The Inventor

There are so many things I wish did exist.
For many years now, I've been keeping a list.
I'll be the greatest inventor when I am all grown.
And the coolest machines I will then own.

One idea was inspired 'cause all of my stuff
Is grabbed by my bro, and he is quite rough.
The "Create-A-Thingie" will make you another
When your favorite toy is broken by your brother.

Will Mom refuse to let you leave the table,
Til you finish your plate, although you're unable?
"I-Don't-Want-It-You-Eat-It" will make life a breeze
When Mom makes you stay til you eat your veggies.

Teacher says my math's in need of assist-
A number of problems on my test I had missed.
The "Number-ator" makes math skills much greater,
Though I'm not sure it's different than
my calculator...

Bath hour in the way of your Lego time?
Mom insists you get rid of the dirt and the grime?
The "Dry Shower" cleans you, but never annoys!
In five minutes flat you'll be back to your toys!

When Mom gets out sunscreen, do you start 
to squirm?
Do you wriggle and twist just like an earthworm?
Meet your new friend, the "Sunshine Reflector"-
Following you from above, it's your new protector!

Is cleaning your room your least favorite chore,
And there is anything you would rather do more?
A vacuum sucks up toys with suction so strong,
Then spits them back out to where they belong!

Dear Aunt Louise keeps pinching your cheeks?
Her wet kisses leaving smeared lipstick streaks?
This decoy I made will no doubt attract,
Leaving your face unsqueezed and clean skin intact!

How do these ideas get into my head?
They come to me all day and when I'm in bed.
You might say it is a family tradition,
My parents have given me lots of ambition.

They're the best inventors that I've ever seen,
Though their specialty isn't robots or machine.
I don't know how, or if they'd make another,
They somehow invented my little brother.

  Walking along the steep sea cliff To see the lovely views, The Otter strolled a bit too close- His footing he did lose! He smelled the salty ocean air And flowers on the breeze. He listened to the sweet Bird songs And wind between the leaves. Watching Dolphins jump and play In ocean's foamy swells, He didn't see the dark tree root And over the side he fell. As he dropped down toward the waves, Per Gravity's laws, He saw a branch that stuck way out And grabbed it with his paws. He felt thankful for the chance That this branch did give. But also noted sadly That this was no way to live. As he hung over the cliffs He noted with a frown The new problem that he now faced Was how would he get down? "I've no clue how to live Drifting in winds and gales- What will I eat?  For way up here There are no Clams or Snails!" He swung there dangling in the wind, Regretting his clumsiness. He wished he had been more aware And avoided this whole mess. As time passed, as he ju

Out Cold

As Winter was approaching Lizard felt chill in the air. Being so cold-blooded She needed to prepare. She wasn't like the mammals- Their body heat came from inside. Instead she was affected By the temperature outside. In Summer she stayed warm With the strong heat of the sun. But she would feel so cold Once the Autumn had begun. Every year she searched For a place to warm her bones. So into a hole she'd go Or find some sun-warmed stones. But Winter was so pretty- There was so much fun to do! She'd maybe learn to ski Or try out new snowshoes. The white blanket that covered All the land and all the trees Was beautiful and peaceful, Despite the low degrees. So this year would be different. She would try a brand new plan. She'd need to find a way To stay warm in the cold land. It was still mid-Autumn, She had time to plot her course And begin her search For a portable heat source. The first idea that came Was to carry a bright torch. She found an old matchstick, But her fing

Rare Bird

The Chickens always chatted All day in the coop. They had the latest info. They knew the hottest scoops. The Geese would sometimes join To hear the latest tales, Along with all the Roosters, Ducks, Turkeys and Quails. The Chickens were, no doubt, The farm's most popular. They ruled all of the acres, Living the life of stars. The Pig and Sheep were jealous. The Goat, he felt it too. They wanted all the fame That the Chickens knew. So Pig said they should try To become the new elite. The Goat and Sheep agreed With a "Maa" and a big bleat. He'd go undercover After learning how they spoke. He'd learn their native tongue And all their inside jokes. Pig would learn their secrets, Know all that they had said. And in no time at all They'd rule the whole farmstead! He'd work with his best friends To sneak into the coop. Then he'd quietly Infiltrate the group! Night and day they listened, And practiced how to speak By watching all their gestures And looking at t
