The Reaction

This poem was written in answer to The Word of the Day Challenge:

Stupendous means: Extremely Impressive.

Here’s what I came up with…

The Reaction

“I’m reporter, Ellen Macey. I’ve just come from the performance of a life time by Pianist Lorenzo Martinique and his orchestra. It was stupendous, but don’t take my word for it. Here are some reactions from Lorenzo’s audience:”     

Simply splendid, dear boy.”
Terrific! Oh, what a joy.”
Unreal! Nothing could be better.”
Phenomenal, what a go getter!”
Extraordinary, my good man.”
Nonsense! I’m your newest fan,”
Dynamite! Simply wonderous,”
Overwhelming, and thunderous,”
Unbelievable! What a miracle.”
Superb! They’ll be waxing lyrical.”

“See I told you it was, Stupendous!” Reporter Ellen Macey from the Theatre Valencia, signing off.”

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories and poems to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 and Poetry Corner tabs.

Have a great day!

    1. Aww, thank you. This one was a story that didn’t work, that began a poem that ended up as the acrostic you saw. I was going to get something no matter what. The result was different but okay I think.

      Thanks for reading.
