Tongue Twister Poetry
(“A Tongue Twister poem is made up of lines/verses that are hard to say when read aloud by using similar consonant sounds in succession (use of alliteration). In other words, the poem ties your tongue into knots. This form does not require end or internal rhyme.”) (source)
Ssssssss…Say That Ten Times Faster!
Sometimes silly circumstances supervene
superb strategies of scheduled solace
security swings to sadness and
similar to smelly socks submerged in sewage,
a soul senses certain sorrow when
serenity is not settled in.
(Now try to say that ten times faster! This poem was so fun to write!)
