WOD Challenge 08-20-21 Colorful Pelicans

The most colorful pelican I’ve ever seen! Photo credit: Unsplash

Pelicans are a gregarious bunch

They fly all together in a hunch

Brown or grey

White or black

Some even have pink

But not usually on their back

Some bills are like rainbows

And others are just plain

They give me such joy

Flying over in a line

They live a long life

Maybe cause they’re social

I’ve even petted one

He was less than vocal

Another I saved

From a fisherman’s line

He was so happy

My thrill was divine!

Now I’m hoping someday

I see one this pretty

Not sure where they live

A zoo possibly?

WOD Challenge 08-17-21 Egg-streme Situation

The eggs are getting frightened

They don’t want to be eaten

They claim they’ve been infected

So that they won’t be beaten.

“Please don’t fry or dye me”,

They cried out as a whole

But Sally just ignored them

Cracking each one in a bowl.

Too bad she ate the tasty guys

For what she didn’t know

They had the Salmonella

Now she’s about to blow!

She runs into the restroom

Her tummy cramping bad

She sits upon the toilet

She’s now feeling so sad

“I wish I would’ve listened.”

Sally thought out loud,

I never should have eaten them

Now feeling less than proud.

WOD Challenge 08-11-21 Strictly Off the Record

Today’s word of the day challenge feature’s the word strictly.

For the Love of Herbs

Strictly off the record, I grow all kinds of herbs,

Some take me to higher ground,

And some just flavor foods.

Harvest time is near,

Drying herbs is easy,

Put some basil in myglass,

Or relax, and feel just breezy.

Please don’t cause a fuss

I grow them for myself

I don’t need the law to come

And put me on a shelf.

What? For basil?

No, you fool, the other herbs I mentioned

Well, had you been more subtle

I never would have questioned!

The Skater

There once was a man named Grizzle

Who’s beard couldn’t be cut with a chisel

He lived in the marsh

But was his life harsh?

When it was icy, he’d be perfecting his twizzle!

Don’t know what a twizzle is? It’s a multirotational, one-foot turn that moves across the ice in the sport of figure skating! 😉
