Time for sleep

I sleep with one eye open, trying to get some rest

It doesn’t matter what I do, I’ve tried my best

Trees scratch on the windows pane, I think I’m going insane

Neighbors are home, kid is screaming, because he got a new drone.

I wish I could tell the kid off, but he’s not my own

I get up to make sure the window is closed

Back to bed, I’ll have another go

Five minutes later, the damn phone rings

I try to drown out the noise, but it won’t stop

I jump up out of bed and trip on my shoe

I’m laying on the floor, I yell “F You!”

I make my way to the phone, but nobody is there

I look at the phone, it was a blocked number

Phone is now off the hook, won’t be a bother

Next minute you know, someones at the door

Screw this, I’m going back to bed

I need my rest, before I…

I’m back in bed, with no distractions

Here I go, 1, 2, 3…

10 minutes later, I need to pee

Ode to Veruca

As I started thinking, of all the different candy that is made, it made me think of Veruca in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

So, this one is for you Veruca…

I want it now, I want it now!

It’s mine, It’s mine!

I want candy, all the time.

Peanut brittle, give me more.

Candy corn, here I go.

Bubble gum, yum yum.

Toffee and lollie’s, make me jolly.

Candy is yummy, sweet for my tummy.

I want Butterscotch and peppermint sticks.

Malted balls, that will do the trick.

More salt water taffy and cotton candy!

Jelly beans any kind, I don’t mind.

Carmel and gobstoppers, now I’m in trouble.

Feeling sick, darn those goobers and pixy sticks.

Oh my, what’s next?

No black licorice for me, but I’ll try a chocolate kiss.

I love Bon bons and white chocolate.

Peanut butter cups, are the best.

I forgot the rock candy, sitting in the dish.

Jaw breakers, might do me in.

I’m getting sick as sin.

Chocolate nuts and chocolate bars, I think I have taken this too far.

What’s that noise? Oh, its mom!

I have a candy wrapper stuck to my arm!

I jump in bed, sick as can be.

Mom comes in and looks at me.

What’s that smudge on your check?

Oh, I just ate one of my sweet treats.   😉

Spider has just claimed victory, on my old wooden chest…

I open the rusty latch on the barn door.

The moment I step inside, I feel sick.

I can see the old wooden chest in the corner.

I raise my hands over my head,

making sure I don’t run into a spider’s web

As the light shines through, it produces a new clue.

A web hangs in the corner of the barn.

“Are u scared?  The spider seems to ask.”

Why am I scared when it’s just a thread?

A design of beauty, with a deadly scare.

The closer I get, my heart beats faster,

Just another second, won’t matter.

Felling uneasy, with each step I take,

I get chills down my spine and sweat on my face.

The large web glistens up high over my chest,

I just can’t, I can’t take another step.

The spider has just claimed victory, on my old wooden chest.

Hugs for my sweet Winnie-the-Pooh…

Hugs for me… Hugs for you…

Hugs for my sweet Winnie-the-Pooh.

Scampering over the hills, with Winnie, Roo and Christopher Robin too.

Oh!  What fun we will have on this bright sunny day.

Come on Rabbit, let’s play!

Oh!  Where can Piglet be?  Is that Eeyore by the tree?

I am hiding behind the bush, hoping to be free, from a tag, so no one can see me.

What’s that noise I hear?  Its Owl in the tree!

Oh dear, I whisper, please don’t tell on me.

I run from my spot and go up the hill.

Hair in my eyes, I run into Roo.

Tigger comes bouncing by full of glee.

We must go find Kanga, to have a cup of tea.

Pooh says, “What about honey, instead of tea?”

Here comes Eeyore and Piglet, now I am happy as can be.

This day has been wonderful, with having all my friends to see.

Four and twenty blackbirds looking at me


I lay in bed tired as can be

I look to the window and what do I see

Four and twenty blackbirds looking at me

I must be dreaming, this I possibly can’t see

I open my eyes wide and sure enough they’re looking at me

I get nervous thinking of that bird movie on tv

I don’t mind birds, but just a few

This is obvious too many, what to do

I close my eyes again, to get a wink or two

As I turn over and open one eye

I realize it’s 3am and just a dark sky

No more ice cream before bed

I can’t handle these visions in my head

I got me a sticker…

I got me a sticker

I got me a sticker

Stick it on my wall, stick it on my doll

I got me a sticker

I got me a sticker

Stick it on my door, stick it on my drawer

I got me a sticker

I got me a sticker

Stick it on my book, come and take a look

I got me a sticker

I got me a sticker

Stick it on my moms car, I better run far…

I and my hoverboard up in the air…

Writing 201:  Poetry.  Day Ten: Future, Sonnet, Chiasmus

I and my hoverboard up in the air

My hover board comes tomorrow!

I can’t wait…

As soon as the package comes,

I will rip it open with a scream.

For I am the only one,  that will have one on my block.

The kids will be jealous, but I won’t care.

I and my hoverboard up in the air.

I’ll go to the store, maybe the mall.

Maybe to the drive in…

To score a hot dog.

I will keep my hoverboard under my bed.

Safe and secure, out of sight and out of reach.

Oh, the places we will go…

To the zoo, then the park.

Or maybe just riding it down my street, for everyone to see.

My lost sock monkey…

Writing 201: Poetry. Day Eight: Drawer, Ode, Apostrophe

My lost sock monkey

What’s in my drawer?

Let’s me see…

A copper penny and three candies.

My favorite purple scarf and my lost sock monkey.

Oh, where have you been?

I love you so…

Looked thick and thin and there you were.

Sorry, you were put in the drawer.

At least you were safe, from any intruder.

Now that I found you…

Up you go… Safe and secure.

My lost sock monkey.

His name is Herman.

Didn’t you know?

Soft and cuddly.

A site to see…

I love my sock monkey.

And I think, he loves me.
