Where's The Music Coming From



Nine tabs open, where is the music coming from My mind's a steel trap, but it's a challenge by gum Maybe it's the site about Mars Or some other site quite bazaar Maybe it's the one that challenges my cerebellum

Drools On His New Sedan



Body parts on a woman can sure excite a man Simple things like slender legs can start his minivan Other things help him react Make him tremble in fact Becomes incoherent and drools on his sedan

Crow Thief

There once was an owl name of Lash.
He hid all his toys in the trash.
Along came a crow
He stopped and said “whoa!”
And stole every bit of the cache.

ALL THUMBS


 
There once was a sailor from Saskatoon
Who wrecklessly wielded his new harpoon
         He impaled himself
         Accusing an elf 
Crew replaced him by a smarter baboon

Head Head On After Starting To Skirmish

Head Head On After Starting To Skirmish

Had hit head on after starting to skirmish;
Destroyed objective when did extinguish;
Waited;
Dissipated;
Control not needed so it would relinquish.

Food To Feed Separate from Weed

Food To Feed Separate from Weed

Morning Has Broken and so has each seed; 
Become food to feed  separate from weed,
They found,
On ground,
Which was required that they surely need.

My main goal is to motivate others
to write poetry..

Irish Missed

Three Irish angels were sipping their tea
Discussing the sinners that they could see
"That one's a menace
That one drinks Guinness
And that colleen is heaven for three!"

Saw Such A Small Sparrow

Saw Such A Small Sparrow

We should have seen such a small sparrow, 
Whose eyes were always sharp and narrow; 
Heart of gold, 
Have been told, 
And view of things seen straight as an arrow.

I AM THE CARPENTER

I am Joseph the Carpenter, husband of Mary,
I am the Carpenter, we were the chosen of many,
Archangel Gabriel visited Mary the Mother
Of Jesus, proudly I became the legal Father,
Soon to become parents sadly, our Saviour to bury.

Slip and Fall in Maine

Through the long winters up in Maine
Her virtue she aims to maintain
Though she tries best to cope
On a slippery slope
She slips and falls now and again

Like To Liberate from Trump

When this was done we could celebrate;
Not be annoyed;
Peace enjoyed,
While we were happy from state to state.

Alien-Like Beings



Wonder if a future world will really survive Will we see a time less human, will we still be alive Really too old to see it To experience a down shift Alien-like inhabitants invading from the skies

An Old Haunt in Vermont

Great artist who is my favorite aunt;

Beautiful view;
While having fun skiing in Vermont.

WALKING ON THE MOON








Fifty years ago on the moon went Man

T'was a trip that had long before begun

When he dreamed flying up high

To soar wished and reach the sky

Now planets wants to conquer if he can!

Louisiana I Have Sinned

Louisiana Rev had a session,
with a girl in the oldest profession.
Was found with his pants down,
on the wrong side of town.
His next sermon became his confession.

A Long Came Jones

A Game of Thrones can break some bones
With shrieks and groans and sexy moans
But none can compare
With My Lady Fair
D. Lilah Jones' erotic zones!

Thought That I Had About Travel

Thought That I Had About Travel

There is this thought I had about travel;
Could be on mountainside or on gravel;
Sights seen;
Some serene,
While mind with thoughts would unravel.

Such A Sad State of Affairs

Such A Sad State of Affairs

Have been in such a sad state of affairs;
Know that Trump for us less ever cares;
Selfish for sure;
We must endure;
He is highly egotistical and never shares.

What I Thank About God

What I want to thank about God,
Is all my many sins He has shod;
And Son gave,
Who was brave;
Grass grows so greatly in His sod.

Hawaii

There is an aging surfer from Hawaii
Who can’t stay afloat however he try’
	The girls giggle and sneer
	While he sips his warm beer,
But he thinks he still looks rather fly.

There was an old man from County Cork 
Who proudly wore the family torque.

     couldn’t foretell the day: 
It would decapitate this dork.

Rights That Are Declarant

What we would found out was apparent,
Did determine rights that are declarant;
Then ensued,
And viewed;
We had also found them to be inherent.

A little girl from Minnesota.
Got filled up on chocolate soda.
She cried to her mummy.

For your birthday

For your birthday I made you a cake,
which took quite a long time to bake,
but to send it your way,
I used a trebuchet,
and now it's all over the lake.

People Should Propose

There are these things we should propose;
When we have lied may chop off long nose;
After increases,
Into pieces,
And longer and longer it grows and grows.

Life Is A Roll Of The Dice



To all the people that we've known in our life Here's some words of wisdom, it's all about the roll of the dice Depends on which the slot we land Or if we're dealt a winning hand It's all about circumstance, we don't get to go around twice

Control over Realm

Realm is a royal domain and kingdom.

Trump has been in charge and at helm;
In complete control over all the realm;
Sun or rain,
A total pain;
While President everyone will overwhelm.
