One Single Impression: Equals

Two. e q u a l s .a pair

Two pretty young maidens
With too much ale
Only one will prevail

Evenly divided
Quarrels aloof
Under the lights they're cool
All about turf
Into the ring they go
Showing their stuff


At the bell they do charge

Pray for souls please Mama
All is unfair
It stinks to high Heaven
Rigged this affaire

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same may go for poetry? (whatever, I enjoy painting with the words!)

Ha! Jim you did it ... you did an acrostic!

I use to love wrestling until I found out most of it was fake. I wondered about the boxing, because my son just love it.

This made me smile .. thank you.

This sounds like an exciting evening out! Well done Jim - and very clever; but no mud slinging?

Jim, in answer to your comment just now -- QCIslands: we have read the waters around that area are quite protected; we won’t be venturing out into open ocean -it is much like the Sunset Coast. Beginners apparently can kayak there - we will have a spray skirt on too.

Two acrostics in a row. Both equally pleasing in diffrent ways. (I read Amias' before coming here.)

Good work Jim on getting down your interpretation into an acrostic! Your wit is great! You will have to finish the story you started about your daughter in my comments section. Have a good one!

Such a fun poem, and I like a story. I find acrostics difficult but very much liked yours!
