Z is for ... ZUT ALORS!

"The technique consists of breaking up a word into its syllables, each of which is then used as a rhyme. The last line of each stanza ends with the complete word."

A-Z April Challenge
From the 1st to the 26th day
A permanent blogging tattoo
Stopping procrastinators being lazy
Working our way from A to Z*
Leaving readers' mouths and minds agape
With posts as colourful as a mandrill
Throughout the month of April
Thank you to Arlee, our valiant marshall
Building connections, akin to a henge
A positive result for a challenging challenge
*English people, please forgive me for using the Americanised 'zee' pronunciation instead of 'zed' for Z, but I couldn't find any words that ended with 'zed' or a similar sounding syllable.
