Silly Sack

You’ve got to have a certain knack when opening your Silly Sack for the beasts within will attack to win with no hold barred, no turning back. Now these are not the monstrous sort, it’s just that they do not comport. It’s mischief they seek and havoc they wreak, treat mayhem like it is a sport. Prepare for giggles, snorts, and laughs, guffaw at awkward giraffe gaffes, where well-tailored storks use knives, spoons and forks, where self-signed cars give autographs. Juno the talking dog - she’s in there too and you know what Juno likes best to do. She’s as big as a horse; we’ll ride her, of course, go see the adults kept down at the zoo! So loose the drawstring, open it wide; heck, you might even jump down inside! But there’s no turning back from a loose Silly Sack when imagination is your guide. ————— for the Children’s Limericks Poetry Contest sponsored by Eve Roper written on 11/30/22

I found the quatrains less restrictive and precise, Jeff. Yeah, I think they are the better format for this poem.
