This is an example of an Oulipo. A poem composed within specific constraints. My text is also a Snowball, a poem where each line is a single word, and each successive word is one letter longer. In addition to this I tested myself, by constraining myself to words beginning with successive letters of the alphabet (a rule I bent for the last word).
