Snow Ball Fight (an Acrostic)

Shape it round and compact
Not too hard my dear,
Or pain might cause a rumpus
When it hits one in the ear.

Best be prepared my friend
Attack and I’ll fight back,
Lob a snowball at me and I’ll
Land one on you – thwack!

Fix up your defences
I’m going to bombard you,
Gather your ammunition and
Hope to score a few,
Then - watch out for an I.O.U

reminds me of my own little ones this past winter
my youngest would always try and get me as she got off the bus

Pam - I won by default I believe, Jim cheated, he ducked!!!!

Ed - You'd better watch out, remember David and Goliath. My aim is generally very accurate, I usually get them into the left ear!!!!

What a wonderful acrostic poem Jackie! These aren't easy to do but you certainly did a real winner.....wish our snow here was "snowball" type but it's fine and powdery and not wet enough for a decent snowball fight!!! So now I have to know - did you or Jim "win" the fight???????

"Snow Ball Fight (Acrostic)" - I enjoy this acrostic! It is a composition if free verse that flows wonderfuly.

Thank You, Sublime Poet, for being a bricklayer in the building of the tower of Grace and wonders!

We know LYING is wrong BUT—lying happens sometimes when it comes to what we will or will not reveal to other people—-or our own denial about who we really are…… ..
