Felix, Feeling Famished

Felix, feeling famished, finished six thick steaks. Felix, feeling foolish, states, “Thick steaks stink.” Felix, feeling thirsty, swallows six thick shakes. Felix, feeling sickly, states, "Thick shakes suck." Felix, falling forward, frets, “I’m a foolish schlub!”

FAN FELIX TASTIC!!! Not only a tongue twister but a very cute little story tied into it. I need to catch up on all my comments so I can devote my afternoon to trying to do one as good as this plus try to write a number of other poems for the week . Sunday is about my only time for this luxury!!

Nina is sure to like yours because you employed good meter which she enjoys and you made a cute story out of it.

Yeah, if I'm not careful saying "foolish schmuck" I could get censored! Thanks for the visit, friend!
