Old Mule and the MermaidOnce upon a time, there lived an old MuleOld Mule and the Mermaid21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
down by the dA sea in a bamboo shack
on the beach under the coconut trees.
He and his old Cats were enjoying
their golden years wild and free
as their old bones would let them.
Eating and sleeping away their days
in sweet lethargy.
Come sunset old Mule would go out on his dock
and fish for comments and rhymes for his Cats.
Watching the changeable moon and circling stars
he would listen to the wind and the waves.
Some nights were all too quiet with no bites at all,
the shy nibblers stealthily stealing his bait,
he would just sit and dream.
Other nights the comments were jumping
right on to the dock. There would be buckets
full of rhymes for his old Cats!
And on special nights by the light of the moon
mermaids would swim by and sing him songs
about treasures in the depths of the dA sea.
Flirtatious creatures they were,
trying to lure him in and steal away his catch.
But old Mule was wiser than that,
his ancestor once knew the Queen of Faeries!

They never stop fighting in their fortress wailing in pain
Because of her server sticking out of upgrade

"Foxiest Thing Alive" - A Parody of "Fastest Thing Alive"
I can see the wall
There's an animatronic
Comin' down the West Hall
He's left Pirate Cove
Bit off someone's frontal lobe
He wants to stuff me in a suit
Can't let Bonnie mess up the door
Or Foxy will lean in
I'll see him runnin' at me
Then I'll hear him screamin'
He's comin' for that booty
There's porn of him oh God
Everybody thinks he's hot
A lot of people want the knot!

Exactly the same as the right,
Yet somehow less useful,
The right with it's flawless motions
It's quizzical eyebrow raise
Shows distress, judgement, and all associated emotions
The left's eyebrow raise is monstrous
It raises eyebrows on others,
wondering if I had a stroke
or just forgot how to wink
