A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

A rootin' tootin' shootin' star

Travelled very, very far

From the Wild West of outer space

Until it found the human race


When he arrived he aimed for Earth

And falling unholstered his guns

Red hot spurs, a flaming tail

Shining brighter than the sun


What this meteor was here for

Was a good old fashioned fight

But in the atmosphere he shed tear

As burned up in the night


He'd let himself get too hot-headed

From the ground a beautiful sight

And that rootin' tootin' meteor

Never became a meteorite.

A farmer who crashed his old tractor

Found he needed a good chiropractor

His back came to some harm

While down on the farm

And faulty brakes were a very big factor

Featured Poem

Big T and the Piggies

Are a gang as tough as nails

Hairy and pink

They created a stink

And got themselves thrown in jail


Inside a one foot prison cell

Inside a cotton cage

Bound in leather

And tied with a knot

They were sentenced to sweat for an age


But now they’re free

They’re going to market

To fight a rival gang

On the mean streets

A pair of mean feet

Where Big T and the Piggies hang.
