Dinner on the Redneck Riviera

Cuter than a June bug was Blossom
Bubba's hound had a nose for possum
   Bush moved and they watched it shake
   Not a possum, dadgum snake
Bubba took aim, results were awesome

Tweren’t the end of Blossom’s era
Sucked out venom; used Aloe Vera
   Dinner was finger lickin’
   Snake tasted just like chicken
Felt like a Redneck Riviera

    Congratulations! A very well deserved win, Carolyn. Jack : ) Yes, Dr Ram is a very interesting chap. Everyone on this site seems very friendly and nice. I'm glad I joined. Friends run a sort of writers' group, with a magazine every other month, and are always saying how unresponsive their members are. Janie and Cass would love this group - but they don't like poetry...

    this is comical ! what is a redneck fire alarm box ? a tin of jiffy pop popcorn hanging above the doorway.

    A couple of imaginative limericks. Snake really isn't that bad.

    I loved " dadgum". The vernacular is riht ther, my dear. It's been hard, but I'm here again! Thanks for everything! Love, Gerard.

    Speechless!!! Now there is some serious redneck creativity...does one have to drink moonshine to "suck out snake venom?" whoah! Two thumbs up that this one's the winner! Gwendolen :)

    Talk about originality, this epitomizes it. Loved the whole scenario. I wish you well in the contest. I have some red neck stuff that I may dig out one of these days. Problem is some of my best work is too long for the limits here. Oh, thanks for your comments on my Three Blind Men thing. And I felt good about you selecting it as a new fave. I got a chuckle from the piece myself, hope that is not conceit.

    Yikes, this one is quite witty, but I am pulling my face at the whole snake tasting like chicken line hehe ;) Good luck for John's contest.. love Wilma

    H0, hardy har, har, har. This is a sure winner. I've heard that grasshoppers taste like chicken too. Think I'd rather sample the grasshoppers. Congrats on your kickass victory. Love, Dave

    Quite a new theme in your writing. Beautifully composed lines and a great limerick. My good wishes for your contest entry my friend. I have placed part 6 of the ‘When the Earth was in danger’. Hope you would give your precious comments on this new development in these concluding story parts. Love and best wishes..Ravindra...Carolyn Devonshire
