Magical Writing Beans

Momma soaked my magic beans
Then tossed them in a pot to steam
They lost their skin
Now I can’t spin
A tale that’s worthy of esteem

Those beans I traded for a duck
Coming with them writer's luck
Oh, woe is me
Could she not see
Those beans could earn me many bucks

“Come Eat!” She hollered up the stairs 
So down I came and with horror stared 
There were no beans
For so it seems
She had traded them for a duck, prepared

A whistle near the window sash
Made me jump and to it dash
The trader beamed
Eating those beans
Winked, and disappeared in a magic flash

    You should just enter it, Debra. it's a cute one. I could see the Jack and the bean stalk theme in there. But you changed it and did not have him growing a stalk!!

    Fun indeed. When mother's say, "better eat your beans", well, maybe not.
