Polyacrostic Palimpsest - Take Not All As Read - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Jingle verse enjoy. In reversed jest
our game is hid: no orchestra in song,
no signature, as no fit, link, strung strong
and taut traced are, for few see game addressed.
The care of each theme's wording to the test
here is pulled sharper. Read each line. Along
a web admired, placed true, is set among
new net mix. Read now, learn sense none guessed,
reach soul's sharing, free, the thread expressed.
Over all sweet sound ends work tongue long,
bestirring maybe. If proved the binding's wrong
it shall be read in fairness, thriftless guest!
Numb who'll stay? None smirk or sense contest,
Just a smile let joy glean from a jest.
