Unfortunate ThingUnfortunate Thing7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Here is the tale of Unfortunate Thing
Whom I found in our garden shed
Hes seven foot two, with shiny black nose
And horns on the top of his head
Unfortunate Thing wore a fine suit of scales
Which hadnt been polished for years
All covered in dust and speckles of rust
From endless showers of tears
Reclined on a large sack of compost
A vision of gloom and despair
Alone in the shadows, sat sobbing
Needing some comfort and care
Poor Thing said I, Whats the problem
whatever is troubling you?
And proceeded to give him a cuddle
( .which proved quite a hard thing to do)
Whilst blowing his nose on some sacking
Still sobbing, he tried to explain
How his rather unfortunate features
Had caused all his troubles and pain
I love all the creatures of nature
I love all their beauty and grace
But they all run and hide when they see me arrive
Because of my hideous face
And oh, when I look at the flowers
Fetch me a FertleFetch me a FertleFetch me a Fertle7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Go fetch me a Fertle, my beamish boy
That scuttle upon the moonlit sands
The neap tide calls them out tonight
To swim the seas to far off lands
Go fetch me a Fertle, darling child
Tis a strange, alluring little creature
Whose pearly shell upon its back
Is considered its most charming feature
But tread you carefully as you go
Theyre quick to startle, fast to flee
And should they hear your heavy step
Will scurry fast towards the sea
Take with you a lidded box
Lined with feathers deep inside
And if you chance to capture one
Place it in and let it hide
And as you bring it back to me
Sing a gentle lullaby
To calm its swiftly beating heart
For Fertles are so quick to cry
And once their Fertle tears do fall
They carry on until a time
When all youll have inside your box
Is nothing but a pool of brine
So sing a song to make it stay
And settle to captivity
Dont let the Fertle melt away
Oh, bring a Fertle back to me
I Had a Fish...I Had a Fish...7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I Had a fish...
At the fair the other day
In amongst the stalls
Was one where you could win a fish
By throwing yellow balls
I decided then and there a fish
Would make a lovely pet
And wondered with my 80 pence
How many I could get
After several losses
On my fourth attempt
I won a tiny little fish
That swam around all bent
I kept him in a shiny bowl
With weed and coloured stone
I thought he looked quite happy
In his new and shiny home
But a week or so later
His scales were not so gold
And Mummy said my crooked fish
Was now struck down with mould
I didnt know what I could do
To help my little friend
I knew no fishy remedies
To get him on the mend
Then I had a great idea
If the mould had made him sick
Perhaps some soapy water
Would just do the trick
But alas, the best carbolic soap
That I could find in town
Couldnt help my fishy pal
From floating upside down
I found him in the morning
My dear and trusty friend
And Mummy said it was the soap
That got him in the end
I put him
I Had a Slug...I had a slug...I Had a Slug...7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I had a slug, it was my pet
I kept him in a jam jar
It got depressed, began to fret
Because he couldn't crawl far
I kept it on the windowsill
'Till one hot sunny day
I found him stiff and all dried up
Poor slug had passed away.
And now my sluggie haunts me
He floats around my room
He points accusing horns at me
and threatens me with doom
'Why did you leave the lid on?'
He whispers in my ears
His slimy face all sorrowful
With small, wet sluggie tears
And now my nights are haunted
Slugs vengeance will not cease
Though he had a Christian burial
My slug won't rest in peace
Lego and RainbowsIt used to be simpler.Lego and Rainbows5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Workloads were lego
and gameboys were bigger.
The world was greater
when rainbows were an end
to be followed, by the intrepid
and yelling storm-chaser.
How to spend my gains,
when youth drifts further
and further away?
On more lego? The toyseller
would laugh and say
I was mad. So I shall show
to the world that I am old-
Swear on my quietly thinning soul,
at rainbow's end I found no gold.

The Princess Studio
There were spingles and spangles
And wonderful things
There were twinkles that dangled
From octopus rings
Organza and lace and a taffeta shawl
With looking glass baubles reflecting it all
Bottles with essence of giggles and whispers
And secrets not even disclosed to your sisters
A tumble, a jumble of cushions and throws
Powder-puff balls to powder your nose
There were feathers and fancies and filigree frames
Holding pictures of people with ridiculous names
Toys from a childhood only just gone
With lingering laughs hanging gleefully on
Outside, looking in was an envious moon
Who longed to slip in and relax in the room
But the walls and the windows would never relent
To the wiley old words of this silvery gent
Their job to protect on the coldest of nights
The princess asleep amidst all her delights
There were spingles and spangles
And wonderful things
There were twinkles that dangled
From octopus rings

So sleep little dreamer sleep...
Let sweet slumber take you little dreamer close your eyes
And I'll meet you in the garden where we'll dance with fireflies
We'll search for fallen stars that have crashed into the sea
We'll outrun the sands of time, little dreamer, you and me
Capturing moonbeams in bottles, sending wishes on the breeze
Lying back in the long grass under the canopy of trees
Watching as night fades away and the sun begins to rise
Now it's time to leave the garden little dreamer open your eyes
In the corner of the garden is the tree where dreamers meet
So sleep little dreamer sleep...

