Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
an Anarchist ain't an Antichrist


by HarambeForPresident

An angry autocratic asp
attacked an austere ape,
advancing asinine amass
at apertures agape.

Adjudicators all aboard
awarding art archaic;
anachronistic ass accords
are aft as Aramaic.

Writing Prompt
Write a poem of any type, at least eight lines long, where every word starts with the same letter!

And an ape ain't an anarchist. An explanation for three of the somewhat esoteric words used here:

"Amass" is generally used as a verb, but also has historical use as a noun, although it is considered outdated, befitting its use here.

"Aft": the rear part of a sailing vessel; in this context, it can be understood as "behind" or "backwards".

"Accords" (used here as a plural noun): an agreement or treaty. Not a reference to a Honda product.

The broken rhyme in the first line was a late single-letter edit to make this entry slightly less acerbic.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
