I've wasted most of the morning doodling with a poem that uses as many ai
(as in Mainz) sounds as possible, spelt different ways. I'm in serious
danger of wasting the whole day if I don't get rid of it somehow - so I'm
passing it on! I'm sure there's scope for extending it... :-)

A wide-eyed Odysseus

Lost among wild isles,

I dial for help:

Been driving round for miles.

A wile-dyed Odysseus -

I find the place and park my car.

This Asda is my Ithaca:

Where the wide aisles are.
