Today’s task on NaPoWriMo.net is a spin on an acrostic poem. Use a quote and create a line for each word in the quote. I have picked a poignant quote from a favorite author of mine. Enjoy the irony!
Life sentence lip lock.
Is six-feet under safe from
a chill and a cough?
Disease segregates us, a
sexually organized apartheid
transmitted as hate and stigma,
and the cheap protective wear
invariably rips and fails,
fatal, blue-gray pale.
Life is a disease, sexually transmitted and invariably fatal.Neil Gaiman
