Yesterday's Poem


My name is Monique la Femme. I am quite unique. I am magnifique. I am very pretty. I am an expert tree climber, and in the summer, I fill my parent's house with butterflies so I can watch them up close. I love butterflies.
Alphonse is my brother. Don't pay too much attention to his mafia talk. He is a big pussycat.

Do you think I am adorable? I do.

When you pet me, I stand on my tip toes like a ballerina. In the morning, I will visit you in the shaving room so that you can brush my furry little cheeks with the special brush, then watch as you sprinkle water on yourself and dry it off with the big towel. I'm still here waiting for more brushing by the way...

Tomorrow's Poem


My name is Alphonse
I'm also a cat
I'm fat
I'm big and orange and I purr a lot
I'm like a big fat happy head of a cat mafia family
I'm very nice and will let you cut in and eat my food if you want.
But really do me wrong and you might wake up sleeping next to the head of a mouse.
Purrow.

Today's Poem


My name is Little Bear,
I am a cat.
My dad opens the blind and I see birds at the feeder,
I want to paint their little faces.
Alright, Alright, I want to eat them.
But which one am I?

Attention Party Goers

I know several certified Accordion Players who are in need of some moonlighting work. Their cars were recently destroyed and they had let their insurance lapse. They are quite good and come with my personal recommendations. Simply place an add in the classifieds 'Accordion Player Needed'.

** Update: Those wishing accordion players for Duck Hunting will need to provide full body armour and ear plugs for the player. Thank you in advance Monsieurs and Madams.

Some Good Krishnamurti Quotes

The function of education is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but be yourself all the time.

You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.
