Meaty Elk

The word is wapiti (an elk)

Never put colorful graffiti
On the side of a wapiti.
It will make him less meaty
Like a bowl with one Wheatie.

The word is: campy (comically exaggerated)

By a cabin in the cold morning air
I yelled "hello-o-o, is anyone there?"
A campy echo came back
To that little brown shack.
It said, "just me, a big grizzly bear."

OK, so I changed this poem just a tiny bit!

A new word for your vocabulary is coomb (a narrow valley)

The new bride met the groom
Who's name was [Ben] Boom
At the end of a long coomb
Next to President Grant's tomb.
We'll have to assume
She said va va voom
Since she's the one whom
Would soon make him vacuum,
Clean up the master bathroom,
And sweep with a bristle broom
Every dirty, dusty, dingy room.
This bachelor met his doom.

Lollop At Your Own Risk

A new word for the day is lollop (to loll, or lounge)

Don't ever try to whollop
Your kids when they lollop,
Or when they try to doll up
Like an English trollop.
Instead simply call up
A mean Sunrise Mall cop.

Dang that Prang

I am back with the word of the day. It is prang (to cause to crash)

The midnight train began to clang 
When the foul Sleepy Hollow gang
Rode up on palomino and mustang
Their blazing guns going bang, bang
Causing the chugging train to prang.
On Monday Loredo's church bells rang
As folks watched the desperadoes hang
While the town's choir heartily sang
Even kids watched the whole shebang.

Kent is Sorry!

The word is dilatory (tardy)

Kent Blair was so sorry
He made up a big story
On why he was dilatory,
For the dinner was done
And he missed all the fun
Even the chicken cacciatore.

Mikie on his Trikie

The word is bikie (a biker)

A young Anderson named Mikie
Wanted to be a cool bikie.
Heck's Angels didn't likie
Mikie on his shiny red trikie
And said "go take a hikie!"
