This Poem Is Brought to You By the Letter S

Samantha’s Stratagem

just another Plinky Prompt (for August 1st–write a poem with each word beginning with the letter ‘s’)

“Surely she should save some,”
Sam suggested secretively;
slighty surreptitiously.
So slick she spun such subterfuge
seeking satisfaction.

She’d slink silently, stand-offishly;

Should Sasha spill some
snacks she’d strike speedily,
spinning slightly
sneaking somewhere safe;

spoiling supper
scarfing sweets seductively.

Sasha smiled, sweet student,
shared several sugary Snapperdoodles
soon spending sundry
snacks seldom savoured so spiritedly;

starkly subsiding.

Silly Samantha:
some say she shouted selfishly,
some say she slithered someplace sniffling;

such strategies seldom satisfy.

  3. Super stunning! Love all the S words. S is my favorite. My last name is S. My dog Salem and daughter Sydney. S S S! I love it, that’s why I am keeping my last name. 🙂

    Really great job, I am impressed!

    • Thanks, Angelia. It is a great letter to aliterate–imagine a whole poem with the letter ‘z!’
