I Am the Goddess of the Fall

Though the leaves may fall from the tree, mourn them not;
For I wear them as my crown, proclaiming their once-green glory
Into the white winter.
Unless I start feeling a bit peckish,
And then perhaps I shall nibble the leaves of the mighty maple tree
Which really aren’t that bad if you know how to prepare them.

Princess Pricklepants, Pirate Queen!

Now gather ’round, me swabbies, for we’ve got a tale to tell
‘Tis the tale of Princess Pricklepants, who ye’ve come to know so well

Seems she’s become a pirate queen and terror of the seas
Aboard the rogue ship Fisher-Price, to plunder as she please

‘Tis sender-inner Steven B. knows full her daring story
So go and read parts one and two, as she sets sail for glory

Pretty as a Pitcher

Let’s say you have a pitcher. You could fill it up with water
And drink eight glasses every day, like experts say you oughter
Or mix a batch of lemonade, for outdoor entertaining
Some sangria to just see ya through evenings when it’s raining
Hey, margaritas would be nice, they’ll make you briefly giddy
But for delight all day and night, just fill it up with kitty!

I’m Just Taking a Break

A carefree boy, a reckless lad, my day was off and running,
But oh! the bang-up wreck I had, I never saw it coming
So now I sit and convalesce, my joyful style is hampered
But I’m kept comfy while I rest; my human keeps me pampered
So pity me not, o kindly friend, this sorry state won’t last
Sometimes when you cast fate to wind, your fate’s to wind up in a cast.

The Legend of the Mermutt

Lads, pour me an ale, and I’ll sing ye a tale
Of a creature alluring that dwells in the deep
With a howl so charming it’s fairly alarming
One look in her eyes, and your soul’s hers to keep

We spied her one morning, with nary a warning,
When she flopped on the deck with the rest of our catch
For such a dishonor, we thought we were goners,
But the sweet little dear just wanted to play fetch.

Dreaming of You, Valentine

Dearest valentine, I love you so
Please be my love forever
I’ll hold your hand each time we sleep
And share our dreams together

You Nose I Love You

They look down their noses at us two
And say we’re too diverse
But dog and cat can share love true
For better or for worse

To me, our strange forbidden love
Smells sweetly as a rose
We may not see eye to eye
But we do see nose to nose

That’s a Wrap

Another holiday come and gone, another festive season
Again the houseful of in-laws and kids, running about for no reason
Mom burns the roast beef, Dad trips on the tree, Uncle Ed hits the egg nog hard
The electric bill rivals the national debt from the lights out on the yard
Steve home from college, lecturing all on privacy, taxes and climate
Cousin Alice brags on her weight loss last fall, just like last year, you can time it
They bicker and argue, and yet it all ends in warmth and kindness and cheer
So now all I all of you, family and friends, could someone get me out of here?

All Along the Watchtower

All along the watchtower, bite marks did appear
But who or what did put them there, we’ll never know, we fear
Outside in the cold distance, a puppeh’s tummy did growl
Suppertime was approaching, and the pup began to howl

Bunneh on Mah Head

Bunneh on mah head, bunneh on mah head,
A-pickin’ an’ a-hoppin’ as I walk the road ahead
I don’t need a mansion, don’t need a lot of bread
Just give me a gee-tar, an’ a bunneh on mah head.
