A Lazy Daisy Day

There once was a daisy quite lazy,
Who decided that life was too hazy.
It slept through the noon,
Under the bright yellow moon.

Its petals stayed shut, never crazy,
For opening up seemed too daisy.
It yawned at the bees,
And ignored all the trees.

"Why bother with bloom?" said it, dazedly.
"Just being a bud is amazing
No need for the show,
I'm just fine laying low."

The Mischievous Spoon

A spoon ran away with the fork,
Through gardens they dashed, in New York.
With a clatter and clang,
Escape songs they sang.

But the knife was too sharp for such sport,
And stayed behind, being too short.
He missed all the fun,
Under the moon and the sun.

The dish followed suit with the cup,
Hoping the cutlery would turn up.
To a picnic, they fled,
And danced on the bread.

The Elephant's Pants

An elephant tried on some pants,
And decided to go to a dance.
They split at the seams,
Which led to some screams.

In shock, he did quite the prance,
As ants took their chance to advance.
He shooed them away,
On that fateful day.

Without any pants, he retreated,
His dancing dreams now unseated.
Next time he will find,
Pants of a larger kind!

A Fish Out of Water

There once was a fish out of water,
Whose balance was quite out of order.
On the land it flopped about,
In search of a route.

"To swim!" it shouted, "I oughta,
Yet here I am, a flound’ring flauta!"
It painfully missed,
The wet world of fish.

A pelican gave it a glance,
And thought it could teach it to dance.
With a whoop and a flip,
It found its new trip!

Raccoon's Fancy Feast

A raccoon, in a hat quite divine,
Searched for a five-star dine.
He found a campsite,
And shrieked with delight.

He thought, "This spread is mine!
Oh look, there are chips and some wine!"
He giggled with glee,
As he ate by the tree.

With his belly so round and fulfilled,
The campers returned, looking thrilled.
For their food had been tasted,
Yet no bite was wasted!
