The prompt for today is to write a poem that explicitly incorporates alliteration (the use of repeated consonant sounds) and assonance (the use of repeated vowel sounds). This doesn’t mean necessarily limiting yourself to a few consonants or vowels, although it could.

Alliteration is a stylistic literary device identified by the repeated sound of the first letter in a series of multiple words, or the repetition of the same letter sounds in stressed syllables of a phrase. Here’s my submission for today, absolutely alliterating 🙂


Too many men materialistic

To many, money matters

Too many money-matters

Too much money, matters



Various questions queer

Various veil valor

Various worries vague

Various worries weird



Some subjects stay symbolic

Some subjects savor silence

Some subjects best unanswered

Some subjects best suppressed
