Today is the penultimate post for the A to Z Challenge. Catch up on past posts of my two-pronged theme or enjoy today’s here –
Yankee Doodle Alphabet
This book awoke a patriotic pride in me. Each page talks about a person, place, or event that contributed to the start of The United States of America. It helped me remember why I love this country.
I went and listened to the song Yankee Doodle, and, knowing the true implications of the song, I felt kind of sad that it has been reduced to a nursery rhyme.
Yes, it’s true.
Y shares a page with X and Z.
But Y is not all, “Yippy!” about it.
No, Y feels downright yucky about it.
You see, X is a bit Xenophobic. He’s always trying to make contact with the lifeforms offpage. With his Xylophone!
And Z, well, you can’t imagine how loud he and his Zebra snore!
And neither letter will yield to Y, even when she yells and yells.
No wonder Y and her Yak yawn so much:
Neither has had a good night’s sleep yet!
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
