Joseph Spence, Sr. Acrostic and Alliteration Poem
Jumping Jupiter, a jubilant sundae lover, and just a jewel.
Oppressed liberator, optimistically captivating; oratorical.
Saintly passionate, succulent salmon sampler; sweetheart.
Exquisitely enchanting, enchantingly amatorious; éclat.
Playful, painstakingly passionate, pajama wearer, patient.
Handsomely helpful handyman, harmonizer of happiness.
So sensationally super; Sagittarius son of John Spence.
Pleasantly personable, and matriarch Maud Spence's son.
Enabling, exquisite, eloquent, evolving and enterprising.
Naturally nice, no nonsense, and a nutritional nobleman.
Carrot consumer, constant comrade and cold-war veteran.
Heavenly enlightened, and just an elegant eggnog taster.
Sweet as syrup, shining armor off the shelf; savoir-faire.
Red-blooded poetry connoisseur and radioactively lovable!
