An Act of Doggerel

In the fruit bowl, in the kitchen
Lay a sticky pool of slime.
It once was a healthy snack - that
Dreadful, sorry clementine ... .

Inspired by my afternoon snack, and my brother-in-law, who was trying to write something on this theme ... .

ROTFL! Very cute, and clever. Doggerel is good. A lost art.

I'm going to use that tonight when I get home and my roommate and I clean the fridge. I noticed a couple of scary clementines in our crisper drawer, but was waiting for trash night. ;)

Yeah, bro-in-law came up with the "sticky pool of slime" and the re-punctuation of the final line ... I used to write little doggerel parodies a lot.

My former house mate and still-best friend K has somewhere a hilarious and ancient postcard captioned "Guess what's in the refrigerator?!" It shows a horrified-looking woman staring at an open fridge with gnarly-looking things in it, helpfully labelled "Liquid lettuce," "potatoes with antlers," etc.
