Boo


It has been a month, it has been non-stop. 
You may think my story is over the top.
This poltergeist that lived in my room
Had filled me with fear and filled me with doom.

It started when I came home from school
One day in the Fall, the air turning cool.
Inside more then, I noticed the change-
Things moving around, which I thought 
quite strange.

First, items would be in one place, then another.
I thought that maybe it had been my brother.
He denied any participation,
Which only increased my feelings of frustration.

Then books began to fall on the floor.
I would see shadows at the closet door.
Rattling chains, and moans filled the space.
At night I'd pull covers up over my face.

The toys in my room would circle and spin.
Then they'd fall down, causing a loud din.
Mom would yell out, "Stop all that noise!"
But it wasn't me throwing the toys.

I tried to explain, it was the ghost and not me!
But she didn't believe, she refused to see.
I finally decided, rather than resist,
I should find a way to peacefully co-exist.

Then something happened, most unexpected-
Something I never would have suspected.
I was in bed, Mom was cleaning my room-
She sucked up the ghost into the vacuum!

I saw him go up, his eyes opened wide-
He was in the machine, stuck tight inside!
I saw him moving, trying to get out!
Moaning and groaning and thrashing about!

 Mom, Dad, that's the truth!  Why would I lie?
I'm sorry, with your request, I cannot comply.
I'll tell you again, what I've already expressed-
I can't clean my room 'cause our 
vacuum's possessed.

Eye of the Beholder

  We love animals that are so cute, Like a Puppy, Cat or Bunny. But there are cool creatures we ignore Because they look quite funny. Let's take a look at some of them Cause they deserve attention. You'll find them very interesting And way beyond convention. First is the small Star Nosed Mole With a strange shape on her face. But she's fastest of hunters, No one can beat her pace! Her strange pink nose gives her an edge, Though her eyes can barely see. She can find food and eat it up Before you can count to three! She swims with water proof fur, Digging claws?  As oars they double! She can smell underwater too Through the use of bubbles! Next is a creature that you'll love, Though they look quite strange. But once you learn their special skill Your opinion will change! Aye Ayes look shocked, with big eyes, Hair looks electrified. But when in trees, looking for food, They know just what's inside! One finger, long and thin, Taps quickly on the trees. It makes bugs mov

Come Together

The little Fox looked rather bored, So Mom said, "Go and play!" She didn't like him sitting there And moping the whole day. "If you use imagination You'll find something to do. Go create your own fun game, Or build something brand new!" Mom encouraged little Kit, "Now you go outside." So little Pup left their house With a heavy sigh. He looked around maybe to find A fun activity. He promised Mom he would use His creativity. He found some twigs and some leaves- "I'll make a cool canoe! I'll be the Captain of this boat And its made up crew!" He worked hard to build the craft, And since he was the boss, He made himself a Captain's hat Out of bark and moss. He launched his ship into water, Was pleased that it did float. He sailed toward land across the lake In his little boat. But right before he did land Sharp rocks on the shore's bank Made a hole in his canoe And it quickly sank. He climbed onto the sandy beach With no trees

Large

  Watching as all of the Fish swam on by, The big, lonely Whale breathed a deep sigh. In schools the Fish laughed, happy as can be, Playing and frolicking in the blue sea. Whale would usually swim all alone, By himself since he was full grown. A popular mate when he was a minor, Before he grew big as an ocean liner. He'd swim by, all would be overtaken- The turbulence he created left them quite shaken. They'd play hide and seek in an old sunken barge, But it's not much of a game when you're so large. More and more, he found he was excluded. "It's because I'm too big," he sadly concluded. "Playing with me is too much of a fuss. I guess that's what happens when you weigh more than a bus." It's not that the others disliked their old friend. They enjoyed with him the time they did spend. But as his diameter grew to be vast, They became small and frail in direct contrast. Their favorite games would have to be changed, And preferred activit
