Be prepared. Bring rat detergent

Applesauce and Coffee

On a lonely day,
I put applesauce in my
coffee. It was good.

Lion Country

The way I got there by
a motorcycle. My motorcycle died and I
walked a little. I saw it and I played
dead and it licked me so I
raised it.


Haiku about a moose

We sent a moose to Florida,
he came back and said hey, boy,
leave me alone please.

Ode to my pickle

I got my pickle from
The supermarket by Dillards.
I keep it in a hidden place,
In my room so no one can,
take it away from me,
And just in case some one finds,
The hidden place is they won’t,
Find it because I put,
It in a sock to hide it.
It is lumpy and wet,
And now so is my sock.
