Hush, Hush Not So Sweet Charlatan

Believe me, there’s so many top-top-top secrets I does knows,

Especially those about friends and foes,

Including my favorite philosophers-Larry, Curly, and Moe.

Yet, I suppose by now you realize your emperor has no clothes,

and even though you knows where I want your nose,

Perhaps for national security sake it’s best if anything confidential to me you don’t disclose.

So this sad-sad-sad saga goes and goes….

Bird Brain

For years I’ve strained and strained to teach my Polly to talk.

Yet all she does is squawk and squawk.

So all my efforts to train her have gone down the drain

Since I didn’t realize she belongs to a different flock,

As no parrot is she but rather a hawk.

Thus I must admit even I now know who is the real bird brain.
