Qwerty or ABC

Twenty six letters of English font
In rhyme and song is how one’s taught

Once the letters securely fit
We pull each out and start to mix

How does a B find an L
Why does W merge with R so well

And silent partners Is and As
Make boats float and chairs cry “staid”

Stairs carry me up and down
And smiles quickly turn to frowns

Just because I change the character
More often might I be a caricature

An exaggeration of what I fancy
In hopes to be what another sees?

Chaos out of order cries
World order is the loudest lie

Q with U won’t make a queen
A knight will never be a king

Perhaps a lord but never LORD
Caps off to lower case his word

Beware of letters all askew
One day in time they will spell you

A fun poem while musing on the order of letters and the making of words.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
