THE PENGUIN

The penguin’s no slouch, he’s a winner
By sartorial standards no sinner
He’ll emerge in a trice 
From the Antarctic ice
Already dressed for dinner...

Magpie's Pie
In penguin jacket she walks in search
Of her carnage meals for
Road kills are plenty;

So she walks the deathly road
Missing herself barely the
Wheels of cars many.

Premium Member The penguin who squawked for his supper
There once was a penguin, got lost in France
Had to sing for his supper or else dance --
   He decided to squawk
   At which Parisians gawked --
He hit a high note and down came his pants...

she said she
had feet like
a penguin

that i was
the only human
being that loved them

but being selfish
thinking if
she had

no feet
how would
she stand at

the altar
and say

I adore penguins
Sliding on the frozen ice
Love how they waddle
Have wings that can never fly
Mating partners all their life

and dance all night with the fairies
amid divine visions and illicit dreams

My Penguin
Penguins…
They find eachother
Stick with one another
Together forever
Him with her and her with him
Through the cold and death
Loving eachother
That seeps through
Till the last breath
But if only I could find
My penguin.

Friends
Friends
People that care the most
Keeping them close
There for me when I'm sad
There for me when I'm glad
When I'm down
With a frown
My friends turn it upside down
If I ever lose my friends
I'll be lost
Like a penguin in the desert

Blacky The Penguin
There was a young penguin named Blacky
His walk was considered quite wacky
He dressed in a tux
But unlike the ducks
The noise he made wasn't a quacky

Premium Member The price of a meal
Oh, Penguin, how can you stand

In this dark and frozen land

Eating from the same old dish

Squishy Squids and finny fish

From the freezing depths you fly

Up and out into the sky

Then land abruptly on the ice

Dinning here, sure has it's price...

Premium Member Take Good Care of Your Egg
Aww, a blanket of men
With 18 hands
And happy feet
Around me stands 

By smokey fires 
Like a hippy
And keep me warm 
When it gets nippy

Deep inside the penguin pile
Absorbing love, burrow and smile
18 arms and 18 legs
8 men and one happy egg :-)

travel all life
Travel all life

Travel,
Roam all life long,
Pilgrimage shore to shore,
In this life and yon; who can tell
Where to!

A penguin at the end
Of his tuxedoed queue
Is bumped into the sea
By feathered icepack friends
To see if death swims near.

If little loner lives
To swim about and play,
His friends will frolic too.
If a leopard seal feasts       
Friends will waddle away.

was it
she woke after
a night of
tequila

sunrises and
suprised to
find her

penguin feet 
were no longer 
on 

the ground but
had turned
toes

curling as if
a witch in
the Wizard

of Oz but
instead of
shoes she

had a fin
Kafka had 
his beetle

she had
become 
a mermaid
