BLUMAROO DAY SPECIAL
Hour of the Deadly Dice
A chill wind blows across the trees,
They scratch the sky above,
Creaking, always back and forth,
Around a stoney cove.
A castle, old and built of stone,
Decayed from years of wear,
Alone in darkness, cloaked in shadows,
Who could ever live there?
I step inside, pet close behind,
A chill runs down my spine,
For there among the shadows floats
A pair of glowing red eyes.
A strange Blumaroo bounces out,
A wicked smile he shares,
He bows down low and gestures inside
With the pitch black cape he wears.
"Welcome to my humble home,
I fear it's cold as ice,
But maybe a game will warm you up?
How 'bout a roll of my dice?"
And with that line, the sky lights up
Afire with lightning's flare,
I know I shouldn't, but what's to lose?
I decide to take the dare.
I take the dice in shaking hands,
What harm could it do?
Tossing them down, we watch them roll,
Landing on 6 and 2.
"Not too bad," he says with a smirk,
Then takes the dice himself.
He shakes them wildly, back and forth,
A system he knows so well.
I hold my breath and he launches the dice,
Transfixed as they hit the floor,
It seems they'd never stop their roll,
When finally... 5 and 4.
My Eyrie besides me twitches and shakes,
Her eyes, they seem to dim.
What have I done to my poor Kizrah
By playing dice with him?!?
The Blumaroo, he cackles loud,
And turned to me and spoke,
"My Deadly Dice have their price,
I assure you, this is no joke.
"For when you took my dice, you see
And took the chance to roll,
And when you lost to my better luck,
A level of your pet's I stole!!!"
His laughter filled the shadowed room
And shook the old stone walls,
I heard it echo far and wide
Through passageways and halls.
I look at Kizrah, weaker now
Because I lost the game,
I scooped her up and fled at once
Never to return again...?
The Robo Blumaroo
Once there was a Robo Blumaroo
That was made of tin armour in metallic blue,
It stood in one corner of a modest shop
Gathering dust from bottom to top.
And then there came a Skeith named Billy
Who was very spoiled and awfully silly,
He gawked at the robot with eyes gleaming,
In a matter of seconds, he was smirking.
He screamed at his owner, a gangly boy,
"Hey, Alan, you've got to buy me this toy!"
Alan grumbled and let out a resigned sigh,
And kissed his Neopoint hoard goodbye.
At their house, Billy climbed up his bed
He pushed the button behind the robot's head
Its ears started wiggling; its helmet glowed,
It said, "From Skeiths, I shall protect your home!"
But when Billy clapped his paws in delight,
The robot beeped, "Skeith detected.
Prepare to fight!"
It reached out its arms and tickled his tummy;
"Hey, stop it!" Billy yelled,
"I bought you, dummy!"
But the robot said, "I'll tickle you all day."
So Billy jumped out the window and dashed away.
Alan beamed as he watched his pet run,
He told the robot,
"Having you around sure is fun!"
Finding Himself - A Blumaroo Tale
Bob the bouncing Blumaroo
Had some talents, quite a few.
But what he knew how to do best
Was to lose his way while on a quest.
One fine day, he hopped along,
Humming a short familiar song,
Seeking treasure for King Roo,
Who promised him a gift or two.
Through distant lands he sped on,
Guided by a map so wrong,
That Neopia Central looked to be
Just beside the isle of Mystery.
A misled turn, alas, he made,
And saw a luscious rich green glade,
Peace and quiet drifted by,
Buoyed by nature's magical might.
Between the trees a faerie grinned,
And beckoned him to come within,
Into her home of garden bliss,
Where scents of blossoms filled the mist.
The gold and jewels that he seeked
Were never found or ever seen,
Yet happy was this Blumaroo,
Who discovered the joy of gardening blooms.
A Jester's Tale
The Court Jester trembles,
As King Skarl looks on,
Of moments like this,
He is never too fond.
The jokes he prepared,
He knows are no good,
Like all other days,
Skarl's in a foul mood.
Sweat beads glisten,
On this Blumaroo's head,
As he feels not good feelings,
Like horror and dread.
He blurts out his first joke,
And nothing is heard,
Except for the distant
Coo of a bird.
He stutters the second,
King Skarl turns red,
Jester thinks he detects
Angry veins on his head.
The final joke awaits,
and Jester knows what will come,
If Skarl does not laugh,
His job is more than done.
He tells his third joke,
Eyes closed tight,
Does he hear what he thinks he hears?
It's possible, he might!
The King is laughing!
He is filled with delight!
And for yet another day,
Jester has overcome his plight.
Count Von Roo
Within the darkness of the night
Are Neopians filled with fright,
For vampire Count Von Roo
Has been waiting for you.
When out and about
Instead of in bed,
You will be his meal...
Until he's well fed
Merciless and hungry
The dark Blumaroo is,
Making everything his.
So watch the sky,
He may glide by,
Looking for a snack,
Or a lightless sanctuary
