was bitter and fierce;
her temper was legend,
her shrieking would pierce.
Her jabs kept on jabbing,
her stabs led to tears.
Martha the mermaid
was scowling one day.
The other merfolk
said, "You cannot stay!!"
So she went for a swim
in search of new prey.
Martha the mermaid
discovered a place,
twas peaceful and calm;
No strife, not a trace!
She charged up her fury
and donned her mean face.
Martha the mermaid
hand chopped all the plants!
She poked the cucumbers
and stoked her best rants!
The jellyfish scattered
and soiled their pants.
Martha the mermaid
was proud of her mess.
The dirt was unsettled,
the reef in distress.
But wait! there was one
who frowned in excess.
The fish glared at Martha,
displeased with her show.
His anger, it boiled.
His fed-up, it glowed.
Great chunks of coral
collapsed from his throes.
Martha the Mermaid
was duly impressed!
She found her true equal
in spreading duress.
She smiled and she waved
and then she addressed:

far from humans have been,
lives a family of owls
content and pristine.
Mother and Father sit on a branch,
watching their little ones,
flutter and dance.
Soon they will grow
take flight and explore
see all of the world
up, up, they will sore.
As day starts to break
they huddle together,
beaks nestled in close
under cover of feathers.
TBH - Serious Poem I criedSerious <s>Shakespearean//shot </s>Poem *bow*TBH - Serious Poem I cried3 weeks ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
By Ryou Shuuya
Oh Destiny! Why do you play with me?
Why do you erase my memory?
Why did you invite me to the wild
and manipulate me like a child
Push me onto the bushy dark
Forced me to eat bugs and barks
Oh Destiny! I wish to come back.
To the blue and white walls my soul lacks.
To the pink maiden I dream of
Whom I remember that I will always love
Oh Destiny. Bring back my memories please.
I wish to live in the past I am ever so pleased.
Not this present, ever so hard to sleep in.
Knowing there is something I am forgetting.
Although it's so very strange..
That I can't think of anything rhyming with strange
Maybe drainage? Maybe Orange?
Rhyming is hard. I'm not a poet nor a sage!
But it IS very strange
I have traveled a great deal of mileage
But my mind remembers having two owners...
I can't remember... Can't help but become a frowner
But I wish to come back!
To remember the smiles which my soul lacks
To remember the love and ha

Finds herself in a long hallway of doors.
On a table there is cake and drink.
Magically able to both grow and shrink.
Crying out,she began swimming in her tear pool.
At shore and found a caterpillar on a toadstool.
Meets the Cheshire Cat at the Duchess' house.
Invited to party with the Hatter and Dormouse.
Paints white roses red for the Queen of Hearts.
Plays croquet and off to a new path she starts.
Comes across Gryphon and Mock singing of soup.
Off to see the trial of The Knave in a court group.
Called as witness and all the cards attack her.
Reality is woken up and comes back in a blur.
Entered in with a mind of a child.
But maturity had her reconciled.

The girl sneaks up the stairs
She gasps and hesitates in fear
She lets out her breath and continues
She's made it to the attic
Are you there?"
She softly calls out
"There you are kitty!"
"Now you can have dinner!"
Someone's coming up the stairs!
Don't be seen
"Sweety, are you up here?"
I'm in bed,"
"Dear, why are you up here?"
"Honey, don't cry,"
Don't make kitty leave!"
"Oh, honey! I won't, I promise!"
"You really won't?
You can come out!"
And the cat in the attic had a home.

You chase the rabbit down the hole
You're lost in a world of your own design
Where madness lurks with creatures malign
Your sanity has dissipated
But your lust for what's fake shall be sated
Think not of the world which you've left behind
But of your future, trapped in your mind
Hold a conversation with the grinning, striped cat
Because we're all mad here and you can't change that
Though be quick with your troubles, he won't stay long
But while he's visible, he'll help you with what's wrong
Have you ever had a tea party quite like this?
I'm sure you've noticed there's something amiss
Has it occurred to you what is happening?
Can you escape this twisted realm of imagining?
My precious child, you are lost
You won't escape without a cost
Have you yet met the Red Queen of Hearts?
I wouldn't, lest you be torn apart
Run, lost little girl, run away for your life
Go back to your world of sorrow and strife
Leave this place, this wonderland
And return to your life, s

Little Sasha is a rascal
and I won’t forget to mention
no matter how much you pet her
she always wants attention.
I’m not allowed to hug Othello
Or even to pet Jack,
Not without her getting jealous and trying to shove them back.
When you leave for a long time
she really misses you.
She’ll show it by jumping high
and she won’t stop kissing you.
She’s not at all afraid to get up in your face
and hide your stuffed animals
lest they be all over the place.
A thing I’m certain of is
out of all the 3
she’ll always want to play with you the most
unless you’re in the same room as auntie.
Othello is a smart dog
he knows a lot of tricks.
He poops out giant logs
and is stingy with the licks.
Right paw, left paw, sit, jump, and stay,
are just a few of the tricks he’ll listen for you to say.
He thinks he’s a small puppy
he likes to lie on you and cuddle
but later in the night he sprawls out like a puddle.
If you play with him just on

Moi suis je héroïque
Le comble de l'histoire
Il est dans ma mémoire
Menace pour les anciens
Et ami pour les miens
Pour eux, incapable
Pour moi, incroyable
Genre machine volante
Mixte de dinosaure
Un magnifique trésor
Grrr! Fumées ardentes
Caractère de dragon
Conseil: Vas prendre l'air
Tu es autoritaire
Tu augmentes le ton
Je sais c'est peu banal
Au profond écoute-le
Observe puis maîtrise le
Il te reste loyal

Let them fly forever.
Whiping in the wind,withstanding all.
The emblem's of the many people.
They are hailed time and time again.
And their nation's hold them high.
Waveing in the winds.Covered with blood
and smothered in war's.
They stand against it all.
Let the flag's rise.

No worries, just come in!
Your desperate knock
and rain-soaked frock
are begging you, come in!
Ignore my growly tone,
its comfy in my home!
There's paper dolls
and woolly shawls
and chocolate ice cream cones!
But wait! There's so much more!
There's hop-scotch on my floor!
Come in and see
fun books to read.
For sure you'll not be bored!
I'll give the knob a turn,
but don't you be concerned!
Do not surmise
my reptile eyes
are menacing or stern!
And disregard that smell
I do not cook so well...
My pickled eggs
they grew some legs
and on the floor they fell!
I'm opening the door,
a crack and nothing more!
Helloooooo, my friend!
Wait!! Don't run away!!
