Fallen Star (Humor)
Far from the enchanted forest I do dwell,
Yet I have many wonderful stories to tell.
On this night, I gazed forlornly to the skies.
From the moon's face, the stars came alive.
Depressed am I for my star is no more.
It fell from the sky to my own front door.
For as bright as it might have seemed,
It now has very little substance or gleam.
What in the world does all this mean?
In a madden haste I slid on my jeans.
Into the dark of night I did wantonly go,
Towards the calls of the ranting crow.
With a fallen star, you can make wish,
Where once stood my satellite dish.
When I arrived, I found one elf,
He said he liked to keep to himself.
He said to me what my wish would be,
I told him, I wished that crow would stop cawing at me.
He said fine and pulled out his gun,
Shoot that crow, now we are less one.
