A Little Skittle Spittle!

Can you say that three times fast without putting your tongue in a cast? Is there even a cast for a tongue? Probably about as likely as popping a lung. Anyway, away we stroll. Did you know a skittle can please a troll?

Today you learn a skill,
That few truly know.
So just stand still,
And listen to my flow.

Give a troll a little,
Give a troll a lot.
As long as it's a skittle,
And nothing pokadot.

No, not peanut brittle.
No, not hot sauce.
If you want an acquittal,
Forget the reindeer moss.

It doesn't matter how.
It doesn't matter who.
No milk from a cow,
It looks too much like glue.

Lose the fancy bag,
Lose the clever grin.
He might start to gag,
When you bring the skittles in.

You need to color code,
You need to keep track,
Take an extra load,
Hide them behind your back.

Put them in his hand,
Put them in his shoe,
Forget nose land,
You'll just make him go achoo.

What? I did not finish it at my hut? Do I look like a dumb mutt? Want to know the end have to buy and hit send. So if a troll every comes near you, you at least know what to do. Feed it a skittle to stop its sass. No need to thank my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  33. Thanks for the tease. You are probably laughing with squees. A little Skittle trap can catch you quite a chap. And if you're OCD, you can divide your Skittles into rows of three. Or color-code them just for fun. Have to arrange the whole bag before you're done.
