Poem: Housewife Rant

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Suggestion by Ruby Jean Richert

This poem is written with each word beginning with the same letter. According to my research it is known as a Tautogram.

This was a suggestion from Ruby Jean Richert.

She was issued this challenge 6 months ago by Ann Carr.

Here is Ruby's poem for this challenge, " Seaside Storm"

This is a tough challenge. My hat goes off to Ruby.

"Homewrecker" by Gretchen Wilson

Poem Summary

Housewife rant is a Tautogram poem about a housewife upset with a homewrecker. She wants this woman to be sent to hell tormented daily. She hopes heaven will give her marriage harmony. That her headstrong husband will be honest with her promising to honor their wedding vows.

Housewife Rant

Hasten hooker hell
hellacious homewrecker,
haunting ho hourly,
hot, high, harmful heat
hurting her hazel head
hurling humiliation.

Hoping heaven helps housewife
have harmony
healing heartache
hearing headstrong husband handout honesty
henceforth honoring heterosexual honeymoon.

Cheryl,

This was suggested by Ruby Richert. I found it extremely difficult.

I didn't mind the other challenge by Veronica McDonald which was for each word to begin with different letter.

I wrote 2 of them also.

Let me know if you do try it...I would love to read.

Thanks.
