Strolling though the jungle in a warm summer night,
I’m enjoying the breeze in the waning light,
Endless valleys and limitless stones
These bones- these bones they walk alone
Nocturnal animals are questioning my senses,
Night owl is out with his moves so pensive
Off the sycamore and red oak tall shadows fall,
Hiding the wolf and his soulful call.
Lake loon and turtles are making their splashes,
As into the water the bullfrog dashes,
Clicking of bats flitting in the air,
Chirping of crickets and the huffing of a bear.
I stop for a moment to listen to it all,
And I cannot begin to recall,
A better symphony than I hear tonight,
As I walk through the woods in a warm summer night
I always dreamt of being a martial artist
But I couldn’t hit a punch
I wasn’t that fit, you know
My body ached in doing a crunch
One day I thought of training my pets
I called them in the meeting room
To fulfill my foolish ambition
But they didn’t seem excited maybe due to inhibition?
Still, I trained my cat in karate.
My frog in kung fu.
I made sure my
hamster knew taekwondo.
I thought they’d be black belts soon
made them watch TV;
some Jason Statham movies,
and films with Bruce Lee and Jackie.
I made them practiced their punches,
their blocks, and their kicks
until they were masters
of martial arts tricks.
You’d think they’d be good now
at least guarding my house,
but, yesterday evening,
they ran from my mouse.
Oh boy! He’s a crack-up, my mouse.
I laughed at his prank.
Do you think it’s weird that
my mouse drives a tank?
