Okay, before y'all go gettin' all worked up over the first few lines, PLEASE read the whole thing--then you'll understand!!!        
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Banner Joy (a challenge by Marge)
***********

"Click the banners! Click the banners!"
is all I hear from you
every night when I log on
you think I have nothing else to do

those things are so annoying
I don't know a soul who looks
I wish they were never there....but wait--
what's this?  half price books??

okay, okay--one click won't hurt
I just won't tell anyone
that I actually clicked on one of those things
my cool facade would be done

hmmm....let's see--what do they have?
cookbooks, auto repair, and fishing
they're all half price, which is great, I guess,
but I don't see a thing for me

magazines and books on tape
I think I will be going soon
I scan by a section of children's books
GASP! Could it be....????
GOODNIGHT MOON!!!!!!!!!!!

my FAVORITE book since I was a lass
and it's here as plain as day!!
Half-price, too--where's my credit card?
I've got buying to do--out of my way!!

fill the order form out, type the numbers in right
this is so easy to do
aw, what the heck--I've got credit to spare
throw in "Cat in the Hat", too!

I've bought my books, I'm so filled with joy
but now I must mind my manners
It's time for me to go post a new topic....
"Click the banners!"

"CLICK THE BANNERS!!"

BobbyCat~
See,
I wouldn't steer
you wrong.
It's what you wanted
all along.

'Cat In The Hat'
oh, dear me !
Now I have to
just go see !

Great little rhyme
I'm glad you clicked.
Hope your books
come real quick.

Mistikman~ thanks for the kind words.  

Marge~ I'm glad you liked it!  I thought you might get a littel upset with the first two verses, but I'm glad you didn't! LOL  Thanks for reading!
