We were in a mess

From inside the cup he felt something

our ski's were waxed, and as

Kiss by Anonymous
sending you a kiss
That with land on your knee
Climb up your leg
Scramble over you back
And hide in your hair.
Then, when you are about to fall asleep,
It will bite you gently on your neck
And whisper in your ear, ‘I love you’.
In a house the size of a postage stamp
lived a man as big as a barge.
His mouth could drink the entire river
You could say it was rather large
For dinner he would eat a trillion beans
And a silo full of grain,
Washed it down with a tanker of milk
As if he were a drain.

Summertime is Here
My tongue is a piece of sandpaper
I’m dissolving into a puddle.

Open me up, my organs are cooked
I think I’m now well done.
You can fry an egg upon my brow
As I melt away in the sun!

Who liked to sleep in a mitten.

So she climbed out as if she’d been bitten.

Never look back
Never look back at your past,
The past is the past,
and nothing at last,
Look into the future,

is you and me forever.
