Ending in A Muddle?

April 18, 2011 "You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you."
Joseph Joubert

I found the word, taradiddle, recently, and haven't been able to get it out of my head. I like the sound of it, & wondered if I could make a silly poem with it? Here's my attempt!


I wonder if a taradiddle

Might sometimes be a little riddle?

For if I tell you that I yodel,

How would you know that it’s fiddle-faddle?

It’s not quite the same as a real swindle;

It could be I’m only discussing a whangdoodle

Crazily playing a paradiddle.

In any case, I should really scuddle

For fear I’m becoming quite befuddled.

Please forget the taradiddle

This is only putting me in a muddle.
