The King Cake Baby
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

As January 6th approaches
A cautious excitement fills the air...
For all throughout New Orleans
Arrive the King Cakes with Mardi Gras flare...

As the King Cake boxes arrive
At schools and offices all around...
We cut the King Cakes and sink our teeth
Into a delicious sugary mound...

The Mardi Gras Fountain
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Who remembers when our parents...
After the dinner dishes were all put away...
Would discuss together as a family...
For that perfect ending of the day...

After we bathed and brushed our teeth...
Put on our clean footy pajamas...
We grabbed a bunch of warm blankets...
And fresh cocktails for the mommas...

My Mardi Gras Mary
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

When it’s Carnival time
You can keep your vodka cranberry...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

When da flambeau start dancin’
And da Bonez Men get all scary...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

Party Gras all night till you wake the cemetery...
Dat’s when I grab for my Mardi Gras Mary...

A Mardi Gras Tree
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

I think that I
shall never see...
Anything as cool
as a Mardi Gras tree...

They grow in New Orleans
nearly every Spring...
As the bands start marching
in full swing...

Come Bite The Apple
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

It started completely innocent
With all the best of intentions...
We were both working really hard
On our mutual abstentions...

We went together as friends
To her first Mardi Gras ball...
The furthest thing from my mind
Was that I was going to quickly fall...

Mardi Gras Ladders
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

It’s an annual tradition...
For generations past...
This ain’t our first Mardi Gras...
And it won’t be our last...

We all arrived early...
At least a week or more…
To set up our Mardi Gras ladders...
Just like our parents did before...

Yardi Gras!
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Yardi Gras, Yardi Gras
We love our Yardi Gras!
YARDI GRAS!

When da chips are down...
And we’re feeling blue...
We all come together...
It’s just what Who Dats do!

Whether it’s a hurricane...

My Mardi Gras Angel
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

“Throw me something Mister!”
She hollered from the heavens up above...
Some pretty beads...
As she quietly pleaded...
Or maybe a turtle dove...

We lost her way too early...
She was a gift from God...
A beautiful child...
Both sweet and mild...

The King and I
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

There once was a king
Who was pretty funny...
He wore whites tights
And was tight with his money...

His scepter was small
But his ego was big...
He wore sparkling clothes
And sometimes a wig...
