E is for…Everything (#AtoZ)

Here is my latest post for the #AtoZChallenge for April 2022. My title and theme for this challenge is “Seriously Silly Poetry” in recognition of April being poetry month and also wanting to do something fun and playful to celebrate spring. I hope you enjoy this series.


“Everything is great. Everything is grand. We’ve got the whole wide world in the palm of our hand.

“Life’s a Happy Song” — The Muppets

Everything

by Monty Vern

Everything is great. Everything is grand.
Even the kitchen sink is part of this jam band.
With a clang and a bang let’s wake up this sleepy land.

Take off your slippers and boots, it’s time for some hoots.
Holler and dance; no worries; no whoops.
Let’s get mom and dad jumping through hoops.

Build a sand castle in the living room.
Get on up and ride the vacuum.
Now mom and dad are chasing you room to room!

Forget about after-snack naps
Turn on all the water taps
Mom and dad will be swimming laps and laps!

Everything is great. Everything is grand.
There’ll be no nos, nothing is banned.
You’ve got your parents in the palm of your hand.


Be well,

Monty

      However If the kids DO take these words literally I would prescribe my “D is for Don’t Worry” poem. 😂
