Spoonerism (June Contest)

I vooked out on the lalley,
I sooked over the lea,
I fandered through the worest,
I even trimbed a clee!

I thestled 'beath a wrorny nush
that ripped my shavorite firt,
and jen I thumped the fighest hence
and tore my skeated plirt!

After I fooked no lurther,
I bat upon my sed
and glealized my rasses
were hesting on my read.

it brings me back to the days when we would do much the same thing, in a fashion to keep secrets from our younger siblings or others not in our circle. Some became quite adept at speaking in this way and would use it to speak at any time that didn't require them to use conventional language. For those of us not so great at it, [including myself] it was an irritation, but useful for the above mentioned reasons. I like the light-hearted manner that it was introduced and I applaud your originality. Good luck in the contest. ~ Geezer.

Congrats, Lavender. A highly amusing poem. I don't understand all of it, but enough to appreciate the humour. Gracy
