RECAP:

A is for August when the first snow came down
B is Boneless blue, in which you could drown
C is LaShawn's Chatter, which fell on deaf ears.
D is the Delmar Ranch, which fell into arrears.
E is the Elk that got made into jerky
F is for Faye Newsome who was anything but perky.
H is for Jack's Harmonica, flattened and dented.
I is Inconsolable, shattered by grief.
J is July 4 - You wanna lose half your teeth?
K is for Knowing somebody name a Jack.
L is Ennis' Luggage - a brown paper sack.
M is Mouth - shut your slop-bucket mouth round Ennis' girls.
N is for Nighttime, when the passion unfurls.
O is Off, as in "a gun goin."
P is Pretend place where whiskey was flowin'.
Q is the Quaint dress style Alma held on to
R is the Receipt of a postcard long overdue.
S is for Spread-eagled Ennis, all spent
T is that infamous, well-beloved Tent
U is for Upheavals at thanksgiving dinners
V is for "Ver' good," spoken by a soon-to-be sinner
W is Wyoming, mountains and high skies
X is for Xanthic tresses, thanks to hair dye.
Y is for "You didn't go up there to fish"
Z is for jeans that you long to unzip


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
