! We're off home to England - can't wait to see all the children.

      Thank you fans - I mean fan - you confused me. lol I am grateful for your comments Ann and happy that you really enjoyed it! At first I was not sure about writing that but I am happy that I did. :-)

      I would have answered earlier but I had a Dr. appt. and ended up going to other necessary spots while out.

      Have a nice afternoon/ evening.

      That was great fun; well done! Never thought of doing that and it worked well for you. The subject was interesting too and that's not easy when you have such constraints in which to write.

      I'm in awe!

      You are welcome but it was an accident, I did not intend that. I made up the first and middle names and used the last name just as a rhyme word. Thank you for your vote and comments.

      Have a nice day. :-)

      Hi there, Kevin!

      My attention was drawn to this hub thanks to Shyron E. Shenko, who let me know that you had included me in your 'train wreck.' LOL

      Thanks much for the mention. This was a hilarious way to include folks, and very creative. Voted up and funny!

      I will look again Shyron but you had me wondering last time. Unless it was somewhere else, I used 'Jane Kelly Lizzy' in it. All that I used was the last name to rhyme.

      Thanks for the votes and sharing again.

      I hope that you have a great night. :)

      To write a comment? I did and it disappeared.

      in essence, due to my archaic background, a 'symphony' expresses

      'anything characterized by a harmonious combination of elements'

    • Michael-Milec profile image

      Michael-Milec 2 years ago

      Hi Kevin.

      Thus my fingers have touched a hot spot in an attempt to compliment to your ' composition', coming from 'archaic form of live' where anything characterized by a harmonious combination of elements - is considered as a 'symphony.'

      I heard it while reading your poem, echoing again...

      Peace with us.

      Thank you Michael-Milec. I am not into symphonies but that is a different comment - with a little rhyme to it.

      You have a nice night. :-)

      I thought that I made up a name for the rhyme. Is it someone real?

      You have a beautiful day to.

      Hi Frank it is nice to talk to you again. I acknowledge your compliments and all I really wanted when I wrote this was to prove to myself that I could do it. Also for the comment I received on the other poem. (I wish that I could remember the poem and the commenter.)

      Thank you very much John. I hope that the person I wrote it for sees it. It was a nice comment I received on another poem about using all letters where I did not. I dared myself to write one where every word began with A-Z. (After all, I won a spelling bee with antidisenstablishmentarianism in7th grade.) So I figured I could do it. I appreciate your vote.

      Good work Kevin. I like the way you utilised the alphabet in order as the first letters in the words of the poem. A slightly different form of acrostic I guess. I hope the person it was written for likes it. Voted interesting.

      Great job with the alphabet. Awesome. I love to work my way through these types of poems, so clever and nicely done. Jamie
