What's in YOUR navel?




In the middle of the center
of the circle of his wiggle,
was the button of his belly
and the reason for his giggle.

When the tippit of his tickle
of his finger with a squiggle,
touched his tummy full of jelly,
just enough to make it wiggle.

But the jiggle woke a lintle
from the fuzzy of its nestle.
Peeking out, it shook its woolies,
at the keeper of its vessel.

"Have you no consideration
for the nappers in your nichle?
Cut it out, or do it lestle.
Else I'll make your middle itchle!"

masterpiece of doggerelism

Wild imagination as usual Cat. I think I'll really dig in and clean my own nichle in the shower later, I don't no purple lintle rising up and sassing me.

superb stuff.

andrea said...

Hilarious. Now *that's* an original take on belly button lint and the poem is too clever. (And I'm glad to see there's someone almost as late for IF as me!)

Catnapping said...

Hee heeeee. Thank you guys. I almost didn't post my ditty. I was scared no one would like it.

Simply Delightful.

I am loving this so much. Great poem. Fun illustration and very creative representation of belly button lint.

Never hesitate to post 'em
Even if you think we'll roast 'em
Cos the sluggish brains among us
Need relief from mental fungus
And your jelly bellied jiggle's
Guaranteed to raise a giggle.

Thanks for visiting!

Fantastic post. So, that's who's making all that noise. I thought it was my stomach...

Wonderfully hilarious! And I’m too old and it’s too late at night for me to be giggling as I am.

I might have nightmares about jiggles waking lintles! Excellent Catnapping, you're not a booby-breasted Booby after all ;)

I just peed my pants! This ditty would be a huge hit read to a roomful of little ones. The laughter would be uproarious! (sp?) I love the lint figure too! I guess that's been collecting up for a while. Eeks! Did you know that belly-button lint was also called a tudball? I like your word better! Awesome illo too with the monster pedi :)

tsduff said...

Your creativity spillith over :-) Love it~

David Rochester said...

This was really very funny ... I kind of misread it the first time with a sinister Kinsey-esque subtext, but that's far more indicative of my warped mind than anything else.

ValGalArt said...

haha i'm thoroughly delighted!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

How cute, adorable, fun, and well -done! :-D

Meg said...

I disagree with Ellis Nadler when he referred to this as doggerel. In spirit, it may seem so, but in truth, it's quite the exercise in linguistic play. A fun read and well written.
