Three Weird Songs

I will sing and laugh at table,
Tell my brother that I’m able
To eat pancakes every day—
Not with centipedes, no way!
In the kitchen darker stories
Bloom like fatal morning glories;
Beautiful they are, but cruel,
Deadlier than day-old gruel.
From a deep, enchanted well
Draw some water, say a spell
That will change (I know not how)
Donald Trump into a cow.

    Ha… My DB just told me if I would make waffles for breakfast today he would clean up the mess. Sounds like a deal to me.

  2. What an insult to cows!

    Show me where that well is! I’ll go there right away.


    So surprising to see Trump approached with so much fairy tale fun. Fatal morning glories really got me.

  5. haha – at the third one…cast that spell…moo

  6. Hahahaha that last one is excellent!! 💜

  7. I’m conflicted about the spell… I like cows… maybe a snake

  8. I love all of these, especially cackling at the last one. There was great alarm at the White House the week the news reported witches were putting a hex on him.

      That wasn’t a hex. That was water from my well! 🙂

  9. It made me smile, but changing him to cow will make him immensely better.

  10. I enjoyed these; especially the last one. Let’s find that well, and make it happen. Smiles.

  11. Best line, last line!!! Thank you for the question posed on my blog. The answer, “Go with the flow.”

  12. Love these. Of course that last one is my fave but I’d like to make him disappear altogether.

    Appreciate your wit MMT. You wrapped it up in the last stanza especially. A good thing of having Trump around is that he is such an adorable punching bag and no one would argue with you.

      Well, Hank, I’m afraid SOME people would argue with me! Thanks, however, for your support.

  14. Just the right sort of poetry to let us laugh about a very serious situation, However beware of a politician bearing gifts in their final year before an election!

  15. I’m in! Show me the way to this well. I’m ready!!!!

  16. In the kitchen darker stories
    Bloom like fatal morning glories…. how I want to hear them all!

  17. Thank you for this glorious bit of laughter. I will totally join this spell. I will even help caring for the cow afterwards.

  18. Love it so very much!!!!
