Tawdry Tales for Tykes

Chameleon and Monkey
stopped for chamomile tea and coffee
and Chameleon chamomiled past cup and spoon
while Monkey jumped over the moon
so Monkey slowed with opium
and Chameleon tried speed
which you should never do
even in need.

Hey diddle diddle the cat’s now a fiddle
the cartoon is crossing the room
so try to play nice while discussing the price
of slicing the slope of the womb
splicing reel life to the worn
to brighten balloon
over storm.
