Daedalus And Icarus, Page 1 Of 2

Daedalus watched the birds on high,
And wished that he could also fly;
But he did more than wish, bright man,
He studied wings and made a plan.

The Trojan War In A Nutshell, Page 1 Of 3

Paris, visiting Mycenae,
Spotted Helen, the city’s queenie;
She spotted him; the sparks they flew;
Her hubby, Menelaus, never knew,


The Princess Rapunzel lived high in a tower,
Where a wicked old witch had once placed her,
And day after day, from hour to hour,
Deep boredom and lonliness faced her.

The Ballad Of Anne Bonny, Page 1 Of 2

“Drain the bowl, each fearless soul!
Let the world wag as it will;
Let the heavens howl, the devil growl,
Drain the bowl, and fill! ”

Ode To Pizza

Sausage and onions,
And deep mozzerella,
Ground beef and mushrooms
Make life vita bella;

The Bear And The Bunny

Once there was a lonely bear,
Who lived in the land of I-Don’t-Care;
Who did what he did
With a shuffle and a shrug,

The Tiny Family

Down past the roses in the flow'ring dell
live a very tiny family in a walnut shell;
You may pass them by and never know,
for they're very, very small in their bungalow.

The Night Before Samhain

‘Twas the night before Samhain
And through Usher’s flat,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a bat.


“You’re drunk again, George.”
“That’s my own affair.”
“You’ll wake up the kid.”
“I don’t friggin’ care.”
