In the Eyes of a Worm

The saying goes
“The early bird gets the worm”,
but that only happens to the ones
who get up late.
The ones who are smart like me
set five alarm clocks,
five reminders to wake up
before the bird.

 

In the Eyes of a Corn Fed Pig

You may think I have no manners,
but it is you with none.
Oh, the mess you create
with all your dirty dishes, pots and pans.
You make eating so confusing,
no elbows on the table,
sit up straight,
chew your food with your mouth closed.
Wow, you make it hard.
Just take a lesson from me
and learn how to do it right,
the food will taste much better.

 

In the Eyes of a Pigeon

All of our life we play a game called
“Pilot to Bombardier”.
Get ready, get set,
there is a target walking down below.
Splat.
Well done my friend,
you have hit another mark.
