Nothing more

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.

  4. 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.

    • 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! πŸ™‚

  11. 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.

  12. How literary, how historical burying your political satire in a twisted nursery rhyme. I love it. I wish I’d done it. Excellent!
