The Leprechaun Did It

by BethShelby

Acrostic Contest With Your Name Contest Winner 

 Everything that happened, I will tell you.

 Listen, because my tale will finish soon.

 It’s likely, I’ll be sleepy looking, too.

 Zombies attempt to steal my afternoon.

 After lunch, I’m computing when I can.

 Because I have some time and need to write.

 Each afternoon, my eyes are filled with sand.

`Tis likely caused by restless sleep at night.

 Have mercy, please. I am too tired to fight.


 Sometimes I fall asleep, and keys compress.

 Hundreds of letters run across my screen.

 Each time, I wonder who has caused this mess.

 Looks like a leprechaun’s been on the scene.

 Because I dozed, I have no proof he came.

 Yet, evidence confirms it just the same.

I used Elizabeth instead of Beth. I always get sleepy after lunch and fall asleep at the computer. This actually happened while writing this poem. I had four pages of the letter "t" (10 syllables per line. Rhyme ababcdcddd efefgg)
