Maddie, Maddie, mud pie maker, born to be a beaming baker. When making mud pies she feels free, here is her secret recipe: In the searing summer sun, go grab a garden hose, then scoop a hole and have some fun, perhaps behind a rose. There you’ll make a perfect puddle, ankle deep will do, then add ten scoops of garden dirt, measure with your shoe. Add some bugs for extra protein, house flies are nutritious, my pet Bill the Bullfrog says: “they taste so delicious.” Now jump right in and stomp around, watch for little fish, use both your hands to scoop some mud, squeeze it squish, squish, squish. Then place the mud on Daddy’s car, or Mommy’s, on the hood, where its hot enough to bake a mud pie oh so good! You can eat it all yourself or share it your friends. Best to bake on laundry day so as to make amends. March 16, 2021 Nursery Rhyme 2 Poetry Contest Sponsored by Eve Roper

A very clever write, Eric. Good luck in the contest. I love the "squish, squish, squish" because it brings back to many memories!
