I WONDER

Disney-The-Seven-Dwarfssource

This admittedly ridiculous excuse for a poem, was inspired by an article that crossed my desk today. It was about the other possible names that were considered for the original 7 dwarves… Grumpy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Happy, Bashful,  and Sneezey.  There were originally 47.    My apologies. Z~

I wonder.

What if Mr. Disney had chosen different,

but equally descriptive names

for the original septet?

**

What about Baleful?

The sinister, psychic Dwarf?

Foreshadowing tragedy, ever threatening,

Would he have sold out the Princess, to the Queen?

**

Maybe if Soulful

Were allowed to bring his saxophone to work

Heigh-Ho would have been

a bit less dirge and a lot more groove.

**

Of course there are the twins

Hottsy and Tottsy who were obviously hanging

with Hickey and Chesty,

Never to be confused with Dumpy, Sweaty and Messy.

 **

While Grumpy proves little people

May also benefit from anger management skills,

He can’t be alone in his need for services.

I mean what about Moody,  Touchy,  Lazy and Lonely?

  **

I know it may seem frivolous,

But these are the things

That keep me up at night.

**

My name isn’t Dopey for nothing.

  3. Now this was an interesting ponder, and I am thinking how fun it would be to ask a class or group to come up with their own additions to the original gang. I do wonder how they settled on the chosen ones, is there a method to the madness, a thread of connectivity? I do hope that I will not now go to sleep thinking of little people with strange names, but I suspect I might! Thank you Dear Zoe! 🙂

    Personally, I think ridiculous excuses for either poetry or prose are the best kind!
    My recent poem makes me think that my dwarf’s name might be Braggy.

      Hey I read yours this morning but couldnt comment from my phone… stupid android! ARGH! I dont think Braggy is it… I think INTREPID would be a cool name! You would have to be a distant cousin though as its a bit too cool and not very enchanted-forest-7-dwarf-sounding!

  8. Into the mind of a dwarf we go. It’s always the “dumb” ones who think the most.
