Tossed Green Salad

by Kristina Woodhill

the story of Sally Mcgrew
you'll remember when dancin' with Lou
his spins are so fast
Sal now faces the past
where she waves at herself at age two


while Mcgrady plowed, pulled by ole Ned
a frightful sound came from the shed
daft Danny was milkin'
an old goat named Wilkin
his kick let Dan's head vent the shed


in the Castle of Trim there appeared
a ghost with a query quite weird
"would you please fix the cracks
there's a draft up my back
and there's mice making beds in my beard!"

this reminds me much of Shel Silversteen's poetry, his more playful style of abstractness

You are having too much fun...! These are just priceless. I think you and Sallie need to have a run for the Limerick Gold...
