Radioactive Love

the powers that be

are always telling you and me

who to love

they say

two women are a sin

and two men are a sin

almost any relationship we’re in

is radioactive love

according to the powers above

but love has no limits or restraints

people are not some church’s saints

living in an unreal society

full of ridiculous propriety

no rules or money

are needed

love is free

allowing you

to be happy

Free the Frogs!

the swamp committee

held an emergency

meeting one day

snapping turtles

alligators

and fish were there

concerned over the frogs

welfare

someone locked them up

in a wicker basket

with hardly any air

so the swamp committee

gathered to see

how to set them free

the plotters made a plan

to free the frogs

from the man

when the alligator

approached

he ran

the turtle let the frogs loose

saving them from more abuse

the frogs croaked in delight

throughout the night!

Cat Man Do

he tries to rescue feral and lost cats every day

wandering streets and every alleyway

prepared to help any stray

that comes his way

the cat man’s house is full of felines invited to stay

he doesn’t mind his sobriquet

his cat friends never lead him astray

as he goes about his eventful day

The Virtues of a Pug

smushed-faced clowns on four paws that capture your heart

pugs in beige and black, they’re all a special breed apart

some people say that pugs are ugly and snort like pigs

I say no way…those pugs will become like your kids

my little puggie Molly is always looking to play

it’s no stretch to say she can play all day

I’d venture to say that pugs are a popular pet

they’re a great companion and that’s a sure bet!
