chose the theme

(An Acrostic)

Fixtures are not fixed at all!
I can unscrew one from the wall!
X marks the spot where I've pulled one out......
The one felt I could do without.
Untidy holes don't look too great:
Renovating is my pet hate.
Even so, I think I've proved
There's no fixture that can't be moved!


An Alphabet Book is an infantile thing
We read at our Mother's knee!
So an Alphabet Book that is based on Bones
Seems very odd to me!
'Anapsida' is a goodly word
And it certainly starts with 'A'.
'Bone', of course, is an easy one;
With 'B' I'm on my way.
'Cartilage'? Yes, that word will do....
A 'C' word was required.
Then 'Diapsida' (you all know that).
For 'D' I've been inspired!
'Ethmoid', now there's a crafty one;
Yes, 'E' was rather tough.
'Frontal' for 'F' was easy........
But I think I've done enough.
So I leave the choice to you, my friends....
Take the book down off the shelf
And read it, or, as an alternative,
Finish this rhyme yourself!

I especially loved your acrostic Fixture. Very clever ... and I know how hard they are to write! :)
