She of Many Talents

She commands the crowd

Blending more bounce to the ounce

With a golden voice

She performs those risqué tunes

Shaking her ample booty

Little Rascals

Mess cleaned up

Suddenly a crash

A new mess

Bigger still

As a result, she just sighed

Puppies in charge

biographer

A career

So, a choice was made

Pen in hand

Paper bought

Words right from the horse’s mouth

Duh

Lackadaisical

Attitude towards the new job

Was not received well

The

Neighbors

Locked their doors

They could feel the

Disturbance growing

Children everywhere froze

Staring at their plates blankly

It was a fate far worse than death

Strapped in high chairs, there was no escape

Mothers made them eat their vegetables

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Mystery & Attract – Lead Us

When

You were

A small child

What were your dreams

Were you encouraged

To seek them at all costs

To believe in their power

And to rejoice in the magic

Of possibilities tremendous

And so you opened your heart to receive

Good for you and good for the world at large

For it is your example that proves

We can have our heart’s desires

By nurturing tiny seeds

Placing our faith in love

All because of you

Who had some dreams

When you were

A small

Child

Never be a statistic
Give ‘em a good show
Watch their eyes widen in shock
Beat the drum and take a bow
