A Two-Part Post

So, today, I pocket-posted a status to facebook.  Needless to say, it drew some well-deserved ridicule.  One comment suggested that budget cuts were limiting me to the use of only half of the alphabet.

Well, there’s only one way for a writer to respond to such a comment:

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Here’s what I’m going to do.

I’m going to write a fibonacci poem out to 21 sylables.  The first six lines will be made up of the following letters:

CHALENGPTDXRV

The 21 sylable line will draw from the complete alphabet.

The last six lines will only use the remaining letters:

QSMOIUBJKVWFZ

Those are the rules I’m imposing on myself.  Please don’t look for great poetry in the next post, or coherence for that matter.  And please, feel free to do better than me in the comment section.
