Dora Diller

Rating: 3.3
'My stomach's full of butterflies!'
lamented Dora Diller.
Her mother sighed. 'That's no surprise,
you ate a caterpillar!'
Such a hilarious write, most deserving as The Modern Poem Of The Day. Congratulations to the great poet in Seattle.5 Stars for this very impressive poem!

This short poem depends on the meaning we want to give here to the caterpillar and why it is so significant in the poem.

I wrote the poem 'A World With Too Little Time For Humour' inspired by the poem 'Dora Diller' by the poet Jack Prelutsky and dedicated to Jack Prelutsky.

in a world rushing with little time, too little good humour and wit, but too much anger hate and violence, there is a special place and need for good witty poetry; to write such poetry is satisfying and partly a sacred trust, I could write more but I am suddenly all butterflies, which is unusual I am usually a moth in the candle flame

Brilliant and beautifully delivered. Great humour for one and all in large spades. One of the best poetic comedy writers. With warmly welcomed echoes of the late Roald Dahl.
