Poetry in Motion and Last Day to Enter Summer Giveaway

 (the following was written in response to winning "Alice", a figurine, in a giveaway from Linda in New Mexico's blog) 

Alice Escapes
(A badly rhyming poem, but true nevertheless)

There once was a young girl named Alice
Who came to live in a palace
Her ticket said “Dallas”
But quite without malice
The bus dropped her off….in Albuquerque!

Her eyes grew wide
Once she came inside
“It’s Casa du Cuckoo!” she cried.

There was a bedbug of plaid
A tea party gone mad
Well, maybe it won’t be so bad.

The Olde Bagg returned from her roamin’
“Oh, Alice“, she says, “Welcome ho-em!”
“Our food is quite good and the kids are quite grand”
“Shall I write it all down in a po-em?”

“That’s okay,” Alice replied in a hurry.
“I think it’s time to scurry“.
“Don’t leave in a flurry
I’m about to make curry.”

And the Olde Bagg and Kids started dancing…..with turtles!

Things were getting a bit quirky
“I must be leaving Albuquerque!”
She caught a passing turkey
Who walked a tad jerky (oh, you know turkeys can’t fly).

Somehow through magick mostly
She traveled through the postly
Like a bird that was a-bobbin’
She’s come to live with Robin.

Forever and evermore
