There are so many monsters dancing everywhere.
Some are purple like those peacocks bopping over there.
Some are people like those penguins who do not dance right.
Every eater will get hungry so stay out of sight.
Linked to dVerse Poetics hosted by Lillian with a prompt to pick a song that hit number one on the year you were born, or five to ten years after you were born, and incorporate that song title into a poem. The song I picked was Sheb Wooley’s number one hit from the summer of 1958, “Purple People Eater”. I was
eight seven at the time this hit number one, so you can do the math.
I also linked this to NaPoWriMo2017 Day Eleven.
Here is a recent version of the song since the lyrics are clearer.
