I’m featuring silly limericks today for Poetry Friday. I heard through the grapevine that July 14th is National Macaroni and Cheese Day. Tabatha Yeatts, at The Opposite of Indifference, our Poetry Friday host extraordinaire put out a call for Mac and Cheese poems, and of course I thought of limericks. Hope you have fun, and do visit Tabatha Yeatts: The Opposite of Indifference for more Poetry Friday poems (and maybe silly antics).
MACARONI AND CHEWY CHEESE
Uuuh, said Macaroni, where’s Chewy Cheese?
Come out wherrrrrevvver you are, they’re here, pleeeese!
Ants are marching two by two–
They’re coming after me and you!
Oooooh Noooo, don’t sneeze they’ll find us with such ease.
Quick Cheese, let’s slide behind this sun screen spray,
We’ll fool them, deter them, keep’m far away.
They’re marching to the jello,
You lucky, ducky fellow.
I’m lucky you’ll stick with me and not stray.
Ooopsss, they’re circling back, they smell our tracks,
Quick Cheese strew out your marshmallows in stacks!
That’s sure to stop’em right there
Awww Cheesy your just to fair.
Best bid farewell Cheese, for we’re there next snacks . . .

PASTA, PASTA, EVERYWHERE
Oh, vermicelli, rigatoni!
Lost on a sea of minestrone.
The sea beneath my feet,
