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!
