There Once Was...

By: Hope Gardner

There once was a girl from Kentucky,
she always won at games
but, all the same she had a pet gerbil
named “Unlucky.”

There once was a boy from Maine,
but he dreamed of living in Spain,
And try as he might he could never find
the right ticket as he boarded the plane.

There once was a woman from Minnesota,
her father Lived in South Dakota,
She visited him yearly
‘Cause she loved him dearly
And her favorite food was bologna.

There once was a man from Tennessee,
When he went shopping he would buy a new
golf tree, his wife told him “Stop it!”
But he couldn’t just drop it
And in the end he had one hundred and three.
