Mischievous Minions--A Limerick Suite


			The series "Despicable Me," 
			we've flocked to theaters to see.
			Wee minions--cute creatures--
			and bad guys each features.
			To all we respond with great glee.

			I never dreamed five years ago
			that I would soon dash to and fro
			in search of these minions--
			in children's opinions,
			all treasuresHow well I now know!

			Some kids possess minions galore:
			the one-eyed, the two-eyed, and more.
			They giggle and jabber;
			"BANANA," some blabber.
			Their odd appeal, who could ignore?

			My grandson's like other young boys.
			For Christmas he craved minion toys.
			His loved ones went shopping
			for hours, not stopping
			till we found gifts he now enjoys.
			The minion-themed presents I gave
			were puzzles, a cool talking Dave,
			a pillow with three guys
			with one or two huge eyes.
			For these he did hug me and rave.

	`		I'm glad to say just one thing more:
			Fart Blaster, I left at the store!
			The child would have driven 
			me nuts if I'd given
			him that thing; but Dave, I adore.

Dear Santa

          Poor Santa Claus encountered a delay
          There was thick fog that made him lose his way
          He went on yellow pages
          Then spent some of his wages
          A gps he ordered for his sleigh

          Santa dotes on his true love – his missus
          Even though she can be so suspicious
          But he knows that with a kiss
          He can fill her heart with bliss
          In return she bakes him pies – delicious! 

          On Christmas night his tour was much in doubt
          Because he ached all over due to gout
          He thought of his appointments
          Would not have disappointments
          On Christmas night he dished his presents out.

[Let us spare a thought for Santa, come Christmas night;
in spite of all his problems and setbacks he still delivers!]

Christmas Limerick

Upon this very merry Christmas night,
MrsClaus has reason to be uptight, 
   Not Rudolph’s nose that’s red,
   But MrClaus’s instead,
He rides slopes in sleigh with Miss Fanny Bright!

MrsSanta on last Christmas Eve
Was so naughty , at trying to deceive.
Not the slightest bit coy
When she met her toy~boy....
Now , believe what YOU want to believe

Rudolf the randy raindeer
Took his lady friend out for a beer.
Then he took off his clothes.
Showed~off his red nose..
Saying.who the hell said, I was queer...

What's the worst place at Christmas to be ?
Perhaps a turkey~dish laced with gravy....
It's more painful and airy
To be some poor fairy
With your +++  on the top of the tree

O Worldly Concept god

“O commercialized corporate franchise” 
Thou that holds illusions in selling lies
    Max out your credit cards
    Lenders be holder’s lords
Forfeiting all bank notes as owner cries

“O commercialized corporate franchise” 
My babies wonder about Christmas guys
    My babies’ futures be scared
    Must obey corporate lords
“O thou commercialized corporate lies”

Just commercialized greedy Xmas rush
Souls like zombies of  the corporate thrust 
    The X  of  the Christ
    O Love’s sacrifice
“In commercialized corporate we trust”

Santa With Running Nose

Santa's red cap is turning blue
his nose running with Christmas flu
and the Doctor's advice
was "it will be nice,
wrap the gifts with natural glue."

The Snowman with a Political Agenda


		I love bright outside Christmas sights,
                especially colorful lights
		on evergreen trees
		that sway in the breeze
		and snowmen on clear, wintry nights.

		I just witnessed something quite strange,		
		a snowman so wrongly arranged.
		He stood on his head.
		I guffawed and said, 
		“Your butt’s in the airQuite a change!”

		Then to my surprise, Snowman spoke:
		"You think my existence a joke?
		I’m planning to run
		for office—such fun!”
		I thought I was having a stroke.

		He boasted, “I’ve got a good chance
		of doing that victory dance.
		My stance draws a crowd;
		I’m bold, loud, and proud.
		I’m getting much more than a glance!

		My butt you see up in the air,
		in plain view and totally bare,
		is where my thoughts form,
		though that’s not the norm.
		My head’s not why folks stop and stare!”
		This weird snowman should make the news,
		but I heard no journalists’ views
		on what I’d just seen,
		but what I did glean
		was proof that some folks have the blues.

