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.

Oh, the sheep made The General so MAAAAADD. ;) What a delightful romp, and hit the topic to boot.
This is just delightful to read. So cute and entertaining. Well done!
Oh dear... "Perhaps he cashed his cow chips in" that is so baaaad. LOL I just loved this. Very, very funny. So well done and on target. Applause!

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.

Oh what fun to read! Excellent rhythm, verse, and characters kept me reading right along to the end!
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!***
