Utterly Frivolous

Because I fell down a hole and this is my attempt to climb out.

There was a young squirrel named X
Whose thighs were like shiny round eggs
She gave them a shake
Then tripped on a rake
And now she's got yolk on her legs.

If pennies were pinnies
And pinnies were pennies
Then bakers would walk with a clank.
But plentiful piggies
With coins in their middles
Would laugh as they skipped to the bank.
And that being so
If a sow had to go
For a date with a man making bread
She'd raise her head high
- not a word of a lie -
Knowing well that her piglets were fed.

I haven't got a bucket
Or a picket in my pocket
And I divvn't have a hope of making sense.
But at least I'll have a sprocket
And a pippet on a poppet
When I tip it on the Tipperary fence.

I feel a little better now.

Saw you on Bete's...

Hilarious post! Had to read that out loud with an English accent...which is really absurd since I am a Chilean-American chick...take care!

Thankyou! :O)

I'm very excited about having another commenter actually, so I feel I should do more than just say thankyou. Like, say "Hello" and "Welcome" and "Would you like a cup of coffee?"

Some Chilean Woman said...

You're welcome! I'll be visiting often...

Question...why the Beleaguered Squirrel name? Cracks me up!

Beleaguered Squirrel said...

It's a bit of a convoluted story. I started the blog cos I was fed up about something in particular and wanted somewhere to vent about it. It was something to do with my job. I'll probably come clean at some point but at the moment I'm being coy, so let's just say I'm a Thingummy. So the blog was called Beleaguered Thingummy. But then I realised it wasn't such a good idea to blog about this thing I was fed up about, not even anonymously, so I edited all the relevant posts and decided I couldn't even call the blog Beleaguered Thingummy, so picked something at random to replace the Thingummy... and decided on Squirrel.

So now it makes very little sense at all but has coincidentally ended up rather a nice title. So I'm keeping it.

And you're thoroughly confused and none the wiser at all, right? Sorry about that!

Not confused at all, it makes sense. Plus squirrels are #2 on my list of favorite animals, pigs being #1. Definitely keep the Squirrel.

Yay! And OK. I will.
