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!

Upon the back of slavery

My tongue jiggles the taste
Of tangy berries

Broken hearts
