CANDY BAR

It
Was
PAYDAY.

HERSHEY
Came in
To celebrate.

Sitting
Next to BIT’O HONEY
Spirited questions began.

Where do you live?
Can I take you home?
He asked, with SNICKERS.

MILKY WAY
And
Yes, she answered.

Reaching her apartment
The RED HOT night continued
HERSHEY’S KISSES intensified.

They
Did the WHATCHAMACALIT
GOOD AND PLENTY
.

Soon
They would have girl
BABY RUTH.

CAVIAR DREAMS

Caviar dreams
Of when
He was in a pond.

Caviar dreams
Of when
He was in a lake.

Caviar dreams
Of when
He in a river.

Caviar dreams
Of when
He was in the ocean.

Caviar dreams
Of when
He was in love with a mermaid.

He never dreamt
He would be
On a cracker.

BANANA SPLIT

The soda jerk
With boat ready
Begins his creation.

Two
Scoops
Ice cream, vanilla.

Covered
In chocolate and caramel
Syrup.

Flanked
On each side
Crushed pineapple and nuts.

Topped
With
Whipped cream and cherry.

For the finishing touch
Searching for the runaway
The banana split.

CHARLIE BROWN DAY

Knowing the truth
Choosing still to see things differently
Caution
Beware.

Blacker than black
Bluer than blue
Jaded
Yield.

Zigging
When we should have zagged
Zagging when we should have zigged.

Wanting the mountain
When reaching the hill
Looking down
There is only a rock.

Running fast
Living life to the fullest
Before
The world is pulled out underneath.

Absent minded
We can all be
Its just
A Charlie Brown Day.

NUT HOUSE

My name is Hugh Cash
My family and I
Just moved into a nut house
Crazy aint it?

Being well to do
Upscale
Affords us many opportunities
Therefore we hired hands.

A wall nut decorated our new place
Hazel Philbert became our maid
A hickory nut became our personal chef
A pea nut became our gardener.

Sometimes you feel like a nut
Sometimes you don’t
I am happy we are squirrels.

CRIB NOTES

Dear Mom And Dad,
I’ve only been here a few days
And things are happening already.

A girl
On one side of me
Cries alot.
A boy
On the other
Snores loud.

A lady in a white hat
Pokes me with needles
And she even put ink on my foot.

A man in a white coat
Comes around too
Checking me over.

Yesterday
A photographer came, flashing me with this thing
I smiled.

Please
Take me home soon
Or I’m running away.

Love,
Your
Baby
