Take This Job and Poet.

Filed under Fun, Sketch

…Didn’t even know it…

Today is the last day of National Poetry Month, and, well, I just had to do something… I had earlier uploaded some old MSPaint doodles I did a while ago into a “misc” folder on this site, then started rhyming about them idly while washing the dishes today, and decided to make a little thing of it:

The Buddha Balloon, the Budda Balloon!
It must have come out of some kind of cartoon,
defending itself with a thund’rous kaboom
As it floats through the clouds on its way to the moon!
The wonderful, magical Buddha Balloon!

With gold and brocade it is always festooned,
catching all eyes from man down to raccoon
Such a wondrous sight you won’t see again soon
The stupendous-superlative Buddha Balloon!

The Magma Slug
Just wants a hug.
Though he is dumber than a bug,
He’s dangerous as any thug,
For while he has no cranium
His slime contains uranium.

The NanoPie
is very shy.
It hides while days and weeks go by
But when the season urges
it finally emerges
And though it makes no scream or “boo”
Most are surprised by its gray goo.

….Can you tell I like Ogden Nash?

    I was thinking as I read your poems that Ogden Nash would be pleased…..I’d be honored to eat NanoPie while floating in the Buddha Balloon in the company of an awakened Magma Slug.

    You can’t scare me.
