I had the notion to start a comotion;
Laugh in my bath, then lots of lotion.
I used to have a tiger sponge to wash
With and it was so soapy, I'd squash.
In a backyard; knives in hand, chicken.
Inside I spent my time reading Dickens.
Oliver Twist; licorice - black and red.
Picky eater, Ellen was always well-fed.
Ella, my great aunt gave me a gold ring.
Mother in my childhood, ever she'd sing.
