U is for Ukulele

Ursula got fired from the underwear store
She burst into tears and ran out the door,
Out in the rain she ran, with no umbrella
Along came an extremely handsome fella,

“I’m Ulysses,” the gorgeous hunk said
and he held an umbrella over her head,
“I’m Ursula and I just got fired
I’m very unhappy and awfully tired.”

“I know a way to brighten your day.”
He took out a ukulele and began to play
“Unbelievable,” Ursula cried, ”Can I try it too?”
“Sure, I just happen to have a uke for you.”

“Fantastic,” she said and began to play
Her sadness started to fade away,
They sang almost every song they knew
A small crowd gathered and grew and grew,

The group sang every verse and every refrain
And when they were done, they started again,
They played their ukes til dawn’s early glow
They may still be playing, for all I know!

This April I am participating in the A-Z Challenge 

and the NaPoWroMo Challenge NaPoWriMo where I will write a post and a poem for each letter of the alphabet each day in April except for Sundays.


  1. I once worked with a girl who played in a ukelele band. Loved your poem.

    1. That's fun, Suzy! My harpist friend whom I play flute with, also plays ukelele and was the inspiration for this poem. It is a fun instrument that brings people together.

  2. What a cute poem Cat! Love your creative flowing words! :) <3

    1. Thanks, Elly. This was one of my zany poems where I let the words flow out to see where it would take me.
