I am… I am but the stardust that tumbles I am but the twig that snaps beneath your umbels…

Mollusca Mary Shelly

Mollusca Mary Shelly

Mollusca Mary Shelly lives in the Canterbury dell
and each and every morning she rings the fairy bell…
which whispers the sweet words of farewell,
to the night stars and their magic spell.

The Unrequited Love of Drucilla Constance and Juno Fritz!

Drucilla Constance was smitten with an adventuresome huntsman named Junious Fritz
Who had a magic and bewitching bird-heart, unfortunately, there was an invisible hitch ~
Constance’s mother was a grabby, grubbing and gluttonous, witch!
Which certainly wasn’t going to bode well for young Mr. Fritz

Yes indeed, you guessed it right, the old witch had a definite plan!
Even more mischievous than the most mischievous gingerbread man
For make no mistake, she wanted that magic bird-heart, even more than she wanted, well, the capital of Saipan!

So by some arm-twisting and quite a bit of pinching, she forced poor Drucilla to meet her young beau by the pudding pie tree,
With a tangy tart made from the fruit of a most poisonous orange and green colored bee!
Which as you might not have guessed, smelled as sour as a Siberian stinky-winged pea!

Although, the Young Huntsman took no notice as his breast violently fluttered thrice
Out flew his bird-heart like a strange electromagnetic-al device
And within two minutes his heavy head was plopped upon a patch of Spanish cabbage and Chinese fried rice.

The Umbrellaman!

O’ the Umbrellaman is all sweetness and light,
Why he is nothing like a dark midnight fright…
And he’ll always be there to wish you a very good night
with a cheeky little kiss and some Turkish delights!
