Treasure Island

John Lyday

(Chicago, Ilinois)

rickety rhyme


rickety man, rickety house
quickly ran, saw a mouse

stately woman, in stick hut
prickly fish, coconut

Man meets Woman half the way
Woman asks Man want to play?

sticky situation, sticky plot
Man tells Woman rather not

Woman looks Man not well hung
Woman tells Woman not much fun

Man tells Woman another time
Woman goes off end the rhyme
