FASTIDIOUS FATE

Posted: March 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

Once  there was a jungle boy,

who only ate frogs,
and nothing other.
Only consuming

an amphibious meal,
despite

his growing boy hunger.
Then came the day,

he had ate every frog,
that had existed

in this jungle’s milieu.
So he starved

to death,

and upon

his last breath –
still refused to try anything new.

“All he had to do

was give something else

a chance!”
Roared the King lion

in utter despair.
All the animals agreed,

although they did not seem,
to have a sound

to share.
Except

for the humble-less

self-serving

hyenas,
who laughed

again

and again,
as they feasted in delight,

without any plight,
upon the finicky boy before them.

UDDER FOOL

Posted: March 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

There was once a Guru

who told everyone

that hiked to his cave

at the top of the highest mountain

that they must find their answer

within themselves.

One day

the Guru’s young apprentice

asked of him

“Why are you a Guru,

if all you do is tell everyone

to find the answer themselves?”

The guru points to his fingertip,

“Ah young one

you see just like a fingerprint

the answer is always unique

to the individual.”

The apprentice then questioned,

“What if they look and don’t find the answer?”

The Guru smiled,

“One who can not find their own answer

is like a cow

looking for milk –

an udder fool.”

CURIOUS GORGE

Posted: March 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

Twitchy

pink nose

fluffy

wiggly tail

furry head

bobbing clockwise,

the little gray hare

tediously inspected

a colossal bush

lushiously adorned

with emerald green

heart-shaped leaves.

Slowly

the rabbit rose upright,

with perked ears,

and examined ever so intensely

the volumptious

volumes of leaves.

Closer

the bunny leaned

toward the greenery

close

close

close-

er

then

just

a

smidge

of a smidgen

closer

as the bunny’s nose

ever so slightly

barely

touched the tip

of a leaf

when

SUDDENLY

the bush opened up wide

and gobbled the bunny up.

with its leafy lips.

The oversized shrub

gulped

then began

to chortle hysterically,

and with fur flying

from its foliage mouth,

“Looks like curiosity,”

the leaves shook as the bush bellowed,

“doesn’t kill

just cats!”
