Florida's Foreverly Shores
For Laughing Out Loud
Trying to think of just what
I could write upon this day
Suddenly I had a memory
that said what I wanted to say~
It happened o' so long ago
you'd think one would forget
But as I burst out in gales of laughter
you'll know I haven't yet~
The night was Halloween
the year -who counts those things ?
'Big Sister' dressed you up in rags
and painted your hair braids green !
Well that was not enough you see
so 'Big Sis' proceed to
paint each one with food coloring
in the loveliest of RAINBOW hues~
Many 'Trick Or Treats' later
a shampoo before bed
Oh, my gosh, don't tell Mom
but, you've got a banty-colored head !
Whew ! I think I got my fanny painted,
at least as red as my face
And two applications of Marchand's later
you were no longer a family disgrace !
*Happy Birthday with love, Nedra Lynn*
