NO MATTER WHAT SHAPE YOUR STOMACH IS IN

A pleasant ditty,
a melody too pretty
for a title so weird.
You’ve heard it as a jingle,
a little thing to shill
for that Alka-Seltzer® pill.
Round, curvy, slightly swervey,
you’ve guessed it, when your
digestive tract acts up.
Turn the music up;
no matter what shape
your stomach is in!

  1. Thanks for stopping by. I’ve done a few ‘concrete’ poems before actually knowing what they were.

    Looking forward to more of Quickly’s fun and games and seeing you too!

    I remember Mr. Speedy!!! Some of the newer advertisements as my hubby might say may want us to seek relief – and this we can do by turning down the volume or just turning the electronics ‘off’. 🙂

  2. Yes, that will do the trick – drown out the gurgly-and other-sounds plus it might even inspire dancing which, I find always helps with guts acting up. 🙂

    Good to see you around the smiling place, Walt! Thank you for your kind words. 🙂
