Main Question or Discussion Point

The Little Lizard

Nothing skitters like a lizard
Rushing into crispy canyon leaves.

That's as far as I got.
Uh oh here comes a blizzard!
Hurry little lizard leave!
Don't be deceived
By the orange dirt all around,
The blizzard is coming
Find a warm place that's safe and sound.

:biggrin:

I thought there should be a dedicated thread on the little lizard poem where people can continue adding lines to this poem, and we will have a big and complete poem in the end!

In Annie's dreams where lizards leap and time is never spent.
Where bluebirds fly but yet not I, as long as I'm still Clark Kent.
I'd better go in disguise or become a picnic treat.
In Annie's dreams where lizards leap and there's plenty of honey to eat.

Filthy, dirty smut. Give us another verse, Jimmy.

Annie's a dreamer as Jimmy said,
But there's a screw loose somewhere in her head.

Annie thing went all over my head,
sure she was an airhead,
but O! poor lizard
why would you get deceived by those orange blizzards,
now look what has happened to you

Where peaches have fallen from boughs laden low
Annie counts fruit flies and honey does flow.
At this lizard's picnic the flies are the meat
And flies suck the peaches all tender and sweet.

The sun stabs a shaft through the peach tree's green leaves
A lizard leaps licking a fly, like the thieves
That picked Annie's pocket, her honey jar gone
There's no rest for fruit flies, in dreams on the lawn.

Oh little lizard you are so free
Sometimes I wish that could be me
Going to and fro in the sun
So cold blooded yet so fun

Poignant.

In Annie's dreams where lizards leap, where eggs are green as ham.
Where the egg becomes a caterpilar, and eats up all that am.
Where I am what a yam with my eyes popped out,
In Annie's dreams where lizards leap, and you had best not pout.

Lying on strawberries pressed by her weight
Annie counts lizards and ponders their fate.
She's sticky with fruit juice, her jeans are stained red.
More peaches keep dropping and burst on her head.

She dreams she's a lizard afraid of a man.
She scurries and zig zags, caught out with no plan.
She leaps up the tree trunk and climbs toward the sky,
A lovely escape: she turns into a fly.

There was a little lizard from Nantucket
Whose tail was so short he could duck it

Beautiful Zshoe. :smile:

WOW this is so great!

And flies into the night
Upon the aethers of the air
She knows no destiny
She knows no fear
When fate calls her name
And the time of rest is near
She will hide within herself
In the place of her tears

Probably better than being a poet magnet.

I'm not sure, but I ponder, as I raise my pinky to the corner of my mouth, if I should use this new found mojo for good or.......eeeeevvilllll?

Probably better than being a poet magnet.
Since 94.7865% of all poems are written by chicks, the difference between a chick magnet and a poet magnet is probably not significant.

Little lizard in the night
Chose to live on Trinity Site
When Oppenheimer came to play
Little lizard blew away

Like a mix of "The Tyger" and "Georgie Porgie".

Mojo, by it's nature, should never be used for good :devil:
