Poetic License: My Carmella
Prince Charming gave a royal ball
So he could dance with Cinderella,
But when he came to Palestine
He danced all night with my Carmella.
Her gown was pink from head to toe,
And made to fit by Slenderella,
He asked her name, without a shame,
She answered, “Call me Pinkarella.”
Columbus discovered America
In the name of Spain and Isabella
So Papi Joe could build a house
Where he could swim with his Carmella.
When Ponce de Leon found Florida,
He said, “I’m such a lucky fella,
The Fountain of Youth will keep me cute
And always young like my Carmella.”
Now every summer she can be found
On the isle of Sanibella —
Make no mistake, on Kittiwake,
The beauty queen is My Carmella.
