More Poetry:


I've never seen a purple cow-

I hope I never see one.


But I can tell you here and now:

I'd rather see then be one.


I just asked my Grandma what her favorite quote was and this is what I got! I really do love that poem- I think I've had it memorized since I can talk.

that is a fun one! Some of the shortest most absurd poetry is also the most catchy...you just can't forget it. Which makes it awesome in my opinion! I've never minded having songs or poetry stuck in my head.

That has a good ring to it. It made me smile and laugh! :D

Well, to be honest, this quote makes perfect sense to me! :P

I agree with MoonShaw!

So I adore poetry responses (whether from other poets, or the original author himself). Which makes G.B.'s PURPLE COW: SUITE so wunderbar:

Ah, Yes! I Wrote the "Purple Cow" -
I'm Sorry, now, I Wrote it!
But I can Tell you Anyhow,
I'll Kill you if you Quote it!
