DMC: Sandy Lowe's picture book potluck

There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed . . .
Things from my refrigerator.
Albert Allen’s alligator.

Mr. Tobin’s fresh grown squash.
Edamame succotash.

Bacon, sausage, juicy steak,
Pudding, pies, and birthday cake.

All my precious picture books!
And all the world's untasty crooks.

Barking dogs and cozy cats,
Cowboy boots and tall straw hats.

And to slow that pony down,
A pony-riding circus clown.

Penny Parker Klostermann has challenged us to write one to four couplets following her example– things we might feed a dragon to avoid being swallowed ourselves.  Click HERE for more details.

Send your couplets to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a whopper of a cumulative poem featured at our wrap-up celebration on Friday, August 28th.  One lucky participant will win a personalized copy of Penny's deliciously funny debut picture book:


  1. I'm sorry you've had to sacrifice your library, Sandy. I eat up picture books too, but not like this! Do the pages count as a source of fiber? I wonder....

  2. Oh my! Well at least he swallowed crooks along with the books :D

    Cute couplets, Sandy!!!
