(limerick) My Name Is Louise (Part One) - Poem by WES Vogler

My Name Is Louise (part one)

An organ's a piano that growls.
We've a puppy like that and he howls.
And when he does that,
It's 'cause of the cat,
Or the budgie or one of the owls.

I live in the back of a store.
We sell guppies and goldfish galore.
We also sell snails
But never sell whales..
When it sold, we forgot to get more.

My name is Louise. I'm a tease.
I am seven years old, if you please.
Ev'rything that you've read
I made up in my head.
It is time for an on-coming sneeze.

    I've read all of oogies adventures
    And my smile could not be immense-er
    As far as Bri goes
    Let him pick at his toes
    Louise doesn't need any censor

    Oh don't worry about Bri and I we are very comfortable with one another he is just an habitual editor
    Thank you for the lovely limerick. I sometimes think the art is dead..

    favorite lines:

    'But never sell whales...
    When it sold, we forgot to get more'

    'My mom is quite nice, highly rated,
    Though a little opinionated. '...esp. nice rhyme

    'I'm afraid that I'm starting to prattle.
    I'll leave you now, maybe then that'll '

    ============================
    SOME 'problem' areas for me:

    'I spead newspapers, even, around'.....spread?


    'It's been said that I write with panache.
    I looked 'tup, and it gave me a rash. '................nice rhyme, but ' 'tup'? ?



    'The plot... Probly 'volving my cat'll.'....prob'ly? 'cat'll'? cat call? cat kill? cat skill?

    entertaining. i'm trying to catch up after my long absence. i felt i HAD to devote some time to this long-ignored poem from you.

    thanks. bri :)

    Forget it Bri. You are dealing with a seven year old girl and this is the way she talks.
    Edit away but not with this baby. episode one thru seven have cast the dye.
