Africa Quadruple Acoustic

A frica’s F iery, R ational I nsanity C reates A fricA!
Fantabulous, a virgin whore, humanity’s better hal F,
Ravenously wielding mystically mystifying powe R,
Inseminating the aging world with her age-old geni I,
Chanting defiant dirges of dreary dearth in dire magi C,
A frica, F reakish, R iveting, I mmortal, C ures A fric A!


  1. An acrostic is a spelling poem, Usually the first (or sometimes the last) letter of each line combine to form a word. Here is an odd anti-acrostic ("21") by Gertrude Stein -- it looks like an acrostic but actually isn't.

    I love my love with a v
    Because it is like that
    I love my love with a b
    Because I am beside that
    A king.
    I love my love with an a
    Because she is a queen
    I love my love and a a is the best of them
    Think well and be a king,
    Think more and think again
    I love my love with a dress and a hat
    I love my love and not with this or with that
    I love my love with a y because she is my bride
    I love her with a d because she is my love beside
    Thank you for being there
    Nobody has to care
    Thank you for being here
    Because you are not there.

    And with and without me which is and without she she can be late and then and how and all around we think and found that it is time to cry she and I.

  2. Thanks for posting an anti acrostic to complement my acrostic!
