  1. That was a fun little essay. Acrostic poetry is a new style for me. But I am at least familiar with hiding words amongst words and thereby doubling the meaning. It’s still alot of work though, and yes, rhyme and meter apparently take on a lesser amount of note.
    So on that note I would to challenge some of these ‘hip-hop’ stars to write something truly creative and come up with the first mnonemic rap song. Could it be done?


    • It can be done for sure but the problem is acrostic poetry is visual in nature. You would not perceive the key unless it was made to be obvious somehow. Not sure how but an interesting thought.
