Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (A Planned Date)

 

The day will come-

That come for all not just some.

 

When death does arrive-

Not softly but in full drive.

 

With no time spent-

Making an appointment.

 

Simply out of the blue-

With no reason or rhyme to accrue.

 

To be cremated for all it is worth-

To turn back to nature, back to earth.

 

And when the time is just right-

To sprinkle my remains on a certain site.

 

You know which lighthouse I am talking about-

In Louisiana without stalling, without doubt.

 

For I have been drawn to that location all of my life-

It brings me peace, it relieves the ultimate strife.

 

Of course it would only be a temporary meeting place-

While I wait for that judgment to make its face.

 

With my arms stretched out like no other-

For my long long missed and passed brother.

 

To Heaven a traveling companion-

Together to get this last flight done.

 

Until then I shall keep fully in hand-

The knowing of this well thought out plan.

 

To be cremated for all it is worth-

To turn back to nature, back to earth.

 

The day will come-

That come for all not just some.

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 # 919 (To Act In Lip Sync)

We’ve all had our say-

About that lip sync, in the modern day.

.

Nothing new, as we are about to see-

For it happened back in the day, in many a movie.

.

Another voice was used for Margaret O’Brien-

While starring, in The Secret Garden.

.

And, yet there was another voice, to be-

When Natalie Wood sang in West Side Story.

.

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,  is for sure-

But, Marilyn Monroe, needed a bit of help, on

the high notes, for the world to endure.

.

So did Deborah Kerr, in The King and I-

The art, to lip sync, was the tool, in order to get by.

.

Amongst many others, to also take their turn-

Was the star in My Fair Lady, Audrey Hepburn.

.

Of course, this was just the movies, and we could

not expect great acting, and bearable song-

So that is why Marni Nixon, was often brought along.

.

Her singing voice carried many an actress, so that they could

pass the test-

A nickname was given to her, The Ghostest with the

Mostest.

.

Thanks to her, we had both good acting, and

pleasant song-

Even if we didn’t realize that there was lip

sync involved, all along.

.

We’ve all had our say-

About that lip sync, in the modern day.

 

 

Modern Mama Goose-On The Loose # 241 (A Safer Texas)

There was a Texas Governor, who
liked to jog early in the morn-
And while this was going on, a brand
new hobby was born.

He’d brought his daughter’s dog with
him to keep him company-
And before long, before they knew
it, there was suddenly three, that
happened to be.

A wily coyote had joined them without
an invite-
And then suddenly the Governor’s
laser-sighted pistol, was brought
into sight.

Just one shot, is all it took, to bring
the wily coyote down-
By this straight shooting Governor,
hailing from Austin town.

Fear of snakes and the sight of other
coyotes in the area, is why he carries
the gun-
The whole State of Texas, is much
safer now, with a job well done.

There was a Texas Governor who
liked to jog early in the morn-
And while this was going on, a brand
new hobby was born.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 407 (Strong Tyke)

They say that it is easy-
To take away candy from a baby.
.

.
But, Charlie, the baby, was extra strong-
And, he knew how to take care, of himself,
he knew how to get along.
.

.
He exercised his hands everyday-
And, they managed to get strong
in an unusual way.
.

.
For when Callie, his 5 year old sister,
happened to come his way-
She couldn’t pull the sucker away from
him, what else could he say?
.

.
She knew then, that from that day on,
she’d have to get her own-
For Charlie, the baby, had set the
this is mine tone.
.

.
They say that it is easy-
To take away candy from a baby.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 401 (Quality Hamburger Time)

There was a time when Grandma took
us, to visit the Golden Arch-
We’d line up inside the house, and out to
the car, in a straight line we’d happily march.
.
We’d get a little hamburger, french fries, and
a drink that was small-
It was delicious, fun, and convenient, for all.
.
And, then, of course, came Ronald McDonald, the
playground, and the Happy Meal-
All over America, for children, this all, became
a great big deal.
.
Before we ate, we always had to check our new
toy-
Making sure it was the right one, for a girl or a
boy.
.
My sister did not want a boy toy-
And if my brother got a doll, there
was no joy.
.

To swap at the counter, was always done-
If we happened not to get the right one.
.
And now things are changing, for if the Happy
Meals are not nutritious, as they should be-
No anticipated toy, will the children see.
.
There was a time when Grandma took
us, to visit the Golden Arch-
We’d line up inside the house, and out to
the car, in a straight line we’d happily march.
