The Sniffle -- Ogden Nash

Guest poem submitted by Anustup Datta:
(Poem #625) The Sniffle
 In spite of her sniffle
 Isabel's chiffle.
 Some girls with a sniffle
 Would be weepy and tiffle;
 They would look awful,
 Like a rained-on waffle,
 But Isabel's chiffle
 In spite of her sniffle.
 Her nose is more red
 With a cold in her head,
 But then, to be sure,
 Her eyes are bluer.
 Some girls with a snuffle,
 Their tempers are uffle.
 But when Isabel's snivelly
 She's snivelly civilly,
 And when she's snuffly
 She's perfectly luffly.
-- Ogden Nash
There's a nasty little bug going round Bangalore and pretty wisps of lace
and cambric are everywhere ("A handkerchief, my dear, is a tissue that you
don't throw away."). If all the pretty young things sniffling around the
city were laid end-to-end, I (and Dorothy parker) wouldn't be a bit
surprised. This is a dedication to all the colds-in-the-head this flu
season, in Beantown and elsewhere.

Alert Minstrels readers will remember another Ogden Nash gem on the common
cold (Poem no. 325) - this is more whimsical, and even more delightfully,
utterly Nash-esque (Nash-ian? Nash-istic?).

What do you think about my version?

I'm learning to say thank you.
And I'm learning to say please.
And I'm learning to use Kleenex,
Not my sweater, when I sneeze.
And I'm learning not to dribble.
And I'm learning not to slurp.

I did this poem when I was a little child... 23jj

I think this poem is one of the best I've read because it has a perfect rhyme, sometimes we can read poems so those ones don't have the rhyme The Sniffle has.m10m

I do not drop many remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here "The Sniffle -- Ogden Nash".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks look like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
