They’re Everywhere.

Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings.

Every time paper is torn another sprite is being born.

Every time a ship lifts its sail a mermaid grows another tail.

Every time you go downstairs the attic demons come out in pairs.

Every time you use a microwave fairies get together and hold a rave.

Every time a tree is cut a dryad falls on its butt.

Every time a car starts and ogre squats and farts.

Every time there’s a gentle breeze a centaur just had to sneeze.

Every time you spill some salt a jinn sneaks inside a bank vault.

Every time the kettle whistles unicorns mail out epistles.

Every time the air conditioning goes off a dragon gives its skin a slough.

Every time a plug goes into a socket a nixie adds to its docket.

Every time someone scrapes their nails on a chalkboard another hobgoblin joins the horde.

Every time a door is closed a gryphon is indisposed.

Every time someone fries up bacon somewhere a kobold is shakin’.

Every time a soda fizzes a gremlin drops its pants and whizzes.

    Oh great now I have to worry about sprites, demons and jinn!?! Now I’ll think of this every time I use the microwave…

      Yeah, sprites, demons, and jinn are definitely terrible things to worry about, but I’m more worried about the microwave.

    Every time Chris posts I celebrate with elves and ghosts.

      Every time Ann comments…let me get back to you when I can find a magical creature that rhymes with “comments”.
