Gunnoe

An algebra teacher of mine named Gunnoe
Sometimes tippled and was often a no-show
A clever fellow he
Was laid back as could be
When they fired him he had nowhere else to go.

antelope feels her; pops out her eyes
the chase is on
one is a pawn
antelope’s heartbeat is on the rise.

Pursued by a pot belly hog

Limerick 1, The sausage seller

Limerick 1 – The sausage seller

I used to know a sausage seller called Franz 
Who could never resist a dance
But whenever he was waltzing
Mice were assaulting 
And stealing his wurstchen 
Whenever he gave them the chance.

As my pronouns are "he" and "him"
With 1 prick 4 play

Roaming around with nary a bond

from the blonde whom he’d been staring.

Prompt Troller

Through writing prompts I quietly scroll,
five with the same topic takes a toll;
How many ways can you say 
the same thought in a new way?
I suppose I will just sit and troll.

Dissidents claim they must reform
The life we accept as the "norm" 
As Mother Earth said,
"Until you are dead
Peace lies in the eye of the storm!"
