Ode To Professor Clodbottle
Oh, Professor Clodbottle,
What a funny fellow,
With his funny beard and glasses
And his fur a very bright yellow.
He runs The Habitarium
And helps you along the way.
He can help at all times,
Both at night and by day!
Choose your prime location,
The grove, meadow, or lake.
When your P3s work too hard
You should let them take a break.
You can have a Pinchit,
A Mootix, or Larnikin.
You’ll have all three P3,
When you just begin.
They each will have a job,
Which helps get work done.
Lay eggs using Nesters
To grow the size by one.
Workers gather resources,
Wood, grass, and stone.
Run out of one resource
And you’ll feel yourself groan.
All items need resources,
To be built or to buy.
So keep your workers busy
And you’ll have great supply.
But without Professor Clodbottle,
The Habitarium wouldn’t exist!
His invention is fantastic,
We simply can’t resist!
“You’re never gonna do it,”
My friends all laughed at me.
“Come on Tarla, give it up.
You know you can’t succeed!”
I believed in myself and I stood my ground.
“It’s a great idea!” I yelled
Before turning around.
“And when you hear about my fabulous shop,”
They cackled again, but I yelled “STOP!”
“One day, my shop will be famous,
I’ll be renowned,
And when you think about shopping
Don’t bother coming around!”
That was it; I was finished
With those so-called friends.
I was alone on my journey,
But it wasn’t the end.
I trudged through the snow,
My hopes still high,
On the first trip of many,
Just the cleaning supplies.
When I finally found my shop,
I was surprised,
By two nice Chias welcoming me
With paint as I arrived.
I even learned a secret
To make my walks less long and rough --
A secret mountain stair
Cleaned everyday of snow and fluff.
That’s the story of my shop,
And my story, too,
Now I’m so far from home
And everything I knew,
But that doesn’t matter now
That I found my home.
Where else could you have fun shopping?
I’ve even got a gnome!
“Such fun! What a gamble!”
They say after shopping with me.
You wonder what my shop’s about?
Now that’s the mystery!
In the sky,
Rule the winds and fly up high.
At the ground,
The plants and spread
In the air,
Run my fires
At the sea,
Time the tides,
Rule with glee.
In the clouds,
To please the crowds.
At the dark,
Rule the shadows,
Keep the darkness' mark.
The Second-Hand Shoppe
Each Tuesday I go to the Second-Hand Shoppe
To see if there might be a shiny new top
Or trousers that, though worn, fit me perfectly,
To take home and put in my Closet with glee.
At this point, the Shopkeeper
Knows me quite well.
He smiles and waves when I ring the desk bell.
“Good morning, how are you?”
I make sure to call.
It’s thanks to him I even come in at all!
You see, I once thought
All the stuff there was junk.
The first time I went, I was struck by the funk.
I couldn’t believe my eyes (and nose) at all --
I swear there were Piles of Dung wall to wall.
“I guess no one looks here
To dress to impress,”
I joked as I waved my hand at the huge mess.
The Shopkeeper shrugged
And then gave me grin
And said, “You might be surprised --
Won’t you come in?”
I doubted him, but didn’t like to be rude,
So I stepped inside hiding my skeptical mood.
He seemed so upbeat in spite of all the trash.
His hope wasn’t something I wanted to dash.
I gingerly stepped through
The rows to the back
To look at the clothing displayed on the rack.
I didn’t expect to find anything good,
But soon it was clear that I’d misunderstood!
Between the potato sacks and mossy rocks
Sat a wonderful pair of Torn Pink Gym Socks.
And there, hidden under a Veiled Autumn Hat,
Was a Bear. Oh my! I’d been looking for that!
“But how could this be?” I cried out in surprise.
The Ruki just smiled as I clutched my prize.
“Although it might seem
Like there’s nothing good here,”
He said, “You just have to look carefully, dear.”
That Ruki sure knows what he’s talking about.
Each time I find something great
I have to shout.
New backgrounds and garlands
And skirts and shoes, too,
There’s something for everyone --
Yes, even you!
Just trust in his faith
And keep looking through piles,
You’re sure to find something
That will make you smile.
A fashionable chap like him knows his stuff.
I promise. Just go there.
You’ll see soon enough!
You walk in the Neocash Mall,
But what is that scent?
Fresh baked cookies, much to your content,
You wonder who's the one
Baking these delightful wafers,
And still thinking about the delicious flavour,
You suddenly hear a Cybunny
Named Noda shouting,
“Magical Cookies, up for sale!
Buy them while they’re nice and warm,
And the magic will quickly take form.”
You go and ask him,
“But what do they do?
Do they make you breathe fire,
Or do they grant you infinite food?
Do they make you fly higher than any faerie?
Can they let you bend metal?
Can they create Battledome weapons?
The possibilities are endless,
So Noda, what do they do?”
“Haha, I wish,
But here, let me show you,
This is what they do:
One can grant you an item,
Like the Constellation Wings
Or the Contacts of the Cosmos,
But wait, there’s more!
You can also gift
Four more for your friends!
So, at only 250 NC,
You can get five items,
One for you, four more for your close friends,
Hurry, before they run out,
Because I won’t be releasing more,
For quite a while.”
I see, so does the Starry Fortune Cookie
Give you all those things?”
“Yes, and that’s just one kind
Of the batch I just baked.
The next kind can let you gain more points
Instead of only getting a measly
1k for each time you play,
That amount will be doubled,
Or even tripled, for an entire day!
Now, your 3,000 for Kass Basher,
Becomes a 6,000 with delay,
175 NC is nothing for this item!”
“Mmm-hmm,” you say in amazement.
“What other kinds are there?”
“Okay, this one I don’t like,
It gives you more lab zaps,
To The Secret Laboratory Ray,
So your 'pets can become stronger
And beautiful quicker!
Personally, I don’t think the ray
Is such a pleasant thing,
But many Neopians like it,
So I make these cookies.” Noda says.
“Ah, I see. Are there any more,
And how do you make these?”
“Yes, there’s one more,
It’s the most popular of all,
It’s kinda like the lab ray one,
But this one is much better overall.
It gives out quests from the faeries,
So you can train your 'pets,
Or perhaps you’ll get
The elusive Fountain Faerie!”
“Now,” Noda continued,
“I don’t like to give out my business secrets,
But I’ll tell you, it’s no easy trick,
I put in a special powder
Blessed by the faeries,
And it changes your luck instantly.”
Your jaw drops,
And you start grabbing every cookie in sight,
And you say,
“I’d like to buy all of these amazing biscuts,
They’re so awesome,
Much better than all of this clothing!”
