I find alliteration to be a useful poetic tool to use for comedy purposes. I like to use it to the point of ridiculousness… as in apt alliteration’s artful aid. The repetition for repetition’s sake in spite of meaning is in itself chuckle-worthy. But when alliteration can further the meaning of the writing itself also… I liberally laugh out loud.
L-Words (a Lousy L-Poem)
Lovely little lambs lament
Little lambs lament the loss of love
Lambs lament loudly and long
Lament the loss of lovely love
Lovely little lambs laugh loudly
Little Lambs laugh at life lived lovingly
Lambs laugh long and loudly
Laugh long and loudly in lieu of love
Life and love and laughter
The three L’s
Laugh lovely little lambs!
Okay, I know… I am the king of bad poetry. But perhaps the alliterative excess makes you laugh a little bit… at my poor poetry skills if nothing else.
Alliteration always awards awesomeness on authors… or not.
