World-Class Nibble!

Kevin van Aelst


Kevin! I'd be gratified
If you'd cast modesty aside
And give me access to your teeth,
Those above and those beneath!
You must be the best of chew-controllers,
Keeping in check those twinkling molars!
I could nibble the Pacific Ocean
With one great snapping-turtle motion,
For, after all, the Ocean's wide;
I could fit the great chunk inside
One cheek, turning my attention
To something smaller in dimension!
The Atlantic wouldn't be too tough,
Although I'd find it hard enough!
But the English Channel would make me quibble
With having to do a ratty nibble.
And the Suez Canal is, simply, wee,
And it would prove too much for me!
One canine tooth would be required
And the nibble would be, well, inspired!
Kevin! I'd be gratified
If you'd cast modesty aside
And admit a little blade was used!
All right Kevin!
You're not amused!

UNDERGROWTH

No wonder they believed, as I know, for sure, they did,
That The Little People lived down in the grass!
They imagined little houses, little gardens, little paths,
And little tinkling voices, just like glass.
As the green grew deeper, deeper, more mysterious it seemed,
And they dared not part the bushes and explore,
For they knew that Faery Magick could carry them away
And their loved ones would be seeing them no more.
Oh that emerald Fairy-Land! We too once felt it true.
We too were Changelings, not quite of this Earth.
And still I can imagine them watching me from below,
And I hear the scented music of their mirth.
