I saw a hit-and-run
So I called 911.
The police were not impressed
At the baseball contest.

Cold Feet

My toes are so cold
I must put on double socks
Or go in the house.

Missing London

Don't be a rube and take the tube.
Be a good chap and mind the gap.
We'll grab some grub at the local pub.
Crumpets and tea for you and me.

A Feathery Mystery

It's quite a mystery
Who would do such a thing?
There are signs of fowl play.
Feathers are everywhere
Fox in the chicken coop
Knocked out by the rooster.

Monster Jam (part 2)

"What do you mean there are no guitars?"
Monster trucks are at
Monster jam.

Peter Peter Remix

Peter and his wife
Had a very nice life.
They lived very well
In an empty pumpkin shell.

I'd like to respectfully request
A different place to protest.

What could you call a type of unlicensed dog?
An illegal beagle

Water Cycle Poem

When water disappears, that's evaporation.
When water reappears, that's called condensation.
When water falls from the sky, that's precipitation
Now you know the water cycle, by my recitation.

*In honor of National Weatherman's Day

Shadow or Not?

Will the groundhog see
His shadow or not?
Will it be cloudy?
Or will it be hot?

February Loves

February loves chocolate and flowers
Hearts and lacy cards
Dropped into decorated boxes.

February loves best friends
New friends, old friends
And secret admirers

February celebrates love.
