Marian requested/suggested I write about Ancient Rome

If I lived in Ancient Rome
I'd sure feel at home
Going to the coliseum
Living each day through carpe diem.
I'd wear a toga
Maybe invent yoga.
I'd drive a cart
and appreciate art.
I'd get paid the big bucks
to build aqueducts.

But I'd pay any amount
to know Count von Count
To live on Sesame Street
would be really neat
Especially with lots of
books to read!

Leave it to Amy to put the Muppets into a poem about ancient Rome.

How could I exclude them? That's the perk of living in modern times.

Anne said...

Do you like other puppets too?
(I'm asking as a puppeteer and librarian.)

The Liberry aka Amy said...

Muppets, not puppets!

Marian The said...

In fact Amy just told me she had a nightmare about having to do a puppet show.
Apparently only Muppets will do.

Serious, I woke up scared/angry!
