The Ghost And The Darkness

Listen humans and you shall hear
Of Tsavo, Kenya where man did
Make man eating lions appear,
In an encroaching railroad bid.
Dubbed 'the Ghost' and 'the Darkness' two
Male lions made mincemeat upon
Hundreds of used to be rail crew,
An unheard of phenomenon.
An impossible mission - yes!
No humans knew the reason why.
Just cranky lions, the best guess.
Hunted down, the lions did die.

At Field Museum, Chicago way,
These maneaters are on display.

Heron Here At - Lincoln Park Zoo

Two black crowned night herons we be,
Spending summers in Chicago,
Where the missus said yes to me,
Couldn't resist me - doncha know!
We built a cozy nest to do
The all in the family thing,
A condo in a tree with view,
Plenty of room for multi wing.
The missus lays the eggs, and then
We take turns on doing chick sit,
Raising feathers and squawking when
Time for the other to be it.

The missus and I fly in zest
To Lincoln Park Zoo summer nest.

We May Be Little

We may be little, not to tall,
but the love we share is above all.
To be little is just fine,
if I were tall I'd run, and hide.
Short people are here to stay,
so giants get out of our way.
Trampled in life by big people's laughs, because they think we are so small,
they think they are so smart, just because they are tall.
Ha! ! I say to these giants, for short is all right,
and if they don't like us because of our height,
We won't go down without a fight.
(I wrote this back when I was a teenager, and living in Chicago.

My First Pretzels

My first pretzels
on an air vessel
My mind I shuffle
but it's as a dumble-
Will I stumble
Will my world crumble?
Will I stay humble
As my experience double?
Will it be a dazzle
Or just a hassle?
