Treasure Island

Valsa George

Limericks,9,10, A Worm on My Back, A Naughty Boy

A worm on my back

Wriggle wiggle waggle ugly little worm
How I dread to see your pliable form
On my back you jiggle and crawl
Tickling me to wobble and howl
Leaving me itchy and scratchy as you squirm

The Naughty Boy

A naughty boy lived beside a sloping rock
Once he ran up the shelf so steep
A chip of the rock gave way
The boy lost his sway
Ouch! Landed on his cushioned bum in a creek

    I like that despite having different themes these poems relate to each other perfectly. It feels like going on a camping trip. These two things could be happening simultaneously and in the same place. They both have a very natural connectedness to them. The odd thing is the video/music that PH has supplied doesn't suit the tone of these lively, playful poems, such a shame! Regardless together or apart they are a joy to read.

    VALSA, i already knew you detest snails, but cute little old worms? ? ? ? ! i like this tale of woe. may all your worms fall from you and never return! but i'd rather have them on the outside than the inside, ....i think.

    thanks for sharing. ;) bri

    Some Say Cushioned

    Some say cushioned, some say fat....
    when referring to on-what-the-boy-sat.
    Needless to say it's nice sometimes to have extra stuff.....
    when the trail's sloppy OR slopey and the going's tough. (Report) Reply
