Deeply dripping dark dreams Engaged erotically every eve Five fondling fingers folded; Girded goalposts give – go greedy –
How hath human horoscopes Intertwined, itching, ignited Jab jocular jostle; jury & joie Kettle keeps a knowledgeable kill Lording lust loves liminal Mentions. Marathon. Mark marriage –
No napier, no nihilage Over octagonal obfuscation Purposefully placed; purport Queen’s quaff – questioning & quell.
Ransom rider’s rote ruling raw Satiated. Sunshine – superseded. The twilight – two tormenting Undertakers use of umpteem urns Vie – vile & vain. Virtual vigor vane –
Wise Wu wonders why wanton warrior wanders – Xon Xavier’s Xanadu; a xenophobe Yoke. Yearning, young, yelling – yes! Zeus’ zone. Zen. Zebediah Zealous.
After all, at apex approaching Be better, be born, be bonded breast! Catch cymbal; conch & catacomb crest.
