Maya Used to Be So Small

(A silly poem for a silly kid I know.)
 
  

Maya used to be so small.
Now she’s over six feet tall!
 
Wait! That simply can’t be true!
Maya’s only one-foot-two!
 
I messed up, I must confess:
My math skills are such a mess.
 
Here’s the way we will make sure
Maya’s legend will endure:
 
Measure Maya with a tape,
Fit her with a hero’s cape,
 
Not too short and not too tall.
Maya will defend us all,
 
Keep us safe both night and day.
Thank you, Maya—and hurray!

The Weird Neighbor


The weird neighbor down the street
Glued some golf balls to his feet
And sprinkled rancid raisins in his hair.
  
People couldn’t help but laugh
When he bought a green giraffe
And taught the beast to dance—it’s true, I swear!
  
Then things started to get worse
When the neighbor drove a hearse
And carried living people to their graves.
  
So the neighbor’s now in jail
With no hope of making bail—
Unless, of course, it’s true that “Jesus Saves.”

The Tomcat


My neighbors’ old grey tomcat visits me each day.
I feed my neighbors’ tomcat when they go away.
The neighbors are quite grateful. The tomcat? Not so much.
He flicks his tail and glares at me near the rabbit hutch.

Blue Monday: Is There a Mouse in the House?

Photobucket
An abandoned house, Zacatecas, México.
 


In a tiny little house
Lived a tiny little mouse
And the mouse didn’t have a crumb to eat.
 
So she made herself a plan
To bake cookies and a flan
’Cause a mouse (as we know) likes food that’s sweet!

Kindness


Kindness can’t be overrated;
With it no one’s ever sated,
For by kindness we all live—
Getting it, we want to give.

Blue Monday: Cactus Garden

Cactuses line the pathways at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Underneath a cloud-free sky,
I can’t help but wonder why
Cacti grow so tall and true,
Nearly brushing all that blue.

Blue Monday: San Francisco

Over the city the sky’s a deep blue;
Listening closely I hear pigeons coo.
People sip coffee as they walk along—
The sound of their sipping makes a great song!

After the Party

A table decoration lies aslant after a sweetheart dinner at an Arizona church.
  


After the party where love was the theme,
After dessert (it was peaches and cream),
After sweet songs of romance filled the air,
How glad I am, love, that this life we share!

Nada, Nothing, Zero, Naught


Xenophobic man, begone!
Racist, do not linger on!
Usurer, give back the cash
Purloined from the poor man’s stash!
Lying? Stealing? Not OK!
Pussy grabbing? Oh, no way!
How much should we tolerate
Of your spewing lies and hate?
Nada, nothing, zero, naught!
May your reign end, may you rot!

Blue Monday: Plaza

IMG_5320
The plaza in Ajo, Arizona is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
 


There’s blue in the flag, and blue in the sky.
Palm trees will crumble to dust bye and bye.
 
When the dust settles, all will be well,
But in the meantime? It’s hard to tell!
