Lipogram by Sheila Ash

A lipogram is a type of poem in which you restrict the use of certain letters. I just found this out. It is really difficult to do, at least for me. This was my first short attempt to try and write something only using ‘e’ or the soft ‘e’ sound as the only vowel.

  1. It's quite difficult to write that. I am glad to see your lipogram here.

  2. Text messages have a 209% higher response rate than phone, email, or Facebook which is why bulk SMS USA has become one of the most popular communication channels in the US for both business and peer communication.
