The Quest for Keys
As I am directed to the waiting room,
Where I patiently wait for others to load,
I think of which place I should begin,
And which way would be the best road.
After rolling the die,
I find that it is my turn to pick first.
Which starting home shall I choose?
Well, anything but the one that is cursed.
The prettiest house it is!
After my opponents choose their places,
I get to roll the die first,
And I move on ahead six places.
And so the game goes on,
And the die comes to me.
Sooner than I thought,
I was left to find one last key.
I roll the die once more
And land on the Jackpot space.
How lucky am I?
Imagine the victory I taste!
Along with the Neopoints and rewards,
I choose for myself that one last key,
And wait for my next turn,
Patiently, ever so patiently.
Finally! A thousand hours have passed!
Oh, my chance, my chance at last!
Oh, that prize, waiting for me in the vaults!
Oh, I will get there, really soon, really fast!
I roll the die and it says six!
That is enough to get me to the gate,
Where I can then claim my prize,
For which I can no longer wait!
I am filled with excitement and energy
And waiting for my token to move,
When all of a sudden...
boom, boom, boom.
My heart is broken,
My hopes are crushed,
My computer froze,
My cheeks are flushed.
I look at my computer with a frown,
Because, for no reason
That I could imagine,
It... shut down.
A swirling sandstorm dwells outside,
Within, it's safe and sound.
A desert haven in the tent,
While chaos swirls around.
Within oasis doth she dwell,
It's Peopatra's stall.
With tiny Petpets running here,
There's room for one and all.
The Peophin of softest heart
Takes each small Petpet in.
Comfort and a tiny bed,
All hugged with caring fin.
Her long mane tied in charcoal braids,
She glides around the store.
It's filled with Petpets to the brim,
And yet there's room for more.
She'll search the arid land for more.
Determined, shall she roam,
To help each Petpet find its place,
And seek a loving home.
To find a creature of the sea
Within this driest land
Might seem odd to you and me,
And yet we understand.
Her calling, see, is in the sun,
To find each Petpet lost.
They all need care, and feeding too,
No matter what the cost.
Those tiny friends she doth seek out,
Across the sand, she'll call.
For Petpets find a haven here,
Within this desert stall.
Come One, Come All to the Chocolate Ball!
Neopets and Neopettes,
Lennies and Grarrls,
Faeries and long-dead kings
(Coltzan, this means you!),
Harken to me this early fall day,
This special day,
This chocolaty day,
The fifteenth day
Of the month of Gathering:
The annual Chocolate Ball is under way!
Invitations have been sent
(The ink is chocolate,
The paper is fondant -- taste it!)
The Chocolate Factory ballroom
Is bedecked in its finest
(Finest chocolate, that is --
All decorations are samples,
Please try out our treats!)
The chocolate sculptures are up, feast your eyes
(And feast in the usual sense: "edible" is our theme).
The fine columns are white chocolate,
The curtains are royal icing,
The floor itself is dusted in crumbled
Chocolate chip cookies.
Please try our new Chocolate Eclair Paste
(Please do, please do, please have a taste!)
Our Chocolate Coated Peanut Butter
Will leave your heart in a flutter,
Hold this Chocolate Fan in your delicate paw
(Yes, you may lick it, or, you know, have a gnaw!)
And card collectors rejoice, for today is your day,
Today that rare find, the Chocolate Cybunnies card
("Filled with gooey carroty goodness,"
And held in high regard)
Is yours for the taking at the top of
Chocolate Marshmallow Mountain
(Eat your way up, you know you want one!)
And another awaits you
At the bottom of the Chocolate Fountain
(Slurp your way down, come on, it's fun!)
And later, much later, when the party is done,
When the columns have been chewed,
And the curtains licked up,
And the chocolate chip crumbed floor swept clean
By careful Petpets' nibbling,
And the Chocolate Eclair Paste and Chocolate Fans
Are only sweet stains on young Neopets' hands,
And the Chocolate Fountain runs dry,
And the Chocolate Marshmallow Mountain
Is no longer quite so high,
Sad pets all over will give their thanks and depart
And trudge slowly to warm beds in
Cosy Neohomes near and far.
But, young Neopets, take heart,
Awaiting under each plump pillow
Is our newest chocolate creation:
We call it -- bear with us here --
The Chocolate Dream,
It is shaped like a heart
And filled with the lightest cream,
Taste it if you like, or save it for later:
Hidden inside is a small fondant note,
And it will look familiar to you, we hope;
Yes, it is an invitation, as you will be glad to hear:
Please join us for our Chocolate Ball next year!
I Am a Chocolate Chia
I am a chocolate Chia,
I'm made of sweets and cream,
The cream atop my chocolate head:
A yummy chocolate dream!
Oh, to be a chocolate Chia,
Takes time and luck -- the best,
Whether from a lucky zap,
Or Fountain Faerie Quest.
Everyone loves chocolate Chias,
They're two good things combined,
A chocolate Chia is the best
Of pets that you can find!
But out of all our admirers,
Our fans who love and boast,
It seems that one especial pet
Adores us all the most!
But when they come for autographs,
A close-up look, maybe,
All they seem to want from us,
Is to eat us up for tea!
Desert Draik's Flight
Empress of the desert realm,
a land of sand and dunes.
Glass-hued wings and sky-blue eyes,
she flies off into the noon.
Soaring into the scorching heat,
a lazuli necklace on.
Surveying subjects from above,
soon she is long gone.
A pharaoh's hat upon her head,
golden rings encircling her tail.
she steadily continues her flight,
with no thoughts to fail.
A whirling of sand-coloured scales,
her stop is quite abrupt.
She tiredly turns around,
it's surely been enough.
The young desert Draik
returns back from her flight,
Touches down quietly,
in the darkness of night.
