Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Pie In Variety)

I saw with my little eye-

A piece of pumpkin pie.

.

I saw with my little eye-

A piece of chocolate pie.

.

I saw with my little eye-

A piece of mincemeat pie.

.

I saw with my little eye-

A piece of lemon pie.

.

I saw with my little eye-

A piece of pecan pie.

.

I saw with my little eye-

And decided that I could

not make up my mind, as

to which type was my

favorite kind of pie.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 415 (Goodfellows Toy Drive)

Back in 1911, it began-
Still going on today,
bearing a strong, generous,
hand.
.
A shoe-shine boy, who
would not participate
in a Christmas delight-
Through the generosity, of
others, felt a shining bright
light.
.
For Houston Chronicle, City
Editor, George Kepple, saw
the little boy’s plight-
And, set out immediately, to
set things right.
.
He passed a hat around, to
the Houston Chronicle reporters,
in order to collect money, for the
little boy-
Yes, indeed, and then they went
out and bought him a toy.
.
Goodfellows, is the name, that this became-
And, the lives of many children, since
then, has never again been the same.
.
A toy, for every single needy child-
A strong sentence, to put it mild.
.
Christmas is for children, and Goodfellows
ensures, that the statement stands true-
It’s up to everyone, to participate, in this
wonderful program, to do as we should,
naturally do.
.
Back in 1911, it began-
Still going on today,
bearing a strong, generous,
hand.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Grandmother’s Baking For Thanksgiving)

She labored in the kitchen all morning-
Because the Thanksgiving holiday was getting ready to sing.

She always cooked from scratch-
With the latest turkey that she happened to catch.

Of course in recent years the one found-
At the grocery store on the corner round.

Not like during her childhood where her daddy went outside
And chopped off the turkey’s neck with great pride.

For the family had fed the turkey all during the year-
So that it would get fattened up for the proper moment clear.

The feathers would then be plucked and made ready-
To head towards the oven where eventaully the family would see-

It graciously decorated on the table-
After being carved, all would eat as much as they were able.

She labored in the kitchen all morning-
Because the Thanksgiving holiday was getting ready to sing.

 

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # (02) Vincent Price Scares Us To The Max

Vincent Price scares us to the max-
The House of Wax.
.
To try and sit still-
House on Haunted Hill.
.
The nerves do hum-
The Pit and the Pendulum.
.
To hold your breath-
The Masque of the Red Death.
.
To sit in awe over and over again-
The Raven.
.
In your seat to stir-
The Tingler.
.
Oh, my gosh, how could that happen
and why?
The Fly.
.
More terror as it were-
The House of Usher.
.
Vincent Price scares us to the max-
The House of Wax.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 664 (Those Houseshoes)

There was an old woman who didn’t live in a shoe-

But, apparently wearing the house kind, was her

favorite thing to do.

.

She had many pairs that she would switch around-

So that no worn out spots would be found.

.

Every once in a while, she had to go out–

Leaving the idea to wear the houseshoes,

to take another route.

.

Other kind of shoes, she did own-

But, the love for them had never grown.

.

Not like the comfortable houseshoes,

that she wore around the house-

No one to deal with, just the retired

spouse.

.

So, on the days that she had to go

out, and take care of business-

She would wear the high heels or flats,

none the less.

.

But, as soon as she got home, she’d

kick them to the closet-

And, quickly for her houseshoes is what

she would get.

.

There was an old woman who didn’t live in a shoe-

But, apparently wearing the house kind, was her

favorite thing to do.

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 # 800 (The Candy Store)

To choose a candy, there are so many picks-

Depending on my mood, I may settle, for a Ferrero Rocher, or a Twix.

.

Perhaps, I will choose a Milky Way-

A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, on another day.

.

A Butterfingers comes to mind, when the sweet

tooth creeps-

On the other hand, so does a Peeps.

.

There comes that moment, when I wish, I wish-

To go on ahead, and bring out the Swedish Fish.

.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that Jelly Belly Beans-

Are not just for the younger set, not just for the teens.

.

Sour Patch Kids, are also part. of my style-

Until that moment, when Junior Mints are

enjoyed, for a while.

.

There comes the time, when I yearn for a Starburst-

Or into the middle, of a Snickers, I am fully immersed.

.

Twizzlers to chew, and Reese’s…

.

To choose a candy, there are so many picks-

Depending on my mood, I may settle, for a Ferrero Rocher, or a Twix.
