Twenty-Six Prevarications

Alternative axioms affirm
Barefaced bedrock’s backbones

Corruption contemptuously condemning contumely—
Degradations dance, descends…

Euphoric entities enable
False friendships forever

Guileful gargoyles gaze
Hauntingly harassing happiness

Inserting imposing inquisitions
Jocund joviality jarring—

Killing Kismets kilns—
Living Luxurious lies—

Multiplying mayhems map—
Neither-named nor numbered

Openly obliterating Obligation’s
Poignantly plotted plan—
Questioning quelled quinellas
Revealing rudimentary rapscallions
Saintly severed strands

Trauma’s tears taught
Unilaterally under ubiquities
Vexed visual vulgarities
Wisdom weeps writhingly

X-raying Xanthus xenophobes
Youthful Yahwistic yearning
Zephyrs zestfully zigzag

One pain
Two promises
Three Penances
Four Paragons
Five Paradigms
Six Parapets
Seven Partitions
Eight Pandemics
Nine Portents
Ten Poltergeists
Eleven Problems
Twelve Puzzles
Thirteen Prophesies
Fourteen Parasites
Fifteen Plebes
Sixteen Personalities
Seventeen Panoramas
Eighteen Placards
Nineteen Postulates
Twenty Princesses
Twenty-One Plans
Twenty-Two Plots
Twenty-Three Pollutions
Twenty-Four Privacies
Twenty-Five Pleas
Twenty-Six Prevarications

I'm a poet and aspiring screenwriter/songwriter with a passion for film, art, photography, philosophy and heavy metal. I love reading, mainly non-fiction, comic books, graphic novels, myth and reference. Family always comes first for me. I'm a proud father to two wonderful pups and two curious cats. I'm also a glutton for punishment aka the life of being a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.

  1. 26 lies. Amazing play of words with very evocative results.

    • Thanks, had been wanting to do a piece like this for a while, came across it going through some older poems I wrote for my other sight, where I found an alphabet poem, and I remembered how much I wanted to do a way-out there overuse of alliteration so I took it as a sign to go ahead and do it. The numbered part at the end wasn’t planned at all, it kind of came about as I was writing the alphabetic portion. Really glad you enjoyed this. Thanks

  2. I had to look for the meaning of prevarications. First time I encountered that word. I enjoyed most the numbers with all words starting with Ps. 🙂
