Since the last post went over fairly well, here’s another thing for kids. I wrote this about seven years ago (holy crap), and did some touching up recently. Now and then I feel like writing in verse. I know the meter isn’t perfect, but for this sort of thing, sometimes it’s better that way. ENJOY!
Some Children’s Doggerel
“A poem by Tommie Told, to his love, Molly”
My brother said that when I shed
The current skin I’ve got
That I will sprout a hippo head.
I hope that I will not.
But anyway, I’d like to say
That darling I love you,
And if a hippo head someday
Should make my one head two
We’ll love each other though it’s awkward,
Then we’ll go get married!
And when we’re sick we won’t get doctored
“A poem by Molly Mist, to her Tommie”
Your brother’s probably right, you know
For I’ve a brother too
And he told me I’d also grow
A hippo head like you.
I think that you’re a sweetie Tom
But sorry, we can’t marry
For, you should know that my own mom’s
The local veterinary.
Horses, dogs and cats, and me
Indwell her waiting room
And I don’t think she’ll ever see
A hippo-headed groom.
