Others oblige obsessively observing
Outdated omens and oracles
Officially offering odious oral operettas,
Orating outrageous obituaries
Offering outsourced oatcakes
Overemphasizing ones overrated oxidation
Opining objections overruled.

I’ve decided to celebrate my 60th birthday by practicing for a new prompt I found in Indubala Kachhawa’s publication Paper Poetry.

Writing it in tautogram form was inspired by Carolyn Hastings submission.
