The Sneeze

Mrs. Snuffles' epic sneeze
Blew her ruffles to the knees
While blowing her nose, she tore her hose
Disturbing the neighbor's peace
The neighbor was so displeased
He lost his temper and shrieked,
"Please, Mrs. Snuffles pull up your ruffles
The wheezing and sneezing must cease
The obnoxious kerfuffle is simply abnormal
And you have frightened all of my geese!"

    Oh my, my -- I think Mrs. Snuffles is a contender for my sister's sneeze-- her sneeze is horrible, I really hate it, I mean she sneezes with a shriek-- Ugggh. Haha. Sorry, reading this made me imagine my sister's sneeze. Very fun poem. And thank you for passing by my post-- yes, so weird with those spike in views- must have been a glitch? I don't get to spend as much time here so those thousand plus views sure were waay abnormal for me o_O

    For some reason, this reminds me of Lewis Carroll, and Lord knows he was brilliant. This was funny and witty and oddly enough, I wish you would have used "kneeses" instead of just "knees" lol. This is a killer poem; absolutely loved it!

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 8/19/2013 10:46:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Well, thank you very much... I wish I would have used kneeses also... I think I shall re-edit ..thanks !

    Superb cadence and rhyming, and extremely funny! 'kerfuffle?' you must be British. Well done, Karen! Best wishes, Keith
