The Pickling Dilemma of Berri Plum & P. Bartletta!
Berri Plum and P. Bartletta lived together on a very distinct Fructus Tree
At precisely four, they would always have their delectable Blue Mountain tea...
and dreamt and conversed of traveling to a far off coral sea
They wished to be together forever, as it were,
Although, they knew there were absolutely no guarantees
But none the less, they continued to spend their days
Eating the tart apples that appeared and having such daring spelling bees!
Till one very fine day when Berri decided to shake things up a bit
And challenged P. Bartletta to a very formidable match in geography!
Now, P. knew very little on this subject
So she scuffled and grappled to answer all the vexing questions posed to her
But alas, the final one she NEVER got which was, "What is the capital of Tennessee?"
This is where the calamity of Berri Plum and P. Bartletta began
Yes, they were stuck for all time and now in a frightful tizzy
Where neither of them talked to each other and made believe they were quite busy
Yet as time went on there was no one to talk to, no one to share a moment
They felt bad inside, kind of rotten in fact,
and feelings started to lie unforgivingly dormant.
To be continued... as life always does.
