A trio of Acrostic poems about crosswords.

"CROSSWORD"

Carefully structured
Rigorously designed
Obscurely phrased clues
Struggling to find
Synonyms
Words
Ordered
Rightways and
Down


------------------------------


"NINE LETTER WORD FOR PUZZLE"

New York Times’
Indelible
Nomenclature
Entertainment

Language
Exercises
Thoughtfully
Tackled
Enthusiastically and
Regularly

Words
Organized
Really
Diligently

Fifty thousand plus
Opt-in
Regularly

Play often
Upgrade your vocabulary
Zealously chase the
Zenith of
Lexicon
Expansion


------------------------------


"TWENTY DOWN EIGHTEEN ACROSS"

Tuesday’s tough but
Wednesday’s worse
Every day brings tougher challenges
Never a dull moment when you’re
Torturing yourself to find
Yet another word that fits

Deoxy___________ Acid”
Obama’s Attorney General”
Westworld network”
Navigator’s tool”

Every hint and clue
Is artfully or agonizingly articulated
Gamifying vocabulary growth that
Hitherto was a chore to learn
Take up your pen or pencil
Embark on a black and white brain teaser
Each finished word brings you
Nearer to victory

Atomic number 6”
Cougar genus”
Ray-Ban competitor”
Othello’s originator”
Style over _________”
Start’s opposite”
