About the Poem

A whimsical poem from the upcoming book, "The Prince of Nonsense" due out next year, this poem is in the tradition of "Peter Piper Picked A Pepper. " It plays around with the "P" sound & is a fun tongue twister for kids of all ages. In the tradition of Dr. Seuss & my recently departed idol Mr. Shell Silverstein.


Penny the Peppermint Poodle

And Perry the Purple Peacock,

Walked with a pair of parasols

To play in the park down the block.

They packed a picnic with a peach

A pear, a prune and a pickle.

There was a piece of pie for each

And a piece of pumpernickel.

Their pink pal Pete the Parakeet

Prepared pizza and plum strudel,

For Perry the Purple Peacock

And Penny the Peppermint Poodle.
