Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 877 (Don’t Mess With My Monopoly Game Pieces)

I remember landing on Boardwalk, with my top hat-

Knowing that I would require Park Place, to up my bank account, that was flat.

.

I remember racing towards Go, with my racecar-

The thoughts, of an aquired $200, was not far.

.

My Scottie dog, would travel the board-

Looking for same properties, that I wanted to hoard.

.

My Battleship never seemed to fail-

To keep me moving, to keep me Out of Jail.

.

If I had enough money, I could always relax-

When my boot happened to land, on the Luxury Tax.

.

My Wheelbarrow would give me hope, when I had

to mortgage, a property-

With intentions, to buy back, is what I would eventually

see.

.

My thimble would stand tall and straight-

While escaping the highest rent, as of late.

.

At the end, of the game, my iron would hold

steadfast-

I was determined to stay in the game, until

the very last.

.

The playing pieces above are the ones that

I remember-

Back in the childhood days, from January to

December.

.

And, now I am being asked to give my

memories a new face-

To take out one, of the pieces above,

to choose and pick a replace.

.

A robot, a helicopter, a cat, a diamond ring,

or a guitar-

Will knock out, one of the above, and will become

the new Monopoly playing piece star.

.

Personally, I want to keep it the way that it is-

See no use for this updating biz.

.

Not everything has to change-

Not everything has to be put in re-arrange.

.

I remember landing on Boardwalk with my top hat-

Knowing that I would require Park Place, to up my bank account, that was flat.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 878 (That Childhood Trip)

I took a ride by car and by railroad-

And, in the meantime, passed many a road.

.

Beginning with the purple tones of

Mediterranean and Baltic Avenue-

By more than chance, $200 I happened to acrue.

.

Of course, the income tax got me, and I had to pay-

I felt like all of my earned money had been given away.

.

But, of course, in the light blue skies, I ventured on, and bought some property-

To the likes of Connecticut, Vermont, and Oriental Avenue, a bit of

revenue, I did happen to see.

.

I took the time, without fail-

To visit, a good friend in jail.

.

And, then off to St. Charles Place I went-

Also, to States Avenue and Virginia Avenue,

where much purple time was spent.

.

Orange highlighted I was delighted to see-

St. James Place, New York Avenue, and

that one avenue, simply named Tennessee.

 

I heard that there was free parking was up ahead-

But, somehow or another, I missed it, for

me, it was an issue that was dead.

.

As I continued on my trip, I saw much red up

ahead-

That included Kentucky Avenue, Illinois Avenue,

and Indiana Avenue, before getting tired, and

then resting my head.

.

Before I had left on my trip, I had made sure-

That the Water Works and the Electric Company,

had been paid, so that the services back home

would endure.

.

The trip got more sunny, with

yellow so bright-

Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor Avenue,

and Marvin Gardens, this planned trip

felt so right.

.

A mishap occured, and I ended up

in jail-

I had taken a detour, and quickly

paid, without much fail.

.

After serving time, the better side, of

life was seen-

Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue,

and Pennsylvania Avenue, all highlighted

in green.

.

With a few purchases, came the luxury tax-

It was about time to stop spending, to avoid

going bankrupt, for my card was heading

towards the mode of max.

.

And, then finally came the real reward-

Thanks to funds from a community chest,

I royally blue, studied Park Place and Boardwalk very hard.

.

Of course, I could have started all over again-

But, I grabbed my $200, and headed back home,

up and over the bend.

.

I took a ride by car and by railroad-

And, in the meantime, passed many a road.

 

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 673 (Strutting At School)

Tuffy the turkey went to school-
To learn the golden rule.
.
She strutted her feathers all day long-
She corrected her math when it was wrong.
.
She learned and took a hint-
At how to do the proper science experiment.
.
Tuffy wrote the best story ever-
In the midst of her English class endeavor.
.
And, when lunchtime came around-
Tuffy kept her feet firmly on the ground.
.
The corn tasted so good-
A second helping, yes, she would.
.
Back to class, Tuffy learned some more-
About the country’s history, Tuffy was
never in bore.
.
But, alas the school day did have to end-
Tuffy, went back home, that was up and
over the bend.
.
With thoughts to come back the next day-
Tuffy’s education was much underway.
.
Tuffy the turkey went to school-
To learn the golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 630 (Back To School)

Little Man watched out the window-
He saw his playmate, on the school bus,
ride away slow.
.
It had been different the whole summer long-
With no schedule, to worry about, the playtime
was strong.
.
Little Man would run and catch the ball-
He’d slide all the way down the hall.
.
Little Man would sleep in late-
Knowing that when he awoke, all
day long, he’d have his playmate.
.
But, suddenly things began to change-
Little Man’s life was in full re-arrange.
.
His playmate was no longer there during
the day-
For quite a while, the playmate would be
away.
.
School had begun, and for Little Man, he
had to adjust-
To wait for his playmate to come home,
patience was a must.
.
So he chewed on his bone, and hung
around until that yellow school bus
came back-
And, then life for Little Man, would get
back on track.
.
Little Man watched out the window-
He saw his playmate, on the school bus,
ride away slow.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 557 (Prep For School)

We got up early, to go to school-
We were great students, who always
followed the golden rule.
.
We heard the alarm clock, and off
we were-
To eat our breakfast, to do the oatmeal
stir.
.
And afterwards, brushing our teeth, and
our hair-
Already dressed, and doing a quick mirror
stare.
.
Didn’t want to miss the bus, for that was
not good-
Off to the bus stop, as we should.
.
And, to our surprise, we had forgotten
that school was out-
Habits persist, as we performed, a sudden
backward route.
.
We got up early, to go to school-
We were great students, who always
followed the golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 229 (Off To The Zoo)

There was a family who went to the zoo- To see all of the animals that they were not used to. They saw the lions and the bears- They saw the monkeys with all of their stares. They saw the elephants and the giraffes- They had lots of fun and many, many, laughs. There was a family who went to the zoo- And after many visits, all of the animals, they got used to. -2010-

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.
