Oh it is so good to read a little levity once in a while. I loved the lilt of this funny poem. It certainly painted some interesting word pictures...Could have happened--almost--in some places in the country, from what we have been seeing on the news...Thanks for the good laugh...I needed that. Have had a stressful week...Love and cheers...Helen

Oh, friend, you know just how to do it: write poetry, tell a terrific improbable but true story, and make your readers laugh outloud. Set this to music and you have a ballad for Aaron Willburn to sing to his side-split audiences. I just LOVE you!

Poor Jack! What's wrong with a fun April Fool's joke like that? Haha. This was very funny, and I love how you can take just about any topic and turn it into a catchy poem.

I love how when I'm reading your stuff, I feel like I'm merrily "hopping" from one fun word to the next. Great job with this, Mariane.
