Cloud watcher, tea drinker, dog walker, cat napper
I love summer twilight, dawn fog, and banana cream pie
I believe hype is trite, compliments are contagious, and love is homemade
I feel tangled, fragile, and tentative
I fear unwashed hands, unheard words, and unforeseen consequences
I want to feed a giraffe, ride in a carriage, and sleep in a castle
I reside on the side of feathered hope

drink, funny love, humorous, violence,
Just a normal Sunday sitting on my chair
When all of sudden in walked my auntie uncle Claire
What the hell you doing barging in like that??
He said your not going fu**ing believe it? I just ran over your Cat
I said the only pussy in this house is my other half,
We played a few drinking games and i beat him at charades
He soon ad enough of that tho so i pulled out deck cards then he stared moaning reckon the games i play are hard.
Well i had enough of his lip i couldn't take no more
so rubbed his face on cheese grater and now hes bloody sore.

allusion, boyfriend, desire, devotion, funny love,
Zebras gallop in the distance reminding me of your love
Always on my mind when I need you
Inside my heart and body like a gallant giraffe
Nothing and no one could love me like you.
Zest doesn’t catch a fly but I would catch you
All around me it is a heaven you created
Impenetrable with no illusions, it’s us, you and me
Never looking back, your smile is a kiss Zain.
Zoom in like a camera, always and I will always say;
Amen with me and let it be forever, always my love
Inseparable as the sky and the moon
No one could change these feelings in a billion years.

The role of a jester
I readily accept
It's part of my makeup
I have no regrets
I take on the role
With gladness of heart
My reason for being
To me it's an art
An art to perfect
With each little rhyme
Finding that word
At the end of the line
A line that produces
A giggle or laugh
Like a mouse making love
To a lady giraffe
Now see how you grinned
And chuckled at that
It's really quite simple
When knowing the knack
Start with some silliness
And add the absurd
Even join 'em together
To form a new word
Rewards for your efforts
Are many my friend
You'll make people happy
Feel love without end

Pink or Blue--Yellow or Red
A crib that turns into a bed
A tall giraffe and teddy bear
Soft blankets to drag everywhere
Powder for a diaper rash
A spoon for food she likes to mash
A mobile helps to keep her calm
Fluffy jammies keep her warm
Lots of bubbles in a bath
Toys so she can play and splash
Keeping teethers nice and cold
Nap time stories being told
Lots of work is being done
For this precious little one
Made from sweet and tender care
And more than enough love to share

I don't know why god created
dream why we run like wheel
behind fun donkey monkey have
a kid dog and ***** tangle when
they meet fish and butterflies
never meet hrose
Ride the giraffe print of leapord
lead the jungle why trees never
walk it is gross when I think
About your kiss because
I will cry for more
With love all

A Baby Only a Mother Can Love
By Elton Camp
The new baby had quite spotted skin
It was a long way up neck to his chin
He was covered with hair, head to toe
Maybe it kept the baby warm, though
His ears extended from his head so far
And his nose was wet & black as tar
His legs were disproportionately long
Though there was really nothing wrong
The mother’s feelings I properly read
For I saw her kiss him on his head
(Written after seeing a mother giraffe tending to her newborn)
by Caren Krutsinger |
I must be a giraffe
They sleep three hours a day
I wish I had his height
And his skinny legs, hey!
I would eat the leaves off that tree
And walk around with my head in the sky
I would love to be a giraffe
Oh me oh my!

Go to babies you will understand love
Merely looking at them
You hear their earthen cries that
Shows their love language
Babies are harmless
Filled with innocence
Their smiles is admired by
God and man
Boys running after lizards
Girls attracted to their love toys
Forest citizens the monkey
Though ugly as claimed but
Cares for their babies without joke
As they stick to their mothers belly
The tallest forest citizen Giraffe
After birth kicks her baby severally
Until she walks around
It is not harshness
It is motherly pet for courage
Mothers are always fulfilled when
Their children are making progress.

“Where is she?” Auntie asked. Not reading again, I hope.”
“She surely is,” her parents replied. “She is no kind of dope.”
“I want her to go out and play, travel, and make a friend.”
“Not right now,” her niece told her. “Not until I get to the end.”
“Why does she love it so?” her auntie asked, not understanding at all.
“She travels the world in her novels, she can be miniature or tall.
One day she is a pirate, the next day a giraffe or race car or an atom bomb.
We encourage it because it keeps her safe, and happy,” said her Mom.

I live to make her Laugh
For her id ride a Giraffe
That's how much i Love Her
Id put no one else above Her
And despite the fact i have yet to meet Her
Inside i feel much better
Because despite the fact i have still not met Her
My heart is for once willing to be Patient
As in my forseable Future
I am that very Lucky Guy
That engages Beauty's Eye

the old man fluffed the pillow
smoothed the blankets
and lay down to sleep
hoping never to wake up
the price of gasoline is something impossible
said the nightingale to the goldfinch
have you seen how unemployment is
asked the pig to the frog
I hate noticing how it grows
the murder rate
shouted the giraffe to the beaver
eleven o'clock at night and all is well
warned the cabin boy
sore eyes from longing for love
have you noticed
that the mall is beautiful
when does christmas come?
certain that happiness lives inside a showcase
in the morning the old man woke up angry
and in the window of the tiny apartment
there were only gray clouds of rain as a landscape

caramels and carousels
and silly smiles we shared
the last time I stayed over
you told me that
We've always been like cousins
dancing on the wind
I thought that you would always be
just another friend
The pretty girls all chase you
and pull your hair and laugh
you always teased and said
I had a neck like a giraffe.
You've grown so tall and handsome
like Adonis in my eyes
I never dared to think of you
as being my life's prize
You say I have an aura
a shining in my soul
I think you have a fever
I fear you've caught a cold.
But I will take advantage
of your sickened state to say
I'll race you to the river
for I just might win today!

How can I turn from love and live?
Like slippery fish sliding through the water,
the answer evades me, not quite ready
Maybe I should turn into a canary
whose singing is its culinary,
or a ferocious lion in savannah
with no fear of hyena, or a
long-legged giraffe who behaves
like a chief of staff.
I'm a member of animal kingdom
not a candidate for martyrdom.
I let the bat in my heart to
fly away to safety.

3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, halloween,
I love your Halloween costumes! A little boy piped up.
Iggy laughed, and coffee spilled out of Giggy’s cup.
What is this Halloween thing? Giggy asked, wondering true.
They were aliens from Planet X6, these odd little two.
Halloween! You know! The child said with a laugh.
This kid is as funny as the animals we saw yesterday – a pink giraffe!
You saw a pink giraffe! The child said You two are funny!
Until this, the aliens thought the oddest earth idea was the concept of money.
