Life Without the Letter S

Alphabetic cruelty!

by kiwisteveh

How the lack of one key letter
Doth creative output fetter!
Whoever thought that there could be
A giant gulf 'tween 'R' and 'T'?
A rule that cruel I can't believe;
How to proceed I can't conceive.
My poetry will never thrive
With an alphabet of twenty-five!

As expected, it was not easy to write without one of the most common letters. I chose to focus the poem on the stern conditions of the contest.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
