KYRII DAY SPECIAL
Better Than You
The lights are all twinkling
The curtain goes up
Contestants are vying
Trying for the cup
A shiny gold trophy
Stating "Better than you!"
Before they can get it
There'll be work to do
Capara the Kyrii
In all of her beauty
Steps forth to the podium
Begins hosting duty
She flips back her hair
And flashes a grin
Bats her long lashes
Says, "Shall we begin?"
While the game's going
She's not paying attention
Capara's out back
Admiring her reflection
She's glossing her lips
And roughing her cheeks
Putting on perfume
From the Beauty Boutique
She brushes her hair
And smoothes down her dress
Applies some mascara
More is better than less
But the game needs its host
So she runs back on out
She listens in doubt...
The lights have gone out
The curtain is down
Contestants have gone home
Someone had won the crown
Capara just stood there
Looking around --
The studio is deserted
No one can be found
She packs up her make up
Her perfume and all
Puts on her jacket
Heads down the hall
Capara had learned
A hard lesson that day
Looks are important
But vanity gets in the way
Cheery Kyrii Day!
Behind that fiery mane there lies
Feminine wiles and crafty eyes.
The quickest hand that can't be beat:
That crafty Kyrii, Queen of Cheat.
"Watch your step with a bargain."
Capara grants you shrouded jargon:
"In this world nothing is for free,
Unless of course it's advice from me!"
"I've got an eye for the best deals,
My sense of smell finds the best meals,
My hearing can catch a tiptoeing Chia,
I've got the slickest hair in all Neopia!"
Kyrii are perfect pets to any new user!
"We're lucky! We're winners! Never sore losers!
We're very sharp dressers!
(Think Better Than You!)"
But Capara, why can't you get past round TWO?
"What is this, an interrogation?
I'm cheated, of course! Nasty situation...
I'll beat them someday! I'm biding my time.
Waiting until my game's in it's prime!
They'll think they have it, suddenly
They'll be giving me all of their NP!"
Capara, you've taught us all about Kyrii,
Their temper, their skills... volatile, yet cheery!
So on Kyrii Day relax, buy some shampoo!
Play Cheat, or even Better Than You!
Remember as the Kyrii's motto suggests:
"Always look and FEEL your best!"
The Island Mystic
To Mystery Island any knowledge-seeker goes,
Visiting a Kyrii with a bone in his nose.
A powerful mystic, he's said to be wise,
But ask his advice and you'll get a surprise.
"Your ability to eat
will alter without you noticing."
That's all he says, that's it for today,
With that strange advice he sends you away.
But you eat normally, just the same as before,
So the next day you head back
And ask for some more.
"You will accidentally discard
many Neopoints in Terror Mountain."
Terror Mountain? But how? That's miles away!
The Kyrii shakes his head, no more advice today.
His words are just crazy, he must be insane...
Still the next day you find yourself visiting again.
"You will be chased by several snarling Lupes."
Strange words again, this Kyrii's a nut!
Shaking your head, you take leave of his hut.
But wait, what's that growling
Over there in the bush?
A Lupe pounces out, and you leave in a rush!
Chased all the way to Terror Mountain,
You trip, lose your money, and end up in pain.
Now in the Neopian Hospital, with no appetite,
You'll see that the wise Mystic Kyrii was right!
Katie the Kyrii
Katie the Kyrii was of the messy kind
Her room was in shambles;
Not a thing she could find!
Wrappers and toys covered the floor
Clothes were in piles, way up to the door.
Her necklaces were tangled in a million knots
And her carpet had suddenly
Grown some green spots.
But Katie didn't care, well, not until now
Because the last straw was when
She lost her pet Gathow
Whiskers the Gathow had been Katie's best pal
She had never let out a scream or a growl
But now Whiskers was gone,
And Katie was in a fright
So she vowed she would do something
To make everything right
"Oh where will I find her
In this great big clutter?"
Cried Katie as she slipped
On some three week-old butter
Then she had an idea of the best:
She'd get busy and clean up this big mess!
Katie the Kyrii worked for ten days
Sorting and folding and putting everything away
Finally she heard a soft little meow --
Lo and behold, it was Whiskers the Gathow!
Whiskers had been hiding way under the bed
Afraid of the dust bunnies
And dirt that had loomed ahead
Now that the room was all nice and clean
Whiskers was back, and Katie absolutely beamed.
Now whenever Katie throws
A wrapper to the ground
Whiskers will make a small warning sound
And Katie will pick up the pieces of trash
And find a garbage can, in which to stash.
Katie is ready to clean up the earth
Because Whiskers taught her the valuable worth
Of making our space free of dust and smog
It's important for all, from a Gathow to a Bearog.
Capara the Cheat!-Playing Kyrii
Tired of playing nice?
Fed up with being good?
Capara plays the game Cheat!
Just like she should.
If she plays the cards right,
And lies here and there,
She'll beat out the others,
Who cares for being fair?!?
Here comes the first round,
The game is a foot,
Capara's hand is dealt;
She then looks at the loot.
This is high stakes,
A lot of points riding on this game.
For her to lose out early
Would be such a shame.
The game starts to pick up pace,
The cards are flying,
Capara keeps her cool,
And she continues the lying.
Branston breaks a sweat,
His hands are shaking.
He plays three cards,
But gets caught in his faking.
It's coming down to the last few,
The rest up and left.
The points are beginning to pile up;
It's a lot to heft.
New opponents take their seats;
They get ready to play.
It doesn't bother Capara;
She knows she's here to stay.
Finally, the final round,
Spectre himself takes a seat.
Agent Hog looks around,
Not quite sure who to beat.
'Course Princess Fernypoo's there,
Looking her best,
Capara knows that they're good;
She's beaten the rest.
The game begins;
The cards are slowly passed out.
Capara's hand looks promising;
She'll win no doubt.
Spectre takes the lead,
Tossing pairs every round,
The Hog panics, then faints,
Falling to the ground.
Capara has only two cards left,
The end is near.
She glances at Spectre
And catches a glimpse of fear.
Capara plays two cards,
And whispers... two aces.
Everyone yells Cheat!
Terror on each of their faces.
Capara turns the cards over...
They recoil in alarm.
The Kyrii looks at them
With her feminine charm.
Spectre looks like he's sick,
So he sits in his seat.
"Capara, you're good...
And the new champion of Cheat!"
