T is dad's cruel Teaching Ennis kept heeding
U is Upstairs, to the del Mar apartment.
V is Jack's Value to the Combine Department

Rule Review:

Write the rhyme in present tense ("A is ...")

This is an "ABCdarium" constructed in ominous/portentious/even licentious rhymed couplets.  The letters X and Z are particularly challenging in this format and are allowed a "cheat."  The cheated word must contain the letter, the sound of the letter must be a major feature in how the word is pronounced, and it must be capitalized within the word.  ("X is eXchange...")

"Half-rhymes" are acceptable ( fence / sent)

Key words use in other cycles can be used again, but the couplet made with it must be different.

To keep us better on track note the following:

A rhymes with B
C rhymes with D
E rhymes with F
G rhymes with H
I rhymes with J
K rhymes with L
M rhymes with N
O rhymes with P
Q rhymes with R
S rhymes with T
U rhymes with V
W rhymes with X
Y rhymes with Z

26 letter of the alphabet = 13 pairs of couplets
