Did you ever get something meaningless or silly stuck in your head that you just couldn't shake? It seems like it might just drive you mad, doesn't it!





What are these words I’ve said

They’ve got my brain all in a lock

‘N keep messin’ with my head


They spurt out when I try to speak

And wake me from my sleep

They roar at me from rushing creek

‘N from ‘neath the laundry heap


These words inside my head ingrain

As they refuse to leave my thoughts

The verbiage seems to be inane

Like that of infant-tots


Seems no matter what I try to do

Or write or try to say

These silly mixed up words of few

Come quickly into play



Has anyone a clue

Their meaning or the way to block

These words from thoughts anew

Could not resist the title and I have to say "ying tong yiddle - i - po"* Look, you've got me at it now.
This was good fun.
*The ying tong song was recorded by The Goons, Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Seacome in the 1950s.

Hi Sherry,
HAAA...I love this...
What ever it means,
it must be pretty good, since it keeps hanging

Sometimes I will go
through that, with a
silly song...Like
"Row row row your boat
gently down the stream" Oh goodness,
Now you reminded me
of that silly old song...hehehe

Trixie :)

Yes dear Sherry sometimes my muse flips her wig and then I am bombarded with all kinds of repetitious thoughts just like these. They only make sense when she slaps me on my bald head and says: "no no no no no." Right Trixie? Such a cute poem. Bill
