Crest (an acrostic poem)

Climbing to the top of the wave

Releasing your fears and jumping to your feet

Everything seems so much clearer up here, almost surreal

Suddenly unsure, you begin your descent down

Then it’s time to paddle out to look for the next wave

Yelling (an acrostic poem)

You just can’t make this stuff up

Every day there are more and more idiots out there

Living idiotic lives just to piss me off

Leaving me wanting to scream

I realize this may seem offensive

Now that I utter these words aloud

Give me a break, I know I am an idiot for someone else, so there!

Tape (an acrostic poem)

To mend that which was ripped apart

A bonding agent stronger than superglue would be needed

People and relationships were sometimes just too broken to just slap together

Even with bubble wrap, bailing twine, and wire

Gadgets (an acrostic poem)

Getting ahead these days screams for electronics

Andrew felt like he was a cyborg because of it

Doing common things without using his phone, watch, tablet

Gave him the creeps.  It was like being in the middle-ages

Electrons flowed through his veins, he was sure of it

Then the worst case happened, he was on a trip and forgot his chargers

So when his friends found Andrew in a comatose state, they mourned his passing

Knot (an acrostic poem)

Kissing his new bride made Gene so happy

Now all they had to do was walk down the aisle

Offering his arm, he escorted his wife down the stairs

Too bad his shoelaces had come undone.  He should have tied more than one…

Splash (an acrostic poem)

Slipping under the waves

Pushing her to the bottom

Lisa felt like she found something special

A new world opened up in front of her

Swimming with the sharks she felt no fear

Her smile revealed her sharpened teeth

Grading (an acrostic poem)

Giving points out like Halloween candy

Reaching into my bag, I pull out a number

And I drop it onto their paper

Defining their mental capture of my material

It is an inexact science for sure

Now when they get that judged paper back

Going to wonder if they think it’s a trick or a treat
