Gramma teases
"Little Lonnie Laddie" by JLR
Little Lonnie laddie
sat at the lighted table
pushing along a limp noodle
waiting for his mom to serve
apple strudel.

His gramma's frown
made her look like a greyhound
especially with her white-hair bound
telling little Lonnie laddie his limp
noodle was strudel.

His mother did make a mighty sigh
as she looked her mother in the eye
and said, "Lonnie knows the difference
between limp noodles and strudel."

Gramma winked and nodded her head
and said," yes he does,"
and she up and walked away
going staight to bed.

While, little Lonnie laddie, was
served hot apple strudel on top
of his limp noodle.
