This poem was written for the 52 word challenge on the theme “backwards”. You can read it from top to bottom, or the other way round. The first letter of each line, from bottom to top, spells out the word that describes the subject of the poem. Just for fun…!


Languishing at long last in jail
As he ponders his crime
Nightmarish images of being caught, oh the shame,
In flagrante delicto
Murder in the first degree, premeditated and precise
It had been a unanimous decision
Rage resounded like a church bell throughout the court
Captured at last, the cowardly criminal
