  2. Acrostic is a poem form
    Containing a device
    Rhyming’s not essential, no it
    Only makes it nice
    Sometimes it is difficult
    To write acrostic muse
    It took a lot of patience
    Composing this for youse

  3. I just made one, with pen and paper, but I can’t get it to format here. Anyway, it was a fun way to pass the time. I doubt that I will ever do it again.

  4. Here’s the one I made. The comment form won’t let me put the numbers under the lines, so I put them inside the lines. The slashes / are spaces between words. I saw how you all struggled with Patterico’s, so I thought I’d make the clues extra easy, but then decided not to.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS.

  5. So nobody wants to give it a try? And I spent almost my whole week’s allowance of executive time on it. What if I gave you a really big hint? The acrostic, i.e. the word formed by the first letters of the six clues below the quote and to whom the quote is attributed, is CUSTER.

    Oh, what the heck, have one more hint: If you solve it, remember the moderation filter when you post the quote.
