I thought it might be fun to try to incorporate as many of the words listed below, as you can, into either a poem or short story. You can change the word to fit in, i.e. motorcycle can be changed to motorcyclist or motorcycling, etc. I have not even tried to do this yet, so the rest of you may very well beat me at my own game. Have fun!
