Going bananas for bananas!!!

This poem is a Vocal + Assist Facebook community challenge…

I am a banana

And I'm wearing plaid pajamas

Coasting through Havana

Rockin' the cabana

Got my green bandana

Waiting for Diana

Leaving Louisiana

On our way to Indiana

It's just Americana

Remember what I say I am a banana

Slippers and pajamas

Dancing in Havana

Dress in the cabana

Wear the snazziest bandana

Listen to Diana

Singin' in Louisiana

Pitstop Indiana

Celebrate Americana

But remember one more time… that I am a banana that is wearing plaid pajamas

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.

    Great job finding so many words that rhyme with banana! The poem could be a nursery rhyme or a song.

    This sounds like one of those crazy bedtime rhymes within a children's poetry book. That being written, I'm exhausted. Time to crash.
