Tonguedancer 05 Wishful Winkers - Poem by Stewart McKenzie

My son Sam sent me a poem
Called Wishful Winkers
Made up from English words
He had been teaching his French speaking girlfriend
He said it reminded him of a 2nd grade vocabulary list
This is the poem -

Wishful Winkers

Tousled top and
Twiddling dawdlers
mozy over morning
dabbling the day
and twizzling the night

I said that I liked his nonsense poem and that it qualified as a TongueDancer
He said “it's not quite nonsense. what would you be doing if you were
twizzling the night and waking up tousled? ”
I said “dabbling in dalliance I dare say”.
