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 ©Debra Squyres Just for fun !!

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.
