Theme : Poetry Types A for Acrostic
What is beauty? A perception? A fad? An attitude?
Here’s my view in the form of a Blitz.
thoughts raised by stereotypes
Stereotypes based on colour
size doesn’t define people
traits define inner beauty
traits aren’t showcased by Photoshop
Photoshop is used to print glamour
reality ain’t airbrushed beauties
soul that thrives to survive
soul filled with compassion
compassion towards humankind
prejudice corrodes society
society needs be broad minded
you can remove misconception
anorexia sucks away smile
smile along with life

Robert Keim is the created of the Blitz poetry form. It’s a poem with repetitive images and has a quick flow, which is read very quickly.
The beginning can be a short phrase or cliche. Now start the next line with the same word as first one.
The third and fourth line with begin with the last word of line 2. The 5th and 6th lines will begin with the last word of line 4 and so on. Continue writing like this till 48th line.
The 49th line would be a single word- same as end word of line 47, and 50th line will be same as the last word of line 48.
