Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.

After A While A Crocodile Will Smile

After A While A Crocodile Will Smile

A croc's skill is to kill
A croc's thrill is to fill
A croc's tummy
With soMEthing yummy.
Oh no, he has his sights on ME!
It is my skill to avoid and flee
And leave a void in his digestive tract
For if I fail to flee it will be my final act.

I thought that a Kiswahili version would be useful

Ujuzi mamba ni kuua
msisimko mamba ni kujaza
mamba ya tumbo 
Na kitu ladha. 
Msaada! Ana me ajili vile lengo!
Ni ujuzi wangu ili kuepuka na kukimbia
Na kuondoka utupu katika matumbo yake
Kwa maana kama mimi kushindwa kukimbia itakuwa kitendo yangu ya mwisho.

Kiswahili . . . . I thought that was a curry from the local Indian restaurant which I am off to tonight for a meal, but not a Kiswahili. It does look a bit like a Buddhist chant

Remember Mr ESB . . . . Never Smile at a Crocadile

Hang on I think I mean crocodile . . . . DAMN

Rob: Crocodile ... Crocadile.... I would have even understood Crocudile.
For I am able to
Understand Things that others might misconstrue
When it comes to misspelled crocs or frogs or lizards, tooz
Or other names with a great confuse
For I have drank today t00 many brews.

... while cooking lasagna. Dang, no rhyme

And who exactly, would the Kiswahili version be useful for?

Lily Jo:

Who, you ask, needs Kiswahili croc instruction?
That, my friend, is an easy deduction.
If you are from the Central African Eastern region
And you don't want to be reptilian eaten.

Glad to see you tied one on. While cooking, the best time.

Yes, it was. I made sure that I didn't need to drive anywhere. My lasagna turned out nice; I added a minute to my previous bake time.

I am also in the process of linking my poetry blog entries together. This project is only partially finished. A "Poetry LINK" at the bottom of the blog entry points to the next older piece of poetry.
