Zinging the zen-zone I was in A zany request zig-zagged my way. Princess Zinnia from the Zuider-Zee Required a zippy line or two To paint the zeitgeist of our times.
With the strength of a Zamboni- With the power of a Zeus- And an uncommon zeal I set out To zap the doubt that slowed me.
With the flair of a Florenz Ziegfeld And his zoftig choir of beauties, I morphed into a zealot Gamboling in the zephyrs That wafted in from Zurich and Zaire, Not to mention Zanzibar.
I felt like a Zacharias When my zealous work went bust. The writing turned into a zonk- The accolades were zilch. I felt like I’d been zippered up Like a zebra in a zoo.
I lost my zest for going on And slopped around in old Zoris, Listening to zydeco’s beat And feeling like a zit.
But then the Zodiac- My zinging-singing sign Came to my rescue And I was marching off to Zion.
I was one wowie-zowie-zucchini As I zipped across the pages And zoomed from one idea To an even zippier one.
So here, Sunprincess, is your verse I’ve used up every letter zee And gone from very bad to worse But of this challenge, I am free. ljm
After I posted "The H Words", Sun Princesschallenged me to do one using 'Z' words. Took me a while to do it, but I only had to resort to the dictionary once. And here it is. Please don't give me any more letter choices to work with. My brain is fried.
