Poet's Corner:

(There Was a Little Girl Who Had A Little Curl)


There was a little girl who had a little curl,
Right inna middle of her forehead.
When she was good she was very very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid.

N-um, now, y'see, I, I don't think that rhymes very good. ForeHEAD, horrid. I woulda said forehead-sorehead, or forehead-doorhead, or even forehead-Agnes Morehead, or forehead don't-go-to-the-storehead-

Stop it!
Make me!
You're already made, and what a mess!
Why d'ya always have to be so mean to me?
The little poem that Brak read was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow for his daughter, who HATED having her hair curled! For years Longfellow denied that he was the author, but finally on his deathbed in 1882 he declared, "Awright, awreddy! I wrote the stupid poem! Now turn the television back on and clear outta here!"
Henry Waterbug Longfellow had big feet. Y'know why? 'Cause they were long fellows! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ah ha ha! Oh boy! Get it? Y'get it? Long feet! Heh heh heh heh heh heh. Oh, well, someone told m', told me that one a long time ago. But it still has a wallop! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! (cough)
