New Pet for Room 5

Hey there little dude
Will you like this classroom home?
Eat a bug, relax
-HaikuHou

Sidenote: my hand looks
pasty, mottled, misshapen
am I a zombie?

Hey little dragon
I see no beard on your chin
Still just a baby?

Dear errant crouton,
your O.C. freedom bid is
thwarted by square sides

Las chicas calientes de Brownsville

George Strait is not gay
men's wishful thinking, we say
Ride 'em, cowgirl, ride!

Apple pie at the rodeo

Tall, filled with goodness
Slice of americana
Just like a cowboy
