Humpty Dumpty: the final verse (funny poem)

So they souffled his whites
and scrambled his yolk.
Humpty was served piping hot
with a side of artichoke.

Evil brewing, stewing

There’s a chance I may be evil
(I’m testing the theory.)
The laugh in my head is now deep dark and baritone
instead of light and cheery.

To do

Hold your head up high
(your neck will do the work)
Deep breath in,
flash a smile.
Now get to work!

School notebook

“Teacher I’ve lost my notebook
so this Zebra will take its place.
I’ll stay within the lines
I’m just not sure how to erase.”

Bedtime routine

Beachy cheeks
Dewy lips
Enough powder
for apocalypse

Pigmented lids
Smokey eyes
Back to lips
now glossified

Quick inspection
“Damn” I said
Wink to reflection
Now off to bed

Santa’s waistline

Chimneys may look brick
but me thinks its brick looking rubber.
How else does Santa and his girth
descend with all that blubber?
