Metamorphosis

This is my fourth alphabet ( abecedarian ) poem. I have included three words : xiphoid ( sword like ), yaager (strong ), and zoilist ( a rude critic ). When common people find utter confusion and anarchy everywhere, they too change their color in no time. Nobody can stop their collective will then.

Metamorphosis

Against bullshit canard
Deceit
ego fraud gimmick
Honest ilk jittery
Kind lenient manners
Now obsolete
Poor
Queasy restless suffocated
Turn
Ubiquitous vocal
wild xiphoid
Yaager
Zoilist

Thank you Ruby for your kind visit and comments. I'm enjoying myself writing abecederian poetry.

Another successful alphabet poem. Well done! The one I did, I found it hard to do. Bravo.

Thank you Bushra, Glad this poem attracted you.

You have to read every word, you can't skim over it - and that forces you to stop and think about what's being said. Good poem!

Harish Mamgain (author) from New Delhi , India on January 28, 2020:

Yes BRENDA, acrostic poetry is also an interesting kind. I' ll love to read them. Thank you my dear friend.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 28, 2020:

Awe, thank you.

I just read up on another one called acrostic poems.

I wrote one...it's not published here.

I might do that later.

Have fun...i look forward to reading more of your work.

BRENDA, this all idea of creating such funny poems sprouted from reading one your poems " Becoming clinically depressed, " and then I dabbled with such kind of alphabet poetry. You like it, it gives me immense pleasure. As for Tautogram, let's first read and then try how it comes into being. Love you reading and commenting. Thanks a bunch my friend for teaching me such an interesting speck of poetry.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 28, 2020:

I also tried the Alphabet poem. Two in this format and then I also tried another kind called Tautogram...where each word begins with the same letter. Like all words starting with letter T.

Lots of fun trying new challenges.

Great job.

Hi John ! Yes, alphabet poetry appealed really well to me. I don't know if I 'm able to write cohorently or not, but I do enjoy writing in such a funny and interesting style. Thanks a lot for appreciating it all.

Harish Mamgain (author) from New Delhi , India on January 28, 2020:

Yes Devika, a few lines can convey our message clearly and that too in an unique and funny way. I'am glad you liked it. Thank you.

Harish Mamgain (author) from New Delhi , India on January 28, 2020:

Eric, I love you reading and commenting. Thank you my friend.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on January 28, 2020:

It seems you have embraced this "alphabet" style poetry Harish. Well done in expressing your thoughts this way. Nice photos too.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on January 28, 2020:

Meaningful and well-expressed. You know it is simple to understand the few lines and you say it perfect

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on January 28, 2020:

I sure like this. I figure the fewer words to say things meaningful usually is the better.

Harish Mamgain (author) from New Delhi , India on January 28, 2020:

Yes Bill, it's really a great fun. I developed instant taste for this kind of poetry as we can express ideas and thoughts in a poetic funny way in few words." Glad it touched you. Thank you so much.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 28, 2020:

A fun and interesting style and read...well done, my friend!
