The Scotcheroo by Alex H.
Y’know, people are so weird.
They’re always like, “oh No, I don’t wanna DIE!”
And so, like, being eaten is a bad thing.
What? Not for me.
I was made to be eaten – it’s my destiny.
And people love me for it, too.
And then, it’s like, I become part of them.
So no, I’m not really dying.
The world is coming to an end by Katie L.
The world is coming to an end.
It is destiny that it would.
Sickness, famine, flaming balls of fire. Short lived lives are coming to an end.
There is good new though.
If you believe in Jesus Christ
Your life will not be short lived,
But you will have eternal life.
It is destiny that Jesus will come back,
That He will rule for a thousand years time.
So don’t worry,
The world may come to an end,
But your life with Christ will never end.
Candy on every table by Maria H.
Children need candy at every table,
Piles of leaves under every tree,
Sand at every beach,
Straws in every drink.
Dogs need rawhide bones in their bowls,
Fire hydrants on every street,
Squirrels in every park,
Petting on every couch.
Parents need long hours of sleep every night,
Sick days at every job,
Cars that work every day,
Cameras at every moment.
Hearts need hugs every day,
Air in every breath,
Pain in every life,
Joy in every year.
It is their destiny.
Smoking Clowns by Teresa S.
After the big top is closed, I light up.
All those kids get on my nerves.
Geez. Look at all the teeth they got.
Creepy. And those high voices. Yikes.
They bite, you know, bite hard.
I lost my second toe on my right foot
To a 2-year old in 1972.
Now I wear steel-toed big floppy shoes
Kid comes after my feet, I’m protected.
Mr. Ed’s Destiny by Alex H.
Ugh, what a day-
I think I godda have a smoke,
Maybe grab a Bud from da frig’ r so’n’,
Nhm. I godda remember ta fix that,
- but anyways, what’s on? Aaah, ya stupid-
--hey, what you smallin’ mbout?
So, a’m a “red-neck,” a “blue-colla” or whateve’
DON’T MATTA, I presenally don’t care
What da hell you think.
So I don’t have cable. A’m still smallin’.
So shut up.
