much ado times two

miniature marshmallows
make much ado of nothing
but not enough of anything
one could consider fattening

if taken in small doses
˜
a whole bunch of swallows on wires outside a windowconversely,
mini barn swallows
make much ado
of everything
and way too much
of noisiness
for helen’s
hoity-toityiness
which makes
her think
to hell
with symbiosis
˜
so helen got
her bb gun
sent those
swallows
on the run
for seconds there
the view out here was loco
now she’s back to sipping her hot cocoa

  1. This is not only very well done and very fun to read it’s also very fun to read aloud. There’s playfulness and a variety of sounds and noises that it’s just impossible to read out loud and not smile!