		They’re saying some leaders don’t lead
		consistentlySo many plead
		for those who won’t show
		their butts, those who know
		each vow must be sealed with a deed.

For New Brother Saved A Gift

For New Brother Saved A Gift

White snow softly fell to the ground;
Wild animals would roam all around;
Saw a Christmas tree shining bright;
God had made us such a pretty sight.

Gifts under a tree were there all laid;
Near fire place we played and played;
Parents did have to make a decision;
Tell us Santa is real not just a vision.

That night we had started off to bed,
After all of our prayers had been said;
Make sure Santa comes to our house,
Brought a gift for our little pet mouse.

On top of roof sound had been heard;
A miracle on Christmas night occurred;
Our mother we love beyond all worth,
To another new son has given birth.

After Christmas was over and done,
Each of us a gift we had saved one,
So to our new brother we could give,
Who with us together here does live.

Dark Humour for Christmas

Father Christmas was flirting with fate
On accepting for once a blind date
In the park on a bench
He sat waiting to quench
His desires but she was very late.

Snow was falling and that made it worse
This encounter was surely a curse
She turned up past mid night
Found him rigid and white
In a panic she called for a hearse!

Santa's Little Helper

One Christmas Santa’s elf helped StNick a LOT
Cooing ‘Hey big boy, wanna see what I got?
She returned in a Nightie
Santa gasped, “Lord a’mighty!”
“Now StNick’s gonna show you what SANTA’S got”...

Pets on Parade

"Pets on Parade" on Christmas Eve two kitty cats were sleeping as Santa Claus climbed down the chimney creeping Excalibur started to purr Gabriel raised his black fur poor Santa was startled and began weeping. while Santa was chased by playful felines trotting toward them a band of hungry canines sweet Venus the white Wstie was growing quite testy for commotion interrupted her night sublime. Thor and Thunder twin midnight blue great danes frolicked in fun as Santa reached for red candy canes they took giant licks opened Santa's bag of tricks as Raider the Shepherd smeared frosty windowpanes. pretty pets on parade on Christmas Eve had a jolly good time you best believe sharing cookies and milk with the Moon smooth as silk and Santa was so happy to leave. *For SKAT'S Calling All Pet Poems.

Adam's Apple Of His Eye .

 Say Lady , it's hard to believe
 With this serpent tugging my sleeve
 Saying " head for the chapel
 Here's a nice juicy apple
 Ring her bell , it's now New Years Eve "

 So , Sweet Rib , what is your name ?
 " I'm your Eve , with no in-laws to blame
 So , well done my boy
 Lets go forth..multiply.
 But , that fig leaf's too small for your shame ".

 It's a biblical thing , not a fable
 As our sons sat around our new table
 Each others bad nemesis
 Listening to Genesis
 Discovering Cain wasn't " able "

 Our Garden Of Eden was class
 As it shimmered with silver and brass
 But the Lord said " lets go
 Here's a rake and a hoe
 Clear the weeds , and that snake from the grass ".

Dedicated to my 2 favorite Eves : Christmas & New Years.

Dear Mrs Clause

The reason for this post Christmas fax
Knowing Santa needs most to relax
After eating my fudge
He thought I had a grudge
To sneak him four ounces of ex lax

But was all a very sad mistake
Later to him regrets I will make
Rich food so delicious
Can be most pernicious
It was there for my relief to take.

Flying Reindeer

A flying reindeer drank much beer
Wanting to be full of Christmas cheer,
When the man in the red suit pulled his rein
He wobbled in the sky with such disdain
He filled poor Santa with fear.

A White Pumpkin Family Review

Cotton Candy is a pumpkin who
Is known as White Pepo too.
Her nice rounded shell
She keeps very well,
And one day she met Baby Boo.

Baby Boo is quite small, and at night
He might glow, an albino pure white.
He is both good looking
And good at cooking!
He and white Pepo make a rare sight.

