Man in the moon malarkey
Stirring my drizzle of doubt
With a spoon
Logic, integrity lost
On some cat with a fiddle
Spewing his spittle of words
That I have heard before
Is there more?
I think I might have a cow
Join us at dVerse today for the fan favourite of 44 words and what we love to call the “quadrille”. As your host, I am asking you to include the word drizzle or derivative of. I have no idea what came over me to write this…except too many years of singing preschool rhymes.

Nice link with nursery rhymes and especially the line “Stirring my drizzle of doubt”.
Thanks, Frank. Those nursery rhymes seem to follow me everywhere.
loved the internal rhymes and the resolution here.
Thanks buddah. Glad you enjoyed it.
What delightful silliness! It gave me a chuckle.
Then it was worth it!! hehe!
Nice fun departure from the dramatic/romantic/existential/zen fare I usually encounter amongst my fellow poets out here on the trail. I will still be smiling as I move on down the sites; thanks for the prompt & hosting.
Glad to give you a little comic relief, Glenn. 🙂
Laughing with glee here!
I love the image of stirring a drizzle of doubt with a spoon, Mish!
Fun and silly and just a little snarky
Yes, I have a hard time hiding my “snarky” sometimes. 🙂
Unique response with: Stirring my drizzle of doubt ~ Thanks for hosting ~
My pleasure, Grace! 🙂
he he he…giggling here…last line is so perfect.
Thank you, Paul! 🙂
This made me chuckle to myself. I love that last line.
Thanks, Linda. I think I could have gone beyond the 44 words….brought in the dish and the little dog. May have to add to it some day! 🙂
Wow! This is runaway dishing. Fun stuff. But, trust me. Don’t have a cow. I spent summers on a farm as a child. You don’t want to have a cow.
Thanks for reading, Charley. 🙂
How literary, how historical burying your political satire in a twisted nursery rhyme. I love it. I wish I’d done it. Excellent!
Thanks so much for your generous comments, Gay. 🙂
Oh wow, this is priceless! There is always truth in humor and humor in the truth. A great piece and thanks for hosting!
Thanks, Crystal! 🙂
Oh, this was fun to read, there was definitely a message caught up in the rhymes.
Like drizzle of doubt being stirred… and the nursery rhyme reference!
Hahaha – I love this tipped and twisted fairy tale!
That’s fun and nice to read aloud…relaxing!
what an absolute beauty! a twist and twirl of a childhood favourite , I like the use of the word malarkey, so hard to use Mish and you pulled it off so nicely here.
This made me giggle. Any poem with the word “malarkey” in has to be a winner!
I like your play with words and familiar nursery rhymes.
Ha ha, lots of fun.
I’m with Sarah–I giggled, too, and “malarkey” makes me smile.
So funny! I’ll join you in having a cow. Ha ha! ❤
Whimsical, breezy and fun!
I enjoyed this, thanks for sharing. I love a good rhyme and the poem on my poetry blog here on WordPress is about rhyming in case you have time to look? Have a rhythmical weekend, Sam
