Radical Word Play

The Read Write Poets got to work on
their Research Working Paper dubbed the "Radisson Witch Project."

It was regarding a Respectful Workplace Program
- located on the Road to Wigan Pier in the River West Plaza -
housing a Rotational Work Program that
tests the Real Wheel Push of tires (a Required Weather Performance).

Ratings Were Placed on the tires on Regular White Paper.
If they did not pass the Rhythmic Wave Process
they were subjected to a Repair Welding Procedure.
This required a Rad Work Permit, which is issued by a Random Weird Person.

Once the Rigid Wave Pattern is employed by a reputable welder person,
two outcomes are possible:
1.) Reliable Wheel Products will move on to a Roads Working Party, or
2.) Right Wing Pundits will send rejected wheel products to the Radioactive Waste Pile.

The Research and Writing Program will post the results to Recruitment and Workforce Planning via a Rational Web Platform on Randys Web Page.

This little bit of nonsense is inspired by the prompt given for day 2 of NaPoWriMo: the ol' acronym switcheroo.  We were advised to go to Acronym Attic and type "RWP" (the initials of ReadWritePoem, of course) in the search field, and then to peruse the resulting phrases that use the letters RWP as their first initials and incorporate them into our poem in any way we see fit.  I decided to try making a story using as many of the phrases as I could.  Of approximately 80 phrases, I used 21 - one quarter of the list... not too shabby!  This was a fun prompt to play with.  Things like this will help me expand beyond my usual "nature" repertoire.

Day 2

I love it!! I actually did laugh out loud reading was so fun and surreal and witty. It's great how you managed to string so many acronyms together into an...instruction manual, maybe? An interoffice memo? Whatever it is, I likes!!

Kristen - Great feedback, thank you! I love being silly with language, and this was a great opportunity to exercise that side of myself. Glad it gave you a chuckle.
