Seven Dwarfs

~Seven Dwarfs~  (limerick sequence)*

There once was a dwarf named Doc,
Who saw patients around the clock.
He hadn’t gone to medical school,
Yet his patients he could easily fool,
For his meds were always chalk.

There once was a dwarf named Sleepy,
Whose wife was extremely weepy.
She wanted to travel
But couldn’t unravel
His hair from the bed canopy.

There once was a dwarf named Happy,
Who ate only fudge and taffy.
His tummy got big.
He looked like a pig.
So he switched to chocolate frappé.

There once was a dwarf named Bashful,
Who’s wallet was always cash full.
Too timid to spend
For fear he’d offend
The peons whose homes were trash full.

There once was a dwarf named Dopey,
Who’s mind was mightily mopey.
His speech was so slow
His belle didn’t know
That he wanted to elopey.

There once was a dwarf named Grumpy,
Who became a little rumpy.
He ran ten miles a day,
But much to his dismay,
His butt just became real lumpy.

There once was a dwarf named Sneezy,
Whose allergies made him wheezey.
He wanted to play the romantic lead,
But instead did the voice of a dying steed,
In a film by Martin Scorsese.

*the real ending to "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"

Thanks for your comments, James. I just got back from visiting Disney World, so it was fun to read this poem again. All of the Seven Dwarfs were part of the Disney parade. Hope to see you posting some more poetry soon! Love, Carolyn

Yo, James, this is brilliant and VERY funny! How lucky we are to have a new member with so much talent. I was laughing out loud at each verse. Doc, Dopey and Sneezy are a riot!! Hope you'll think about entering my "Sphinx Head on Mars" contest. Entries can be either funny or serious takes on the photos. Great to have you here and I'm glad you're enjoying Poetry Soup! Best wishes, Carolyn
