A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

There is a legendary dairy

That they call the Legend Dairy

Where a friendly maid might just spare ye

A tale quite extraordinary

 

From immortal cows, like bovine gods

Who have seen it all while chewing the cud

And swinging tails forever in fields of mud

Lowing tales of battles, of fire and flood

 

Mooings that are then recorded

Translated, edited, and re-ordered

Until libraries of legends have been hoarded

Printed, bound, and names accorded

 

To them in a dairy where all udders are free

From any milking machinery

Because it’s the brains that are milked for their memories

What they have seen, are seeing, and will see

 

It’s where the milk of the bovine mind is

Extracted with some human kindness

From the legendary maids who are the minders

The legends’ keepers, sharers, and their finders.

Limericks

A girl who once chewed too much bubblegum

Found that her habit was troublesome

Blowing bubbles so bloated

She hovered then floated

To a space telescope – the Hubble one!

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.
