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.
