Further Tales of Duke and Tammy.. Five Verses!


So here we are again.  Just about fabulous Friday, and i'm joining Nancy Claeys at her beautiful blog 'A Rural Journal' for her fun meme Random 5 Friday.  It's where we can share 5 random facts about our week, our families, ourselves, our pets.. anything we want!  It can be found here:

This week, i'm doing a random rhyme about my characters.. those mail stealing on the run snails, Duke Larry and Tammy.  :)  In five verses of course.  I hope you enjoy it!


Duke and Tammy on the Lammy Part II  :)

Sweet Tammy now has her license to drive!
So she and Duke won't have to hide out in a dive..
They can get away faster!
And not court disaster..
Agent Snee won't find them, and they'll stay alive!

Until now, they've sought safety in a field of wheat..
But there it's rather dry, and not very sweet.
Snails like it wet..
Plus water's where they met..
A tiny house by a pond really can't be beat!

FBI Agent Rob Snee is tracking them down!
Now that Tammy can drive, they're fast out of town!
Snee looks everywhere..
But he tears out his hair..  :)
And so sadly, all he can do is frown!

Duke and Tammy steal snail bills and pay them off!
They don't steal identities as they hear Snee scoff..
He thinks it's a crime..
And they're covered in slime
Plus Snee's trying to please his Big Boss 'The Hoff'!

I admit i'm rooting for Tammy and Duke Larry!
To me, neither of them is one bit scary!
She has a good heart..
He's good and he's smart!
And they get lots of help from her sister Sherri!

So there it is.  The next installment to come soon.  Have a great weekend, and i'll be back soon.  But first, of course..


I can't get enough of the lovely roses!  Happy Friday, all!

Mary

    1. They grow so well out here that they have a very long season. :). When i was growing up in Maine, my parents tried to grow them, but it was difficult, so there weren't as many around. Here there's such an abundance! :)

  13. I like your limericks, Mary. The story sounds good too if you can take a fumbling FBI agent. I am smiling more about what you said earlier than about these poems though.

    Do you remember earlier saying, "And now for the rhyme i promised. So much for having this out of my system. :)?"
    I am glad that remedy didn't work. I like yours.
