Catching Up On ZZZ's

                                                                                                 Julie Kemp Pick

Zero excuses, get some rest
Zoo's open tomorrow, after your test.
Zingers won't distract me,
Zip your lips right now!
Zorro on a zebra,
Zealot on a sow?

Zack, you're on thin ice,
Zelda, you're right behind.
Zipper necks in Zoot suits,
Are only in your minds.

Zoom in on the zombies,
Zig zagging down the street.
Zeroing in on doubtful mommies,
Zesty enough to eat! 


A New Zenith

Zoom in on April 1st,
No fools showed up for the meeting.
Hosts were gathered all about,
Could not have staged a warmer greeting.

Zealous writers all in tow,
Nervous energy glistened.
Arlee Bird tossed out the first word
While everyone attentively listened.

Zipping through the alphabet,
The letters quickly flowed.
Followers danced around the Web,
While melodious notes started to unfold.

Zero days, the end is here,
Alliances formed everlasting.
Safely nestled in outstretched arms,
As this surge that puts the "Zip in my doodah,"
Is now passing.
