Hi Twinklepeeps! How about a reverse April fool's joke in which I actually show up and post something?
It's poetry month. And I just have to post something now dont I?
I also want to let you all know that April 29th is Poem in Your Pocket Day . Wouldn't it be fun to pick your favorite poem and post it on your virtual pocket? Let's do it! I'm working on a button, so let me know in your comments if you'd like to play along.
So a poem to kick us off is one I wrote after being stuck in a meeting with lots of flu-ensconced people. Here goes:
Ode to the clorox wipe
And I freeze
Quickly I swipe
A clorox wipe
Thy scent is fresh and lemony
You protect me
From the germs-and you're bleach free!
This germaphobe's love
Runs wide and deep
I dream of wet wipes when I sleep
I shudder at the thought of rhinovirus
Id rather face somolian pirates
Wait, not them- they may be diseased
Just say no to pestilence please!
No streptococcus pyogenes
(I don’t even know what that means)
No Influenza or bacteria
No staphlococcus or eschaeria
-e coli leads me straight to hysteria
So wipe the keyboard, wipe the phone
Wipe the doorknobs, and the garden gnome
Wipe the remotes and faucets too
And to your clorox wipe be true.
(yes, the rumors are correct. Dr. Seuss was my secret boyfriend).
