The Dandee Donuts Guy

A tall and short-tempered fat man was a boss I once had named Dan. Both his kids and his wife worked there tooOh, what strife! They fought like a hillbilly clan. Dandee Donuts was Dan's small café. I served donuts and meals for small pay, wore a stupid hair net and what small tips I'd get growing fat on free donuts each day! A “yeller” was Dan; a disgrace! He’d scream and get red in the face. If his business slowed down, he’d say, “Don’t stand around. Take a rag and wipe down the whole place!” In spite of Dan’s awful ways, he said he’d sure like to sponsor me as Miss Muscatine. I said, “What do you mean? Your food’s made me fatCan’t you see?”
(I chose the second one here for the contest. Did I make the right choice?)

Ode to occupy wall street

The middle class here can't be saved
When 0.001% act so depraved
Their wealth without end
These royals* still pretend
Did not come from us—their

Author' s Note:  Have been at Occupy Wall Street 8 days in the past two months--which is why I haven't been here--plus I have to work Miss you all, but it's for a good cause I am very briefly seen on Conan's feature: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at Occupy Wall Street if you are looking for some humor with a little umph.

IRS Business Audit

There was a madam who had a business in Shire,
In the oldest profession, she was for hire,
Alas, the tax people came,
But she didn’t think the same,
Because soon she wanted to retire.

She cried, “I have no savings; surely you jest,
Even the IRS can’t tax my breasts!
I just had them installed!
Aren’t you enthralled?
I bet you would never even guess!”

"Madam, even though your 401k,
Is in your ample breasts to stay,
I can see by your guests,
It still generates interest,
And for that you’ll have to pay!"

Alice Mulligan

Alice Mulligan hailed from Killsoul
A red head who had a strange role
A brothel, she ran
Till one day a strange man
Sent Miss Mulligan right up the pole.

She couldn't believe her bad luck
She thought she'd managed to duck
An enormous erection
Escaped her protection
Poor Alice, she just ran amuck.

Day by day our Alice grew bigger
T'was a mystery who was the trigger
Now her business was finished
And Alice diminished
Thus ending her vim and her vigour.

Self-employed and partner in life
He "hired" some other guy's wife
Making golfing balls
Now he has two holes

Tone it down to ''at least for the duration''

Time does our earth presence sever
But the post office is clever  
And offers for sale
For its eternal mail  
A stamp that is good forever

Author's note: The idea that anything associated with this planet will be consumed "forever" is peculiar and laughable It is also destructive in that business holds the truth in shadows.

Avoiding the IRS

There once was a woman  named Roxanne
Who had sex with many a fine man
She charged a big fee
And made them agree
To never disclose the business she ran

For Deb's contest...

Leaf Briefs

Underwear used to be a fig leaf
Then somebody invented the brief
I think it’s absurd
To name it that word
I mean, what’s briefer than a leaf?

Was it named by a white collar thief?
Like a lawyer who longed to be chief?
I could see his purport
When he said in court
“Your Honor, I’ll make this brief, brief, brief.”

“First of all, I would not use a leaf
As our skivvies’ business motif.”
He then rests his brief case
And picks up his briefcase
That held leafs of briefs, and the chief’s briefs.

Diamond,the sardar

Once there was man called Diamond, the sardar
a CEO,who takes business well above break-even at deep crisis
Not by selling immovable assets
Nor by selling intellectual property assets
Bloody a talent worth appreciation!

Limerick: Once a Meat-Vendor in Mylapur

Once a Meat-Vendor in Mylapur*
Set up shop (O!) Brahmin virtue pure
No hungry customers
Knocked past the front shutters
Though brisk business raged at rear door.

Brahmins were not vegetarians from antiquity.

The View in France

On his business trip, Pete saw burlesque
and daily phoned home from his work desk.
When asked once or twice
if the view there was nice,
he said, “Dear, France is most picturesque!”

Person from Porlock

A person on business from Porlock 
stopped by Nether Stowey for to talk 
He there spoke with a man 
who told him, "Kubla Khan, 
but right now he is out on his walk."

A Pricey Valentine

My valentine ever to be.
The girl of my dreams came to me.
   She wanted to play
   so I had to pay.
Satisfaction is guaranteed
My valentine's price was too much.
Her business kept all men in touch.
   Appointments were made
   Men met in the shade.
A call girl I found out as such!  

My valentine's not what she said.
I found out her heart was not red.
   She took all I had.
   But man she was bad.
Was worth it I took her to bed!!

Name Fame

Two brothers of stature and wit
A business to start, they'd commit.
The desire for fame
Was in their last name
Now Two-Morrows a work in profit!

Super Dooper Computers

Computers are around us everyday 
Some help us, whilst others let us play
No matter our ages
They can put us in rages
As they carry on with their display

They have been here for many a year
Sumerian abacus, engineered
Even a textile loom
Made this business boom
Which brought us to the modern ones near

They come in all shapes and forms
In our lives, on our wrists their adorned
Even the time they can tell
From their chip like cell
When they work, it's great, they perform

So without them we'd be awfully lost
Although our tempers can become crossed
To them I'll never condemn
Terrific silicon gems
One day us humans will be bossed

That Santa Clause with his Big Belly
He only laughing at all ah we,
With all his HO HO HO
As if I don't know,
That all the stores want is we money.

He thinks it's a joke, I tell you so
Him and his Wife and Elves do know,
And the more He deceive
Is the more we believe,
And Business men raking in the dough.

