It was a cool night in Congo
so far away from Chicago
and nightclub Whiskey Agogo
I hear distant beat on the bongo
and voices in local lingo
Starry sky, and drum sounds like Ringo
Ccould just picture Beatles logo
in a thick thicket of Mango
There are no flights to Durango
nor a steamship to Tobago
No rescuers to spot you--bingo!
Got ATM, no Wells Fargo
No way to pay my way to Togo
witout our broken down Yugo
Can't hop far on stick for pogo
We were stuck-- all systems: No Go
I saw my friend not long ago
he can help, His name is Hugo
He can send the much needed cargo
Glad to help, I could do the"Go-go"
Can anyone resue us from the jungle, in same or different rhyme? - Hermie
Couldn't use "leggo my Eggo". = Karl
This is really cute and inventive!
mmmmm that "go" word sure does go a long way... lol. 'a'
'a' -- "go" went a goodly distance, until the Yugo car broke down. How to get parts from Yugoslavia?! -- Marty
lol .. this is cute!!! i like it!!! Drm
:-):-) Marty, hope that will help the Togo or Yugo, don't know how that space got in there though. (grin) 'a'
'a' -- First spark of hope, amigo! -- Marty
Mind if I ask what inspired this? It is so clever and I would never have thought of it, just wondered what made you think of it. Fun to access people's thought processes somtimes if they will allow you.
#9 commenter ~ Speaking for myself (first few lines), I tried a limerick like: 'there was a man from Congo', but couldn't produce a good limerick . 'Congo' kept haunting me, so I wrote the initial lines for fun. The others did a good job after that. ~ Hermie
Repetitive - Ill give it that. It hammers a point into my consciousness like a power driver - although Im not sure of exactly what the point is. SAMHAIN357@hotmail
What's the point of Shakespeare's soliloquy:"to be or not to be"? It's creative emphasis, to those who appreciate that type of poetry, and 'repetetive' to those who don't. To each his own; not worth proslytising on this point. -_ Gordie
To go or not to go,
Tis said that is the question. cem
I'll stay at this site. = Milo
