Overtaken

"Oh bother said the house
I've been overtaken by a louse"
Virginia is such a pest-
and she's really quite absurd
If only she would grew feathers 
I could fly like a bird

Very sing-song, Kathe... I like it!

Thanks for playing M.M.P.P. this week!

That house looks like a giant Chia pet!

I once rented a house covered in ivy. Two many spiders to count. Didn't stay long.

Yikes, I wouldn't like that one bit. Too scary what would be living in all the jungle.

Very well done for the prompt though. You do these so very well.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I think that's so neat! I wonder what it looks like from inside?

Looks like that poor little building is being overtaken with Kudzu. Cute little poem.

It almost sounds like something the House at Pooh Corner would say, if this happened to it!
