Verification Poem

I'm very very late to catch the poetry bus this time, n I'm not sure a ticket is still available for me!
The poetry bus, started by TotalFeckinEejit, driven by the ever-intelligent sciencegirl NanU, wants us to write a poem on:
We are all familiar with those wiggly almost-words used to verify that a blogger leaving a comment is in fact an actual blogger and not a machine. Yes. Those words are your mission. Collect them this week. Pick your favorite, or several, and include it/them in your poem.
Verification words that I have used are: Mupin, Taire, Spome, haily.
Here goes my poem:

Toddler Bites
That l’il toddler next door
Has a funny little lingo
Uttering his first-words
is the mighty flamingo .

Wants’ a sugary Mupin(muffin)
dipped in sweet jammy
wrinkles his bunny-nose
when it gets all clammy .

Sitting on the Taire(Stair)
on my corbie-step
babbles out my name
and I know a prank is in prep.

Cereal in his Spome(Spoon)
Lobs them on floor
Cajoles his mamma
with a giggly implore.

Sleeps at the tick of nine
Tucked with a haily(hairy) bear
To a bed-time story
of a wary mare.

Dreams of a housie-mousey
wakes with a weepy uproar
such an innocent pirate
is the l’il toddler next door

Hey, this was fun! Great idea to use the words as a little kid's first words and nicely told.

Lovely! And I am going to teach some of the stanzas to my niece. :)

Erratic Thoughts said...

@ ~G Thanks for dropping by.Nieces and Nephews are adorable little fellas :)

~G said...

Totally. Especially when they learn to say your name of address you with a relation. Mine says "Maa-sheeee" (She still hasnt got the 'U' vocal right) in such a cute tone, that I melt on the spot.

Hahaha...So true, they are so innocent and sweet.
When my nephew calls me "Buaaaa" i become totally helpless and I am at his beck n call..Lol! :D
