Spoonerism Pantoum

Spoonerism Pantoum 

taking a family Thanksgiving walk

on the Johnson Funny Farm

holes everywhere in the tufted ground 

“What are they? They’re everywhere!”

on the Johnson Funny Farm

pine straw sticking up like golf divots 

“What are they? They’re everywhere!”

Briar confessed: “We have aardvarks”

pine straw sticking up like golf divots 

like a foursome gone club-crazy

Briar confessed: “We have aardvarks”

he mixes up his words sometimes 

like a foursome gone club-crazy

holes everywhere in the tufted ground 

he confused aardvarks with armadillos 

taking a family Thanksgiving walk

  1. One: I adore the pantoum form! It invites play, as you've magnificently illustrated here. Two: Your wit and wordcraft are as shining and sharp as ever! I think – no, I KNOW – I would love the Johnson Funny Farm and even the aardvarks – er, armadillos. (Here in NC we just got possums).
