anagram poem

It Was Electrifying

The house was lost to fire
the chimney was all that was left
on the foundation lay ashes so fine
since it was arson it caused a rift
and the neighborhood needed a lift
so they watched the birds flit
from tree to tree then they'd flee
and soon everyone began to tire,
with hearts of love they each gave a gift
and those who had lost all, thought it nice
thankful they lived in such a great city.

Seeing all that happened was electrifying.

-Patricia Lawrence


The last word in each line I found in the word electrifying for an anagram poem, that tells a story.

Anagram Poem
The Anagram Poems are adopted from the word game puzzles found in several syndicated newspapers. Here is how you do it:
1. Choose a single-word title (longer words work better; aim for eleven letters).
2. Find as many words as you can within that title that contain four letters or more (one-, two-, and three-letter words are not allowed they're too easy).
3. Write a poem with the same number of lines as there are letters in the title. Each line must end with one of the words contained within the title word, and the poem should address the idea in the title. No two lines may end with the same word. You may not add -s or -ing or -ed or any other suffix or prefix.