Cotton Candy (White Pepo) and he
Got together, and baby made three.
With skin color cream,
The baby’s a dream
And he’s part of the Ghost family.

Like his Mom, maybe better, is he.
Ghost can keep for a long time and be
Just like his Dad too.
Like that small Baby Boo,
In the oven he can bake sweetly.

Another White pumpkin, meanwhile,
In Carol’s patch sat on a pile.
Smooth, round and pure white,
An adorable sight,
Is this pumpkin with decorative style.

Other pumpkins can read this and weep
For Halloween has a new peep!
For MINE, cute and small,
Has the name of Snowball
And clear up to Christmas can keep!

A Taxing Situation

The hoopla of Christmas has come and gone
   The checkbook for that spree is overdrawn

      Lord, please have mercy on me

         I can already foresee

            To pay Uncle Sam my dog I must pawn

Outsourcing IRS I can't condone

   They linked me up to Sierra Leone

      I just could not comprehend

         The guy on the other end

            It was a nasty discourse on the phone

This year the IRS has bled me dry

   May have to mortgage the house to comply

      I've searched for more deductions

         But find no more reductions

            It hurts to laugh and I'm too old to cry

Trembles and thrills- for contest

To ourselves alone both had the place
and we dropped to our knees face to face
so close our breath mingled
our nerves and skin tingled
no credit card would fit through the space

her eyes wide in anticipation
her chest heaved with such expectation
a look pleading, needy
my face just plain greedy
hand thrust down with no hesitation

layers torn off I fell back and stared
for this I had been quite unprepared
with reckless abandon
she just left my hand on
as the moment passed by that we shared

oh so gently her weight did she shift
leaning backwards to let my hand lift
as I fizzed from the thrill 
of the new hammer drill
she bought me Christmas day as a gift.

In younger days we would watch our figure
Now hear behind the back people snicker 
    Now through many years
    Christmas treats and cheers
Behinds not in line, those bellies bigger!

I’ll make Chocolate pie resolution
Along with Pecan pie restitution
    When our congress acquits
    Stupid party line splits
That’s when this old sort admits, protrusion! 

Once old fat cell was triggered  
Being in behinds he snickered 
    In belly overlap
    In lassie and old chap
Got them just the way he figured!

The Kid Who Knew Squat About Christmas

“So tell me,” I asked the young boy,
“to whom does one owe Christmas joy?”
But the lad looked at me
and just said, “Can’t you see?
It means when you get the best toy!”

“Do you know why the wise men rode far
on their camels to follow a star?”
With surprise in his eyes,
he said, “How were they wise?
They should have just driven a car!”

“Do you know why we have Christmas day?”
But here’s all the poor kid could say:
“You spoke of some dude
that those ‘wise guy’ pursued.
Just WHO was this ‘star’ anyway?”

"Limerick" Turkeys

For Donna Golden's competition  "Ode to the  Turkey"

Dear turkeys, keep feeding like kings
And flapping your high protein wings
For unknown to you - dears
You'll soon sit on your  - rears
And be roasted and stuffed - you poor things.

You'll be sliced up and spiced up so soon
So have fun for your last afternoon
You ones with big wings
Are such sexy things
Too bad you will soon meet your doom.

You bring Christmas to life for us all
Oh! pardon my pun! and my gall
My hubby's a veggie
So I feel a bit edgy
But stuff it, today it's my call.

Christmas, Eighty Two

It was Christmas way back in eighty two
Head in hands not knowing what to do
All I see is a door
Never been here before
Do I take the next step and walk through

As I sit here and trawl through my life
From five years old, full of strife
The light I see clear
Could my end be so near
Past images begin to run rife

Suddenly, a hand on my shoulder
Words of wisdom being told as we solder
Tell me James of your past
Sharing burdens, be them cast
You have many reasons to grow older

Just think of the birds in the trees
And the leaves that dance in the breeze
All the songs you enjoy
Now your a man from a boy
And grasp your tomorrows and seize

From that moment I have never looked back
I now absorb my past and it's flack
My thanks is to Frank
Whom that night stood by my flank
When he died, my thanks never lacked
