I’ve been back in creative mode and it feels good.
In the past month, I’ve written My Nose Knows and Of COURSE I did my homework.
I’m also working on a new book – Cassidy and the Magic Skunk’s Button.
Soon, I’ll start reading and posting those here and on da tube.
For now, here’s the latest homework.
Note that the first and last lines rhyme… is that elegant or what?
My Homework?! Of COURSE I Did It!
…by Doktah McSteviePoo
I’m overcome with sorrow
I worked all night, a wondrous tome
Hey, maybe when I tripped and fell
The pages slipped into a well.
‘cause it was here when I left home.
Afterwards I can’t be sure
A killer dog, all fangs and fur
Leapt for my throat and tried to bite.
My homework slipped right out of sight.
I would have stopped if I had known
and let that dog chew to the bone.
My work was swell
Each part complete
You would have had a wondrous treat
I can’t believe you missed the chance
Perhaps it was the avalanche.
Snow was piled to the sky
And it let loose as I walked by
Stones and slush came crashing down
It must have wiped out half the town.
At least it scared that dog away.
The things I’ve had to face today!
But wait, I’m sure I had it when
I headed off to school again
Checking that the spelling’s right
When suddenly – a blinding light
Sizzling fire drove me back
Oh NO!!! An alien attack!
I ran down streets stained red with blood.
Thought I was safe, but then a flood!
A wall of water crashed over me
My homework, where? I couldn’t see.
I swept up on a sunny beach
My homework lay just out of reach.
I scooped it up and headed here
But then I felt a flash of fear
Some cannibals caught sight of me
They grabbed their pots.
I had to flee.
Arrows, lions… I dodged them all.
To turn my paper in on time
And show you all my work sublime
Perhaps it slipped out in the hall.
May I have until tomorrow?
