Entry for Lady Jasmines Acrostics Nov 02. Awarded 1st place


Wistfully dreaming of a lottery win
Exotic holidays for kith and kin,
Able to buy your 'pie in the sky'
Leaving poverty behind, you and I.
To those little balls with numbers on
Here's hoping this week I can say…..I'VE WON !!


Wielding high the sword of death
Extra honed, it's blade,
Above her head it waited long
Playing to the crowds' bated breath.
Only the Lady, knowing when it would be,
Nodded her head and became history.


Tortured mind of the psychopath
Engineering plans of destruction.
Rendering fearful all those who
Resist him and stand for freedom,
Openly denouncing his evil
Rejecting his megalomania.
