Thursday Prompt: Alphabet Poem

Since April is Poetry Month let's create some grand prose alphabet style. That's right, you're going to create an alphabet poem consisting of 26 lines each one starting with the letters of the alphabet. Line one begins with A, line two begins with B, line three begins with C and so on.

Your poem can be silly, witty, romantic, dramatic, horror, gothic, or whatever  you chose as long as you use every letter of the alphabet. Yes, even Q, X and Z. :)
