Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 571 (Far Away From Home)

He must have taken a wrong turn-
And, the idea, of lost, caused much concern.
.
He landed on the New Zealand shore-
When he was spotted, he caused quite a roar.
.
For this far away, from home, it had been at
least 44 years-
Since an Emperor penguin, such as he, had
been spotted, but, it still brought cheers.
.
But, what to do with him, no one did not know-
Surely, nature taking its course, would be the
way to go.
.
Where he came from was dark 24 hours a day-
It just wasn’t natural for humans, to head that
way.
.
He had been eating sand, probably thinking it
was snow-
It would be several weeks before his hunger,
would once again grow.
.
In the meantime, the world is enjoying his
plight-
Perhaps one day, he will return on an
outgoing flight.
.
Antarctica, lost one of its own-
With the Emperor penguin, temporarily
being a special guest, via a New Zealand loan.
.
He must have taken a wrong turn-
And, the idea, of lost, caused much concern.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 841 (That First Day)

As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.

.

Everything is brand new-

With new friends, to acrue.

.

New teachers and a new place-

Time to get comfortable, in this

unfamiliar place.

.

New school supplies, that must be put away-

For use later, on another day.

.

To grit one’s teeth, to make the day through-

To finally go home, and say a big whew.

.

For the second day will be A-ok-

We know where we’re going, because

we went through all of that on the first day.

.

As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.

Three To Do During October (2012)

1. Watch the leaves fall.

2. Enjoy the cooler breeze.

3. Watch scary movies.

===========================

Both old and new-

So many of them to accrue.

t

Three Famous Streets (2010)

1. Main.

2. Pennsylvania.

3. Chocolate.
==================
The original, more than a
century old, Hershey plant
will be shutdown-
Replaced with the new, as
the company has to cover
more ground.

Three That Are Hot And Sticky (2011)

1. Freshly made taffy.

2. Chewed and spit out gum on a sidewalk.

3. That new planet spotted by European astronomers.

============================================

In the right zone for life-

But, uncomfortable enough, to cause much strife.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 642 (That Bridge)

The bridge had to be torn down-

For much wearing down had been found.

.

When the bridge was brand new-

For many years, much traffic it could acrue.

.

But, as time began to take its toll-

Action had to be taken that would be bold.

.

It had been repaired many times, but now

it required much more-

To demolish it, was in store.

.

A brand new bridge would now be conducted-

Over several months it would be constructed.

.

In the meantime, another route-

Would be taken by the bridge crossers

without a doubt.

.

The bridge had to be torn down-

For much wearing down had been found.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 539 (Where’s The Chocolate Milk?)

In the lunch line-
The chocolate milk, I could not find.
.
I looked here-
And, I looked there.
.
I took a big look-
Behind the head cook.
.
I took another look-
In every cranny and nook.
.
I looked under the table-
I looked everywhere that I was able.
.
I asked around-
And, a sad answer was found.
.
No more chocolate milk at school-
For it was a new golden rule.
.
Too much calorie-
Not good for you, not good for me.
.
In the lunch line-
The chocolate milk, I could not find.
