Oulipost #8: Beautiful Inlaw (Beau Present)

Assembled poem using only words with the same letters in a name taken from my challenge news source, the Gulf Times. Following his recent Formula 1 victory in Bahrain:


















Lewis Hamilton

Showman in whom we wish. Homies
Sit in sweat, somewhat womanish.

Awe in how he eats ailments with haste,
How he hates his toenails and waits.

One-One won one...
Two-Two won one, too.

Hamilton hoists his towel when he hits it.
Let him howl in the manhole hamlets now.

His honest lament that moistens elation
With wealth. He loathes menthols, aliens.

What shines, solemn, holiest Lewis
in metametals. Listen to silent heat waste awhile.

He sweats his oil hailstones as an oath shines
Alone to atone in the mean tales he whines.

Hi, Reiser.

I agree. Perhaps, of the ouliposts I've posted, this is one I like a bit more than the others.

Thanks for saying so!
