No-No's - Poem by Patti Masterman

Never say wood to a woodpecker,
Or yell boo at a rambunctious boot.
Never go steady with a Rapemaster,
Or root, for a rutabaga soup.

Never hide a file in a porridge,
Or misplace a poisoned philtre.
Never wear a hat, for a dictionary,
Or wear kilts- if you're off-kilter.
