Christmas Time Imagination

On a cold Christmas Eve I was asleep in my bed

With visions of gumdrops dancing in my head

When I heard a loud whistle and my home began to shake

I went outside to see the Polar Express, for so long I thought it was fake

All aboard the conductor shouted, so I jumped up and went inside

In the first train car was Frosty the snowman doing the electric slide

He gave me a nod and a wink as I walked by

Then Jack Skellington threw a snowball that hit me in the eye

I laughed and a snowball fight ensued, me and Frosty on one team

Jack and Sally on the other, the fight ended when Sally busted a seam

I heard some thudding on the roof so I went to take a look

Sneaking from car to car was the Grinch and Captain Hook

I climbed on the roof and found a sword, hook was no match for me

Especially when John McClane jumped down from a passing tree

We locked the Grinch and Hook in a car and went to speak to the conductor

the train came to an abrupt stop and I saw a sleigh being pulled by reindeer

Santa had arrived and landed as we exited the train

He bellowed a “Ho, ho, ho” as presents began to rain

I picked up the one addressed to me and as I tore it open with my hands

My letter to Santa had paid off because inside was a nimbus 2000

Santa nodded and I flew off to my next big adventure

You may question if the events of this story actually occurred

To that I ask if you’re writing a book or reporting the news

If you are title it mind your own business you Scrooge

Queen Elizabeth II The Robotic Superhero

Let me regale you with a wondrous tale of heroism 

QE was a young woman who saw her country dying from Nazism 

She snuck out of the Royal Palace and joined her countrymen 

With a Thompson machine gun in each hand she helped the allies win
If you wonder what happened to Hitler and his mysterious death

He’s fatal mistake was challenging QE, she took his last breath 

But her battle with Hitler left her severely injured 

However with help from scientists she was reengineered 
Once she became Queen she did not stop her heroic acts 

She took down the Berlin Wall in just two whacks 

She saved the Earth from total destruction from meteoroids 

She flew to space and with a cricket bat knocked them back into the void
Rogue aliens once invaded Britain and tried to take over 

But QE sent them packing with one perfectly placed shoulder 

Seal Team 6 gets credit for killing bin laden 

But no one realizes QE had already put a bullet in his noggin 
QE doesn’t save the world for fame or money

She does because the world needs her to ensure its safety 

So the next time you see her in her little coat in hat

Just know you owe her a million thanks and that’s a fact 

Cowboys Never Cease to Exist

There may no longer be a Wild West 

There aren’t any dirt floor saloons 

No towns full of men in vests

No train robbers sleeping under the moon
No longer are arguments settled by duels

No one rides a horse or buggy 

No longer are tasks done with simple tools

This era has simply become a memory
One thing that has survived are cowboys

Men who like to live life their way 

Men who still love life’s simple joys 

Men with no regrets at the end of the day
Cowboys stand up for their morals

They fight when it’s necessary 

They respect elders and girls

having a good meal makes them happy  
Cowboys are a little headstrong 

They Make quick decisions

they don’t enjoy talking for too long 

And they rarely change their opinions 
Some of you may be a cowboy 

Or you may want to be it  

Just remember that pistol isn’t a toy 

And never cross from cowboy to bandit 
Because if you do 

There will always be a cowboy after you 

Esteban the Guardian

There’s a special street in Hell that is littered with Rose petals

But under the petals are thorns of rusty metal 

On this street are many hills and condemned homes

Some are filled with lost souls, others house demon gnomes 
But there’s one house that remains an utter mystery 

Because no one has been inside in over a century 

Outside this home stands a never sleeping guardian 

His name is Estaban, he’s one the angels that fell from Heaven
He was assigned to guard that house by Lucifer 

he has stood vigilant and hasn’t allowed anyone to enter 

The sidewalks are littered with bones of those who tried to pass 

A strike from his sword will break you like cheap glass
There are many stories about what he guards 

