Wallpaper Vapors

Wallpaper Vapors? 

I wanted to repaper my room
But mom and dad said it’s too soon
You just did it yesterday, you crazy kook
But THAT paper had kayaks and today I want nuns
My parents just looked at me, clearly stunned
Had I gone religious all of a sudden?
Ignoring them I tore down the paper with glee
It wasn’t level, anyone could see
And put up my nuns in revelry
But the nuns didn’t pop
So I decided to stop
And hang up my posters of musician Kidd Rock
But that looked too teenish to me
So I threw them away and grabbed a painting
Van Gogh’s “Starry night” looked like a dream
The perfect wall covering, at least while I sleep...

Palindromes used: repaper, mom, dad, kook, level
Black Eyed Susan

    Well it's a fact that it is a woman's privilege to change her mind! Sounds like a room to keep one awake! Nightmares anyone? :)
