To Run Away (From Crocodiles and Alligatas)

Listen now and I shall tell ya
how to run away from crocodiles and alligatas.
If you live where there are flurries
you have no reason to worry.

But if you live where it is hot
and you spy a dreaded croc
who chases you and his lips he licks,
you take a big long stick
find it's nose or eye to hit.

Now to run away in time
away from the alligatas and crocidi.
But do not run in a straight line,
if it is a great huge alliagati.
Yet do run straight with lots of speed
if you meet a crocode.

I warn you now to be safe,
around the crocodiles and alligatas.

Or you could hide
in a tree so tall and high
if you do not want to die,
around the dangerous crocodie.

Do not swim in water deep,
with bare feet,
away from crocodiles and alligatas.
So now you know about these beasts,
with sharp, sharp, teeth.

Now please be aware of how to run away from
crocodiles and alligatas!

Her Prince Never Came

“Her Prince Never Came” by Adrian McGuire, February 2020. Gel pen and pencil

For school Mom made us write a paragraph about dragons. Then she told us to draw a picture representing our ideas about dragons. Most of my paragraph was about how they were dangerous most of all to goats, sheep, and princess. So I drew a picture about how they were dangerous to the princess. (It also shows their ways of cooking).

The Journal of Mr. Roger Mallard, 10/3/19

10/3/19 Dear journal, today when I woke up I went outside. There was flowering daffodils and it was warm.

Around ten we went to a brunch. I lost my appetite again! I mean really, what did us birds do wrong? We went to a Ethiopian church service, it was a good service. Then we hit the road.

We saw Spanish Moss. I read it is a flowering plant that lives on trees, but I don’t really believe it. The true story is this: The Spanish used to own Florida and some of the area around it. One day they captured a big super hairy monster and released it to Florida. It went around Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi, and North Carolina hiding in trees and leaving fur all over the place. You can’t believe all that you read.

It was quite foggy for awhile. We drove for a few hours then stopped in Adairsville, Georgia, got some ice cream, and stopped for bed. There were more peppermints almost as big as me, and I saw my first palm tree; it did not look like hands.

It was a tiring day.

The Journal of Mr. Roger Mallard, 9/3/19

9/3/19 Good morning journal, I woke up today feeling ready to hit the road… after breakfast. Then we went to go get something to eat. I lost my appetite as soon as I saw the hard boiled eggs.

Today we finished going through Indiana, and we went through Kentucky and Tennessee. When we got into Georgia I was amazed, there was green grass and trees with leaves! We stopped at Auntie Michelle’s house and saw our cousins. We had lots of fun, there was an international buffet with Indian and Ethiopian food, it was good. Then we tried different drinks, my favorite drinks were the pink one on the far left and the yellow one second to right. When we got back to our cousins house it was late. I fell asleep fast, I had lots of fun today.

The Journal of Mr. Roger Mallard, 8/3/19

For a bit, Mr. Roger Mallard will give us the privilege of letting us see his journal notes on his way to Florida

8/3/19 Today we have been getting ready to leave, we are going to Florida! I packed sunglasses and a surfboard, I also brought some duckweed for dinner. I don’t think I need anything else.

Now we are leaving! I am so excited I can hardly sit still. I wanted to eat right away but decided not to. I read instead one of my favorite books Agent SNORE: Mission 120418: Take Me Out of the Ball Game by Thor S McGuire. Thor let me borrow it, but he said he was reading Agent SNORE: Mission 121818-121918, Cats Game at Grandma’s house and would let me read it when I came home.

We are stopping for dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant in Indianapolis. I stayed in the car to eat my duckweed but I heard what everyone got. They got Beef Sambussa, a meat filled pastry; Mango Juice; Ye-Kwanta Wot, dried beef jerky stewed in spicy sauce; Mincetabish, diced beef fried in a pan with ginger, onions, cardamom, and green peppers and then sauteed with sauce; Zitzil Tibs, strips of beef marinated in sauce seasoned with onions, green pepper and rosemary. They all came with Teff Bread, a thin spongy bread. They said it was good. Then they had a coffee ceremony with popcorn. They said it was the most relaxing coffee they ever had.

In Scottsville Indiana, we stopped for the night. The desk clerk gave us a free cookie, and there was some peppermints in our room. I was tired, so after a picture I went to bed.

Mr. Roger Mallard will share more later.
