Verse and worse

There once was a bloke called Wilberforce Schneider
Who slid down ALL banisters (and was nicknamed The Slider)
He did blackflips and star jumps and 360-spanglers
But his mother complained that he ruined his Wranglers


Maggie May said...

Wilberforce Schneider
Whose Mum searched the Web
Was named The Spider
And his father was dead!

She'd wrapped him in silk
Then she ate him up
She brought in the milk
And proceeded to sup.

Nuts in May

So his mum started with her rants
That he'd ruined his costly pants
She said, "You've got a tear
And your bottom is bare!
You're clumsy, just like elephants!"

'E said, "Sorry my dear mother
I'll have to ask me dear brother
If I can borrow his jeans
'til we mend mine and they're cleans
And next time the rail I will cover."

OUCH! :) Love your colorful photo of the ice cream parlor and chairs.

When Wilber was way back in his teens,
He had a knack for destroying his jeans,
Now he's all grown up and in the marines,
Capt. Schneider now blows things to smithereens.

Maybe, Maggie - she was the old woman who lived in a shoe. You've got me thinking now!

Eddie, I love how comments take the rhyme further, with their own interpretation - this one put a BIG grin on my face.

Thank you, Artist Unplugged, so glad you like the photo.
