Mud-luscious

Okay, okay, I know it's not a play or a playwright, but since our founder is a poet, can I just celebrate spring by posting this here? And, is there a better word than 'mud-luscious'?! If there is, tell me what it is. No, wait...don't.

spring          when the world is mud-

lame balloonman

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it's
spring
and

         the

                  goat-footed

balloonMan          whistles
far
and
wee
