  • Hahahahahhahaha ngl, I was waiting for a fart sound! How come you didn't include that? Oh wait, maybe you can make an Abecedarian full of fart sound's from A to Z. Imagine the judges' reactions reading that! Hahahahahahahaha!!! 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 I enjoyed this so much! It was a creative concept! My favourite was the Xray, sound!

    That was fun, and like Paul said, I too can sound like most of those in the morning.

    What a creative, unique take to the ABCs!

    Now, this was a fun tangent on the style! Well done, H! Side note: My mind must be having one of its twisted mornings, because it thought "Plop, plop, plop" might be the other end of the horse. Sorry...

  • Celia in Underland2 months ago

    This is so clever and funny! Brilliant! 🀍 Think it would works so well spoken with sound effects also!

  • Ziiiiiip (this poem darting into 1st Place)

    You absolute nutter, lol. I wanted to suffix this poem with "What's that sound? Paul trying to get up in the morning" all 26 sounds lol. Well played, miss, well played Donna!
