The World: An Acrostic

Armenia’s in the Caucasus Mountains

Botswana’s elephants have trunks like fountains

Cambodia has rebuilt Pol Pot’s insane way

Djibouti is real tough to say

Ecuador has the Equator for its namesake

Fiji Water isn’t real, it’s fake

Greece’s economy has gone to pot

Haiti has overcome a lot

Iceland lives up to its name

Jamaica’s reputation is far from tame

Kyrgyzstan must have a storied past

Libya is free at last

Macedonia’s name annoys the Greeks

Norway’s days and nights can last for weeks

Oman exports a ton of oil

Panama’s been through much turmoil

Qatar is the only one that begins with Q

Rwanda’s beauty will enrich you

Serbia won its freedom thanks to their hajducii

Turkey was the oppressing country

Uzbekistan does not like Westernization

Venezuala was thought to be a lost civilization

West and East Germany are seperatated no more

Xanadu is just folklore

Yemen’s in the Middle East

Zimbabwe’s alphebitically last but not by no means least

earth peace

  6. The World – an impressive theme to work with, particularly with the tricky letters to deal with too, I half expected to find you stuck towards the later letters of the alphabet but you proved me wrong, well done indeed! The rhyming is epic too, a wonderful use of the prompt. I’ve written an acrostic too that you may want to take a look at:-
