Lollapaloosa, what does it mean
It's not in the dictionary, no where to be seen,
So, we'll take it apart and see what we get,
An Apaloosa is a horse, a really great pet.
Loll is to recline, or perhaps to lean,
Even to droop, like a ripening bean,
A Pal is a friend to share everything,
Who makes our lives with laughter ring.
Lap is what animals do to drink,
Down it goes as quick as a wink,
Or it can be a place for grandchildren to sit,
To tell them a story, it's quite a hit.
"Loosa," is how Italians pronounce,
our word loose, the "A" does a bounce,
We smile a little and enjoy their accent,
But that doesn't help, the words still bent.
S.A. is for our state, so what can one say,
Lollapaloosa's a puzzle in every way,
So tell us please what is it's meaning,
As taking it apart didn't give us a gleaning.
