Poetry by Jeff Green


Alphabetical nonsense

Unsung urchins uttered ughs
Thought to torment twenty thugs
Soon said something so sublime
Running riot reading rhyme
Queen quotes Quakers queer quidnunc
Purple preachers pimping punk
Old ox Oswald opened out
Nevilles nursers netted nowt
Mandy moaned my mumbling made
Lenny lose Lol’s lemonade!

Author notes

I have no excuses save a series of contests asking to use 7 letters words starting with each letter of the alphabet, one letter a contest and no word to be used more than once, I wrote a poem that didn’t qualify then went nuts
