235 – Acronymity

Poem number 235
.
Acronymity
.
The PLO waged war on Jews, the ELO did not
The IRA were terrorists, the LRA log plots
The PCC chastise the press, a BCC hides names
An APC hauls troops to war, the IPC plans games
An acronym’s quite useful but it isn’t always clear –
One letter out is all it takes to get the wrong idea
So be careful, journos, check your prose
Make sure it’s error free
For the SNP won’t like it if you swap their S for B!
