Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 898 (The Unexpected Mardi Gras Bead)


 

I saw Granny standing on the side, of the road-

She was at the Mardi Gras parade, and looking to get her a load.

.

The beads were so beautiful, and she did give her best try-

But, for some reason or another, she didn’t get any beads yet,

and didn’t know why.

.

She hollered ‘throw me somethin’ mister’, and that did no good-

She put up her hands, as everyone, at the parade should.

.

She finally gave up and figured that in regards, to any beads,

she would get none-

For she hadn’t acquired one yet, and the parade was about done.

.

She raised her hand up to scratch her head, and out of nowhere-

A gorgeous gold, purple, and green bead wrapped around her pinkie,

right in the midst, of her hair.

.

Granny had finally gotten what she had came for, and she was

so proud-

As she wore her bead, in the midst, of the Mardi Gras crowd.

.

I saw Granny standing on the side, of the road-

She was at the Mardi Gras parade, and looking to get her a load.
