DMC: "Mystified Mango" by Michelle Kogan


A fruity girl from Chicago
Loved mango, though not to swallow.
But sweet as she’d be
He wouldn’t love she
Mango rolled over to Margo!

The Chicago girl wouldn’t give up
She thought neglect might fill his cup,
Keeping her distance
Changed his resistance
Mango loves Chicago girl yup!

Marcus Ewert has challenged us to write love poems this month– about relationships that seem unrequited, but which end up being requited after all. Click HERE for more details.

Send your poem to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, October 30th, and one lucky participant will win an autographed copy of his fabulous new picture book:


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this little romp, Michelle. Perhaps sometime I'll introduce you to my friend Passion Fruit. ;)

    1. Thanks Michelle, You've wet my appetite... I would love to meet Passion Fruit. I'm working on a little sketch that I hope to post later today for the poem. Thanks for featuring my ditty today!

  2. Love that you put the slang in, too. Limericks are tough, & these are great!

  3. what a wonderful love story :)

  4. LOL! Nothing like a food love story that ends deliciously!

    1. Thanks Teresa! What we'll do for food (and art) one never knows..

  5. Fun, Michelle K.!

    Michelle B. : I have nominated you for an Infinity Dream Blogger Award. I received it quite a while ago and just had trouble getting around to getting it posted neatly on my site. You may chose to do it or not, certainly!

  6. I love the Limerick form. This is very cute.

    1. Hi Rosi, I love the rhythmic movement and silliness in limericks, thanks!
