Bruce Day Special
Bruces here and there.
Bruces are everywhere!
Some have one.
Or some have a ton.
With so many colours to choose.
Whatever you pick, you really can't lose!
We'll start with a Baby Bruce with a big red bow.
Or Royal Bruce with lots to show.
Maybe Polka dot, with lots of spots!
A Faerie Bruce with wings to spare,
or A Disco Bruce with a lot of flare!
There's also the Wraith Bruce, with that enticing glare.
Or a Mutant Bruce, with that longing stare.
The Strawberry Bruce looks good enough to eat.
And the Chocolate Bruce, sure looks like a treat!
There's a Snow Bruce, that sure looks cold.
And an Elderly Bruce, that sure looks old.
Even a Dimensional Bruce, that is very, very bold!
A Plushie Bruce that looks up for a cuddle.
And an Ice Bruce, that I hope won't melt into a puddle.
The Skunk Bruce might not smell so nice... And the Invisible Bruce, you'll have to look for twice.
That's not even all the colours that you could paint.
With 63 in total, you can't disagree, you might even like one that looks like a tree!
So head on over to the Rainbow Pool, with your Bruce in hand.
Then you will understand why...
There are Bruces here and there.
Bruces are everywhere!
Some have one.
Or some have a ton!
Weltrude, a Bruce, Beyond the Park
She was gentle, they said, though not genteel:
a lowly lady with a chirp too quick.
She’d set a biscuit beneath your nose
With an upturned beak and a funny shriek
Insisting you indulge, for once.
They rarely really saw her, the Bruce beyond the park.
Every new neighbour—she’d invite them once
For high tea in a low-lit cottage.
She was gentle, they said. For they’d only
Seen her then, feeding them cakes
And then wishing them well.
She was gentle, they warned
With a poor-dear frown. She
Bothered with Petpets of fur and feather,
Bothered with feed and food and affection.
She was gentle, they said, though not genteel:
To bother with Petpets was
To bother with folly.
She’d nest them in her apron lap,
Singing of life that awaited them still.
She was lowly, they coughed, when she found her fame.
She bothered with Petpets and bothered with risk;
Her helpers were legion, but her fervour divine.
She was lowly and gentle
With a winsome wink.
She bothered with leagues and protection
With feed and affection
With gentle creatures and life abound.
Silver silly flappy feet
A little wiggle of the beat
Flippers flail wildly
It's hard to put it mildly
A pretty little bow around a neck
Even if the fun is kind of a wreck
Chubby little dancing frames
Silly types of fun-time games
It's okay to be bold
Living in such breaking cold
and shaking over notes of gold
Excitement in the air
Terror Mountain is a frozen fun-fair
I'll say it now and again
Let the last Bruce standing win!
The New Snow Bruce
The wind blows cold
With swirls of Icy Snowflakes
Floating throughout Happy Valley
Fluffed up snow
They look like Bruces, ya know?
A long draped scarf
Almost as blue as snow
It comes to life
With a ribboned brush
That coloured it so
This Snow Bruce,
Is good to go
Big charcoal eyes
Gazes at the life in the valley
Lines for the Advent
And slushies, add it to the tally
Of goals and wishes
Places to see
This new Snow Bruce
Is just like me
We were all new once
Oh, how long ago?
Let's share this time
With a new Bruce friend
Whether Snow, Striped, or Plushie
You're sure to be lucky
Now this Snow Bruce
Is off to explore
To find a place
They can call home
To laugh with a Cup of Borovan
Maybe a glass of Neggnog or two
To celebrate the Holidays
Bringing gifts from me, to you
A Bruce Day Celebration!
The browning leaves fall from the trees,
Autumn has its last morning.
The winter snow begins to blow,
so ends the month of Storing.
One month departs, a new one starts:
The month of Celebrating.
Pets wait for Bruce to introduce
new tips for decorating.
The fallen snow lets all pets know
the Bruce will soon come play!
They'll bring their toys and other joys
and sing from day to day.
Down the ice, past fairy lights,
the Bruce skate from their homes.
Dancing in sync in the ice rink
where it's cold enough to roam.
Even Bruce in deserts put forth the effort
to come see snowy nights.
Though they may roam, the cold is home
and there's no great sight.
