An Ode to...Me, Of Course

An Ode to Me

Roses are red, violets are blue
My favorite thing is avoiding you
You might think that I’m cuddly and sweet
But baby bird filets are my favorite treat

I like chipmunks and squirrels and woodchucks and mice
But my best recipes are not very nice
Cream sauce and pesto, marinara too
If you fall asleep, I might try them on you

I think people like you are a necessary vice
Someone’s got to clean up those leftover mice
I cannot help it, I’m just being me
Now bring me some bacon and a nice cup of tea

I’d love to stay and chat for a while
But I’ve got some business to do on your new tile


  1. Ariel,
    Smokey, Purrl, and I really enjoy your blog. Welcome.

    PS--love the poem

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Meow!

  3. This is hilarious. Where did you learn to write poetry? B.C.

  4. I attended Harvard. I am currently working on my teaching certificate in Poetry, so I can bestow my gift of prose on unsuspecting youth.
