‘Z’ is last - but not in this poem!
Letters take thought and patience to grow 'em.
‘A’ seems reserved for its special space,
and may have tantrums if not in first place.
Twenty-five letters still have to be passed,
to find that lone ‘Z’ which was meant to be last.
I ponder the meaning of last and not first,
and wonder at one point if ‘Z’ had been cursed.
But ‘Z’, in this poem has gotten first place.
Hopefully that puts a smile on its face!
The day will soon come where first will be last,
the last will be first and won’t be surpassed.
Now here is a secret so keep your eyes peeled,
and maybe you’ll find every letter revealed.
It was quite a chore to mix letters this way,
but this time - in last place - you'll find letter ‘A’.
