C is for Careers - Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

C is for Careers - Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

Calling collect, as countless careers are careening these days.


Calendars and callings count.
Aptitudes raise all amount.
Rank recession pulls us back -
Each employee’s heart attack.
Economics, heckles raise;
Risk analysis betrays.
“Stop the bleeding!” Nation pays.

  1. Just stopping by to say "hi" from the A-Z Challenge list :)

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!


  2. I enjoyed this!
    Just the kind of word play that makes me smile, and I also smile that there are other people out there (lots of them) who think it's ok to be able to play with words like this, rather than look at it as geeky or posh!

  3. Ahhh even when disguised as poetry this reminds me of why I do what I do! Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Ubc has totally rawked my blogging inspiration! And it's spurred on by wonderful bloggers like you!

  4. What fun! I enjoyed this and will definitely be back for more!

  5. Excellently done as a poet myself I thought this great.

  6. That was a tough one! Go you for getting all that content in there.

  7. I've had my kids write acrostic puzzles but we've never put so much into it like your website suggests.

  8. Hi, Linda!! Wow, I love the acrostic, and I am into poetry too. This is exactly what the nature of careers is! Thanks for sharing, and I am passing this around!
