An X Rated Post

The letter X is the star of the show on Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday. What an Xcellent choice (as if everyone else hasn't thought of this)!

What can we say about letter 24?
It can sound like a Z,
but there's so much more.

Pirate booty on an isle,
The spot, it can mark.
Or a sweet little peck,
A kiss, in the dark.

If you can't write your name,
An X, it will do.
It can also let you know,
that 10 is five times two.
5 x 2 = 10

It can tell the time,
Could it be 10?
Or an unknown value,
It's math once again!
5x + 36 = 46

Keep the kids far away,
If it's on the marquee.
There's nothing going on
that they need to see.

You might call the doctor,
just in case there's a cure.
But if there's two on the eyes,
He's a goner for sure,
( xx )

Anyway you use it,
Mr. X is very dear,
If you bring two together,
it just might be beer!

Beer. Hmmm, gives me a thought. Gotta go, see you next Thursday.

Inventive post.
And then there was the Romans - they never knew if someone was holding up 10 fingers, or blowing a X

This was the best X post in the history of the world.

Or at least in the history of Alphabe-Thursday!

I was so impressed with your writing and unique viewpoint here.

Really totally and completely Xcellent!
