The Princess and the Pimp

A preening promiscuous princess posed as "Penelope Prude." With her poodle and parasol; well-perfumed, on Pine Street she stood. A pompous pilfering pimp with a pink-painted poodle passed by. He paused, popped his eyes, then approached while plotting to pounce and ply the princess with persimmons and pearls, prepared to profit from her, but Penelope quipped, “Poppycock! I’m a capitalistic entrepreneur!” For john freeman's "Alliteration Poems Please Poetry Contest"

Girlfriend, you make me smile, ya do! I can't seem to write funny, all of a sudden. I do do funny. Funny is busy getting ready for Oktoberfest, I guess. Honest, we have the biggest Oktoberfest in Canada here in KW. Oompapa for 2 very long flipping weeks til I'm ready to grab the first pair of liderhosen and snap those puppies. E-I-E-I-E-I oh. You may need to be a local to get that. Loved the way you closed your poem, by the by! Should be tops! Hugs, Cyndi

There was a time when I would have not liked this as much as I do now. You have opened my eyes to poetry. You have been busy writing and typing. This is a Great thing! Thank you.

I am going to have to try reading this one aloud. Great alliteration. Yes I am voting for the guy with Sinatra voice. (actually I never vote). He is wonderful as are the youngsters but they can try again. Joyce
