O is for Overreact – Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

O is for Overreact – Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

Oh, no. Look out! Who’s erupting and overreacting now? 


Oops! Volcano spews its smoke.

Violence is no jester’s joke.

Enemies deserve his rage;

Relatives cannot assuage.

Rationality has run.

Everything has come undone.

All at once, his visage shifts.

Colors dull, and conflict drifts.

Tell me: is it worth the rifts?

  1. As a firey redhead with an Irish temperment I know that "overreact" thing quite well. Continually look at that one (and am doing better than when I was a young one!)

  2. Very clever, Linda. Well done! I must read your other acrostic poems.

    Cattitude and Gratitude

  3. Cool, learn something new everyday.
