Poetic Parable

There are two things I love about writing poems; the ability to cryptically express emotions and play with words. This poem has got more to do with the later. I am not exactly sure how this thought came across – I wanted to write a poem that only contained words starting with the same letter.

After preparing the narrative and theme, I looked for the best choice of this letter to get going with my first two lines. And after several iterations I knew the letter was ‘P’. And then began the journey in an attempt to do something that I hadn’t tried before. Of course, I had to sit with a dictionary, neither am I a native English speaker nor a vocabulary expert.


Philosophies protest, perennial predicaments,
perseverance permeates prevalent poignance,
pertinent poetry, pungent proverbials,
profoundly portray, peculiar potential.

Proud, paramount, powerful potentate,
passionately pursues, plenteous palaces,
pronouncing promises, platitudes pointless,
partial principles, perturbing prejudices.

Precluded plebeians, painfully penurious,
poisonous politics, policies pernicious,
punished principled, privileged prosperous,
persecutions prevail, peace preposterous.

Provoked protagonist’s persuasive progressions,
plunges polity, proclaims parity,
propriety permeates, prerogatives perish,
progressive populace produces prosperity.

Philosophies protest, perennial predicaments,
perseverance permeates prevalent poignance,
pertinent poetry, Pungent proverbials,
profoundly portray, peculiar potential.
