leeneia Poetry: Little orphant Annie - roundabout or (19) RE: Poetry: Little orphant Annie - roundabout or 19 Oct 19


I thought I was the only person who remembers this poem, but judging from the Internet, quite a few people remember it too.

Annie fails to mention some other horrible things:

fried liver
runny egg yolks
okra
a snake that suddenly crosses one's path.
================
One day in the 1950's my mother came home from library with a copy of 'Riley Child Rhymes with Hoosier Pictures.' It was falling apart, and the library had sold it for a few cents. Nonetheless, I kept it together and read it for years.

The Internet says that 'the Raggedy Man' is the best-known poem after 'Little Orphant Annie', but my 2nd favorite is 'When We Et out
on the Porch.'
