Willy with a thirst for gore
Nailed his sister to the door
Mother said with humor, quaint
Willie dear, don't scratch the paint

Hey! Let's make this into a poetry slam!

Brie Boy

Brie Boy had a dream he had only had twice,
that his full, round head was only a slice.


The other children never let Brie Boy play ...
... but at least he went well with a nice Chardonnay.

~ Tim Burton

Okay, then...how's this?

What makes Existence really nice
Is Virtue -- with a dash of Vice.

Harry Graham

Or this:

Melon Head
My best friend is a melon head,
and when it's time to snack instead
of munching on some cheese or toast,
his favorite snack he likes the most
is chunks of melon, piled on bread.
He gets the melon from his head.
I fear that it's become a drain
on his forever shrinking brain.

Please don't hate me for doing this...I volunteered you to deal with a virtual easter basket. Go to my blog and grab it for your blog and do what I did, please? It raises money for the children's miracle network which I think provides chocolate for me. Pls!!! No, it raises 10 bucks per blog that participates for this charity. Thanks! You have until April 4th.
