A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

If you should hear

A little Shakespeare

Perched on your shoulder

And close to your ear

Tweeting Iambic


And you turn to see

A bird in a ruff

Wearing a doublet

Of feathers and fluff

Writing about dreams

And other such stuff

A play for a flock

Of flighty bards

To be performed

In your back yard

A play full of jesters

Kings, queens, and guards

Then don’t try to catch him

For the play’s the thing

Allow him to be

And not not to be

Because a caged bard won’t sing.

There once was a ghost of a pigeon

Who was more dead than alive, just a smidgen

Whenever he'd coo

He only went Boo!

And could scare all the cooks in a kitchen

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.
