An Alliterate Aardvark

Allison Alred’s amazingly agile and adorable aardvark, Alfred (Alf), astonished all after Alf ate Ali’s award-achieving azaleas. After all, aardvarks annihilate Arizonian ants! Agreed?!

“Alas!” ailed Ali, aching. And anon, Ali’s affect assumed acerbic animosity.

Ashamed, Alfred absconded.

Alf accepted Australian alienation. Alone, away, afar.

As ages advanced, Ali and Alf aspired amity.

Alf apologized. Ali accepted, adoringly.

Afterward, Alf ate ants, avoiding azaleas altogether.
