Bees vs. Cows

Here's another one of those rhyming, rhythmic poems you love so much!  I have no idea how the inspiration for this one came to me, but I made it anyway.  I think it's great when nonsense can be give structure and form.  Then it seems like it makes perfect sense, until you reflect back on it and realize that it actually is nonsense.  Maybe that'll happen to you after you read this.  Maybe it won't.  Only one way to find out.

Bartholomew Templeton's Lonely Life

TIme to introduce a new character:  Bartholomew Templeton!  He'll be appearing in many more stories to come, so stay tuned for more with BT.  He's a fairly multipurpose character, who can fit into most situations, no matter how absurd I make them.  Like this one.  So let's join BT in his first short story adventure.

I Wish I Could Fly

It's poem time!  And this time it has full rhyme and meter again.  This tale has two endings--almost like a choose your own adventure book--so you can pick which one to read depending on your mood.  Or you can read both!  Whichever suits your fancy.

Jonah and the Squid

As promised, here is another story about the Squid.  For a quick refresher on this character, you should read "Abraham Lincoln and the Squid," then come back and read this story.  And you might as well read all the other stories in between while you're at it!  As you'll be able to tell, I had some fun with this one.  If this story doesn't earn me my poetic license, I don't know what will!

Infernal Rhyme

This is not your typical poem.  (Not that any of mine are...)  This one is built around an internal rhyme with "Hell" in every line.  After writing a fairy tale for last week, I decided to go more down the folk tale path, but of course with the usual quirks along the way.  Enjoy!
