Erma Bombeck was a Goddess! Aside from natural humor (as opposed to forced), I am very fond of Acrostic Poetry. One of my favorite things to attempt is Acrostic and Poetic definitions. If you haven't a clue what I'm trying to say, read some of my attempts.
I'm turning some of my poetry into songs, and others into recited works. Give them a listen and let me know what you think.
