    My longest alliterative verse.

    Couldn't get it moved so, deleting LOL.

    Sorry was my first post and clearly in the wrong forum.

    It reminds me of tongue-twisters such as "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers" which goes on, but I can't remember it anymore.

    There is also the alliterative verse form that is used in Beowulf, however, not every word begins with the same sound.

    Lol. Some line breaks; and a little more continuity might help a bit.

    But quite fun.

    Oh my goodness, that is so funny!

    My favorite was:

    “Purple packages precipitate paranormal phenomenon (periodically)”.

    Okay, I’ll take a shot at it.

    An alliteration as above, although annoying, almost allures anyone.

    Albeit, as an avid alcoholic and amphetamine abuser, alliterations are asinine and awkward.

    Anyways, ages ago, attempts at appending alphabetical abnormalities always abated acceptance, and abhorred anti-christians and atheists alike.

    Anew are absolutions, as are ages. Ambiguity and anomalies are accepted as argumentative; as apples and apricots are (about as akin as axes and arrows).

    All about ‘air’ anyways. And as always, again, alcohol and amphetamines await.

    This whole thing is so funny!

    Haha, whoa!

    That was good, I laughed a lot and it didn't seem like it even had alliterative constraints.
    My mental voice was Forrest Gump to which it was hilarious.

    Now mine seems cluttered and disorganised - which it is. Letter A was a wise choice.
    I struggled without 'and/was/it' so it clangs together awkwardly where I ended up trying to use as many different P words as possible and only once, if possible.

    I ended up with quantity, you delivered quality. I wanted as much as I could rattle off but yours seems much more with less in its subtlety. Very good!
