trying to kill too many birds

Purple, polka-dot flamingos and buzzards frolic near the sleeping volcano lake. It wakes and rumbles, crumbling the Haunted Mansion! ~~Driving me Crazy "Failed to nail it! Poetry errors glaring! Stop pretending poetic metric knowledge! Clearly Dear, you're too near the sun!"--Well, Pluck you! Poisonous Parrot! Not for any of the contests: (Sleeping Volcano, Sapphic Stanza, Purple, Polka dot, Flamingos and Buzzards, Haunted Mansion, Plucking the Poisonous Parrot ) Just for fun :) January 16, 2019

Lol! PS, This is funny and entertaining. Not to mention so darn clever! I agree with Carolyn, she should each of the contest. If you do I think you would be on the winners list. Excellent job:-) Alexis

Funny! I can only say: 'non illegitimi te carborundum'! I always look forward to something from your magical pen (and magical heart)! This is great! Sometimes, you just have to stand up for your inner child!

Good one, P.S., you got a laugh out of me! (Though I'm a little disappointed you didn't include anything about poisonous parrots. :-) )
