TUSKANINNY DAY SPECIAL

Senator Palpus on Tuskaninny Day
By Zuziafruzia

Sitting in his regal piece of estate,
Overlooking the desert view, oh so great,
This Tuskaninny pauses for old times sake
To reminisce in the history he could partake.
A long time ago, when Coltzan was no ghost,
He quit the Sakhmetian Army and could boast
Of many coruscating golden medals he'd won.
He perceived them still glowing in the sun,
Spots of rust have accumulated with age.
"I should get that fixed with my current wage."
The first words he uttered this very day
Moved him to tears with nothing more to say.
His heavy green belly, jiggling, let out a roar.
"Where is that cook?" He looked at the door.
"They've all forgotten what day today is.
Important I was to developing this,"
He pointed out yonder to the swarming desert,
Nostalgia overtook him until his eyes hurt
From glaring intensely at the blinding light
That the scorching land seemed to invite.
"Principle before politics! I'll stand by
That always! Those other senators may lie,
But I'm not one of them and never will I!"
Before he could continue, someone replied,
"You're right, Senator Palpus! Forgive my delay,"
The hurried cook, smiling, set down a huge tray
Filled with the most delectable food
From all of Lost Desert; his saddened mood
Changed quickly into jubilance. The cook said,
"Happy Tuskaninny Day! Enjoy all this bread!"
She left him alone to enjoy his feast,
But before he could do so, he looked back east,
Over to Coltzan's Shrine and suddenly he heard
A faint voice he knew once speak some words,
"I haven't forgotten you, Tuskaninny, today!
Do not look so worried and dismayed!
My favorite senator you always were!"
Palpus perceived the King's ghost stir,
Rising over the sand, grinning at him that
Palpus had no choice but to take off his hat
And smile back, thankful for the event.
For the rest of the day, he was quite content.

Not A Ninny
By Mefaniel

If you travel the shores
You're sure to find
One basking in the sun
Simmering, sun-kissed, kind

Others swishing tails
Frolicking in the surf
Tickling with wet whiskers
Dripping fun since birth

Nibbling fish and oysters,
Tanning in the sun
Chillin' in the cool waves
Just to have some fun

If you adopt one early,
Start to train him as a cub
He's really low maintenance
No need to buy a tub

With just the right training,
He'll make a fearsome fighter
And visits to the Battledome
Are bound to make him lighter

Don't bother trying to keep dry
'Cause he so much likes the water
He's portly like a walrus
And friendly as an otter

Has a guess come to mind?
I'll get out my penny
As if you didn't know yet--
We're talkin' Tuskaninny!

Ice Sledding!
By Anjie

Amongst the polar peaks they hide,
The endless mountains, vast and wide,
Swiftly down the slopes they slide,
Laughter lilting with each ride.

A pastime they indulge and know,
To sled on freshly driven snow!

On shelves of ice they do recline,
Long tusks like ivory all shine,
A stand out part of their design,
A look that they alone refine!

A pastime they indulge and know,
To sled on freshly driven snow!

The bellow echoes through the ice,
A Tuskaninny call device!
The slopes to them beckon, entice,
No other realm would quite suffice!
A pastime they indulge and know,
To sled on freshly driven snow!

One by one they slide and slip,
Across each frozen peak and dip,
A rapid, hasty, freezing trip,
Until into the snow they flip!

A pastime they indulge and know,
To sled on freshly driven snow!

When ice doth melt into the sea,
They just relax, to some degree.
Awaiting with such endless glee,
The first signs of cold ice they see!

A pastime they indulge and know,
To sled on freshly driven snow!

The Great Senator Palpus
By Togepi_forever

As one learns their history,
Some things become quite clear -
Especially when we talk of those
Who lead our Desert dear.
Some will say 'tis Coltzan
To whom we should give thanks;
Others say Amira,
For her unwavering grace.
Some may say Nabile,
For her courageous deeds;
Others say her dear Jazan,
Who rode the great Nightsteed.

But I know that there is one
Who far outranks them all.
He may not be that powerful,
But he answers duty's call.

Our Tuskaninny General,
With skin of deep lime green.
Once protected with his sword,
And now keeps Sakhmet clean.

For he is our dear Senator,
He cares about us all -
As long as he is here with us,
Sakhmet shall never fall.

So should you see him in the streets,
Wish Palpus a good day,
And thank him for all he has done -
'Tis the general's way.

The Life of a Tuskaninny
By Tanikagillam

The sun had just set, another day gone by;
Oh, how the hours seem to fly!
The smell of the Sea, the taste of the salt;
Everything else comes to a halt.
Life is not there;
All that lingers in the air
Is washed away,
And the waves are here to stay.
Gone is the grass, gone are the trees;
Gone are the birds, and the bees.
The crash of the surf, the smell of the ocean,
Who needs all that other commotion?
Life is grand when you're swimming without a care;
So come enter our world - if you dare.
