Miss Wattle



Hope you know what a wattle is Miss Wattle It's a fleshy, wrinkled, fold of skin Hanging from the throats of chickens and turkeys You're much prettier and much more trim I don't see a wattle hanging down from your neck If fact you have very gorgeous neck Probably getting myself into a bit of hot water Oh well, too late now, what the heck I'm sure you know it's also an Australian shrub From the genus Acacia family Now aren't you glad you tuned in, my sweetie See I know stuff, I'm not just silly If there's anything else I can help you with my dear Like Einstein's Theory of Relativity Be sure to ask, I've got nothing but time I'll try not to revert to Sillytivity So you may want to reconsider your screen name To something a little more charming Like Sweet Cheeks or Great Bod or Honey Lips Miss Wattle can be a little disarming © Jack Ellison 2013
All in fun...

    I know, you my dear friend Jack, would never have harbored any negative feelings in your tender heart, no matter how abusive your language may seem, for you only love could think for everyone, especially our beloved miss Wattle! I have enjoyed your poem, it made me smile and kept me smiling!

    A Wattle is also a structure (wall, roof, ect) built of interconnected sticks or twigs.. Add a little horse hair plaster and you've got a strong structure... Got Dragon to use the shedding brush on the horse-asaurus's tail so he can make little wattle homes for the gutter frogs... somewhere away from our gutters... LOL... Yep... We're a thinking... But my neighbor says the world gets in trouble every time we think... NAW!... just our corner of it ... LOL

    So happy Miss Wattle didn't alert the Soup Police and wasn't too too upset! Phew! Now that's the first time I can remember you talking about a horse-asaurus! You sure have a crazy mixture of friends! LOL xox

    LOL. Yes, I'm very glad I tuned in - and kept reading for your clarification so I didn't have to race off and change my screen name!!!! What a terrible blight on one of our national flowers! (Tho I'm not sure "Sweet Cheeks" would have been much of an improvement lol) I was rotfl. Yet another of your great pieces, you sweet, silly Souper man! xox
