Ode to the Advent Calendar
In the Month of Celebrating
Neopians spread the holiday cheer,
And even the Faeries rejoice,
About these holidays that we hold dear.
But nothing spreads the joy,
Nothing nearly goes this far,
As the true generosity,
Of the Advent Calendar.
From all corners of Neopia,
Pets flock to Happy Valley,
Bundled up in coats,
They maneuver through the alleys.
The excitement is rising,
As they wait in line.
To collect their prize,
Oh, this calendar sure is fine!
They collect their gifts,
And hurriedly scamper away,
To show their owners,
What they have gotten for today!
It could be some food,
To help those poor, hungry pets,
Or maybe some medicine,
So they don't need vets!
So now I conclude,
And now you can see,
We can thank the Advent Calendar,
For helping Neopians like you and me!
Everyday I go to that island,
The one Neopians call a mystery.
I go there just to play one little game,
And hope to go down in Neopian history.
I click on the hut and wait,
To see the man in the funny mask.
And as I make my way up to the front,
I hope to complete my task.
I cross my fingers and close my eyes,
And hope that this time I'll win.
I tell myself that if I don't,
I could always, of course, try again.
I stick my hand inside the box,
And pull the numbered ticket out.
I wait a moment before I look,
But if I won, I doubt.
The number is thirteen,
I get a boat that's just a carved wooden hunk.
I didn't win this time but now,
I have even more Tombola Junk.
Paint Brush Frenzy
I enter the shops and look in the stalls,
So many colors, can I have them all?
Red ones, blue ones, and desert ones, too,
Too many to pick, what's an owner to do?
I hit the bank and see what I've got,
It seemed like more, but really it's not.
I sit and I ponder, this dilemma I'm in,
How to paint my pet, where do I begin?
I start at the auctions, check out the deals.
Maybe I can bid on one, and get a meal.
I scope out the new ones, then do a search,
I start with the cheapies but I'm left in the lurch.
I find one that looks really good, lucky me,
I pull up my items and take a look-see.
I go to my Deposit Box and take out the best,
I'll offer the good ones and save the rest.
I make my offer and the waiting begins,
Then upon my screen a message comes in.
Sorry Neopian, this trade's not to be,
He found a much better offer, you see.
So back to the drawing board I must go,
This Paint Brush frenzy is my dearest foe.
Then what do you know, a present I'm sent,
I've just been the recipient of a random event!
Those shiny trophies
In someone's cabinet
So I ask,
"Mommy, why don't
We too have
Off we went
Try to Cheat!
And clear some Pyramids
Find the answer
For the cunning Lenny
And the Mystery Pic
Before the others do, too
Write an article
And a story or two
Draw a comic strip
And hope for publishment
Slay those invaders!
Win the battle
For defending Neopia
Earns more trophies or medals
Show the cocky Count von Roo
That we're Better Than Him
Be even cockier
When you walk away with a trophy
Spend hours just to
Defeat the evil Jahbal
Dress to kill
For that Beauty Contest trophy
Think up a caption
Draw a picture
Continue a story
Spiff up your site
At the end of it all
There are still lots to try for
And so here we are,
Writing a poem
'Twas the night before The Day of Giving,
And all through our NeoHome,
Not a sound was to be heard,
Well... except for this poem.
The Magic Socks were hung
At the Pharmacy with care,
In hopes that a sick Neopet
Would get his or her share.
The Aishas were nestled,
All snug in Bamboo Beds.
While visions of Hot Borovan
Danced through their heads.
And Bruce in his Santa Suit,
And I in my Santa Hat,
Had just settled in
For a long winter's nap.
When out in Happy Valley,
There arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my wooden bed
To find what was the matter.
Away to the Slushie Shop
I raced in a flash,
Pushed open the door
And found a Uni with cash.
"I need to buy a gift,
before daylight breaks.
I have enough for a Slushie
Which one shall I take?"
Silly old Uni!
I laughed, full of glee.
And handed her a Holiday Slush
And said, "This one's on me!"
I paid for the Slush
And we parted ways.
I sang out into the valley,
