Lollipop Pole; and it's Fairy ~~ a Ditty Poem for 'Until Later'

Lollipop Pole;
and it's Fairy

Totem Pole's far cousin is lurking near
Fueled by her fairy, waiting to lure you
Boys and girls beware, her danger is near
She's kind, will leave candy and coin for you

But her pole contains the magic power
Pick its fruit, good to the taste, sweet morsels
Bad as Adam's apple, this demon girl
She's bidding for queen, Queen of Boys and Girls

Lollipops are her weapons.  Innocent?
No, not this fairy nor her fruit come free
Their price is tooth decay, the dentist's joy
Tooth Fairy is on our dentists' payrolls
 
Beware of her lure, the Lollipop Pole

Notes: 
1. Searching the Totem Pole animal list (link) did not yield the Tooth Fairy.  But it did include the imaginary animal, the Unicorn
Unicorn
Purity, innocence, dreamer, personal power, gentle, spiritual vision, other realms, faith, healing.
2. Why is the Tooth Fairy not on this list? A creation of dentists, they may also have invented these delightful fairy creatures knowing that they would bring in more $$$$ than their blood sucking leeches could ever (my belief).

Playing Catch Up ~~ a Nice Day ditty/poem


Today I'm laying low, catch up
Playing catch up, bills and phone calls
Grabbed a buy-one get-one coupon
Late lunch with my friend*, mine was free

A grandkid was over tonight
My friend* and she, they baked a cake
No candles in the house, made do
Daughter came, Happy Birthday song

Champagne and cake our supper made
Swam with kid, shower and P.J's
No poem tonight, a ditty here
Play catch up with my Facebook friends

Eating challenge poem - In the Market for Poems

To market she
 
To the market she would go 
Mostly for the samples 
She was a poor thing, stooped 
Lunch on the go they said 

Saving her pennies scarce 
The merchants knew her well 
Showing, giving their wares 
Fruit from all the nations 

 One day she didn't show 
Then the next and the next 
Where's their freeloader friend 
Would she not soon return

Collected money they 
Went to her door they knocked 
Jailed they said, shoplifting 
Sad, to the jail they went 

Jailer said, poor thing stooped 
Her words to them,  "When I
was poor you fed me well 
Visit now, God bless you." **

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
