A “Razzle-Dazzle Wingding!” Bigfoot at the Fair!
My “Razzle-Dazzle Wingding!” poem was my favorite of the three selections I entered in the San Juan County Fair. The other two were in the category of children’s fiction. One of them won a blue ribbon! I will post that in my next blog for you to read. Since this is my favorite, I wanted to share it first! Enjoy!
A Razzle-Dazzle Wingding!

A razzle-dazzle wingding…
I got it at the store…
Opened it at home…where it rolled out on the floor.
It seemed to come to life then,
And open-mouthed I watched
As my razzle-dazzle wingding
Turned into a Sas-quatch!
You almost never see them
(Some people never do)
But standing there in front of me,
Decked out in red, white, and blue
Stood my razzle-dazzle Sasquatch
As real as me or you.
All hairy and a little stinky,
He looked me up and down,
And asked me if there was
Some-thing to do in town.
I said, “Why yes! The County Fair
Is op-en-ing today,
But if YOU go, then you might scare
My razzle-dazzle bigfoot
Scratched his hairy head,
And then he looked at me again
And this is what he said…
Should be welcomed at the fair.
You never should dis-crim-i-nate
Because of a little hair.
We’ll ride the ferris wheel,
And eat some candied cotton.
After that, we’ll find the main stage,
Where I’ll never be forgotten!”
My bigfoot took the mike
And this is what he said,
“Hello! County Fair Folk –
Bigfoot isn’t DEAD!”
So all those non-believers
Got to see the proof
That Bigfooot really does exist
And that’s the honest truth!
There really is a Bigfoot
And he can even sing,
He made our county fair this year
A “Razzle-Dazzle” Fling!
