Alphabet Ode


Twenty-six characters, worthy of marriage.
Enlightened factors, ignorance embarrassed.

Managed to summarize the ways and means
of our loves while keeping us entertained.

Taken for granted, parents of languages,
ours, others. Legitimizes laments.

Essayist, becoming saviors with their appraisals
Bless us vestibules of verses

Still treasure, thus value, captivity's comfort
'Savages' sounding so eloquently triumph.
