Peek-A-Boo

you who, Peek-A-Boo
peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo
can you see me seeing you
hey,
I can think of a thing or two
who's time, who's time, who's time is due
like,
making a pistachio and cherry gumdrop ice cream stew
or perhaps,
a lemony luscious little marshmallow caribou
how's about a rainbow colored cotton candy cockatoo
perchance,
a knock kneed candy cane giraffe might do
or maybe,
a chewy gooey chocolate chip and coconut shrew
possibly,
a strawberry shortcake Winnie the Phooh
oooh I know,
a yummy gummy caramel covered carrot cupcake kangaroo
no?
well we could always whip-up some eye of newt
in a slimy 'ol "swamp toad" witches brew
ooh yuck!
that may be just a little tooo ew, to chew
I'll be seeing you
peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo

Bio: He’s a retired cook, then truck driver, now poet & actor living in USA.  He sees poetry as an opportunity to communicate and connect with all kindred spirits in a way that may offer good practical food for thought, but also in ways that will encourage readers to go beyond their own normal comfort zones and explore other subject matters they may not have previously considered.