So jump and cheer to end the year
with these great pets of ours.
I'd walk a mile to see one smile
'cause they're all superstars!
Bruce's Wizard Outfit
The mages and wizards in every tales
Wear a unique outfit which rarely fails.
A tall, pointed hat with a big brim,
A long, grey beard, an austere, grim
Robe, and a plain, ordinary mantle.
They look wise, and can be good or evil.
If you’d like to try some different clothes
For your Bruce, using none of their bows,
Give a chance to the Bruce Wizard gear;
He will be the best sorcerer of the year!
His gnarled, old staff made of wood
Can alter things, depending on his mood.
Time to go to the Uni’s Clothing store;
There are so many pieces to look for!
The shopkeeper can help your Bruce choose
The right size for each, even for the shoes.
A new mage is born and the town now leaves
Seeking adventures in which he believes.
Bruce: The Best Dressed Neopet
Do you need help with getting the job you want?
Or to look swanky at your favourite haunt?
Do you want heads to turn when you walk by?
Then call up the best dressed neopet:
A Bruce, and he will begin to advise.
Didn't you know,
A Bruce is the best dressed neopet year round!
A perfect little bow at his throat,
His feathers gleaming- not a speak or a mote,
His eyes have a twinkle,
His clothes never a wrinkle,
And walks with a slight waddle,
But not slow enough to dawdle.
If you follow a Bruce's advice,
You will look more than just "nice",
The Uni Faboo will save the best clothes for you,
At the concert hall you will be the first one through.
Here is to the neopet Bruce!
Who always looks spruce.
Hilda the Hedgewitch Bruce
A squat flurry of force
curled splintery staff bashing.
All you’ll see is a plum wide-brim hat,
Cauldron champion, shuffling back, forth
flurry of sparks blue, gold, green
as her massive hat dances, weaves,
her pet Naalala nipping at heels
a transfixing blur of colours, magic; confusing.
Now: battle over, sighing.
Waving her staff still,
and lights flicker, dance, flip
as horizon’s perspective inverts.
Warm stone cottage,
buttery cookies, blueberry scones
on flowery, yellowed white plates with crumbly edges
peppermint tea and hot coffee
wrapped in clay mugs.
joined the Red Erisim,” she says,
offers a plush emerald armchair.
The Grumpy Bruce
It is not common knowledge outside of Terror Mountain,
It is about an old Bruce,
Who spends his day at the fountain.
Neopians wave and wish him good day,
But he doesn't manage a single "hey",
Now it is the month of Celebrating,
And his grumpiness is quite grating.
When Neopians go to spread cheer,
He only glares and sneers,
When the young Neopians ask him to join a snowball fight,
He grumps and then waddles out of sight.
All the other Bruces in Happy Valley gathered around,
A solution needed to be found,
For it is unlike the nature of a Bruce to be grumpy,
Looking shabby and all frumpy,
Then the smallest Bruce had a plan,
Strangely enough it involved the mailman!
The very next day,
Grumpy Bruce was sitting at the fountain looking away,
The mailman stopped and gave him a letter,
It looked like a winter sweater.
"Oh Brucey so down and glum,
Come to our house to have some fun,
There will be coco or tea,
And we need your help to set up the tree."
The Grumpy Bruce went,
And it was a great advent,
He drank coco,
And ever so slowly- went away his woe,
He found out that neopians noticed how blue he was,
It gave him a pause.
After that night,
With Grumpy Bruce joining in a snowball fight,
His grumpiness melted away,
He is happy and glowing like a new day.
The Legendary Brucey B
Snow, ice skating, ski lifts, and Terror
Mountain—playing word association with 'Bruce',
but Brucey B was wearing a sunny tourist shirt.
I met him through a game of Cheat!,
while he was wearing that allegedly lucky coin
around his neck and accusing everyone. Arrogant,
I thought, but it was Branston
who bragged for him.
“Did you know he saved the Lost Desert?”
asked Branston, and I shook my head.
What was a Bruce doing in the desert?
I looked at my hand, ignoring Branston’s tactics,
and played three sevens.
Brucey B played four sevens.
“Did you really save the Lost Desert?” I said.
I couldn’t remember
who had really cheated.
