In my backyard

In my backyard
I found a tart.

Says Jay, “Pray tell,
you might as well,

what will you do with it?”
“Whip cream, you nit,

put it on top
and eat the slop.”

Written for Sunday Scribblings and My Backyard, this should easily compete with the silliest of Mother Goose.

I would not eat a tart found on the ground in my backyard, but to each his own. This is a cute ditty!
