An A To Zest As I Flip The Test!

So it is time for the a to z. Many have a theme at their sea. Many more are just lazy bums who expect visits without doing a thing. Whoops, did I offend at your blog wing? Not sorry at all. Now where was I at my hall? Oh yes, no theme for me. I will just wing it at my sea. Wait, I have a theme. It is a backwards a to z stream. So my z to a will come what may.

Z is for zest.
Not the food test.
Screw the spice.
Feed it to lice.

Hey, it may kill.
That could thrill.
Zest for lice killing.
My, that would get top billing.

Some will be stressed,
With the a to z addressed.
Some will be on a quest,
To meet many a guest.

Be our guest?
I'm a pest.
Now you have zest.
Singing Disney from your chest.

Beats Let it go.
Whoops, out it will flow.
Damn, double the zest.
Aren't I a pest?

But now you have zest.
Sing from east to west.
The zest does flow.
May scare if you have an open window.

Dogs may howl.
Neighbors may growl.
Might need a bulletproof vest,
But don't let them stop your zest.

Zest will get you through.
Not hard to do.
Maybe touch a breast.
Hey, would give me zest.

Depending on who.
But that you knew.
At least I hope.
No need to mope.

Don't even need to be dressed,
To have such zest.
Of course zest you can tell,
If certain things swell.

Zest to the gutter. Are you going to stutter? Do you have zest? Gonna complete this a to z test? Mad that I went z to a? Bah, go sniff my litter tray. Backwards and maybe upside down sure works in my crazy town. Now Z has been done. Time for Y fun. Can you say the alphabet backwards quick? Like my z pick? I will get crazier in the a to z mass. On that, you can trust my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  49. LOL! Trust you to turn things on their heads, Pat! One of these years I may tackle this challenge, but not this one! I tried saying the alphabet backwards, and didn't make it to x! "Zest" is a favorite word of mine as in "I have a zest for life!" P for passion, E for energy, Z for zest ~ that pretty much sums me up! I'd have picked "Zany" for you! But that's one thing about your posts I really enjoy ~ your zaniness! I'm looking forward to your backward run!
