Paisley prints and peppermints


Paisley prints
Dotted the walls
Twas the wackiest wallpaper
Ever installed

For it tasted of peppermints
And smelled like pine
Just walking past it
To some was divine

I thought it odd
And couldn’t stand the smell
It actually made me
Feel quite unwell

Everyone else
Seemed fond of the taste
But I couldn’t see
All the hype of that paste

I tried to avoid the room
With the paisley prints
Just never cared much
For the taste of mints

Good thing too
As I passed the room one day
Every single person
Had fainted dead away

        1. Awww…. that’s so sweet of you to say. You’ve been missed! I’ll have to stop by later and see what you’re up to now that you’re back. Any new posts? 🙂


    1. Ha! You’re completely wrong! 😉 This was actually a prompt I did with my girls this morning and the influence was from me remembering the scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, when they’re licking the wallpaper. 😉
