Toothless Ruth



You can have your Toothless Ruth Or Jeannette the sweet Coquette But you can't have Crazy Harold What part don't you get? They gotta rhyme like Contrary Mary Or Peter with the Metre long nose There's famous Georgie Porgie And of course there's Black Hose Rose There's more, there's Moody Judy Or nasty old Cranky Frank There's Earl who's very Squirrel like And how about Hank the Yank Ever heard of Frail Gail Or Valerie on the Gallery What about Kate by the Garden Gate There's Calorie counting Mallory There's the sweetheart Shelley Belly And silly old Jack the Quack Scott who sails a great big Yacht And Barack who's got the Knack I could go on for quite a while There's Bob who's known as Rob But Gord is starting to get really Bored So I'll end this tale with a sob! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon 's have to earn their names... Like his distant Uncle 'Sir Sparkle farts a Lot'.. We're waiting for Dragon to earn his... I'm sure it'll be good... His father was known as "The Fearce and the Fearless'. I'm imagining Dragon as more of a 'Dumb and Dumber'... OOOPPPs he heard that... It was only a joke Dragon! Really! Now quite puffing at me... Oh Darn... gotta go... Good sneakers to run in... J.O.K.E. Dragon! ...Sigh! ...Gotta run!
