The Pied Piper of Hamlin – A Poem

By Gloson On March 7, 2013 7 Comments

The small town of Hamelin had too many rats!
It’s too bad the rats could escape from the cats!
So, after each citizen said their prayer,
the Pied Piper was summoned by the town mayor.

The Pied Piper came with his strange shiny pipe
(was shiny because it was given a wipe).
The mayor said he would give him bags of gold,
if only he did what he had been just told.

The Pied Piper then blew the pipe, as expected.
However, the rats were not one bit affected!
The people were angry, so they blasted pies
aimed for the Pied Piper; he started to cry.

Now, you must be thinking hard, wondering why
the rats did not die and the people threw pies.
Well—I’ll tell you why: It was because
he was the Pied Piper; that was who he was!

My Kitty Cat Loves French Fries – A Poem

By Gloson On December 3, 2012 3 Comments

My kitty cat loves French fries
since he was a kitten.
The day he ate his first French fry
was when he’d gotten smitten.

He loves its crispy, tasty taste.
He says it’s so delicious.
He boasts, “French fries are hundred times
much tastier than fishes!”

He eats at least a plate a day.
He munches with his paws.
He dips the fries in ketchup,
then he puts them in his jaws.

When mean dogs bring my kitty down,
the way to cheer him up
is let him smell the French fries’
fresh aroma in a cup.

He dreams to live inside a castle
made out of French fries,
with some breathtaking fountains
spraying ketchup to the skies.

He aims to make his “French Fries Day”
a public holiday,
where French fries lovers all unite
and shout, “Hip, hip, hurray!”

Yes, my kitty cat loves French fries.
He really, really does.
He’s truly the most French fry loving
cat there ever was!

Last Week, A Little Dog Chased Me – A Poem

By Gloson On December 3, 2012 No Comments

Last week, a little dog chased me.
I ran as quickly as could be.
It chased me all around the place
to pounce on me and lick my face!

He chased me through the dirty street
just like a capable athlete.
He chased me through the pretty park.
I hurried home for it was dark.

Towards my house I quickly ran.
I suddenly thought of a plan.
I lured the dog into a cage;
It fled and got into a rage.

The dog ran into my mom’s room
and broke my mom’s vase and her broom.
It shed its fur on my mom’s bed.
Now my mom’s chasing me instead!

Mosquitoes – A Poem

My friends hate mosquitoes
’cause they’re like naughty elves.
Every time they slap them,
they slap themselves!

My Kitty’s Adventure – A Poem

My Kitty’s Adventure

My kitty was so bored of me
for I hug him all day.
He chose to take a small break
and go for a holiday.

He jumped into my toy plane.
He didn’t want to stay.
He buckled up his seatbelt
and zoomed out of the way.

With his great catty power,
he went out my open door.
He flew into the big blue skies.
He wanted to explore.

But there was a big thunderstorm.
The plane was struck by lightning!
He then began to crash! Oh no!
I’m sure that it was frightening.

Good thing he learned to swim because
he crashed into a river.
Bad thing it was the Angel Falls!
He then began to shiver.

He fell 1000 meters from
that great, tall waterfall.
He fell onto an ape that thought
my kitty was a ball.

And with his strength, he threw my kitty
up into the sky.
(I wish that I were him because
I always wished to fly.)

At that time, I was gazing at some
pretty clouds of red.
Then I saw my kitty flying.
Then he landed on my head!

“My darling, it is you!” I said.
I was indeed delighted!
”Meow! Meow! Meow!” he loudly sang
as we were reunited.
