Just Dessert November 28, 2013

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Poetry.

A long-time friend of my mom’s, Carolyn Moreau, enjoyed writing poetry ~ both thought provoking and humorous.

In 1970, she wrote this poem which seems perfect to share for Thanksgiving.

Just Dessert

Pumpkins make me think in meter
About Peter Pumpkin Eater
What kind of spouse was he?
He sounds imperious to me!

And what of Mrs. Peter P?
Was she so happy in that shell?
Or was her life a living hell?

Maybe she longed to ride the roads
To look at other folks’ abodes
Or did she dream of shopping malls?
I bet she could have climbed the walls!

And I wonder if it could be
That once there came a day when she
Made him a luscious pumpkin pie
Then let him have it in the eye!


Aah . . . that’s better!

No pumpkins were harmed in the making of this post.
