"Nannah!" all the kiddies cried
"We have no food! we ache inside"
"Please cook us something, make it quick!"
"We're all so hungry, weak and sick!"

But Nannah knew there was no food
to quell her now unruly brood
and so she took her butchers knife
she found a dog, she took its life

The mongrel stew was tart and bitter
and left them straining on the $hitter
t'was but a day then it vanished
the kiddies cries appeared unbanished

"Nannah end our hunger pangs"
"gives us meat between our fangs"
"Soup or broth or steamy stew"
"Some chicken bones or cordon bleu?"

So Nannah, with her spade in hand
stalked across the barren land
she slew two rats, a snake, a mole
two seagulls and a brown-haired vole

At home she skinned her prey with ease
wasting not a single piece
all teeth and hair, each bone and eye
was baked into a pizza pie

The children sat; anticipation
their stomachs dreamt; emancipation
Nannah brough the giant pie
a tear of pride welled in her eye

Ravaged by the children ten
they ate their fill then ate again
when the meal was done they belched aloud
o what a filthy, belt-popp'd crowd!

Then one by one as if in order
a maladie or gut disorder
fell across them in a wave
rufus first, then sam and dave

Great sprays of puke from the scallywags
splashes, chunks cast out in gags
Out it came and where it fell?
...back into the pizza shell

And how did Nannah ease this fault?
she added pepper, (and some salt)
threw it in the oven when
the kiddies ate it once again!

The moral of this sickly tale
if kiddies cry and stomachs wail
serve them what nature provided
regardless where it once resided

Poetwheel...next time please ask them to leave the anchovies off your pizza!
(that must be some case of heartburn you had!)

Dare I ask how you came up with the idea for this one?

I loved it.. kinda reminded me of my favorite childhood song..

"Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts, mutilated monkey meat, dirty little birdy feet, french fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood.. and I forgot my spoon!!!"

Ok... I was a tomboy.. I admit it.. hehe.. still am at heart. Bravo Poetwheel!

Ahh friends! I don't know if I enjoyed writing it or reading the responses more! Thanks for your curt rebukes.

Poetwheel,
I enjoyed the poem
The message clear
It was almost like
A Balladeer.

Here I was, ready to write
about great food and tasty bites
when of a sudden arose a clatter,
why, it’s Poetwheel’s kitchen platter.

I think I’ll now wait awhile
before I share with all my smiles
of some simply excellent food
while Poetwheel feeds her brood.

I hope you're not offended by the "curt rebukes", but I did find this poem gross. The rhyme, however, was excellent. And how DID you come up with it?

I think the answer would be,
"there was an old lady who lived in a shoe,
had so many children, she didn't know what
to do!"
Thanks for the laugh PW!
