Ode to …

In the depths of my desperation to exorcise  this interminable stomach bug from my home, I considered photographing the results and posting them to the blog.  It seems that whenever my children are doing something adorable, they stop as soon as the camera comes out.  Logically, if I tried to take a picture of the vomit, it should magically disappear.  Right?

At that moment, I was willing to try anything!  Fortunately for you, the odor was so overwhelming my reflex to rid us of the stench left me with nothing to photograph.

Instead, I was inspired to share with you my feelings on the last two weeks in verse.  If you are more of a visual person, I suggest having someone read the following aloud so you can properly picture the appropriate illustrations.

(Thank you, Dr. Suess)

I am Alleyoop

I am Alleyoop
Alleyoop am I 

That Alleyoop
That  Alleyoop
He through me for a loop
That Alleyoop

Do you like puke and poop?

I do not like them, 
Alleyoop.
I do not like puke and poop.

Do you like them here or there?

I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like puke and poop.
I do not like them Alleyoop.

Do you like them in your house?
Do you like them on your blouse?

I do not like them in my house.
I do not like them on my blouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like puke and poop.
I do not like them, Alleyoop.

Did you like them yesterday?
Did you like them anyday?

Not yesterday.
Not anyday.
Not in my house.
Not on my blouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like puke and poop.
I do not like them Alleyoop.

You could! You should!
In a car?
Clean them! Clean them! 
Here they are!

I could not , should not in a car.

You will clean them,
You will heave.
You will clean them,
From off your sleeve.

Not off my sleeve.
I could not, should not off my sleeve.
Not in my car. Please take your leave.

Not yesterday.
Not anyday.
Not in my house.
Not on my blouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like puke and poop.
I do not like them Alleyoop.

The bed! The bed!
The bed! The bed!
Could you, should you on the bed?

Not on the bed! Not on my sleeve!
Not in my car! Alleyoop, I must heave.
I could not, should not yesterday.
I could not, should not anyday.
I will not clean them in my house.
I will not clean them from my blouse.
I will not clean them here or there.
I will not clean them anywhere.
I do not like them, Alleyoop.

Say!
From afar?
Could you, should you from afar?

I could not, should not from afar.

Could you, should you on your head?

I could not, should not on my head.
Not from afar.  Not on a bed.
Not in a car.  Not on my sleeve.
I do not like them.  Alleyoop, please leave.
Not in my house.  Not yesterday.
Not on my blouse. Not anyday.
I will not clean them here or there.
I will not clean them anywhere.

You do not like puke and poop?

I do not like them Alleyoop.

Could you, should you in the bath?

I could not, should not in the bath. 

Could you, should you clean the aftermath? 

I could not, should not in the the bath.
I could not, should not clean the aftermath.
I will not clean them from my head. 
I will not clean them from the bed. 
Not from afar. It’s on my sleeve. 
Not in my car.  I need to heave. 
I did not like them yesterday. 
I do not like them anyday. 
I will not clean them from my house.
I will not clean them from my blouse. 
I do not like them here or there. 
I do not like them ANYWHERE!

I do not like puke and poop!

I do not like them, Alleyoop.

You do not like them.
SO you say.
Clean them! Clean them!
Cleaning is the only way.
To send it all away.
Alleyoop!

If it will make you go away.
I will clean them each and every day.

Say!
I cleaned puke and poop!
I did!! I cleaned them, Alleyoop!
And I have cleaned the aftermath!
And I have cleaned them from the bath…
And I have cleaned them from my head.
And I cleaned near and far. And from the bed.
And in the car. And from my sleeve.
And that is why I must heave and heave!

So I have cleaned them yesterday.
And I will clean again today.
And I will clean my entire house.
And I will clean another blouse.
And I will clean here and there.
Say! I will clean EVERYWHERE!

I do so dislike puke and poop!

Screw you!
Screw you!

Alleyoop!
