How Many Things Can You Put in Spaghetti?

by Kristyn Crow


Oh how many things can you put in spaghetti--
like some pasta
and some spices
and your little brother’s teddy?

Could you add some zesty sauce
with some bits of dental floss
then your father’s old shoelaces
and some yarn your kitty chases
rubber toys your puppy plays with
silly-string your sister sprays with
paper scraps you like to glue on
bubble gum you love to chew on
then some playdough, green, that glows
and the junk between your toes?

Oh how many things can you put in spaghetti--
like some greasy pencil shavings
twenty pennies from your savings
extra grass from papa’s clippings
with a dash of haircut snippings
then add meatballs, just for thrills
and your granny's daffodils?

Oh how many things can you put in spaghetti--
are you ready?
Get set!

Splosh! Splat!
EEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


Ah-hem.

I did NOT mean me.











Just goofing around. Happy Monday! (BTW...no, no, no...this is not the manuscript I was referring to last post. Not enough story there, you know.)
