Peanut Butter and Jellyfish

Oh, jellyfish, oh jellyfish,
What are you good for?
You litter the beach, and your tentacles reach
right through the surf, to sting my bare feet

Inedible you are...
I'd rather by far
bring me a jar
of jam that is red
some good peanut spread
to spread on my bread
and be well fed
instead

    Carrie, wow! I can't believe I forgot to thank you for the nice and silly poem you entered in my contest. A late late late CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you for the smirks and smiles your poem gave me while reading it. Hope you can forgive me, it is not like me to stoop low and diss all who support me or my contest. Even if I get no response, everyone still matters, and I try my best... Love love LINDA...

    Carrie, this poem is quite quirky. I think this is why I like it so much. You have a funky little beat going on with the lines -- Ha!(in a good way). It makes me giggle. You might want to consider writing a whole series.

    I like the outre image of this. You are a true, good poet, one of the better ones on this site, in my opinion and I single you out for praise because there are a few. I hope to complete a massive series of couplets about the various poets on here before , say, Labor Day. You'll be there, I'm sure. Say, Carrie, howdoes one go about sponsoring a contest? Talk to me via Soup Mail. I'm thinking about one for Halloween with all the classic monsters and some REAL prizes! Regards, Gerard.
