It’s about a dog.”

And goes to the moon.”

Smaller than you are!”

Walku 103 (And Really Out)

It’s the quality that counts –
And it’s there ‘I’ win!”.

Sleep will not visit

It shall not stay a short while

Never mind a long!

-/-

EEP!

Eep!

It’s 2014 and ‘I’ am commemorating ‘Eep!’

Look before you leap

As still waters run deep

Swear words go bleepity-bleep

Climb the paths upon mountains steep

Who knows what is out there for you – take a Peep

you can only sow from what you reap (and don’t fear the reaper)

When in bed and counting sheep / Pray the Lord your soul to keep

Roadrunner and his immortal ‘Beep! Beep!’

And our little lives (and this poem) are ended with a sleep

(zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
