GET AWAY FROM MY OMELETTE!!
I am a Shoyru with a mission
Keep my omelettes in my vision
I found them sitting here today
I must keep all the thieves away
Predators around me sneak
Grarrls, Elephantes and Skeith
Trying to devour my snack
I must fight hard to keep them back
On the left and on the right
I just cannot give up the fight
I must never be defeated
Or we will not get to eat it
A Skeith appears, go grab a gun
Oh no, here comes another one
Now where's that Elephante-Be-Gone?
When will the morning ever come?
All night my omelette I defend
Until the sunrise comes and then
The kids will be here for their breakfast
I wonder which one they will like best
So, until morning, every sound
Reminds me I must stand my ground
I wish, I wish I had a net
HEY, GET AWAY FROM MY OMELETTE!!
I drew the perfect picture,
well, I though it was, at least.
I longed to have my image win,
and give many Neopian eyes a feast.
I drew the picture with confidence,
its colors vibrant in hue.
I was sure, that out of them all,
pics of this quality were few.
With a loving gaze, full of fondness
I painstakingly signed my name.
I gave it a title and sent it off,
anticipating fortune and fame.
But when the new images were released,
I saw, to my dismay
that my image had been rejected.
I just didn't know what to say,
Even though, the rejection was painful,
I will definitely try it again.
I'll draw a new picture, even better than the last,
and the picture, with a hopeful heart I will send.
Tower of Turnips
You've counted potatoes
and guessed the marrow,
Collected some berries in a small wheelbarrow.
"What now?" You ask as you look 'round the farm.
"Ooh I'll stack turnips"
as you reach out your arm.
A click of the mouse and you're ready to play,
But once you get started you'll be there all day.
How high can you go? How many to stack?
Once you get started there's no turning back.
Stack one, then two, three and four,
Don't be a chicken try to stack some more,
Five then six it's going great,
You'll be the envy of all your mates.
You click on seven as you close your eyes,
Wow you did it! Now that's a surprise.
Go on one more you just might win,
Giving up now would be a sin.
You click on eight, under the table you duck,
What's that? It stayed? Now that's good luck.
Go on, you know you want to stack another,
You click on nine and duck for cover.
Woohoo it stayed this is amazing,
Perhaps one more? It'll get your pulse racing.
You grit your teeth
as you choose ten from the list,
Hover the mouse then clench your fist.
One more turnip and you'll be wealthy,
All this staring isn't healthy.
Go on just try it you're doing well,
If you lose no one will tell.
As you click on the stack you let out a yell...
Oh dear, I'm so sorry, your tower just fell.
Double or Nothing
I read it in the news,
Of Snargan's brand new game of chance
and bets you can't refuse!
I stuffed my bag with Neopoints
to play a round or two,
Planned to have some "harmless" fun
'cause gambling's pure taboo!
I travelled much a distance,
To cheery Meridell,
And when I met that cranky Skeith
I lost ten points ... oh well!
But then my luck began to change
the more his coin got tossed,
At round thirteen to my dismay he said,
"It's tails you LOST!"
My blood began to boil at this rather dreary news,
Double or Nothing sure can hurt
when you've lost to a scrooge!
I'd put down ten more Neopoints
with plans of getting rich,
Several rounds had passed me by,
I had that gambler's itch!
And why so great you ask me,
To toss a coin or two?
'Cause once I get that winning streak
I'll buy me brand new shoes!
And what of my pet's fighting needs?
He could use a nova wand!
With news of threatening war about
could this be all that wrong?
Then I have another pet
who reads throughout the day,
If I could win that special round
more rare books then... Hooray!
And next my mutant Blumaroo,
His taste for food is shrewd.
If he's to eat those gourmet foods
I better win that loot!
Suppose you want to know by now
if Missko's pockets grew,
Well truth be told that getting rich
is rather miniscule.
I may have wasted all my points
but don't you all be fooled,
'Cause once I come back from the bank
another round or two!
Too Many Quests!
I was strolling through
The Haunted Woods
When I heard a cackle,
"Would you get these foods?"
I looked to see
An ugly old witch
Her hat was old and crooked
And her dress had an open stitch
"I need a banana,
And some hot soup too...
Throw in a bitten green apple,
You'd help an old lady, wouldn't you?"
I agreed, and set of for the quest
When I heard a shout,
"I AMM SOOO HUNGRYYY!"
The Esophager was about.
"I need... a Techo claw...
Two, in fact...
Well, don't just stand there,
Get to your act!"
I hurried off,
Looking at my lists
Then went to Tombola
To have a few risks.
But before I got to the hut,
Oh no! It was too late.
"I need a strawberry blend slushie
And a salmon steak!"
That Flotsam loaded me down
With all these ingredients
I started to walk away;
No, I started to sprint!
Finally I got to the coldness of the mountain
I wanted a snow puff to cool me down
But then I saw the Snow Faerie
Wearing her frown.
"I need a Fire Faerie,
And a lime elixir...
Come on, get going,
I want these this year!"
That was it, that was too much!
"I've had it!" I cried.
"Will you help me?" someone asked.
"No!" I furiously replied.
"Well then, no quests for 273 seconds!
Now, do you think that's nice?"
I whirled around and saw the Faerie Queen,
Her voice as cold as ice.
"Oh! Hi! Heh... heh... heh...
I'll gladly do your quest!" I said.
The Faerie shook her head.
"Go and do what other people request."
"Just because I am the
Queen, doesn't mean that I'm first!
You treat these other help-needing people
As if they are the worst!"
And that's the way
I learned to know
That helping is a way
To say, "I care, and you know!"
