A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
A happy hatching has occurred,
An Inca tern chick comes brand new.
The species, an endangered bird,
Can be seen at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Growing up, all I had was Dad.
He was my best friend, come what may.
At times, I cried when I was sad.
Dad gently wiped my tears away.
President Grant did like to go
To the Willard Hotel lobby,
To be wined, dined and stogied so
The term, 'lobbyist' in D.C.
Whiskers, whiskers - I got a bunch,
As any harbor seal has got.
Whiskers help us to find some lunch -
Seafood, fish and crabs and whatnot,
Sloth, Luigi, decides to do
A water cooler hanging out
Here at home in Lincoln Park Zoo.
Luigi's got a thirst no doubt.
'Selfie' is the word of the year,
The year two thousand and thirteen.
Self taken pic - oops missed an ear,
For the social media scene.
I'd died and gone to heaven high.
The shock had not worn off me yet.
What choice was there but to comply?
I sure could use a cigarette.
Time running, Logan was there for
The wedding of his Mom and Dad.
In pinstripe suit, none dapper more
Than this little two year old lad.
Hubby was so hard to buy for.
He never liked the gifts I gave.
For days after, I would be sore
From his beatings in rant and rave.
