There once was a man from Nantucket
who told the government to go suck it.
A grand fine did he pay
and in jail did he play.
From then on he was wary to say "f*** it."

I get an uneasy feeling
sometimes in bed.
I feel like my feelings
have turned to heavy dread.

Some of it has to do with anticipation.
Some of it has to do with annoyance.
Sometimes I'd like to be mean.
Sometimes I feel ready for retaliation.

I dream of things good and things bad.
Some of them are heavy with grief.
Some of them are happy and brief.
Some of them are from being mad.

Sometimes I feel lonely and grieved.
I get angry at times. But, if I'm not angry,
near the time I fall to sleep,
I feel somewhat relieved.

It may sometimes be brief,
a sweet moment of relief.
The issues to which we care
pull us back up out from chair.

But take care of thee,
find time just to be.
Take a moment here and there
to calmly breathe the air.

An acrostic is exactly what you wrote, using acronyms to make a little poem, sentence or idea.
It's basically the same thing that "Make a Sentence" ended up being, but they wouldn't have to be as nonsensical.

Yours was a perfect example.
