SOMEWHAT SILLY
Do anteaters eat aunts?
What a wildlife to live!
And of uncles, would they flaunt
A tongue so fickle, as to give,
Riddles to every question asked?

Chased by the pride of lions

Truly, i'd rather be an aardvark
Running fast and burrowing deep;
So grandma can sing me to sleep.

  3. I'm liking your poem, Gillena. For some reasons I have a soft spot for grandmothrs and aardvarks.
    Just last year I learned that anteaters and aardvarks are not the same. They are altogether different species, not related then, and aardvarks are them only living members of their specie.

  8. Grandmothers have such magic to make everything better, don't they? May we all find that kind of wisdom one day. For if we do, pride will never be fast enough to get us.

  9. P.S. Your link for Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month was posted on the wrong post. I went ahead and deleted that message, and posted the link to your poem on the post for the prompt. I would hate for people to miss your words. Thanks a bunch for participating! ♥
