The tree was big, the tree was tall and now I hope the tree does not fall.

I want it to live.

Who would want it to die? The tree is so pretty. Just add a skirt. 

A tree with fashion! 

Look at it work, and work it to the dirt.

I am a special child.

I am a good and wonderful child.

When I laugh, I make people happy.

When I smile I light up the room.

I am smart and can do many things

One day, I’ll show the world

How great I am!

What IF

You were old

You were young

What IF

Tomorrow was your 

LAST DAY

You could Live Forever.

What if you were not you?

I look in the mirror

And what do I see, 

I see me

No one else can be.

I am beautiful

I am glad to be me.

My hair, my face, my personality

My size, my shape

The color of my skin

All make up me

Inside and out.

This poem will be concise

As I offer this advice

If your life feels like a slog

Make friends with a helpful frog.

Ribbit.

My Name is Michelle 

To sweet Juliet, Romeo once said, “A rose by any other name would still smell the same.” 

My name is French for Michael

God’s warrior angel

He slayed Satan, that nasty ol’ devil.

Michael literally means “Who is like God?”

A rhetorical question, Michael asked while Satan clawed.

My name is a song

Written by the Beatles.

Drinking Dr. Pepper…

M.Roberti


Dr. Pepper hot

and

Dr. Pepper cold

Drinking Dr. Pepper never, ever gets old.


Dr. Pepper north

and

Dr. Pepper south

Drinking Dr. Pepper always quenches my mouth.


Dr. Pepper left

and

Dr. Pepper right

Drinking Dr. Pepper every day and every night.


Dr. Pepper apart

and

Dr. Pepper together

We’re drinking Dr. Pepper in all kinds of weather--

And that makes me smile.

Disingenuousness and Presumptuousness by M.G.Roberts

Here’s a little story about how one trait deceived another, because the other was too egotistical to see.   


Disingenuous and Presumptuous 

were the best of friends 

and

Everywhere Disingenuous went, 

Presumptuous would attend.


While one was Insincere, 

the other was Brazen

But both were the epitome 

of their lowly station.


One day, Disingenuous, 

that Dishonest devil

Said to Presumptuous, 

the Overconfident fellow

“I like that I’m deceitful, 

and that no one can tell;  

and oh! by the way 

I think you are swell!”


Presumptuous was honored 

by the words of his friend

And recited a little poem 

of which he had penned.


There is no one in the world 

that’s quite like me,

And Disingenuous, my buddy,  

I know you’ll agree

That I’m greater than a mountain, 

and stronger than the sea.

And when I look in the mirror, 

I always laugh with glee

For I’m one of a kind, 

a pure pedigree!


Disingenuous clapped 

and yelled, “Bravo!” 

“I’m your greatest fan,

just so you know

and I will feed you well

by inflating your ego.

Upon this I swear,

for it’s my new credo.”



Presumptuous was honored 

by his buddy’s words

And together they frolicked 

like a pair of nerds.


But Presumpt was egotistical, 

and too arrogant to see

That Mr. Duplicitous was deceptive 

and so crafty.


So Disingenuous fed his friend’s fat ego

Until some time had passed.  

And

Presump’s head

grew as big as Idaho! 


Well, one day there was a contest 

Of which Presump was a part

He had to demonstrate his trade, 

his passion, and his smarts. 


And when the final time came, 

To announce the winner

With bated breath 

Sat both the sinners.


And when it wasn’t Presumptuous


Disingenuous rolled

LAUGHING and Guffawing 

Like a treacherous troll. 

But poor, sad, Presumptuous 


Was as unhappy as could be

And hid his deflated head

now the size of a pea. 


So let that be a lesson I hope you learn

that

Disingenuous friends will always burn…


Remember to remain always humble and true

A testament to yourself, that you are you!

Candy

By M.G.Roberts

The Institute of Confection

Is where I acquired my noble degree

Yummy was my major

And chocolate, my specialty.

As a consummate connoisseur,

And academic authority,

Non-pareils and nougat 

Are delightful when

Good and Plenty.

But I have a tale to captivate

One of a happy calamity.

A chimerical story not of casserole

or a bowl of Chop Suey.


There once was a man named Oh, Henry

Who walked with a striped Candy Cane.

He fought off fierce Kit-Kats and Gummy Bears

Before achieving much fortune and fame.

His best friend was a little chap

Who went by the name--Junior-mint

And together they climbed many mountains of Mounds

And Skittles of every color and tint.

One fateful day they went a-walking,

When they suddenly came to a stop.

It was there they meet young Miss Tootsie Roll

And her sweet sister, Miss. Lollipop.

Tootsie invited them to dinner;


“But when?” asked Mr. Oh, Henry.

“Now and Later?” she exclaimed

With a Cheshire grin,

“But not before you come marry me!”

So they married right then


With all their family and friends

And shared a drink from a Peanut Butter Cup.

The M&Ms were there

Along with the little Lemon Heads

And the Dum-Dum family of pops.

The Snicker bars snickered


When it was most boldly announced

Among tears of Almond Joys.

That Miss Tootsie and Mr. Oh Henry

Would be having twins, Mike and Ike

Green and red little baby boys!

(Part Two: Peppermint Patty's Party on Fifth Avenue coming soon!)

Oh how do you know that he is full of woe

And that he is full of despair and sorrow. 

By the way he hangs his head? or how he lays in his bed with his face in the pillow. 

for  His inner monologue is darker than the storm clouds and as wild as the wind that would cause them to billow

But his friends see happiness and joy and someone who is not easy to annoy

He puts up a facade with his smile and nod. His personality the opposite of coy

He talks friendly and is fun, someone who embodies the sun. and that the people enjoy

The people are kind and don't pay him any mind. although  

He is sad and full of woe.
