Ask a Silly Question...

How do Porcupines embrace?
Carefully, I guess...
Standing far apart with their
Paws around their necks?

Whatever do Raccoons
Wear on Halloween?
Since wearing masks for them
Is pretty much routine?

Are Hyenas really laughing
At some clever inside joke?
What could be that funny
That kind of laughter to evoke?

How to know a Horse agrees,
That he means "yes" or "yea"?
When the only thing he says
Is simply the word "nay"?

Flamingos have great balance
When on one leg.  Although,
I wonder what would happen
If they got vertigo?

Snakes are awesome creatures,
But not without a hitch.
I wonder what they do 
When they have an awful itch?

A Skunk's spray smells bad
And it makes me think-
How does a Skunk prevent the smell
From causing him to stink?

Swordfish's strange anatomy
Gives me much delight.
Do they engage with others
in undersea sword fights?

A Rooster crowing loud
Preps us for the day ahead.
But do you ever wonder
Who gets the Rooster out of bed?

Penguins seem dressed up-
"Looking good!" could be their credo.
But where exactly do they go
Where they'd need such a tuxedo?

Peculiar thoughts I have,
And through my head they flow.
My brain makes odd connections
As I'm sure these questions show.

PAPERBACK KINDLE

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.
