The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy (Part 5)


There once was a morose melonhead,
who sat there all day
and wished he were dead.

But you should be careful
about the things that you wish.
Because the last thing he heard
was a deafening squish.


To avoid a law suit,
we'll just call her Sue
(or "that girl who likes
to sniff lots of glue").

The reason I know
that this is the case
is when she blow her nose,

kleenex sticks to her face.

Jimmy, the Hideous Penguin Boy

"My name is Jimmy,
but my friends just call me
'the hideous penguin boy.'"

Char Boy

For Christmas, Char boy received his usual lumps of coal,
which made him very happy.

For Christmas, Char Boy received a small present instead of
his usual lump of coal,
which confused him very much.

For Christmas Char Boy was mistaken for a dirty fireplace
and swept out into the street.

Anchor Baby

There was a beautiful girl
who came from the sea.
And there was just one place
that she wanted to be.

With a man named Walker
who played in a band.
She would leave the ocean
and come onto the land.

He was the one that she wanted the most.
And she tried everything
to capture this ghost.

But throughout all their lives
they never connected.
She wandered the earth
alone and rejected.

She tried looking happy
she tried looking tragic,
she tried astral projecting,
sex, and black magic.

Nothing could join them,
except maybe one thing,
just maybe...
something to anchor their spirits....
They had a baby.

But to give birth to a baby
they needed a crane.
the umbilical cord
was in the form of a chain.

I t was ugly and gloomy,
and as hard as a kettle.
It had no pink skin,
just heavy gray metal.

The baby that was meant to bring them together,
just shrouded them both
in a cloud of foul weather.

So Walker took off
to play with the band.
And from that day on,
he stayed mainly on land.

And she was alone
with her gray baby anchor,
who got so oppressive
that eventually sank her.

As she went to the bottom,
not fulfilling her wish,
it was her, and her baby ...
and a few scattered fish.

Oyster Boy Steps Out

For Halloween,
Oyster Boy decided to go as a human.
