The Tale of the Snow ‘n’ the Chair
seeing the dilapidated;
abandoned falling apart chair;
looks like it will soon disappear.
Snow goes there.
Feels it is not fair!
cuddles into it
freezing ‘n’ protecting it.
Now the chair has no fear;
feels loved and is happy
that the snow is here.

The Tale of Uncle Ben ‘n’ the Fog
Fog’s cogs suddenly stopped
better get something;
to get ’em running again quick.
Uncle Ben found a trick;
used some of his own salad oil;
before you know it;
they were fixed.
The fog comes back now and then.
Since then Uncle Ben ‘n’ the fog
are good friends.

The Legend of the Astronaut Scorpion
There was a scorpion;
who had explored all of the oceans and seas.
He had been told; he had seen all he could see.
His thirst for adventure was not to be quenched;
He heard about somewhere else;
where scorpions had never been.
So he decided to train to be an astronaut; and to find a way to get there.
After much preparation, hard work and concentration.
He got approved and hitched a ride
to the International Space Station.
He got there and was asked to do a space walk;
not for a second did he balk.
Put on the Astronaut’s space suit made to fit him and went out for a walk in space.
Now he is the talk everywhere and all of earth knows his face
A scorpion’s place is not only on earth but in space!

The Tale of the Two Knights and the Ice Cream One day two knights ordered some ice cream;
unfortunately the owner could not remember;
who ordered first.
They argued and argued for a while;
decided to settle the matter,
and put an end to the chatter.
They refused to share;
then it became clear;
the time for jousting was here.
They jousted for some time;
the sun gave them a big smile,
and said thanks for the ice cream
The two selfish knights;
let out a big scream.
