This week has started with a year brand new,
So here is the Eve of Burrito, Part II.
The day began as I walked through the gate,
Opening the Chimp House not a second late.
In this community lives magnificent beings,
When you meet them you’re overcome with feelings.
But this day in particular I’m looking one,
His name starts with a B and he likes to run.
I head through the door and who do I see?
Why, it’s one of my other friends, Mr Willy B.
“Hey you human! I am glad you are here!
There is a peanut out of reach, right over there!”
“Here you go friend,” I say with a smile,
“I wonder if you could help me all the while?”
“I might, but make it quick!
I have neighbors to rile up and doors to kick!”
Willy B is a big mighty man,
So without hesitation, I told him my plan.
“I’m looking for someone whose name starts with a B,
You’ve met him before, though it was not meant to be.”
He looked at me with a stern look on his face,
Then looked around to survey the entire place.
“Ah yes, I know such a person,
They are in the mezzanine, but they can be a diversion.”
Off I went, to the ladder I climbed,
I peeked my head over and who did I spy?
“My sweet Honey B, it’s great to see you,
Could you help me find another friend too?
He’s wild and crazy, and spies all day long,
And just loves Giant Kongs!”
“Oh that guy? Last I saw he was in the window,
But he seemed like he was on the go!
It was nice seeing you too, you bum,
Now if you please, I’m quite busy with this gum.”
I race to the Playroom to see my old friend,
But I’m met with a dead end.
The Party Police Enforcement is on patrol,
And she will not let me pass. She is in control.
“Please ma’am,” I beg her.
“I just want to see the fantastic B without causing a stir.”
“You may only pass if you do this one favor.
Let me groom your boots, and enjoy my labor.”
No matter who you seek, you have to appease the boss,
No matter the quest, no matter the cost.
She pays exquisite detail to her grooming,
To keep all boots clean. I’m assuming.
“The one you seek is in the Greenhouse,
He has not been quiet as a mouse.
Laughing and playing all day,
Sometimes it’s too much, so you will pay.”
I thank her for her service and head outside,
I just hope she hasn’t lied.
I open the door to the this indoor-outdoor space,
There was a flash of fur, seemingly in a race!
Bronx cheers, stomping and breathy panting,
His knack for fun is really uncanning!
He swings from the platform to the door.
Could I ever ask from more?
“Oh Bubba!” I exclaim.
“There’s something first I want to proclaim!
Tomorrow is your birthday, you’ll be 39!
At that age, you are looking just fine!
“There will be everything that you enjoy,
So please when you see it all, don’t be coy.
There will be slinkies, blocks, chase and spaghetti!
Things will be thrown around like confetti!”
“That’s nice and all,” he replied.
“I hope to wake tomorrow and not find out you lied.
But that is all for tomorrow, I’m just focused on now!
So get me some snow, before J.B. gets in the plow!”
I abide his request, and give him a snowball.
One is not enough. He wants it all!
After he savors every last bite of the snowy treat,
It’s off the the races, not one I can defeat.
So I hope you all are prepared for tomorrow!
Fun will be had by all, so be sure to follow!
Happy Burrito Eve, everybody!
