Simile: Sade’s Trip to Dwight.

 

Preparations so pressing with air so intense; Pencils like ready rifles. Make a list!
From dawn shattering the sky until the sun’s ray at noon; 

No time for friends or play, making noise like a loon.  
Thoughts are jumbled like big spider webs; 

Lay out clothes, coffee, and clock to wake up our heads. 
Here’s the order for the pantry, as empty as a tub; 

Make my appointment for Tuesday, for my ladies club. 
Jot this all down, son. You’re as sweet as a flower. 

Mom, this is an 80 mile trip. You’ll be home in three hours.

Alliteral: Face-off with Fibber

Facial features flabbergast me, ranging from flat to flabby. Fabulous freckles fanning across the front. Peach fuzz, or fu Manchu flatter faces. Some have furrows formed from frowning. Faces are fantastic. Without them we would be featureless. 

Wow, that was bad. Consider it took me long moments to arrive at the puny paragraph you just perused. Consider that Jim Jordan did his alliterations on the fly, ad libbing all the way. His technique? Take a breath, and let fly with the words until the air supply ran out. 
Enjoy a few samples.
