*Anarchy*

ROUND 6 RUNS FROM 12:01 am September 1st, 2018 TO 11:59 pm September 30th, 2018. WDC TIME

To explain this contest simply, it is a contest based on traditional poetry forms, with a twist.

It will be run monthly, and will be based on a prompt given by me. I will present a traditional poetry form to be followed, plus a twist relating to that form.


A few examples:

*Target*Write a Haiku, but reverse the syllable structure. Instead of 5/7/5, it must be written 7/5/7.

*Target*Write a Sonnet, but cut the syllable count per line in half. Instead of 10 syllables per line you can only have 5.

*Target*Write a quatrain, but make the first word of each line follow the rhyme structure, not the last.

*Target*Or anything else my twisted mind can come up with.


*Anarchy*


ROUND 6 PROMPT
Write a poem that rhymes.


THE TWIST
Each line must start with a different letter of the alphabet consecutively.

Good luck. I look forward to reading your entries.
