The Lonely Zafara
A lone little Zafara sat in the pound,
She was beginning to feel quite a bit down.
You see, she had sat there for quite a long while,
Her old owner had figured she wasn't his style.
She sat there for days,
and then months,
and then years.
Most of these days were ended with tears.
Why wasn't she wanted? What did she do wrong?
She hadn't felt loved in oh so very long.
Then one day, a young woman came by,
She's not looking for me,
the Zafara said with a sigh.
But much to surprise,
the young woman walked over.
She smiled and said,
"I think this is what I've been searching for."
And so from that day on,
things have changed greatly,
The Lonely Zafara remembers just faintly,
The days when she wondered what she lived for,
For the Lonely Zafara is lonely no more.
It's Time to Pick Your Own
I just stood there and waited,
Watching people grumble and groan,
They were looking at their bad berries,
As I waited for my turn at Pick Your Own.
I ran off to get some berries,
Around the Meri Acres Farm,
I stuck my hand into a bush,
And saw some dung stick to my arm.
I got to a very large tree,
I climbed it and hoped I would not get hurt,
I looked and found nothing up there,
But there was barbed wire stuck to my shirt.
I ran around but soon got tired,
I rested after I tripped on a root,
I stuck my arm into a bush,
And pulled out a smelly old boot.
Time was running out for me,
I made one last chance for food to eat,
I reached up high into a tree,
And pulled out a Voidberry, sweet!
It just must be worth millions!
Or a at least a thousand NP!
I check with the Shop Wizard,
And it's only worth 33!
Jelly, Jelly, Everywhere!
He heard the rumors.
He had listened to the tales.
But could it be true?
It had to be true!
There he was, standing right there.
His eyes were aglow.
A world of jelly.
Wobbly, orange, and tasty, too!
Come on, take a bite.
He bounced all around
on sticky orange trampolines
whilst he had a snack.
This world smelled so good!
It was tangy and sweet! Yum!
He wanted to stay.
He saw no problems.
What could possiby happen?
This place was awesome.
Out of the orangeness
there arose something quite blue.
It wants to eat you!
The Jelly Chia!
He ran as fast as he could,
but his feet were stuck.
"I wish I were home!"
The poor little Poogle cried.
He was getting close!
Suddenly, it came.
Flashing of lights and of sounds.
The new world was gone!
Where did it all go?
"It's time to wake up, sweetheart!
Did you like your nap?"
It was all a dream.
Thank goodness! But he wondered...
Will it come again?
Ye Old Round Table Gang
I was down a hundred,
And it's just the first round.
My hand was poor,
And my eyes searched the ground.
"I'm terrible at poker."
I'd always said.
But my sweet KittoRukei,
Just shook his head.
"Poker doesn't take talent,"
He repeated to us.
"It's the luck of the draw."
He just needed our trust.
I had money to spare,
but my wits were slim.
As I slid to the table,
With the lights all dim.
There were four different faces,
In that smoky card room.
I was sure at least one,
spelled out gambling doom.
To my right was Nigel,
Of Meridar fame.
He just smirked at me,
and muttered his name.
"Don't expect to beat me,"
he growled behind his hand.
"This table's all mine,
I'm the best in the land."
I swallowed and turned,
To the lady at his side.
She had a long lacy outfit,
And eyes that would slide.
Sure, she seemed kind enough,
But wouldn't you guess.
Her eyes shone in the pale light,
She was up to the test.
Beside her sat Joe,
A young peasant boy.
His clothes said he was poor,
But his eyes filled with joy.
He was a gambler,
Poor all the same.
And he looked more than ready,
To play the game.
At last I came to a friendly face,
Old Friar Asquith, a tiny monk Bruce.
In some poker game,
He didn't seem of much use.
He smiled at first,
But that look in his eyes,
Made me think to myself,
"Would some old Friar lie?"
My Silver Kougra, Icicle
In Neopia, where it's warm nor cold,
Lives a beautiful Kougra, I've been told,
Silver and Shiny, she's hard to compare,
Out of all the Kougras, She's most rare.
This kougra is little, but has might,
Keep her close when you sleep at night,
She lays around with nothing to do,
Until it's time to protect you!
Icicle the kougra will run and dart,
but this little kougra is really all heart,
So if you see her don't run away
Say hello and ask to play!
She darts around and swats the air,
then looks confused when nothing's there,
Pick her up and pet her soft fur,
Listen closely, and hear her purr!
Sneaking and Slinking down the hall,
To pounce upon a fluffy yarn ball,
Under the tables, around the chairs,
Through the rooms and down the stairs!
Sleeping all day and up all night,
Waiting to pounce and give you a fright,
She means no harm, just playing a game,
She's very lovable and quite tame!
Curled up, sleeping in the sun
She's worn out from having fun,
Chasing dust specks in the sunrays,
This is how she spends her days!
Today feels like a lazy day,
She doesn't even want to play,
She won't try to catch a mouse,
She will just lay around the house!
The midnight sun puts on a show,
For all the neopets below,
Under ribbons of shining light
Icicle hugs you and says goodnight!
