Skeltonic Verse (short rhymes that keep rhyming)

Did You Ever?

Did you see that bee
buzz into a tree
where he should not be
`cause the rent was free?
He has nowhere to be,
his hive thrown out to sea
by a sailor named, Smee
who sang a Shanty
of the cruel Captain Hook,
a scalawag and crook
with a scornful look,
yet he shook and shook
when the croc mistook
his arm for Chinook
salmon, preferably uncooked.
Read this tale in Book of Schnooks.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
