Betty Boop

Sassy Betty Boop
Said: "Don't take away my boop-oop-a-doop."
Innocent sexuality caused male obsession.
Womanly charms had them lined up in succession.

    I remember her too. Never gave much thought to her sexuality when I was a kid. Great poem brought some old cartoons back to mind.

    CEcilia, I have already now looked at my entries and I don't recall this was in my contest. Are you sure it ever got entered? Maybe I just didn't see it somehow? Anyway, if you don't see it on the winners' list it will be because it was not in the box!! It's a pretty nice clerihew!
