Treasure Island

Mary had a Little Limp


Mary had a little limp
from fall, gymnastics skipping,
she's now obliged to scrape and scrimp
upon MacDonald's tipping.

MacDonald's farm bred little lambs,
that played all day splay skipping,
full circle run poetic iambs
in rhyme that's timely tripping.

In lines offline Macdonalds cram
beef orders, sparsely shipping
shrimp, parsley, horse, as stanza cam
lamb theme on stream grooves gripping.

Grooves lead to rails behooving tram
or hooves as in horse nipping,
removing doubts as on the lam
verse bows out, forelock tipping.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
