*****mother Goose - Poem by Coach Roth

Little Miss Muffet
sat on her muffin...
then she began to pray...
where oh where is my
little man Peter...
he has a wife
but cannot eat her...
so why doesn't he
come my way...

But Little Boy Blue
the Peter she knew,
and together they
plan to stay...
So Little Miss Muffet
has to tough it...
and look for another
to lay...

    Goosey, goosey gander, shall I wither or wander - better to trespass in nursery rhyme than suffer poetic doldrums any day! Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply

    Fresh fresh :) humorous - (nature abhors the vacuum) the piece with many dots is open for lot of interpretations. The words are well sellected and provoke mostly pleasant emotions - little, miss, muffin, pray, little etc... (Report)Reply
