Ode To Un







Ursula was sipping her uncola,
Unintentionally twirling her hair.
Undecided about what to tell him,
Unusually wrapped up in despair.

Usher was being fitted for his uniform,
Unsung heroes were always fun to play.
Unitard was a bit imposing,
Underwear crept up on him all day.

Unapproachable she went to see him,
Unibrow smiled as she sneered.
Undeterred by her pleas for freedom,
Unsuspecting female thought he cared.

Usher's call to Ursula was unanswered,
Unfathomable images came to mind.
Until he could wait no longer,
Usher quickly started to unwind.

Underworld boss tied her to the train tracks,
Uncontrollable anguish fueled his rage.
Understudy swept Ursula off to safety,
United once again on center stage.

Unbeknownst to the playwright,
Unassuming boy with shoeshine kit emerged.
Ungrateful for stealing all his secrets,
Underdog's story was shut down without a word.

  6. Never would have guessed a coherent poem could be written starring words beginning with U! Did it take a long time to piece together?

  8. Poor Underdog. He deserves his story to be out there.

  9. You are an awesome poet. I was worried about adequately posting for U, since I couldn't think of any words that started with that letter. The end of the alphabet is hard!!! A bit worried about X!!!

    Kim - It probably takes me about the same amount of time; though I do everything in slow motion.

    Thanks Delores!

    Ruth - He needed to protect his secret identity.

    Morgan - I'm sure you'll do a great job! I still haven't decided what I'm doing yet, but many people use words that don't start with "X". Ex words are possibilities too. Thanks Morgan!

    Thank you Arleen!
