Piccadilly Circus

I let Sylvia Plath loose at the zoo.
She wrote a zebra between the lines.

She put a comma on the lone giraffe
to make its neck fit on one page.

She hyphenated the hippos
so that wildebeest could cross the river.

She divided a paragraph
which had too many monkeys in it.

She used onomatopoeia so that tigers
didn’t have to burn so brightly.

I let Sylvia Plath loose at the zoo
and now the lions roar alliteration.
