Ode to Video Games

O, video games O, video games, you’re so fun

I love playing you video games

You look so cool with your views

from the tops of mountains looking down on an alien planet

I love the sound effects that get you into the game

Video games, you make infinite possibilities and wonders possible

And it’s so fun to make you video games and seeing others play you. You are so wonderful

O, video games O, video games you’re so fun

Ode to a Cookie

O’ Cookie O’ Cookie, thank you for being so delicious.

You look so artistically beautiful, and the looks match the looks of a pastry made in a patisserie.

You feel heavy and dense, but you still crumble in my hand.

And you look so yummy, and you feel gooey like honey.

The smell of you baking is so sweet, and it makes my taste buds go wild.

I hear you saying, “eat me,” cookie.

O’ cookie, O’ cookie, thank you for being so delicious.

And thank you for being mine.

Ode to Cosmo

O, Cosmo O, Cosmo, you’re a cute puppy

you searched my bag looking for candies

and found lots of candy

you have so much personality

you run toward that toy

as fast as a tsunami

then fall asleep mid run like a dog with narcolepsy

O, Cosmo O, Cosmo, you’re a cute puppy

Ode to Esther

O, Esther O, Esther, you’re a CRAZY doggo

When you see a stranger who is a boy, you charge-O

Then you nibble at their toes

And bite the nose

And then there is a siren sound in the distance

But the doctor will need assistance

You’re a small doggo, though

But you’re still fierce, doggo

O, Esther O, Esther, you’re a CRAZY doggo
