Silly Words

I'm not in step with the Serious Bards For me, it's the sillier words that chime I see quadrangles instead of a yard Jaunty hootenannies I find sublime I don't howl or cry out, I ululate Clip-clop and flip-flop, both such disarmers! Gummy tutti frutti, please be my date Phenomenology - what a charmer! Silly names rule - Truth or Consequences Walla Walla is a beautiful place Humpty Dumpty brought down the defenses Winnie the Pooh is a bear to embrace Sonnets, free verse, rhymes, limericks, haiku, tomes Silly words deserve their place in our poems.
