Lamentations is written as an acrostic poem in alphabetical order. It is a collection of five poems. The first four poems begin with the Hebrew letter A (aleph) and then go through the entire alphabet (chapter 3 goes through the alphabet three times!). The fifth poem has 22 verses (the Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters) but is not acrostic. (Source)
