Pie Chart Chaos

When Jill was asked to create a “Pie Chart” She believed her teacher meant a la carte Using a Lego set Jill felt her goal was met When she finished, there was not one spare part Her project resembled a Ferris Wheel Huge peach pie in the center of the reel And her passenger carts Were scrumptious cherry tarts But Jill’s effort had an Achilles’ heel She took care bringing the pie wheel to class Some oohs and ahs her project did amass But the wheel in motion Caused quite a commotion Pies flew to faces with a forward pass Kids didn’t mind as they ate the remains But most of Jill’s friends had custard for brains A class pie fight ensued And Miss Bigbutt so shrewd Gobbled crumbs citing eminent domain *October 11, 2014

I'm picturing Pie Chaos all over the classroom reading your words Carolyn. But, oh, wouldn't it be fun to see. Just imagine all the kids faces. Lovely, and so funny to read, James :)

A very delicious limerick for sure! I prefer pie over cake any day myself. I think I've written maybe two limericks in my writing life but do enjoy them when others write them so very well! That you've done.. Good luck in the contest my friend..

Maybe, or perhaps Bigbutt had "custard for brains" too. :D

There was a teacher we nicknamed "Bigbutt" and it wasn't because she had a large derriere. LOL :D
