Long day for a little girl

by sunovawot & damommza

Sarah 16.09.13

it started off so settled
what more can I say
it seemed like any other
ordinary day
but then things took a turn and
suddenly I’m shook
where now am I going
I don’t know where to look
everything is different
a fascinating whirl
but now I think it’s been a
long day for a little girl

she’s lying softly near me
taking in this and that
she’s thinks she loves her brother
but does not love the cat
this little bit of sunshine
so tiny and so meek
has just stolen the cat’s food
even as we speak
she’s 9 lbs of cuteness
that can jump over my head
but for now she’s tired
and just dreaming in my bed…

the LOLrus is a stodgy dude
always grumbling about his bukkit
and now he’s old and has forgot
he left it in Nantucket


and don’t forget the hoarsey
with mane and glossy coat
surprising to discover
the real frog in it’s throat


the bi-polar bear is sometimes here
and sometimes he is not
his iceberg’s turning to a lake and
he’s getting awfully hot!


the thing ’bout the see-lion
if you don’t want a scar
as soon as you see-lion
then dive into your car


The wallabee’s a wannabee
he vogues just like Madonna
when asked why he can’t be himself
he says he just don’t wanna!

The regret is a big white bird
who eats a lot of fish
he sadly wonders about those lives
that ended on his dish

a creature that’s all fur and licks
oh, that’s my sweet old dawgie
his bark is small, he has no bite
just licks until I’m sawgie!


weev kum tu see teh dgirraft
adn beleev mii iz kwite kweer
wee haz to putt owr cotez on
tehrez an awful dgirraft in heer

These verses were written, by invitation, in the comments for, and in response to, the poem “animals”, ( https://sunovawot.wordpress.com/2011/09/10/animals/ ). Each verse is preceded by it’s author’s name.


the octropuss will rob you
’tis very sad but true
he’ll pick your pockets with 8 arms
then lock you in the loo!


the spryder is joker but
be sure to bear in mind
while you’re watching one hand
seven will rob you blind


and what about the ahhhcelot?
laying there so regal
he’ll trick you in to signing stuff
and make sure that it’s legal!


the saddest of the animals
the woolly mammoth is, I fear
no one had the heart to tell him
he’s no longer here…


The Hamshur really doesn’t mind
Running errands big and small
Just don’t tell them that the wheel
Doesn’t go anywhere at all!


the hamsher’s friend the gurbil
comes following right after
meanwhile the cookieburra
is rollin’ round with laughter


Whot mite a Dodo have dun dun?
It cud hav bean reeli fun fun.
But we’ll nevver reeli kno kno, kid
Coz the Dodo is now a Did Did !!


teh dick-dick does a dans-dans
teh eye-eye says noe-noe
butt offer it sum martooniez
adn wotch teh eye-eye go-go

Any further verses will be gratefully recieved.


there are so many creatures
I cannot name them all
but since I bought this rifle
they answer when I call

the ellyphunkt is mighty
it rides a bike for fun
it sleeps up in the treetops
and is never known to run

the kangeroot’s a bully
as anyone can tell
it’ll steal your undergarments
and tell you that you smell

the osselotl stab you
as soon as shake your hand
(it used to write bad poetry
that the critics always panned)

the allegrator can be
so pleasant when you meet
but never gamble with it
’cause allegrators cheat
