POETRY CORNER

:icontommyboywood:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :icontommyboywood:

Squirmin' HermanI met a boy in science class nobody seemed to like.
His clothes were torn, his face unclean, all wished he'd take a hike!
Teacher called upon his name and said: "Now define vermin."
He squirmed and squirmed there in his seat, now he's Squirmin' Herman!
Then one day I noticed that his seat was left unsat.
No one seemed to care and yet I wondered: "Where's he at?"
After class I asked the teacher if she knew his plight?
What she told me 'bout him has me crying every night!
Seems his mother left him when he was a child of two.
His father worked a stressful job and came down with the flu.
He had no health insurance and so tried to work it through.
Sad to say he died last week and left poor Herman blue.

I decided on that very day I'd find that boy and then,
tell him that I'm sorry and that I want to be his friend.
Kids like Squirmin' Herman need assured that they're okay.
I'm hoping that I get that chance, tomorrow or today!
The Popsicle Man
Summertime is always so much fun for me,
'cept the day I trashed my bike and skinned my knee.
No one there to help me so I cried: Poor me!
But then I heard that jingle and I counted to three.
Oh, I never wanna miss out on the Popsicle man,
cruisin' down my street in his shiny white van,
Calling out my name like nobody else can,
no, I never wanna miss out on the Popsicle man.
Hot Wheel cars and puppy dogs and candy canes,
sure don't ease the hurt of this broken arm pain.
Today marks the seventh straight day of this rain,
But then I hear that sweet sound comin' down a' my lane...
Oh, I never wanna miss out on the Popsicle man,
cruisin' down my street in his shiny white van.
Calling out my name like nobody else can,
no, I never wanna miss out on the Popsicle man
Oh I never will forget about the Popsicle man,
momma told me once she thought his name was Stan.
Trying all the flavors was my single game plan,
no, I never will forget about the Popsicle man,
no, I never will forget,
no, I never
My Night Out With Poe
Riding on the midnight rail train, snoring madman drives me insane,
while in the distance city lights entice us ever onward.
Try to sleep but him so noisy, wishing I was back in Boise,
not to mention silly raven, acting like my hat's a haven.
"Awfully hot in here," I stutter, suddenly in walks a maven,
asking why I'm not clean-shaven?
Oh, how I wish I could relate, this dismal trek to his home state,
though in reality the tale would bore you to your grave.
This Edgar dude is not my friend, he's not someone I could defend,
his raven bud's a ghostly sort, mug's always got an odd retort.
"Nevermore," he's always shrieking, wond'ring if he's drunk on port,
pleading with him to abort.
Whistle blowing train is stopping, guess we're here my ears are popping,
oh good gosh to no surprise the moon is full and reddish.
Raven hops on Edgar's shoulder, wishing I was feeling bolder,
howling wolf off in the distance, questioning this mad existence.
"Chilly night," is all he offers, pressing on in
When will we learn?
a babe found in a garbage dump one wintry rainy day
he'll never get the chance to live and love or run and play
... when will we learn?
the needle wasn't sterile when she stuck it in her arm
when she was young she dreamed of one day living on a farm
... when will we learn?
the pastor took the little boy on holidays abroad
the scars it left upon his heart destroyed his faith in God
... when will we learn?
the battle raged with all it's might ten thousand fell as one
or maybe it was 15k that died under the sun
... when will we learn?
they beat to death a homeless man and said they just were bored
their parents hired lawyers that the average can't afford
... when will we learn?
the officer approached the youth with dreadlocks and a knife
shot him there right through the heart and took away his life
... when will we learn?
the boss shot down the scheme that sent pollutants to the sea
but secretly he gave the nod and thus it came to be
... when will we learn?
so many ills upon the race of m

Your fairy is called Oak Goblinwitchgreen dragon animated avatar by ftourini
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
