NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

23. Write a poem where the last word of the first line begins with the first letter of your name, and the last word of the second line begins with the second letter of your name until you have spelled out your first and/or your last name.
Love a challenge so we are doing our whole name, First, middle and last... Just know that I prefer not to be called by my first name... so please do not use it when addressing me... Hope you all understand and thank you !


Most people love their first name, Justifiably,
I however, do not and though it is Unusual
I'd rather be tied to a truck and Drug
than be called Judy, call me Yoo-hoo

Or you can just call me Lynne
that will help stop my Yattering
on about how I hate my Name
you needn't know all the Nakedness
that comes with my long Explanation

JL is my name, to me, it fits me Dandy
and though my Momma would Object
she loves the name she gave her Daughter
changing my name, she couldn't Grasp
but she has come around, Eventually

Think this sounds kind of more like a rant than a poem...LOL
