I Have a Window in My Mouth
As I walked
By the lamps and doors
Couches and chairs
Down the furniture aisle I went,
Eating a piece of gum
From left to right the store was packed
Gasping a employee rushed over to me
“How dare you chew gum in this store!”
I was taken by surprise at the sudden anger
Jumping backwards I stumbled into a few doors next to me
Kittens were patterned on the employee’s sweater and they seemed to glare.
Laughing, chuckling, I couldn’t help it, it was hilarious.
“Must you laugh! There’s nothing funny!
Not stopping, I continued to giggle.
Obviously she was getting mad, her face turned bright red.
Placing a lampshade next to me she glared,
“Quiet!” Fine, keep laughing I don’t care. ” She pulled out a wand.
Right across the aisle a crowd was gathering.
Standing up, the employee started to speak something I couldn’t understand.
The wand shook and a bright sparkly color shot out.
Uncertainty I shuffled backwards.
Veering to the right I ducked as a door fell down, powered by the odd magic.
Windows rained down next to me and one landed right in my mouth
Xeric and as dry as a cactus it slid down onto my tongue
“You can’t mess with furniture employees!” shouted the employee.
Zig zagging down my throat I realized, I have a window in my mouth.
The Alphabet With Numbers
An Alphabet in numbers is a very simple thing
Because really, the letters can be any number.
Caring about the letter’s number might be hard to do.
Dare to try,
Even though the regular alphabet is
Fun, and named after the
Greek letters Alpha and Beta.
However, an alphabet in numbers
In truth, isn’t hard.
Just try, I want you to try to say the word
Kangaroo in numbers. You might say 8, if you count every
Letter. However, I
Might say 11, for K’s
Perhaps you could be random for easy,
Quick, writing and
Though, an alphabet in numbers can be really fun,
Usage of letters in an alphabet in numbers is
When I get bored of numbers, I use variables like
X. And now, with that said,
You should try an alphabet with numbers. It’s not
Zany, it’s the best!
Gus Goes To Vegas
Bus grinds to a halt, “LAS VEGAS!”
Come and explore this colorful place
Dance with a monkey or two
Elephants, parade down the streets
Fancy flamingos that flew!
Gus grabbed refreshments, though,
Hungry for more
Ice cream and burgers
Just tired and sore…
Kumquat farmer finds Gus fast asleep
Lying on a tree?
Most peculiar sight,
No farmer would see
On the strike of the lightning
Pouring rain fell
Quite confused Gus,
Rose to a smell
Smelling the hot-dog
That was only half-done
Up came a bird that was
Where Gus was, was surprising to all
Xylophones stacked, to help Gus get down
You’d never believe this was real, seeing
Zillions of stars Gus walked away with a frown. Gus will not go to Vegas anytime soon.
The Dog Who Plays Soccer
Best soccer player in the town
Can you play better
Even if you could your probably just dreaming
Fly a plane to china you’ll find him there
Got a passport, only way you’ll make it
Huh you don’t have one hmmm
I know, you go to Canada and ask for a passport
Just kidding he’s right behind you
Kevin the cat was right behind you and he’s here to take that dog down
Lucky enough he was the 2nd best
Meanwhile the dog heard Kevin’s excited whispers and decided to take a nap
Naps took a long time especially dog naps so when he woke up, he was cranky
Oh, and the dog’s name was Calvin
Put on you shin guards, socks, cleats, and jersey
Quicker than a cheetah was Calvin
“Rude” Kevin said
So anyway, let the games begin!
Tweeeeeet go go go!
Under over sideways SCORE! 1-point for Calvin 30 minutes later they take a break
Very tired but Kevin was practicing
Wait the game still go’s on
Yeah Kevin scores and the game he is a champion
Zebras everywhere leading a party for celebration!
WHAT IS NOTHING?
As best as I can explain it, nothing is…
Barrels filled with emptiness
Costly toys at the Dollar Store
Death lurking in life
Estates that are only three square feet
Flips that don’t rotate
Ghosts wandering, wishing for
Hope that has long since been destroyed
Incidents that weren’t an accident
Jack-in-the-boxes with broken springs
Kinks in a tightrope
Laughs without joy
Money without value
Nile rivers filled with dryness
Oaks without bark or branches
Papers you can’t draw on
Quills with no ink bottle
Readers that lost all their books
Systems that don’t operate
Tiles that are all connected
Unicycles that lost their wheels
Vets that don’t take care of animals
What is nothing?
Xylophones that don’t play
You know what nothing it
‘Zat it is everything with no purpose
The Mug That Broke At Midnight
After I received the mug from Zelda, her
Boyfriend Zander said it was ugly,
Commenting in a way I can only
Describe as nauseatingly
Effusive and dripping with disdain. He
Gushed over the hideous color and shape,
Highlighting his opinions
In calculated adjectives
Just to hurt my feelings.
Keeping to my typical
Laconic edge, I
“Not that you have taste to speak
Of,”, (for I was rather
Partial to the way it
Reminded me of his
Sister’s picture of
The two of them holding
Umbrellas in striking
Vermillion on the trip they took to
Wisconsin when he became my
Yikes! Why didn’t I see it before midnight?!
Zander’s face is one ugly mug, and so is this.
The Snow Path I Followed
A snow path lay
Carefully caved into the
Deep snow, wide
For only one person, me,
Hidden by the trees
I followed it
Just a bit more and I’ll turn back
Knowing that I could could not go on forever
Long did I
Mosey down that trail
Now it is dark but I am not lost
Out here in the snow
Putting one foot
Quietly in front of the other
Rustling my coat
Sleeves, finally I
Underneath the stars I have
Vanquished the snow path
Wanting at last to go home, dreaming of
Xenias I wander back home where I know
You are waiting for me with
The Night The Moon Stopped Glowing
But not too long
Caught in a web
Every hair stood on end
High and haughty
Now is time
Quest of all quests
River won’t tell
The night the moon stopped glowing
When the light refuses
Zero and all
Are You Sleeping? I Have News!
Once upon a time there was a dog
That was reporting the news
And said “Are you sleeping? I have news!”
It said “Guess what? The corona virus was just a dream”
Then it screamed, “WAKE UP!”
Corona virus was just a dream
Dog reporting the news, “WUH?”
“I’m gonna try saying that again, the dog reporting the news is done,
