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 [G] Halloween Night

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

.

They went to see Mrs. Smith, who made the

popcorn ball-

She made plenty, she made enough for all.

.

Then off to Mr. Chester’s, who gave candy

corn-

And in addition, he blew real loud his

homemade boat horn.

.

Mrs. Garcia always had chocolate to boot-

When we left her house, we had scored our loot.

.

Mrs. Johnson had a variety of candy-

To trick or treat, at her house was real handy.

.

The Halloween bags were getting full and a bit heavy-

Thank goodness, Mama was following along in that

old time Chevy.

.

To unload a bit, in the car-

Then once again, to travel far.

.

From this block, to that block, the kids went

door to door-

It was Halloween night, and every house turned

into a candy store.

.

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

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.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 398 (Too Early)

I got to work and I could see-
That the parking lot was empty.
.

.
Did I forget and think that it was Sunday?
Or did I just happen to lose my way?
.

.
Did everyone else forget to get up this morning?
Maybe their alarm clock, did not ring.
.

.
I flet like I was in the Twilight Zone-
And, no one showing up for work, was setting the tone.
.

.
And, then suddenly, it hit me-
To set my clock back an hour, I forgot, how silly.
.

.
At least it was better than it was in the spring-
Which caused to earn that late to work thing.
.

.
I got to work and I could see-
That the parking lot was empty.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [F] (Candy To Share)

Jackie went trick or treating, and got lots of candy-

And she was skipping home, my, oh, my  it felt dandy.

.

She could hardly get her bag, in the door-

And she probably wouldn’t have, if she had gotten

a bit more.

.

She dragged the bag, into the kitchen, and threw it

on the table-

It was heavy, and she took care of it, as best as she

was able.

.

And then she went into her room, for a little while-

To watch a show, about fashion and style.

.

When she got back, her bag was missing, it simply

was not there-

Jackie looked around, and thought about how it was

not fair.

.

She had worked hard and of course, and had some fun-

Trick or treating for lots of candy, and then all of

a sudden she had none.

.

She immediately pulled up the tablecloth, and what

did she see?

Her little brother underneath, with her trick or treat

bag, now why would that be?

.

Her little brother’s face went pale, for he knew all along-

That taking over his sister’s Halloween treats, was

downright wrong.

.

Instead of scolding her little brother, she got

under the table-

And together, they ate as much candy, as they

were able.

.

Jackie went trick or treating, and got lots of candy-

And she was skipping home, my, oh, my  it felt dandy.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 192 (Hogan-Allnoch Building)

The historic Hogan-Allnoch building
was built back in 1923-
And unless a buyer comes along,
a parking lot is what it will be.

A four-story, 50,000-square-foot
building, that used to be a dry
goods store-
At the present time it has foundation
damage and so much more.

$5 million is needed for a restore on
hand-
While only $150,000 to tear it down
and return it back to the natural land.

Several auctions had been held-
But for a buyer to show up has three
time failed.

The historic Hogan-Allnoch building
that was built back in 1923-
At 1319 Texas Avenue, unless a
miracle happens, a new parking
lot, is what we will eventually see.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 191 (Aunt Pity)

There is a place called
“Aunt Pity”, the National
Mountain of Pity-
Where many Mexicans
prefer not to be.

But when times get hard
they slowly climb the
mountain-
To a historic place, from
way back when.

Once the ruins of the Aztec
emperor Montezuma’s
residence is what history
says-
And served as the treasure
house for conquistador
Hernando Cortez.

Now a pawn palace where
Mexicans do a last resort
trade-
Money loaned and collected
where their turned in wares
are laid.

There is a place called “Aunt
Pity”, the National Mountain
of Pity-
Where many Mexicans prefer
not to be, but are forced to,
because of the economy.
