Orange Change Agent

This one was fun— A Word Chain Poem, from a prompt in The Crafty Poet: A Portable Workshop, by Diane Lockwood. You should go buy it. Immediately. This prompt is on page 55. Buy it, try it, let me know how it all turns out.

Nothing rhymes with orange
and isn’t that strange?
Nothing in our huge array
of words, of sounds ranging
along the tongue, not one
not even changed
or smashed sounds banged
into new shapes, arranged
None soar
nor
spark with the same tang
as Orange.
