Very clever. To be honest, I read yours to see if anyone was coming near close my way to read mine, but I see your little gem and mine are as unvisited (new word, like it??) as the old general. Yours is sheer brilliance, with no comments, so that must mean that I can apply the same assumption to mine :D

I Loooooove this! What an imagination and a play on words! This is super-duper...and right on topic. I'm still laughing! Great job.
Clever! Love the rhyme. Still chuckling, too. Thumbs up.

Superb! I love it!
So entertaining! This is a delight.
How I love play on words, and how wonderfully you "played." This is so creative and clever--and so "enjoy-able" to read. Great job.

What a complete RIOT! I'm sure this was loads of fun to write - and some of those were BAAAAAAAAAAD (in a good way, of course!). Absolutely delightful and wonderfully crafted.

Absolutely incredible, I'm becoming more of a poetry fan since joining FW. GREAT JOB!! This begs to be published!
Your poem made me laugh -such images you've etched in my memory. Love the men in white coats and "he bought the farm." Great stuff!
This was a fun read. Enjoyed the allusion and word play.
Hooray and congratulations! I knew this one was something extra special!

ROFL! So glad I got to read this one. I loved the verse with the people in white who came to cart him off. The title is so funny...north, south tale. Nicely done!

***Congrats!***
