Poetry Styles of a Mad Poet II

Acrostic

A fun form that hones your skills in word building and meanings


INTOLERANCE

Ignorance is a prerequisite
Negligent thinking- without an inkling
Tantrums and intimidation are its ways of persuasion
Obstinate seasoning - clouds all reasoning
Lackluster imaginings lacking spontaneity
Erroneous predilection-only fuels ones suspicion
Ranting and raving that everyone needs saving
Arbitrary selection - without sincere connection
Notorious and inglorious - not meritorious
Consuming tenacity with no sense of veracity
Exaggerated piety - a show put on for society


BLIND FAITH


Bewitching - not enriching
Ludicrous and ponderous
Illogical- not infallible
Naïve- so easy to deceive
Devouring -not empowering

Fragile- so easy to break
Absolute conviction without restriction
Illusion , delusion, mass hysteria and confusion
Tenebrous epiphanies
Hollow dreams- misplaced memories



FAITH, HOPE, AND CHARITY


Fortitude with an attitude
Authenticity not complicity
Ideology not mythology
Trustworthy and reliable
Heartfelt and desirable

Homogenized doubt with clout
Obstacle but not impossible
Protection from dejection
Expectation with anticipation

A…
N…
D…

Ceremonial generosity
Humanism is its philosophy
Alms and outstretched palms
Resolution for those in need of absolution
Inspirational, not sensational
Tax deduction, a nice seduction
Yielding to magnanimity


I love this form it really hones on your word skills. I had these pieces along with a few others on this site in a poetry styles discussion board concerning poetry styles. These poems demanded to be back on these boards so here they are. They also are a part of my working epic so they are at least relevant in that sense.



till next time
