Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

A Poem by Dave Brown



Once upon a time in Sasquatch city

Where the girls just ain’t remotely priddy

Lived scary Mary McGee

High on a large branch, in a fir tree


Trick and treaters were a treat

Hairy Mary just loved to eat

It was from her elevated perch

That she conducted her foul search


But, the threat from Mary has subsided

When with the ground she badly collided

Not only had she tumbled on down

But she was still in her flimsy nightgown


Of Hairy Mary there’s since been no trace

Being too embarrassed to show her face

Wee Saquatchies can again get goodies to eat

With no threat of becoming a Hairy Mary treat

Mary had a little Lamb... whose "tale" was lost from frost bite...
so the teacher let him in and they all had pumpkin pie by the Fire in the
black Pot Belly Stove. You tickle my "fancy" Dave and you raise an eye brow...
like a Jersey Cow... I take a Bow. generously, Pat

This comes across as a struggle between Edgar Allan Poe and Dr. Suess. In the end, I believe Suess prevails.

hhhhahaha thank YOU and I promise with the Halloween's Spirit that I did not cheat.
That's what this Halloween season has been missing . . . a farfetched Sasquatch tale from the great Sasquatch-enator himself! I love how you seem to be giving a big whompo nod to the "Wicked Mary" theme we've fully diced up between us. I also love how you go with a strong female Sasquatch, possibly in protest for all my poems portraying the Sasquatch male as being hopeless & wimpy. All in all, this wins you a few serves in our on-going Halloween volley (((HUGS)))
