The House In The Woods

The Rogue Speaks:

Very clever, Miss Jenny! You thought you could challenge us with poetry for your Saturday Centus, but now you have to read the words of all the Dr. Zeuss wannabees in blogland! Well, here's my hasty offering! Now I'm off to the Tucson Museum of Art spring festival, to check out all the pretties they have on display. As always, the prompt is in bold type:

The House In The Woods

I’m not a chicken,”
The young boy said.
He took off his cap,
And sat, scratching his head.
“I’ll run to the front door
And give it a rap!
Those spooks, they can’t hurt me!
They’re taking a nap!”
His buddies were laughing,
“A chicken,” they think.
Their leader just sat there
And gave them a wink.
“I’d run like the dickens
And I’d be the winner,
But I hear Mama calling!
It’s time for my dinner!”

Sarah said...

Lately I've been running around just like a chicken. A chicken with its head chopped off, that is.

Akseli Koskela said...

Great poem Judie. VERY Dr. Seuss!

askcherlock said...

Wow! You sound just like Dr. Seuss. You pulled this off so well, Judie.

THE SNEE said...

The clock was a tick'en
You're clearly no chicken
I'm guessing instead you're a spell casting wiccan! This was so much fun Judie. Thanks for the laugh!

Jenny said...

Okay, I totally admit it. You are unstumpable girl! Seriously. I loved the rhyme and meter of this little poem. I think it needs to be in a book of poetry.

Hope your art show was fun!

I'm just digging my way out of my behindedness! ha!
