A silly bit of nonsense :)


The faulty flipper on the Fangadoodle froze
causing a contraptional clunk,
not the common clink,
but a crystal clear controversial clunk...

and then a clank and clatter

All drew still upon the surface
serene sat the sun o’er the sea

The misaligned mechanical monstrosity
had stopped

In a breath
with sight with touch in soul
All did partake of the silence
if just for one brief moment

but once the faulty flipper was fixed
and the Fangadoodle fully fueled
the winding whirring would begin again

And most of All
did forget that moment of clarity
as dummies sprang forth from passenger seats
in crowded carpool lanes providing more
far-flung faulty parts for the Fangadoodle

I love this tongue-in-cheek, double tongue-twisted thing. Awesome!! --Charlie

In the flavour of Dr. Seuss with the flair of Roald Dahl. What a great imagination you have.
I wouldn't call this a 'silly bit of nonsense' since it was birthed in your brilliant mind.

Interesting and full of wonderful flavors to savor, like those mechanical monsters at shows that devour everything in sight...

Be always safe,

Interesting wit my friend and I love the images you have written here, kept thinking of the car in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
