Christmas Tree Cat
Once, I received for Christmas a sweet cat,
she was in a box flat as a doormat;
she made a colossal bound,
running around and around;
and Christmas tree became her habitat !

Horse drawn carriages were at the will of the stag
What if he had a scrap with his nagging old nag
Must be the same
In the equestrian game
It's a universal complaint for us male fleabags
My Eyeballs Bulge
At times I've been under the influence
So since I growed up it's no coincidence
That when I indulge
My eyeballs bulge
And my pulsating body becomes conspicuous
A One Act Play

Jolly Ole Chap

He had just awoken from Nap;
In passing him by
He winked me the eye,
And, he asked if I’d sit on his lap.
At first I yelped out with a chuckle,
One Christmas Eve, I took a trip.
My hot cocoa was spiked, with Reindeer nip.
I woke up, at the North Pole.
I wanted to see Santa, so I took a stroll.
He wasn't in his sleigh, but...Read More
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
I walked down the stairs, and I took a pause.
I saw my mommy, kissing Santa Claus.
I slapped him in the face, because it made me mad.
Then I realized, it was my dad.

Painting lilies whilst eating a cake,
He dropped crumbs in the water,

Except For Some Freaks
Call me a dreamer, think MOST peeps are good
But still wouldn't change things even if I could
Man basically loves peace
Except for some freaks
Unhappy individuals quite misunderstood?
