POPPY CAPSLOCK

POPPY CAPSLOCK

Was a sweet little girl

But had a voice like a thousand fog horns

And from the day she was born

When she opened her face

Every word she would speak

Would be uppercase

 

If you could have seen

Her speech inside of a bubble

The words would have been bold

And the font size 12 doubled

 

POPPY CAPSLOCK

Would hear people moaning

Wherever she went - east, west, north or south

About the volume of her megaphone mouth

Though the loud little miss

Didn't know any better

Because her birth certificate was typed

In capital letters

 

Thankfully when she grew up

Fate gave her a gift

Of a husband who kept her quiet

And his name - Perez Shift.
