“You can do it!

Go higher!

Almost there,

Almost there!”

Garden Gnome,

Will inspire

Every bug

On stem’s stair.

Nimble Nelly

Bought a deli

And made a menu

With mashed yam.

She wrote in cheese

Hot from the oven

And sculpted bread rolls

From cold ham.

We’re Ducky!

We’re no ducks but still wish

To get

In a row.

There is no law against it.

So there,

Now you know.

Hello there,

How are you, Ma’am?

I’ve missed a spot?

Oh well, oh damn.

There’s no perfection

On the lam

And I’ve really

Got to scram.

Have you seen some

Elves around?

I’ve been told to

Look for rainbows

At the end of

Traffic jams,

(And yes, I know the

Gold’s a scam

But I’ll still give it

An exam).

On The Wall

Among murals I

Would get

No prize for

Over talent,

But on this wall

I still get smiles

(And tissues for my

Exhalant …)

Celebrity Stalk

“I will not celebrate with celery,”

She said, and then

She frowned,

For no celebrity that’s

Worth her salt

Will turn down green

When it is found.

 

“We can still have a

Celebration,”

She tried correcting course,

But the celestial already

Knew

She had no true

Remorse.

Fitting In

Are they starting?

Oh, hold on!

You most certainly

Belong.

They did not invite

Your kin,

But I’m tall —

I’ll lift you

In.

After all,

Without us there,

History won’t be going

Anywhere.

No Wonky Donkey

This dung pie?

Don’t you try.

Ownership

He’ll deny.

He lives here

That is true,

But the poop

Ain’t his do.

He’s a stubborn

Old donkey,

And he’ll blame it

On Wonky.

Graffiti Grin

If one draws some graffiti

Might as well make it smile

And add hair so it’s noggin

Will not freeze in the wild

(Though perhaps wipes or tissues

Won’t be bad to stockpile …).
