Soup Soup Beautiful Soup-Magpie Tales 106



Soup soup beautiful soup
Eat it with a spoon
Eat it with a scoop
Eat it with noodles
Share it with poodles
Empty up that can
Paint it like a man
That clever man Andy
He was so handy
With paint and brush
There was no rush
Who would have thought
That a can bought
Could bring such fame
To the Campbell name

Eric Alders Monday Photo Prompt 2/20/2012






There once was a guy named Aussie
Whose wife was horribly bossy
He went off on a toot
Didn't give a ripping hoot
And now he's hooked on the Fostee
~~~~~~~~~

This is terribly silly and it's all Eric's faulty!

Don't close your heart
Tumultous hearts pulsing
Open says me

Magpie 104-Emancipation




Countries built
Upon the back of slavery
Slow to repair

Magpie 103 or Ode to Jello




My heart wiggles
My tongue jiggles the taste
Of tangy berries

Skillful hands
Heartfelt hands helping to heal
Broken hearts
