100% Silliness

Oh, what a wonderful

world we weave

when words we practice

to receive

roll trippingly, skippingly

off the tongue

a brouhaha of floofy fun

like

borked

and

spork

and

gobbledygook

and

collywobbles

and

nincompoop.

Croon cockamamie

cattywampus

jackanapes

who cause a

rumpus;

while hootenanny

and hocus pocus

cause

discombobulated

focus.

It’s raining words,

grab your bumbershoot,

then dance the samba-mamba

in your zippidy-doo-Zoot suit.

You can call me a pettifogger,

but I’ll gesticulate a little longer,

’cuz compared to

kerfuffle

skedaddle

klutz

lollygag

regular words are just

such a drag.

Here’s a doozy

that’s lots of fun:

batrachomyomachy.

Oh, shenanigans!

Don’t like that one?

Save it for later?

Shall I write in a

hemidemisemiquaver?

Okay, this

slangwhanger’s

almost through

with her flibbertigibbet

wordle stew.

But I’m hungry for

widdershins wordplay…

Aren’t you?

    De… that was “floofy fun” reminded me of Mary Poppins for a wee bit and then the Fancy Nancy children’s books series. Ermmmm, are any of those scrabble words ? 🙂
