SHOYRU DAY SPECIAL
Living With Rofal
Living with Rofal the Silver Shoyru
Is as irritating as it is fun
Never a moment dull or a quiet meal
And of manners, Rofal has none
He's the only male pet in the house
His three sisters find it hard to relate
You would think he would learn to behave
"I don't change," he'll just retaliate
Rofal is quite the grey brat
He neggs houses and sends prank Neomails
Sometimes he doesn't show up to Neoschool
But miraculously he never fails
In my house you will get up one morning,
Go downstairs and search for a bowl
He's eaten the last serving of Neocrunch
And replaced it with a handful of coal
Yes, Rofal is annoying at times
He's got being cheeky down to an art
But this mischevious young Silver Shoyru
Will always have a place in my heart
The First Maraquan Shoyru
"Oh, woe is me!" the Shoyru wept.
For days he'd neither ate nor slept.
Instead he sat awake and cried;
He bawled and groaned, he moaned and sighed.
The only thought within his mind
Was of the magic he must find.
This little Shoyru longed to be
A creature deep beneath the sea.
Alas, his wings and stubby limbs
Were simply not designed for swims.
Each day he sat upon the beach
And watched the water, out of reach.
One night he sat upon the sand,
Watching waves crash upon the land.
He would never, by those waves, be tossed,
But just when hope seemed all but lost,
A voice behind him began to sing,
Filling the silence of evening.
Behind him sat the water fae.
The Shoyru did not know what to say.
He simply sat, but could not speak.
And she said, "I know what you seek.
I have the skills to grant your wish,
So you can swim 'round like a fish.
Now hold quite still and soon you'll be
A creature deep beneath the sea."
The faerie held out both her hands.
The Shoyru fell upon the sands.
He tried to stand, to no avail.
He looked... he had a fish's tail!
"Oh, thank you--" he began to say,
But the faerie had gone along her way.
He flopped into the ocean's spray,
And swam in the depths till night was day.
The water gave him such a thrill,
That I have heard he's swimming still.
The Last Snack of Simon the Shoyru
Simon the Shoyru always ate too much
And rarely bothered with chewing and such.
He'd sit down at a buffet and wouldn't budge
Til he had consumed it all,
Even the asparagus fudge.
You see, Simon was always hungry,
A bottomless pit
And into his mouth he'd cram
More than one could possibly fit.
He rarely even stopped to breathe--
Only after each meal would
His lungs get a reprieve.
He wandered Neopia far and wide
On a neverending quest
To fill his bulging sides.
He had chomped through Tyrannia,
Maraqua and Meridell
He ate all of Jelly World
For his hunger to quell.
But nothing could fill Simon for long, it seemed
'Til he saw a sight that made his face beam
"All-You-Can-Eat" the sign did proclaim
And displayed too many foods to possibly name.
So Simon made his way into this place to eat
His bulk so large he couldn't see his wings or feet.
He ordered one of each thing
Pictured on the menu
And began his feast with a bowl of Mint Stew.
But as Simon finished stuffing down
The last of the meal
He began to get a sensation,
A pain most real!
It seems he hadn't
Chewed his Rock Candy enough
In his haste to cram his tummy with stuff.
That last piece of candy had stuck in throat
Even though the rest of him
Was the size of a boat.
And as poor Simon slowly turned blue
He'd finally bitten off more than he could chew.
And the moral of this tale,
As Simon now knows
Is that one should savour every bite,
And take it slow
You never know when
You might bite off too much--
Always concern yourself
With chewing and such!
Antikia Lighten sits in a tree
Singing a song to herself
She's humming a beautiful melody
Accompanied by a small Felf
Antikia guards a Health Shroom crop
The batch of the Faerie Queen
She perches herself upon the treetop
And searches with eyes that are keen
If she sees something that seems rather strange
She'll check it out just to make sure
That everything's fine, nothing should change
So the Health Shrooms stay powerfully pure
The Faerie Queen trusts Antikia so
And admires the young Shoyru's courage
The Health Shrooms are thriving,
Look how they grow!
It's something we all should encourage
And if by some chance Antikia tires
Of watching the harvest all day
Her voice will rise up just like a school choir
And she'll sing all her worries away
Antikia surely deserves recognition
A better guard cannot be found
Don't stand in the way
Of this great Shoyru's mission
He desire to do well is renowned
So if walking through the forest you hear
Her voice singing out through the trees
Be sure that you wave, but try keep well clear
Of the Health Shrooms that wave in the breeze.
The Story of Meela: From
The Book "Shoyru Surprise"
Meela the Shoyru had nothing to do.
She sat in the house, bored and subdued.
Then all of a sudden the doorbell did ring.
On the doorstep there was a strange tiny thing.
A homeless blue Kadoatie
In a cream-colored blanket.
He was crying and sad,
Meela just couldn't take it!
Meela was flustered and though,
"Well, this just stinks!"
So she brought him inside
Until she could think.
Well, all night long
The little Kadoatie did wail.
From lack of sleep Meela
Was turning quite pale.
She tried all she could
To make the Petpet stop.
But nothing she did
Helped one little drop.
The next day she asked all her close friends.
"How do I make this horrible nightmare end?"
Well, days went by and she had just enough.
She'd make a plan to get rid of
That loud ball of fluff.
Just what to do, she didn't quite know.
But no matter what the Kadoatie must go.
So she went to bed that night thinking of ways.
Tomorrow she would find a place
For this loud, noisy stray.
When the morning did come,
She looked all around.
Nowhere at all could the Kadoatie be found.
She started to search and hours went by.
Had he run away? She started to cry.
She looked all over town for her blue little guy.
He was nowhere to be found
No matter where she did try.
So Meela walked home, sad and depressed.
He was certainly gone, her little sweet pest.
She entered her house and heard a loud sound.
Her Kadoatie's wail... to the bedroom she bound.
In the room sat her Petpet, crying on the rug.
Meela snatched him up in a big sudden hug.
"Poor baby!" she cried
As she squeezed him tight.
"You must have been scared,
What a horrible fright!"
From that day on,
No matter how he did scream.
Meela loved her Kadoatie
More than any you've seen.
