It Was Pink Flamingoed

Imagine if you will, my friends
my genuine, ultimate surprise,
when riding home from work tonight
such a sight before my eyes.

A yard had been decorated
by someone’s friend, I trust
had it been done to my yard friends,
a treasured jaw’d be bust.

In bright profusion standing round
were Pink Flamingos in the ground!
Pink flamingos, not one or two,
looking ‘round, there were quite a few!

Now I looked and looked and could not see
a tropical paradise, nary a tropical tree...
stuck in the middle of Kansas for all to see
Pink Flamingos, probably twenty-three!

A sign in Pink [what other color, no?]
proclaimed to all “You’ve been Flamingoed!”
Redundant at best, the sign said it was so,
now I’m hunting addresses for ‘Deer and Toe!
