Kid



Spiky hair,
brittle waves,
porcupine,
hedgehog,
spiny Anteater,
echidna.

A kid
growing up
prickly.
The long tongues
of children
gibe him sharp.

Tumbleweed in the schoolyard.
Can’t tread him down.
Hurts are on the surface
like frozen
alphabet spaghetti.

Thorns and barbs,
jagged Jeers,
quills quietly quivering
the quarry -
face tucked
into his heart.

Premium Member It Was In My Mouth
I felt her gaze upon me
With unavoidable bright eyes
Her adoration made me smile
She is so innocent, yet so wise

I swooped her up and held her close
That's when it all went south
With the speed of an anteater
My dog Pixies tongue was...Read More

THE BULL
His regular emissions
Worthy of politicians

THE ANT
To the anteater
Nothing is sweeter

THE SLOTH
Feel his chagrin
Labelled deadly sin

THE TURKEY
With justified reason
Deplores festive season

THE EEL
Mobile on belly
Recumbent in jelly

THE CAMEL
Far from pretty
Designed by committee

THE HIPPO
A chubby figure
Mouth even bigger 
 
THE RHINO
His muzzle...Read More

Premium Member A Dainty Flower I Would Be
If a dainty pink flower I would be,
I would choose the delicate peony.
Anteater friendly,
Really bendy,
Encouraging him to lick ants off me.

Noah's Ark
God asked Noah to build an ark
he was happy to oblige
but he wasn't so keen
when he found out 
what had to go inside

Two of every animal
then you must set sail
the animals were fearful
the whale began to wail

Even the Gnu knew

Premium Member The Aardvark and the Pangolin
The Aardvark and the Pangolin,
Romantically, had been entwined.
But infidelity, was in the air,
Aardvark, had a new suiter in mind.

Pangolin, did challenge his rival,
The Anteater with beautiful snout.
Don’t fear for me, on your betrayal,
Sweet Armadillo, is taking me out.

CLEMENTINE
I'm so sad and mad, said Clementine the porcupine
Everyone is afraid of me, one glance and they pee
Do they think I shoot my quills, just for thrills
I can't help the way I am

Me, too, said Antoinette the anteater
I look scary,...Read More