The once-ler threw the seed,
so perfect and so round,
and the seed let off a quiet sound,
as it bounced its way to the boy,
now having a heart full of joy,
as if it was the best treasure ever found.
The boy picked up the seed,
And finished off his deed,
by running oh so fast
and stumps and stumps he past,
for the forest would soon get a feed.
He found the Lorax,
behind the smog of smogs,
his face so dim,
and mourning with the sadness,
and having little madness,
but more looking grim.
But the boy shared his tale,
and how it looked like a fail,
but he never let in,
instead, fought with a grin,
and showed the seed on his nail.
The Lorax smiled, as he did,
and ran as fast as a little kid,
and finished the need,
of planting the seed,
for his pain just flew and hid.
He dug a hole in the ground,
for a home, the seed had found
as the Lorax gave it water,
he'd raise it like a daughter,
and covered the seed in a big dirt mound.
Now, that Truffula tree grew,

His black hair had become long and matted as it flopped all over his face, a cold suspicious look in his eyes, he looked a bit scruffy and stronger as well. He was no longer the scrawny kid he'd been in New York, he had buffed up and had only his torn shorts on too, but for being in the Null Void for about two or three years he didn't look half bad.if he only knew gwevin part 76 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Max watched as Kevin suspiciously and with caution surveyed his surroundings, a maniacal look on his face. Kevin knew that the door wasn't left open for no reason, someone had to have opened it. Kevin walked to his left and right, looking for the fool who'd carelessly left the Null Void open. He looked down alleys, in cars, and around corners. Then, frustrated, Kevin touched the pavement, absorbing the road.

"This way!" Ben yells, running around a sharp corner, Kevin and Gwen running fast behind him. It was one sharp turn after another as they weaved their way through the old building, all the way down to a basement level. Then Ben stops, Kevin and Gwen stop too as Ben yells: "He got away!"
Kevin yells "Damn it Tennyson, you were supposed to be the one leading, and you lost him!"
"I didn't lose him." Ben says. As he looks down he says, "He just slip away from me."
"What's the difference? " Kevin says, but Ben didn't answer.
So, now what?" Kevin says as he leans agent a wall, accidentally hitting a switch. The floor begins to shake.
"What'd you do Kevin?" Ben yells.
But before Kevin can come back with a witty comeback a trap door on the floor begins to open taking them by surprise. All three of them fall through.

All Cats Have Asperger SyndromAll Cats Have Asperger SyndromeAll Cats Have Asperger Syndrom5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
By Kathy Hoopmann
The First Signs of Asperger Syndrome are usually picked up very young.
An Asperger child looks at the world in his own unique way.
He likes to be near those he loves...
But doesn't want them to hold him...
Preferring squishy places to a hug.
Instead of coming to people for comfort he may be overly attached to a toy...
Or a pet.
It's possible he may be extra adventurous with no sense of danger...
And he uses up some of his nine lives all too quickly.
An Asperger child often has exceptionally good hearing...
And loud sounds and sudden movements may scare him.
His other senses can be heightened too, such as touch...
Yet things that bother other people may not bother him.
He's often fussy about what he eats...
And wants the same food presented in the same way day after day.
He isn't interested in the things other kids his age do...
When he's forced to mix, he doesn't know how.
Other kids make friends...
But don't invite him to pl

If I had only these,
I would sail on the glassy sea;
Or a dagger and shield
I could fearlessly wield
And slay a mad dragon or three!
But these things have I none,
A pearl and a rose,
If I had only those
I could wake fair Penelope;
And a saddle and steed
Are all that I’d need
To join ranks in the cavalry!
But those things have I none,
But. . .
Ink and a pen,
If I had only them,
I could write of the story of me:
How I sailed along on a barbarous sea,
and slew the dragon armies three,
and rescued fair princess Penelope,
and rode home at the head of the cavalry. . .

"Huh??? " Ben said confused.
"I'm saying he timed traveled, Dweeb. Similar to when we did. He came from five years from now." Gwen said, like the smart show-off she was.
"What....? NO WAY!" Ben said excited.
"Yeah. That's right." Gwen said having trouble containing her own excitement. "And that's not all..." She explained the Plumber thing, the charm, how he had popped out of nowhere and kicked the Vulpimancer's butt, how he was fighting aliens with the two of them in the future... everything Kiley had told her in that short time.
Kevin smiled, he found both of their excitement amusing. It was sooo odd and weird to see them acting like this over him. It kind of defied logic, the two cousins were something else. Not completely different from what he knows, but there was a difference. Again Kevin's mind wandered to five years ago and why he had not seen what he saw now in
