Drive To Town

Drive To Town

Surviving slippery slopes
swerving, sliding sideways
with speedometer spinning.
Substantial suspension stabilization   
while shifting and signaling sanctimoniously.
Successfully situating suburbia.

 Sudden stop.

This is a form called an Alliteration.

Alliteration occurs when a series of words in a row (or close to a row) have the same first consonant sound. For example, “She sells sea-shells down by the sea-shore” or “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers” are both alliterative phrases. In the former, all the words start with the “s” sound, while in the later, the letter “p” takes precedence. Aside from tongue twisters, the Alliteration is also used in poems, song lyrics, and even store or brand names.
