Hephaestus's Horrid Hiccup
A tautogrammatic, poetic recounting of something that absolutely did not happen
Hairy hero Hephaestus harrumphs...
How he had hoped his half-Hanoverian, half-Haflinger, horse "Horatio" had held hushed.
However, hope hurriedly hastened hellward.
He halters Horatio,
Hands him hay,
However, he HICCUPS.....
Hapless Hephaestus heedlessly hurts horse!
Horse "Horatio" hurls heavy Hephaestus!
HE HOVERS HIGH
Hephaestus's hot hammer hits Hamlet!
How historically horrific!
Helpless Hamlet's heart heavily harmed...
Hephaestus hastens home, hyperventilating, hobbled,... highly humbled.
"HOLY HELL, Horatio!"

I'm a sucker for anything with Greek myths, and the story here flowed very well, especially considering the alliteration rule. Nice poem!
Big words , small words, happy h and h words. Wonderfully highlighted h words. Thoroughly enjoyable,
This was great, I laughed and thoroughly enjoyed this read! Thanks for reminding me to smile today!
Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.
Great job Donna!!! You have a wonderful talent with words.
This made me laugh so much! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 You made my day!
It's amazing how much of a story you were able to tell in this tautogram. Fantastic work!
Better than the one I slapped together in a friend's messenger DMs, that's for certain. Lowkey though, I would like a comedy about everyday living with God's such as Thor, Odin, Neptune, Saturn, Quetzalcoatl, etc. That'd be pretty cool. Something like a remix of "Heaven's Design Team."
This challenge was made for you! Wow! So imaginative!
lol. This is great Well done.
HAHAHA This was fun
Haha! Hooray Horatio!
Ha ha! H-excellent!
HaHaHa! Not cringing at all, the whingey little Danish prince deserves a good kick from a horse, especially Hephaestus' horse. This is beyond clever Donna; it actually tells a coherent story!
Now this one I got! Great job as always.
Haha very impressive!!
Haha, this is one of my favorites for sure!! My English teacher sensibilities are far from offended. It’s not everyday Hamlet and Hephaestus get to make a cameo in the same poem. 😆
This is FANTASTIC and so impressive! What a clever little story- you executed this so well!
Love the opening line! this was so funny.
"with apologies to my teacher friends who are cringing right now"...Nah you good! This was awesomely amazing.
So much fun!!! Loved how easily this flowed like a story despite the very rigid rules. Wonderful work!!
"How historically horrific!" lol
Clever and funny!
