Edwina Eileen Etiquette

Edwina Eileen Etiquette
got all she could getiquette.
She caught her neighbors' Galliformes
and turned them into Maniformes.
Exclaim! Exclaim! (went other dames)
and loosed uncomplimentary names,
but were her needs all metiquette?
Edwina says, "You betiquette!" 

Galliformes = chickens and other large ground-feeding birds.

For day 7 and for "Just One Word" at Toads.

This reminds me of some of your earlier poems which created comical satire out of the foibles of your particular characters. Always loved them.. Here, I applaud the derivation of words.
