Boy oh boy and a girl

I wish to claim My boyness My yesterday sillyness Innocent shyness My crinkled nose grininess That hide and seekiness Spin the bottle kind of geekiness Getting caught My hand in the cookie jarness That pushing too farness Collecting comic charminess Pulling pigtales Stolen kisses Hidden playboy kinda business Cop a feel inquisitiveness Being a bit Self conscience A true life witness Loving the mysterious Laughing more than being serious Feeling delirious Not afraid Somewhat curious Wondering About adultness What it was all aboutness Thinking that it leads to freeness I'd know just how to be-ness Eating what I want Staying up late kinda keeness Now I wonder What was the rushness To reach adultness Full of it's doubtiness What's it all aboutness I witness it's dreamlessness It's no longer about me-ness More mundane To much saneness Routine and sameness No one cares if you cameness Less is less And more is moreness Can't see the trees Through the dark forest So grab onto your girliness I'll bring my boyness There will be more Way more Yesirey Hotdigity Joyousness No more boringness We'll spin in circles Enjoy our dizziness After all Having fun Is a serious business! For Nina Parmenter’s Tongue Twister Contest. I hope you have as much fun reading as I had writing it.

Not to go around endlessly in circles ... but you know what this reminds me of? You ought to check out the old song Way Back Home by Bob Crosby and the Bob Cats. The topic isn't exactly the same ... but it has all those constant quirky rhymes (most of them made up words) so similar to how this poem is composed!

I can see why you directed me to the song. That was a fun read.

I can see why you guided me here after reading my Firefly poem. It's charming, delightful ... and hits all the right buttons for the love of sentimentality and childhood. Very endearing, my friend. I'll add it to my faves for later enjoyment.
