practical fox

why oh why do they call me sly
i simply want a meal
not something that I make myself
but something that I’ll steal
i call myself more practical
and think they should be glad
they made too many sandwiches
and in an hour they’ll go bad

sixes

the number six is maybe the best
six six six six six six six
better than prime it’s evenly¬†perfect
every number wants to be six
superior highly composite six
perfect harmonic divisor six
six six six six six six six
so many sixes i might get six

pinky toes

my pinky toes point upward
up upward to the sky
from above they look so silly
and even more so from the side

they look a little iffy
and pretty out of place
they’re rather super funky
pointing up to space

i’ve never really used them
except to draw a crowd
but even though they’re useless
they make me very proud

uniqueness is a blessing
no matter what the form
it’s the perfect way of living
divergent from the norm

parched

oh desert dry desert
would you have just a tiny bit of water?
i’m afraid you make living quite grim
even the oases are seeing things
might you spare just a drop or two of rain?
even a half would be fine
without just a drip, not even a sip,
surely the cacti will die
my skin is like toast
burnt like a roast
gasping for liquid relief
i’m really quite desperate
please show me a creek!
this could be the end for me
