Heed The Warning: The Black Pawkeet
Wild and free, the trade winds blow,
Across the ocean, vast.
Crested waves do rise to peak,
Then melt to nothing, fast.
A warning to all those who pass,
And glance the ship in sight.
The Black Pawkeet does lurk nearby,
Dark sails like stormy night.
The terror of the endless seas,
So claim all pets, in fear.
The eerie flag seeming to cry,
"Argh! There be pirates here!"
A rhythmic rocking to the sounds
Of every hungry wave.
The ship to strike such brutal fear,
No matter if you're brave.
Man your crow's nest with great care,
And nerves of steel, keep hard.
Nothing but this warning here,
Can keep you on your guard.
The Witch's Tower
Double, double, toil and trouble
Edna cackles, cauldron bubbles.
Cape of black, and hair of green,
Mystic capers, gone unseen.
Spells are often gone amiss,
Too great alone to go dismissed.
Ingredients, the potion need,
Are often gone as well indeed.
"Go you twits, and find those things,
Scorchio tail, and Pteri's wings!
I need them for my greatest feat,
So hurry up, my magic's weak!"
She slams her door into your face,
Her broomstick falls down, out of place.
Run away and don't be late,
For Edna's wrath may seal your fate.
When Whack-a-Kass met Splat-a-Sloth
When Whack-a-Kass met Splat-a-Sloth,
(A fateful day -- alas!)
"Good day, my friend," said Sloth the sock;
"The same to you," said Kass.
Their greetings done, they talked a while --
They had a little chat
About their lives, and being smacked
With newspaper or bat.
"The thing that I hate most?" said Sloth,
"To see the player's face.
The smugness and delight it shows --
It's really a disgrace.
And sure, I don't exactly love
To be hit by that paper --
I wish I could take my ray gun
And turn them all to vapor!"
"You think you've got it bad?" quipped Kass,
"I'd like to see you try
To get smacked by a giant club
And hurtle through the sky.
And if you check your facts, my friend,
I know you'll surely find
That fewer people play your game --
Your hardship's less than mine."
They argued all throughout the day
And on into the night
About which one of them it was
Who faced the greater plight.
Then finally, when morning dawned,
And neither toy had won,
The battered plushies came to see
The progress made was none.
"Why, Kass, my friend," urged Sloth the sock,
"Let's not each other fight
But rather join 'gainst common foes!"
Kass thought, then cried, "You're right!"
"We're both abused," continued Sloth,
"But if we unify,
We'll be much stronger than alone --
That fact none can deny!"
"We shouldn't squabble," shouted Kass,
"It matters not at all
Which one it is who suffers more
(Although your quandary's small
Compared to mine) -- but never mind!
Let's share a common aim:
To wreak revenge upon those fools
Who smacked us in our games."
And so the plushies formed a pact:
Together they would seek
Those gamers who had hurt them so --
The strong would now be weak!
So if you happen to be one
Who foolishly did play
At Whack-a-Kass or Splat-a-Sloth --
My guidance: run away!!
Sands Beyond The Lost Desert
Cascade now sand as swirling storm,
Accent the sky dried up and drawn,
Set haunting mists that flicker yet,
Until the wind you cannot crest.
Wind now raid -- an acrid brew,
Tainted, unruly with course askew,
For woven paths are ripped and torn,
To harbour only winds of scorn.
For skies amidst this barren waste,
Host clouds that render no great haste,
But change appears as gusts revive--
Clouds now flow and are alive.
Beat sun that gives such harsh light cast,
Now lost upon this plain so vast,
For dunes austere and plants so few
Are all that brave the desert true.
Ride scourge of land as swarming beast,
Relentless bane -- you shall not cease,
But while so proud your powers wane,
For without wind you are but grain.
A Meridell Princess
In gardens lost amid lush glades
Where flowers dot the trees' long hair
And pools of light through branches stream
To fall upon the maiden there.
Her head upturned towards the sky
A pallid glow upon her face;
The gentle flow of golden locks --
A princess framed by silk and lace.
Her brow adorned by woven wreath
Of petals marked by placid hue;
The spark of sunlight in her eyes
That taints her gaze a depthless blue.
And in her stature a grace lies
Of one who in marble courts dwells;
The bliss of luxury and pride --
Of sandstone pillars and shrewd bells.
But in her heart a tension mounts
To leave her home of garish halls --
To tread beneath a starry sky
And stray beyond the castle walls.
