Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [D] (The Forbidden Driveway)

The house was set high on a hill-

It had a windmill, in the yard, that stood still.

.

No one ever dared go up the driveway-

For there were tales, from back in the day.

.

Tales that said a witch lived up on the hill-

And she’d get you, if you ever got close to that

windmill.

.

So everyone stayed away, and no one there was to

be seen-

Until the new boy in town, decided to go there,

on the recent night of Halloween.

.

Everyone watched him as he walked up the driveway,

and then he went past-

The windmill, and kept going further, as everyone

was aghast.

.

He headed closer to the darkened scary front door-

Those watching did not know what next would

be in store.

.

The door opened and a nice little old lady

filled up the boy’s bag, all the way to the top-

It was about to overflow, and finally she had

to stop.

.

The boy then came down the driveway without

much harry-

The only problem that he had was the bag was a

bit heavy to carry.

.

All the other kids, who had been watching were

in awe-

There was no witch, to get them from what they

just saw.

.

Those tales that they had heard just weren’t true-

They had missed out on much, as they now

headed up the driveway, to get some treats too.

.

The house was set high on a hill-

It had a windmill, in the yard, that stood still.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 374 (The Bully Finally Came Around)

The big bad pumpkin
tormented the candy corn-
He had been doing it, since
the day he was born.
.

.
He’d hide in the cornfield-
So, that he could jump out,
only, after being concealed.
.
.

He’d laugh at their little orange
and white bodies-
At every single moment, that he
could seize.
.

.
He’d act all big and bad-
The candy corns would be sad,
while the big bad pumkin, would
be even more glad.
.

.
The candy corns knew-
That something would have to
happen, something would have
to acrue.
.

.
They reported the big bad pumpkin
to an authority-
And, they kept it up, until there was
no other incident to be.
.

.
The big bad pumpkin got tired of
being reported on-
So, he let up a bit, and a lot of the
bad was suddenly gone.
.

.
As a matter of fact, the big bad pumpkin,
who had given up, was one day seen-
Playing, cheerfully, with the candy corns,
in an orange and white flowered field,
that was highlighted, in green.
.

.
The big bad pumpkin
tormented the candy corn-
He had been doing it, since
the day he was born.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [C] (Trick Or Treat In The Neighborhood)

The children looked forward to Halloween-

For all types of costumes would be seen.

.

There would be scary ones and fun ones too-

There would be new ones and old ones, to pass through.

.

The neighborhood that is, for that is where the fun would take place-

As far as they could remember, that was always the case.

.

Going from house to house, to collect a lot of candy-

Filling their bags, that always came in handy.

.

Screaming trick or treat, is what would be popular that night-

With  adults opening the door, with lots of treats on site.

.

The children looked forward to Halloween-

For all types of costumes would be seen.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [B] (EMPTY BOWL)

The last time I looked-

The candy bowl was booked.

.

Lots of candy corn, to get to know-

Really and truly about to overflow.

.

And when I looked again, there was no candy to see-

I looked at the bottom, it was all the way empty.

.

How that happened I thought I’d never know-

As my curiosity began to grow.

.

So I filled up the candy bowl once again-

And waited for a while, until the moment when-

.

The children came and ate every last piece-

As a matter of fact, they had one heck of a candy corn feast.

.

Children are like that, as we all know-

And many adults also keep the delicious habit in tow

.

The last time I looked-

The candy bowl was booked.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [A] (Pardon Me)

The turkeys stood in the crowd-

Together they gobbled very loud.

.

They were excited because it was the day-
Two, of them, would be honored in a special way.
.
Out of all of the turkeys, only two were able to win-
At the thought, they all went gobble, gobble again.
.
The excitement and anticipation began to grow-
The White House is where they all wanted to go.
.
After being pardoned by the President of the USA-
They had waited patiently, for this very day.
.
Two names were finally called, and off they went-
Off to the White House is where they were sent.

.

There would always be next year, for turkeys of a new generation-
They continued to gobble gobble, as the event was over and done.

.

The turkeys stood in the crowd-

Together they gobbled very loud.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 666 (Too Much Halloween Candy)

 

There is always a problem of what to do-
With all of that leftover Halloween candy, that we
happen to acrue.
.
To bring it to work, is always a great place-
To dump it on the co-workers, to take up
desk candy jar space.
.
Or to give it to someone, who doesn’t have
a lot-
Then all of a sudden, a bunch is what they’ve
got.
.
Some donate it to the homeless-
As they think that it serves one best.
.
It’s obvious, that after picking through-
To give the rest away, is just a good
thing to do.
.
There is always a problem of what to do-
With all of that leftover Halloween candy, that
we happen to acrue.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 467 (Cable Out)

The television set went out-
Making me hopeless, no doubt.
.
For I had nothing to do-
To finish the day, how would I
get through?
.
First, I had to get up from the
couch-
Creating for me, one big ouch.
.
And, as I looked around-
I knew that some type of
activity, would be found.
.
The dog needed to be fed, and
the china cabinet had a bit of
dust-
The dishes needed washing,
and the kitchen nozzle had a
bit of rust.
.
The closet needed cleaning out-
The shoes inside, needed a full
re-route.
.
The refrigerator was in overload-
The last pair of pants, I wore
needed to be sewed.
.
The bedding needed washing,
and dried too-
I’d wash the pillows, too, yes,
that is what I’d do.
.
The windows looked shiny, and
needed a shine-
To water the plants would be
kind.
.
Looking outside, I could see that
the bushes needed a trim-
I’d wash off the porch, as a whim.
.
That deck of cards on the table-
Could come in handy, for a good
game, when I was able.
.
Gee, there was so much to do,
despite not having any TV, for
a bit-
Lots of things to do, lots of things
to clean,  there was no time to sit.
.
The television set went out-
Making me quite busy, no doubt.
