HANG DIRTY SOCKS FOR HOLLYHOCKS

My garden was all full of rocks,
But, it grew the most beautiful big hollyhocks,
Then, along came a deer,
Who ate without fear,
Until, I used a repellent of old dirty socks.

TO ALL THE MOMS ON MOM'S DAY

I wish all moms on mom's day,
Happy thoughts all the way,
And, after each evening storm,
To wake up warm,
Like sunshine on the bay.

WHY I HAVE NO CHAIRS LIMERICK

My relatives eat just pasta and beans,
Hence, in my family there aren't any leans,
So, when one sits on a chair,
The weight it won't bear,
I've bought chairs but, I've run out of means.

TERMITES AND ME

Something bad happened to my wood deck,
This spring it all fell all to heck,
On the problem I set sights,
And, found ten billion termites,
Next, my wood house crashed down in a wreck.

THE ANIMAL LANGUAGES RHYME

My turtle named Herman could speak only German,
My pet fish Louise spoke just Japanese,
My little pet finch could speak only French,
My dolphin named Wendy only spoke Hindi,
My pet snake named Vanish spoke nothing but Spanish,
My big goose named Maelic just spoke words in Gaelic,
My tame honey bees conversed Portuguese,
My doggy named Patton knew no words but Latin,
And, Albert the cat just listened and sat.

I TOOK OUT MY BOAT TO SLAUGHTER FISH

Out upon a bit of water,
I took my boat for some fish to slaughter,
But, I hit a big wave,
Found a watery grave,
Where I fed a hungry sea otter.
