Electricity

ELECTRICITY!
(An Acrostic)

Energy that zips and flashes,
Likely to singe us all to ashes!
Enter here at your own risk!
Consider your exit may be brisk!
The white-hot heat will surge right through you!
Radiant heat will quite undo you!
If you tamper with this lock
Consider the electric shock!
Idiots may think they're smart;
Tampering with locks their chosen art.
You and I are much too clever.
Disobey this notice? Never!

HEALTH WARNING!

To be sung to the tune of 'That's Why the Lady is a Tramp'.

I get too hungry for dieting stuff!
Of things forbidden I can't get enough!
And deprivation can really be tough!
That's why I go ahead and eat!
My stomach rumbles when it is deprived!
It starts its purring when food has arrived.
That's why I'm healthy and why I've survived.
And why I go ahead and eat!
I love the smell of any old roast!
That is my boast.
I've grossed
The most!
I'm salivating from morning till night.
I'm in a frenzy to bite that first bite.
I lie and chew when I've turned down the light!
I think that food is hard to beat.
Be devils! Go ahead and eat!

Nicely done, Brenda! That's the very first acrostic ever done for M.M.P.P.

Thanks for joining in again! :)

I loved your acrostic, Brenda. And yes, I did sing along with your "Health Warning", getting really loud on, "That's why I go ahead and eat"!

Both great pieces that I thoroughly enjoyed reading...:)
