CCC#81: Johnny Be Good

Crimsons Creative Challenge #81

Little Johnny B Goode should have been named No Good
For Little Johnny never did as Little Johnny should

Little Johnny B Good, don’t you go near that water
But Little Johnny B Good, being at best No Good, ventured ever closer and near

Little Johnny B Good, don’t you go peering in that water
But Little Johnny B Goode, being at best No Good, peered to see what’s there

Little Johnny B Goode, don’t you go feeding the fishes there
But Little Johnny B Goode, being at best No Good, threw in a half-chewed pear

Sad to tell the rest of this tale for a gnarly great beast did erupt in a swell, jaws dropped wide, and in Johnny fell


Inspired from a song remembered from when every weekend I’d rock the dance floor

    There are those who just don’t ken the dangers; or think they are beyond them! Or, are simply boys who don’t listen! This was a fun one!

  11. I didn’t see the song inspiration at first, but when I was reading the poem, I thought of songs! But in my mind it was more blues/soul than rock. Very cool!
