The alliterative poet presumes
to place his Pís and Qís
precisely where planned to prove a point.
That is, his pieces provide punctuation
timed to taut tempo of tongue and teeth
as he attempts not to sound staccato,
strident, sibilant, nor strange,
while providing useful, metrical rhyme,
(Ignore the gerund; it canít be helped)
Whether strictly formed or seriously free.
(Adverbs will creep in uninvited,
if not severely monitored.
Refer to previous note.)
So, all thatís asked is to please, forgive.
Show some kindness to the alliterative poet.
His penchant for plosives, sheer, black diphthongs,
is more of a plea for help, than a plague.
