A Single Wish -- a poem about wishing

Ahh, the first Poetry Friday of National Poetry Month is here (and Kelly has collected the links here!). I hope you're joining in the poetic fray. As for me, I offer up A Single Wish for you all.


A SINGLE WISH
by
Gregory K.

If you could have a single wish
And you knew that your wish would come true...
Would you use it for riches,
Or wish for more wishes,
Or cures for diseases you knew?

Well, I was given a single wish,
And I knew what I wanted, oh, please!
Now either I mumbled...
Or the wish-granter stumbled...
But anyone want some whirled peas?


(I'm posting an original poem-a-day through April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and there are lots of others, because poetry is NOT just for April) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".)

Sung to the tune of Jan Brady to Marsha:
"Scrotum, Scrotum, Scrotum"

ok, that's not a poem.
Here's one I illustrated for the
Brooklyn Poet Laureate, Norman Rosten:

A skycraper is a place
for a star to rest,
to look it's best,
or maybe to take a nap

Here's my attempt (in following with the theme of whirled peas):

Whirled peas,
Needed please.
Grill big cheese,
Give us ease.
Garden some,
Remove a Bush.
Give the peas
a great big push.
