Hey-yo Daddy-o
I'm as fast as fast can go
Ginger slip and taunting air
Spicy bounding twirling dare
Hill and dale and in between
Tagging chasing vanilla cream
Foxy loxy's so darned clever
Thinks to eat me by the river
Upside down and inside out
Foaming pouting fuzzy snout
I'm as fast as fast can go
You can't catch me; don't you know?
My humorous little take on the old Gingerbread Man poem. I read this aloud in a very paced but quick rhythm. This is another old poem from 2003 (as I trudge through my old files) that I've edited and reworked a bit to share here.

I did an aloud reading of this one on YouTube as well.

I see what you mean about this being fun to read/say :D

For one, the wording is just great. And I don't know anything about poems, but the amount of beats, or I guess syllables, per line just harmonizes and makes the whole thing come together smoothly.

I can imagine a cheetah saying this to a hunter. It's very fun to read!
