If I could tell you of the tales

That in my life have been regaled

Of witches, clones and flying things

Like bats and other strange beings

Or zombies who take walks at night,

Like voodoo magic by firelight.

I know this all sounds rather queer

Especially this time of year

But Halloween is on its way

In fact, my dears, it is today !

 

THE APPLE TREE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/15

Oh goodness me, what do I see

An errant kite caught in the tree ?

What shall we do, too high to reach

How can we span this giant breach ?

When I was young I used to climb

These twisted branches all the time

Amazing that I never fell

Yet still have loads of tales to tell.

Though apple trees can’t grow too tall

In fact they seem to be quite small

The limbs all jumbled in a bunch

There’s scarcely room to nibble lunch

I’ll settle for just bread and cheese

Beneath the fragrant apple trees !

 

 

RELOCATION ( 2018 ) 2018/06/13

I acquired a friend quite recently

Who lives just across the room from me

Whereby my pillow I constant see

His acrobatic activity.

He lives in this house made of thick glass

He makes no noise and doesn’t harass

A more perfect mate one could not ask

Although his presence creates small task.

He requires a meal but once a day

Always remains clear out of my way

Daily the water starts to turn gray

Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.

I still have this friend at my address

I pray he moves soon so I can rest  !

 

HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH

 

 

 

THIS HOROSCOPE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/13

The moon must be up in the sky

I have this feeling I could cry

But there is nothing wrong with me

Not anything that I could see ?

Perhaps the stars got in my eyes

While I was busy watching skies

Or maybe Venus went astray

In retrograde and lost her way.

This horoscope will have to keep

I think it’s time to go to sleep !

 

 

MUCH GASSIER ( 2018 ) 2018/03/28

It’s sad to think the world we know

Is packing up, prepared to go

Where are we going I can’t say

I haven’t heard a word today

I’m hoping that it’s not to Mars

Although I’m not opposed to stars

I’d much prefer old Jupiter

Though it is so much gassier !

 

 

 

SWEET PEA TOO ( 2018 ) 2018/03/26

Long time ago, I was a little tot

There was this cartoon that I loved a lot !

Oh, Popeye once you were  a bunch of fun

I laughed at all those silly fights you won

I’d like to know about Miss Olive Oyl

Tell me is she still your favorite girl ?

Popeye, of all the foods you love the best

Does your tin-canned spinach still top the rest ?

What have you done with your old corn cob  pipe

You know the one, that pipe you never light ?

I sure am glad that you have hung around

With all  of that odd salty seaman sound

My dears for all the smiles I say thank you

To Popeye,Wimpy, Bluto, Sweet Pea too !

Oh can you hear the constant sound

Of weather rageing all around

We’re in the middle of a storm

That’s taken such an ugly form.

I’m glad that I am not outside

The wind might take me for a ride

Although perhaps that could be fun

If only we’d a bit of sun !