So Santa you better take a break
I don't have a job, for goodness sake,
So no milk and cookies
They will give cavities,
This Christmas Eve we're staying awake.

The Great Decision

Five vow to be corporate wench
To twist votes with their monkey wrench
The freed business fist
Full of money--they've kissed!
Gives Robert's court bench quite a stench

Moneyed pigs love this press release
Their chunks of great wealth must increase!
These skunks gorge and snort
Their ads—thanks Supreme Court— 
Are greed that’s been freed and won’t cease

2 Presidential - Limericks

             Presidential - Limericks

A builder once changed from his station
Became leader of the free nation  
The news media labeled him fake                                        
President Trump stayed up very late
Tweeting “You're fired” with no explanation

The Press followed Trump by the dozens
Holding his feet to the fire, were gluttons
Searching for scandals and sin 
Is the business they're in
We pray they don't push the wrong buttons

Big Bertha

Big busty Bertha was at the business luncheon,
with everyone talking business and munching,
suddenly she let out a big sneeze,
everyone thought it was a striptease,
when in fact it was just a wardrobe malfunction.

A Mundane Pain

Much Trump business is both mundane and plain;
Has hair that becomes a big mess while in rain;
Up people he riles;
T for Trouble dials;
Common sense lacks any not having a grain.

Response To Question About Trump

Response To Question About Trump

Whole place up I sure hate to stink,
But about Trump what do you think?
Approach holistic;
We went ballistic;
So flush him down hole in kitchen sink.

Trump Said Great

Trump did try to make  America great,
And he has come back again oh great;
When he did drop by,
We never  knew why,
Remove from office would be so great.

Jim Horn

Explored and  found Trump excoriable;
Supporters  were distinctly deplorable;
After drawing cards,
We had low regards;
Always did end up  being incorrigable.

Jim Horn

A Big Barrage

What they saw was  a beligerent barrage,
Of pictures contained in a cruddy collage;
Some good or bad;
Others glad or sad,
And all the  ugly ones did want to dodge.

Jim Horn

Annihiliated and Devistated

Not only had we been already  annihiliated,
And by belligerence did become devistated;
Alternate fact,
Was a wise crack;
Men saying they have periods is prevaricated.

Jim Horn

Trump Again Wants To

Trump has wanted to make  America great;
He returned and came back again oh great;
He started spewing;
Something brewing;
He burned his butt while  sitting on a grate.

Jim Horn

Comparing Checking Account

Comparing  checking  account with the last,
All of the  accumulated  bills had surpassed;
Picked up my pin,
And broke  again;
Huge debts deliberately ended up very vast.

Wife Business At Christmas

Again has  become another costly  Christmas;
Will take care of some more woman business;
And me amazes,
So many places;
We went on cruise to Panama including Ismus.

Cannot Pry or Try

Cannot Pry or Try

Flag had reached right into the sky,
While we were all here high and dry;
With bone spurs Trump's chances went by,
And others took his turn so he won't die.

On Trump really had been hard to rely;
He constantly does looking for an alibi;
Does seem no matter how hard we try,
Into Trump's business we cannot pry.

Jim Horn

Someone Else Instead

Shady deals and things Trump has spread,
And down a dead end road we were lead;
What a weird being;
Is not worth seeing;
Sure wish we had someone else instead.

Trump When He Does Dance

Trump When He Does Dance

You should see Trump when he does dance;
Steeped on her toes and peed in his pants;
Liked to gallop,
With a trollop;
Then he had a golden shower in a trance.

Jim Horn

A Relevant Elephant

Many things I remember are often relevant;
God said that man evolved from an elephant;
Preferred to hear,
Without any fear;
Man had wanted big ears wherever he went.

Jim Horn

Away Attention Steel

What we should do is reveal the way we feel,
And not always all of the attention try to steel;
Is better to be kind;
Own business mind;
Also, all of our sins from God no longer conceal.

Jim Horn

Sometimes there could be naughty neighbors;
Are always on warpath while they draw sabers;
Went over deep edge,
Then hit with sledge;
They never decided on favorite ice cream flavors.

No Feeling and Not Appealing

No Feeling and Not Appealing

I had to hurry up and write
this down before I forgot this.

When I never show any of my feeling;
What I write and say is not appealing;
While rambling,
Was gambling,
On you disturbed hitting head on ceiling.

Jim Horn

What happens if I check off 1st grade in Categories.
Does this mean that I am writing at a first grade level
of inteligence (LOI) and am on the level?

Also Wharton School of Business is not taught at night school.

Trump A Complete Wreck

Trump surely was A Complete Wreck;

Trump and Golden Shower Puddle

Trump and Golden Shower Puddle

Trump stepped into a golden shower puddle,
And as usual again  up business did muddle;
What we did find,
Sex on his mind;
With many naked women he liked to huddle.

Us and versus

Year sixteen dawned with a lot of fuss—
Of ‘us’ and the rest all called ‘versus’,
Like North versus South Pole,
Diamond demeaning coal,
Yet, on Earth are we not in same bus?
Whilst USA entered a post-truth era, the world found its ‘word of the year’, and India, an expert in politics of populism, perhaps gave a new meaning to politics of polarisation: nationalists Vs anti-nationals, patriots and not, making up a year of extremes that achieved littleBoth the Houses lost over 80% of business timeIt seems people on Earth no more feels they are in the same bus, Earth being a hurtling down brake-less bus
