This is just a bit of nonsense, based on a writing exercise in which every word in a sentence must start with the same letter. Stops you using ‘the’ and ‘and’ and ‘I’ unless you are very clever, which I’m not… perhaps with a bit of practice!
Many Merry Mermaids
Many merry mermaids making mischief make mariners miserable.
Slowly sinking ships sail sluggishly south, sad sailors send semaphore signals shoreward.
We welcome wistful westerly winds – whistling wordlessly, we watch white whales while walking with witches who wonder when we will wake.
Dawn dreamers don’t dally: delve deep, drown deeper; drink deadly draughts, dance delicately down.
Full fathom five.
Bone by bone.
Many merry mermaids make much mischief.
