A Garden of Monsters

Larry, Larry is quite scary.
How do his monsters grow?
With zombies, ghosts and werewolves,
And vampires all in a row.

Are supposed to
Keep crows from the cornfield
Instead they become just one more
Fence post.

Who's Jack?




Has two eyes

And a glowing smile

I wonder why they call him Jack.

Happy Crows

The crows are happy.
Today is our garbage day.
The wind blew the lids.
They are rolling down the street.
Plastic bags are emptying.

Garbage Day

A family portrait on garbage day
"I thought you took the garbage out."
"Did you take the garbage out?"
"It's your turn." "No, it's yours."
"Here's the garbage truck
Emptying cans."
"Hurry, run!"
Too late!

Happy Birthday Poems of Silliness

Just one year ago
I started my goal
Of posting a poem
Every day this year
I have reached my goal

Black Cat

Black Cat
I'm not afraid
Stalking down the hallway
Chasing the shadows in the house
My pet

Bob the Vampire

There once was a vampire named Bob
Who wanted a different job
When he came to town
He was knocked down
And chased by an angry mob.

The Hacker

The detective spied.
The lawyer pried.
The criminal lied.

Noisy Flight

That boy is talking
twenty-four hours a day
Does he ever sleep?

A Monster Meal

I did not eat the chocolate cake,
The peach cobbler I did not take.
I did not steal the cherry tart
I know not how it did depart.
I did not munch the apple pie
I do not have an alibi
Don't ask me to stand upon the scale
Or I fear I will be put in jail.

Never enough
Overflowing every box
In the closets and the garage
My stuff is owning me.

Cackle, Cackle

Cackle, Cackle little witch
Drive your broom into the ditch.
Up above the world so high
Upon me I fear you spy.

crowded, noisy
rushing, honking, yelling
turn back the clock
walking, breathing, resting
empty, quiet

Greg, the One-legged Monster

There once was a monster named Greg
Who jumped on a powder keg,
And now he is missing a leg.

Way Before
The Alarm Goes Off
I wish I could go back to sleep.

Picture Day
In our best
Trying to look better than
Really need
Extra patience
Done for
Year (Whew!)
