Y is a Crooked Letter

An aunt and her nephew were at the park
And the nephew was looking around.
As the day went on and it grew late,
The aunt heard a questioning sound.
Come my dear, and ask away-
There is so much you do not know.
Questions must come to you everyday
And by asking is how you'll grow.
Her nephew looked at her with big, round eyes
And opened his mouth to speak.
But to his aunt's shocking surprise,
Questions flew at out lightening speed!
Do snakes yawn when they get bored?
Why do bunnies hop?
Why does time go only forward?
And can it ever stop?
Where does rain go when it doesn't fall?
And where do rainbows end?
Were giraffes always that tall?
And how far can their necks bend?
Why can't trees run down the road 
And escape the lumberjack men?
What's the difference between frogs and toads?
And what makes a rooster not a hen?
Why do I shiver when I get cold?
Were dragons ever alive?
What is the difference between plants and mold?
When will I get to drive?
Why can't we drink the ocean water?
And what holds up a plane?
Why am I a son and not a daughter?
Why do we feel pain?
Why don't people have any tails?
How do they make chewing gum?
Are the biggest animals really whales?
And where did EVERYTHING come from?
When the boy paused to breathe,
His aunt did feel a bit smothered.
But AHA!  An answer that gave relief-
Let's go ask your mother.

Prickly

The Hedgehog felt a little down. Lonely, he felt quite sad. Such a friendly and outgoing guy, But hugs he never had. By nature, he was warm-hearted, And loved to talk and chat. But his quills were sharp, so friends stayed far. He couldn't blame them for that. On a walk he saw the Rabbit, Teary and wet-eyed. Rabbit explained he stubbed his toe. "It hurts so much!" he cried. Hedgehog gave his sympathies, And thought a hug would help. But as his spikes stuck Rabbit, He shouted, "Ouch!" and yelped. Rabbit frowned and limped away. Hedgehog then did lament,  "My aim was to give comfort- Pain was never my intent." He could not play with his mates, Not Touch Football nor Tag, Red Rover, Leapfrog, or Hand Clap. And not Capture the Flag. They didn't want to leave him out. They did like him so much. But what else could they do When his body hurt to touch? So Hedgehog would walk b

The Cat Play Book Mini - King

Don't come at me! Can you not see? I'm the toughest around! You think you're strong? You'll see you're wrong! I'll swat you right to the ground! I can see out so far! And touch all the stars! I'm hundred of stories high! You can't get me down, Or out of your town! No matter how many planes you do fly! I'm the strongest ape! Just look at my shape! You have no control over me! Try as you might, You can't match my fight! It's hopeless, soon you will see! Old Cat and Dog stared As Young Cat, teeth bared, Hung off of his tallest cat post. Swatting at flies, With intense, glaring eyes, In his daydream completely engrossed. "Cats are so weird," Dog simply sneered. Old Cat just shook his old head. "Don't say 'all cats'- We're not all like that. Young Cat's simply, um, spirited." "What can he be thinking?" Dog asked, staring, blinking At Young Cat, with his limbs all askew. Giving shoulders a shrug And

Identity Crisis

Platypus was in crisis What herself she should be called. Due to many guises, In many classes she did fall. The Platypus scratched her head,  She always thought she knew. But she didn't have an answer When asked, "What are you?" "A Platypus, of course," she laughed. But Muskrat then had said, "But what exactly does that mean?" And she cocked her head. "What does it mean?  What am I?" And now it plagued her so. If she couldn't tell what she was Maybe someone else would know? She found the Duck and waddled up- "Know what a Platypus may be? I'm at a loss and thought you might Have more a clue than me." Duck looked at her and smiled wide- "A kind of duck, I'm sure! You lay eggs and have a bill! You needn't wonder more!" Platypus was glad at first. But it did not take too long Until she started to think and feel Duck was very wrong.
