Poetic improv from the mischief makers

A new feature at The Waxing Moon: guest poetry! They said it, I wrote it down.... seriously, their play wasn't nearly as violent as it sounds. No tears were shed in the making of this poem.

poetic improv from the mischief makers

this is the Ursie
who was crawling on the floor

this is the brother
who sat on her back
as she was crawling on the floor

this is the brother
who sat on her back
and gave her bottom a good hard smack
as she was crawling on the floor

this is the brother
who knocked her down
and made her hair into a crown
and sat on her back
and gave her bottom a good hard smack
as she was crawling on the floor

this is the brother
who dumped her on the couch
and she didn’t even say ouch
who knocked her down
and made her hair into a crown
and sat on her back
and gave her bottom a good hard smack
as she was crawling on the floor
