Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [H] (NOISES IN THE NIGHT)

The house was quiet, and no one was around-
A bit of agitation is what I eventully found.
For there were strange noises I did not know-
As I said before there was no one around, and no where to go.
I tried to think about something brand new-
It was the only thing that I could think to do.
To offset the strange noises that had brought much fear-
To ease my mind, I had to figure out to rid the noises and put them in arrear.
I tried to read a book, I tried to count about a thousand sheep-
But nothing brought relief, as I heartily tried to go to sleep.
I covered my ears, I went and got a snack in the kitchen-
I counted another thousand sheep, over and over again.
And then suddenly it occured to me, of this strife, I would put it to rest-
I called the police, and suddenly I had an invited guest.
The neighbors played their TV loud every single night-
All those horror shows and sounds would give anyone with insomina, a sure fright.
They were warned, and suddenly the night was silent and still-
To get lots of sleep, FINALLY, I will, I will.
The house was quiet, and no one was around-
A bit of agitation is what I eventully found.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 193 (To Be Used Later)

There was a time when the little girl
would read Mother Goose-
But as of late, of the stories the
little girl had no use.

For she was a tween now and all she
could see-
Is that stories like that would be for
a baby.

The years went by and eventually
the tween became a teen-
And of course, then, Mother Goose
had been years away from the scene.

No time for such nonsense for the
girl had now turned into a lady-
And more important things there
were to be.

And then all of a sudden the lady
become a mother-
A mother who wanted to be like
no other.

There was a time when the little
girl would read Mother Goose-
And with a brand new baby in
her life, for the story, she had
much use.
