She sells

Updated on March 27, 2016

She do?


She sells
by the she sore
cold wet
wave roar

Fishies swim
up 'n back
fly fast
(shark attack)

She sells
she deep
Cool – wet
nice sleep

Wave out – wave in
hide clams no doubt
grit grime
'round about

She sells
watches me
much good sleep
hot I be

Drink cup
nice cold drink
head all fire
what I think

She sells
by the she sore
hot hot sun
not less more

Time for wake
sun go 'way
She sells
be done for day

      Howdy Jamie (jhamann) -

      The dumber the poem, the wider the smile. I overheard a hippo tell that to a gnu one time. Both of them were fresh out of the animal psycho ward, but neither of them was carrying an assault gun at the moment, so I got close enough to hear the both of 'em. Crazy place, that Antarctica...

      AND - just for you I will do a "share" on one of those old dumb poem collections. They are like me, meaning that they may be old but they are available.

      Hi Jeffy (kingkos) -

      I am happy that you are happy. That's two of us. No, wait one minute. There must be more than just the two of us being happy. Oh well, maybe tomorrow...

      Have fun today, Jeffy.

      Thanks for the votes and for the sharing. Your nice hubs gave me quite a workout, too. No oceans up where you live, but the sun gets hot where you live, too, right?

      Hello Justin (PDXKaraokeGuy ) -

      Good of you to tell me that you got some enjoyment out of "Cat." Got another one over here named "Dog" for short. The whole name is "War Dog." Cat only comes over when Dog is not in the yard. Fun to watch - sort of like your hubs. :-)

      Mary (tillsontitan) - My God ! There went the toes. The left knee just blew off. It is pure hell to explode like this. It must be all that doggone writing stuff. Call the fire department - no - the army - no - the Girl Scouts - anybody. Ouch, ouch, ouch.

      teaches12345 - Yes indeed. That hot old sun is blasting the poor lady as she sits there thinking those wierd thoughts. Too much heat will do it to a person, won't it? :-)

      Good Doctor bj - I enjoyed your comment here immensely. Why? Because it was in the way of making an excuse for me that I had not yet thought of myself. :-)

      You have made a new adventure from the old version on this. Love the words and photo match. I can just picture this in my mind too.

      This reads like native island lingo, Gus, but don't ask me which tribe.

      Fun to read, I kid you not,

      Water's cool and sun is hot.

      Caught a fish, prepare the pot.

      End of poem, that's all I got.

      Hi Mary (tillsontitan) -

      As to that originality stuff, I can only say that I tried to find some crazy person whose work I could copy, but the search was without success - so I keyboarded all of this nonsense on my own.

      Even so, I am pleased that you enjoyed the thing. If I were you, though, I might try to be really careful about admitting it. :-)

      Gus :-)))

      I can only agree with everyone else...but would like to add your originality shines through with every word.

      Voted up and funny.

      Howdy Pamela (Pamela Kinnaird W) - The inspiration came from two sources - one of those licorice candy twisties and several hours in the hot sun. (You just never know when and from where it'll hit you.)

      "KKG" (KoffeeKlatchGals) - A creative mind? You should watch me as I roll out those long, skinny play-dough worms. Made one in technicolor last week that folks are still marveling over. :-)

      "Play" is the operative word, KKG. Without "play" the rest is not worth talking about, right?

      Gus :-)))

      Good day, Bronwen (BlossomSB) - I would likely expect no less than a "what fun" from a good writer who resides in a huge place surrounded by the waters. You have the additional pleasure of living in a place named after a most renowned lady, a whole age of our world being named after her at that.

      One of these days I intend to try following after your successful footsteps into the world of children's books. I shall await my entry into a second (or later) childhood such that the attempt might possibly succeed. :-)

      Hey - I am pleased that you enjoyed this wacky (pidgin-tongued) tale. It was fun to put together even though it made little sense.

      Gus :-)))

      Hi rosemay50 -

      Ol Sol does more than just light up each day, right? I am not sure if the sun got to me or if it could have been that chocolate pudding cake that did its own form of persuasion. Sometimes it is the mystery of things causatious that makes for the most fun.

      With that - have lots of fun today...

      Gus :-)))

      Superb twist on the word and meaning "Seashells".

      Another fine poem with a bit of humor sprinkled into a rhyme I learned from my childhood.

      Voting up and happy to be following you.