But no one dares to challenge Esteban or even play him in cards

He just continues to stand and fight to protect the house 

He even keeps out the hellion version of a mouse 

Lessons Learned the Hard Way

I’ve had numerous people trying to give me advice 
I don’t ever listen and I don’t always turn them down nice 

Sometimes I cuss and pretend that I know it all

When I do I have no one to blame when I trip and fall 
I was told not to run with that crowd, that they were up to no good

And my “homies” left me bleeding when I got knifed in the hood

Why did the guy cut me? Because no gringo was going date his sister

Who knew cholos could be racist. That a Latina dating a gringo was sinister 
I learned that lesson the hard way, I fell hard and hit the floor

I picked myself up and decided I wouldn’t do that any more

I should’ve listened but I didn’t. I have no one to blame 

I consider the pain just payment for playing the game
Walking down the aisles of a grocery store just grabbing a few items

I was told I wasn’t supposed to shop there but when do I ever listen

I go to the cashier and he says no Spanish, no welcome in the store

I reply ¿cuánto cuestas?, he said no gringos and pointed to the door
I was told not to be in that part of town after dark

But I’m a hard headed guy whose name is Mark 

Walking back to my car I heard, “ what you doing here white boy” 

Three black men approach me spitting out racial slurs and say I’m going be their toy 

I ignore the taunts and run past them catching punches as I go 

A bottle hit me in the back, why the hatred for a stranger I’ll never know 
I learned that lesson the hard way, I fell hard and hit the floor

I picked myself up and decided I wouldn’t do that any more

I should’ve listened but I didn’t. I have no one to blame 

I consider the pain just payment for playing the game
You may be wondering what these experiences taught me

One thing I learned is that racism isn’t whites only

That we need more love and less hate on this planet 

I learned that racists have no place in my life and are as useful as a gnat   

Building An Army

For the next few months WTH freed Magicals from prison
Until one day one their numbers had significantly risen

They had amassed a small army and decided to end the war 

 Their problems, Hansel, the SS weapons and whatever else Hitler had in store
They decided the best plan of action was to split into three 

Otto and one group would go after Hansel and set others free 

Abigail would lead a group to destroy the magical weapons factory

Hitler and his personal guard would be for Jack, Henry and Bobby 
Otto took a group of Magicals and tracked Hansel down 

Hansel was hiding in a small muggle German town 

Otto’s group blocked every exit leaving Otto to engage Hansel 

This fight would be a historical magical battle 
Abigail spent weeks roughing up German soldiers and getting information 

She finally found the factory tucked away in mountain 

Abigail knew going inside would be certain death for her troops 

So she decided to blow it up from the attacking the roofs 
Jack, Henry and Bobby shared the last name of Cena

The Cena family knew that once inside it would be like fighting in an arena 

This worried Henry but excited Jack and Bobby 

They found the hotel of Hitler and kicked down the door entering the lobby

One Camp Down

The explosion was caused by the Wand Through the Heart (WTH)
They helped with Storming the Beaches of Normandy to start 

Now they were freeing Magicals from Concentration Camps 

 Magicals cheered for WTH like they were champs
Otto was not pleased when they showed up because they ruined his plan

But his scowl went away when Bobby put a wand in his hand 

Abigail and the others began fighting the guards 

Henry and Jack began dueling Hansel but this battle was hard 
Henry had been disarmed and Jack was being chased away 

Hansel laughed until Otto stepped in and said I’ve been waiting for this day 

Otto had saw his friends die and vowed to avenge there deaths 

He battled Hansel until they were both out of breath 
At this point Jack and Henry had rejoined the fight 

They cornered Hansel with wands at the ready when suddenly there was a light

A jeep full of SS soldiers had appeared and they had special guns 

The guns fired magical spells and forced WTH to run 
WTH apparated to their base of operation and heard a noise 

They had intruders but luckily it was Otto and the boys 

Otto said we want to help you fight and put an end to this war 

Abigail responded if we are going to win we are going to need more
