Isn't That Just Ducky!

Hello there!

I am helping Nanny!

I am helping her to write!

I make Nanny laugh and laugh because I am so helpful!

I help her take breaks. I help her to play!

You know, playing is much
more funner than work!
Let's play, Nanny!

Let's play now! Right now!

Let's play right now this minute!

Tap, tap, snuffle. Tap, tap, snort.

Let's play!

<sigh> <snort> <tap, tap, tap, tap...>

OK, I think I have helped enough today!

Isn't that just Ducky!

Mother Doesn't Want a Dog

Mother doesn't want a dog.
Mother says they smell,
And never sit when you say sit,
You know, Nanny, it really
could be worse!
Or even when you yell.
And when you come home late at night
And there is ice and snow,
You have to go back out because
The dumb dog has to go.

Mother doesn't want a dog.
Mother says they shed,
And always let the strangers in
And bark at friends instead,
And do disgraceful things on rugs,
And track mud on the floor,
And flop upon your bed at night
And snore their doggy snore.

Mother doesn't want a dog.
She's making a mistake.
Because, more than a dog, I think
She will not want this snake.
