not a new scenario

There once was a world resource bank
Where aliens would freely yank
Incredible shares
But the wealth for all heirs
Was lost and their planet did tank

The Bear

There once was an old man we called Harry
That felt all animals were quite scary
     When the big bear stood tall
     He did not move at all
For the bear turned to chase his friend Larry

meltdown madness

We might as well stamp license plates
Government work makes us inmates
When assigned tasks inane
In asylums insane
We'll search for retirement dates

February's final bonus

A prime-numbered day if years leap
Adds one extra cycle for sleep
This calendar fact
Keeps seasons intact
And discounts our rents that ain't cheap

The Problem with Leather

I once met a girl whose name was Heather,
whatever she wore ‘twas always leather.
It rained, it poured, we got all wet,
She said, “this leather smells like sweat”,
Before each date, she now checks the weather.

Reefs

Sunbeams, like kisses, touch the sea,
A hidden world bursts into glee.
Coral castles, grand and bright,
Hug the ocean floor, bathed in light.

they've ruined everything

Fantastic firms aka looters
Make polymers and are polluters
Their products break down
Spread all over town
They even serve plastic at Hooters

Train Tale

This small town is where I was born
The train comes through at two in the morn
As I near my last day
One last wish if you may
Engineer let me blow that horn

Emotions

A scientist, quite astute,
Studied emotions, both joyous and brute.
She found with a grin,
That emotions within,
Can erupt like a volcano, or gently compute.

pistachio pride

So often the nut meats we find
Experience life as a grind
So let's not spread
Their butter instead
Eat them whole on this day enshrined

Buttinski

There's a big Buttinski running around
King 'Mind Your Business' he should be crowned
On offense, he attacks
Good attitude, he lacks
He's digging a deeper hole in the ground

Those soon undertaking their trips
To the April 8th total eclipse
Will see the moon cover
The sun and discover
The hotel supply this outstrips

market share marathon

With takeovers bankers are set
But Capital One's is a threat
Owning Discover
As surrogate mother
Makes Visa and Mastercard sweat

Skipping Rope

The people all gathered they had such hope,
To see magic tricks, I’d shown to the pope.
I jumped and flipped and spun around,
They booed when I bounced up and down.
I was using my invisible rope.

less than human

While meds clear it as quick as can be
We fear having ADHD
Since feds put a lock
On our adderall stock
We're macaque or like chimpanzee

eggceptional mess

Alabama's court has gone wild
Their judge has dementia not mild
What's their new ruling
For Petri dish cooling?
The fertilized egg is a child

Growler for warn he let
All had a job and work for their keep

Jack's Favorite Cuisine

  
   Peanut butter, Jack’s favorite cuisine
   ‘Til he ate a sandwich that turned him green
      Jack overlooked one thing
      That gave his sandwich ‘zing’
   Pea was spelled ‘Pee’ ~ smelled like a latrine

No Transfers

   
    Our favorite teacher was in a fix
    History class had not one, but two Dicks
       Teacher felt she was screwed
       She knew it might seem lewd
    But she kept both Dicks ~ out of politics

He roots this is the finale
How long can she dilly dally?
He thinks she's quite cute
If in her birthday suit
Trump's sure to pollute Nikki Haley

The Fastest Girl in Town

   Jane was the fastest girl in her small town
   By age sixteen she'd been passed all around
      Jane went dancing one night
      Drank way too much, got tight
   Woke up next morn ~ a woman of renown

Presidents Day agenda

The Presidents Day urge to shop
Get to stores like on a bar hop
I'd visit them all
And splurge at the mall
But Amazon's my preferred stop

presidential fame crumble

Like cookies by legend Amos
This day's for presidents famous
The resident scoop
On such a small group
Makes us like an ignoramus

A Lion named Lou

 There once was a Lion named Lou,
 who thought he was tougher than you.
     He got into a fight,
     On the wrong night,
 and got beat by a kanga-kung fu!

February Bug

The bug is still here, that darn flu,
I thought I was over it, too.
	It suddenly came back
	and doubled its attack.
It had lasted one month, now two!

dough's dire existence

It's not a dessert-worthy treat
But something disgusting to eat
If not rightly mixed
Pin-rolled and affixed
Your pie crust will taste like concrete

Just Thinkin'

Some folks have memory lapse now and then

   Seems the prez has 'em again and again

      'Tis more than we can endure

         So may I propose a cure

            Less ice cream and a dose of Prevagen

O dear, Chanticleer

   Now that so many folks work remotely
     He crows and he crows
     But at heart he knows
  You sleep late ~ bye-bye job security

Time to meat

To fill sausage links takes some stuff 
Slow-cured in moist air it's not tough
We always savor 
The paprika flavor 
Since pork salt and wine's not enough

There is a girl known as twinkle toes Who is dancing wherever she goes She’s the sequin queen Shines like a sunbeam Such a shame the girl sports a hook-nose.

journey to enlightenment

The anti-Darwinian portal
Pass through and your soul's immortal
This fills church coffers
Without refund offers
And that's why priests seem to chortle

Fever


There was once a driver
Infected with yellow fever
Who passed it on to his woman
And she to the barman
And they all came down with a fever
