a buzzing bee #1

Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.

Pablo Picasso

there once was a buzzing bee
who a bee did not want to be
for he disliked being busy
and just wanted to be lazy
so from his hive he did flee.

Cheddar Cheese | Limerick

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There once was a silly chili cheddar cheese
Who in his moldy state said to the merry mouse
“Please do not feast upon my flesh
For it is moldy and not fresh.
Lest you want to enter heavens house.”

An Early Bird

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

Dalai Lama

Once, in a small village there lived a man named Shaun.
That always awoke, early before the dawn.
So he could catch worms like an early bird.
Without anyone spying and thinking him absurd.
For eating worms before he began to yawn.

Struggle is a part of life. Learning to struggle well is a reward in itself.

Zat Rana


Once upon a time. A youth in his prime
Lived in a city so divine. That he--
Grew to be bored and became bold--
Enough to rob a boy, not even a year old--
Of his toys. Yet failed in committing such an easy crime.
