Puce il Animus!

PUCE

PUCE IL ANIMUS!

I'm sure that you will all deduce
That Rinkly Rimes is quite a goose,
Picking on the colour 'puce'!
Puce!
*
'Puce' is the French word for a flea!
Fleas have such audacity!
Biting people on the knee!
Puce!
*
They pounce on people in the night!
They leave a mark! An ugly sight!
They fill with blood each time they bite!
Puce!
*
And when a flea is fully fed
From our blood, where we have bled,
The blood's a sort of brownish red;
Puce!
*
And yet, as you will see below,
The colour has a pleasant glow.
(I think that's all you need to know!)
Puce!
*

So you chose PUCE - you deserve a flea in your ear!!! Must admit, though, that's a nice little collection. Mine's up.

And for your next suggestion!

Oh Puce! For some reason, stating that this is a very cute poem, conflicts with the image in my mind. You're good!

Yes, "quite a goose" for sure. ;) But, I must admit it was fun and I even learned something. Love the poem!
