Last week Joyce and I got to attend a very special event where we saw--live, in person--the one and only Kermit the Frog! After the show, I sent a poem backstage for him. I hope he liked it!
You can read all about it here:
A Poem for Kermit
Oh froggie! My froggie! Best friend through the years!
With eyes so ping-pongy and white!
The greatest amphibian, top of your peers!
A flippy green froggy delight!
Backstage at the show, or at home in the bog—
Your "pad," or whatever you term it—
There's no cat as cool as this fine famous frog:
The one irreplaceable Kermit!
Although you have flippers, you're unflappable—
Though sometimes you break down and holler.
Your sweet, even temper becomes snappable
When Piggy gets under your collar!
Yet still, you're as sweet as a lime jelly bean!
You're wise, introspective, yet breezy.
I don't know how tough it might be, bein' green,
But Kermit sure makes it look easy!

It's quiet in the woods tonight,
No rustling leaves, no chirping birds,
But if you just keep listening,
Just turn your ears up to the sky
And pretty soon the world around
So let your worries all disperse,
Rows, rows, fix those rows!
Quiz, quiz, take your quiz!
Hands, hands, raise your hands!
Grades, grades, check your grades!

My brand new television set
Clean your room up! Don’t be rude!

Someone rang the doorbell!
Oh once there was (fill in the blank)
Who came from outer space.
He (blanked) on a banana peel
And fell down on his (blank).
The other (blanks) all tried to help—
They gathered all around.
They chanted, “Buddy! (Blank) back up!
Don’t lie there on the (blank)!
The (blank) felt so encouraged
That he got back up again.
He (blanked) his spaceship up above
The little greenish (blank).
He (blanked) a message down to them—
Each one, he hoped to thank.
But sadly, no more words came out—
He simply drew a (blank).

I went down to the beach today

I’m planning out the perfect pranks
Friday, March 18, 2011
I found it in my yard.
I looked straight down, and there it was!
(I didn't look too hard).
I must be really lucky!
They say they're hard to find.
Of all the clovers, four-leafs are
The hard-to-findest kind!
A perfect four leaf clover,
Just sitting on the soil.
So small and green and rarely seen,
Wrapped up in shiny foil!
And when I pull the foil back,
It's chocolatey inside!
My lucky clover makes my day
Four times more yummified!
My luck is really something!
A magic trait, it's true.
Let's hope that if I find some gold,
There's candy in that too!
Try the finest steak in town!
While you're eating, don't you budge!
You can be a pageant judge!
Once a year we take a break
And crown our very own Miss Steak!
She must be tender, never tough.
Slightly plump is lean enough.
Interviews are never wasteful--
Juicy questions, yes, but tasteful.
Sure, we grill them to a T,
But character's a must, you see!
Okay if she's slightly saucy,
Just so long as she's not bossy.
When we're done, we crown the winner.
Then you finish off your dinner.
Some will protest that we treat
All these girls like hunks of meat.
We still feel we're playing fair--
These complaints are extra-rare.
After all, it's all good fun,
And the whole thing's so well-done!
So come to Rusty's, by the lake,
Where pageants are a big Miss Steak.
