PrompTuesday #1

A blog I read (and ENJOY!) SanDiegoMomma has come up with PrompTuesdays. She puts out writing prompts, and we try to do them. My first isn't so hot, but I'll keep trying!

Today was a Nonsense Poem. I, however, am not very good at nonsense of the nonsensical kind. Dr. Suess has not worries of competition from me. But, here is what I got in my 10 minutes.

Two dogs went for a walk one day.
Over the hills and far away.

On their way they met a mole.
A mole wearing a hat and digging a hole.

They helped that mole dig his hole
and into the ground the went.
Dug and Dug and Dug did they
Until they were mostly spent.

Then they heard their owner call.
Ruckles Shuckles, Let's play ball.

So, the dogs went home as fast as they could.
Running fater than they probably should.

Then they tripped on a truck.
And the day was over. They were stuck.

Not too bad! :0) I especially like the Ruckles, Shuckles part. I'll have to hop on over to her blog to check out this whole Prompt thing. :0)

Heck, that's better than I could do, especially in ten minutes. I might have got the first few lines done. :)
