A Horse To Hate

There’s a horse that I so hate to see,
and at night sometimes he visits me.
His attacks to my thigh
make me think I might die.
Wild "Charley Horse" acts horribly.

For he comes out of nowhere, so fast!
And he brings a sharp pain like a blast.
I scream like a loon
hit by a harpoon.
Then my husband awakens aghast!

But my hubbie can’t help meThat horse,
though invisible, has such great force!
How I love my reprieves
when the little beast leaves.
But his kind never stays gone, of course!

My poor calf he attacked in a pool
while I swam, and I felt like a fool
as I floundered around.
Well, I could have drowned!
He’s a mean little horse and a ghoul.

He’s got kin, and they all like the game
of bringing folks painOne has fame
of attacking your womb
in a hospital room.
Now THAT one puts Charley to shame!!

By Andrea Dietrich

(note to those who do not know this common
 American expression: Charley Horse is a leg cramp
and all the his kin are assorted types of cramps!)

Borderline Poster Child

Who am I, oh, who am I? Just a poser child Borderline? A series of bold contradictions Led on by doctors false predictions Diagnosing all the time... Angry outbursts fill the air, Throwing objects everywhere, They drug me up, because they're lazy It's too much work to help the crazy I hate the pills, but they don't care Take the drugs, and you'll feel better, We'll smoke some bud, and chill together But even if I smoked the weed Surely that's not all I need The lovely high won't last forever I get attatached to everyone, But when they get too close, I run So many arrows in my heart Cupid shoots, but then I part Not phased by all the wrong I've done So put me on more medication, I'll throw in some dedication, But even then it's not enough This emptiness is still too tough All that's left is contemplation

Limerick 6 - Song Bird

I write of sad things in my life for you, And win sometimes first place and this is true; Some hate my weeping words, That I write like a song bird; So I give me, a compliment or two. _________________________ June 20, 2015 Limerick Inspiration Quote: "When you cannot get a compliment in any other way, pay yourself one."

The Vet

Heard them say that I’m off to the vet
It’s for my annual booster you bet
He is fetching the lead
Here he comes yes indeed
And into the car I do get

I do not like the car very much
Travel sickness I get just a touch
If they take me to far
I’ll be sick in this car
But I just can’t help it as such

We arrive at the vets safe and sound
I drag slowly for this I have found
It’s a waste of time 
Going to the vets is a crime
I’d rather be back in the pound

Now there putting me on the scale
The nurse says I’m as fat as a whale
This is no fun
I just want to run
But alas I must sit on my tail

At last I’m led into that room
I know that it not for a groom
They lift me on the table
For to climb I’m not able
At last I fear it is doom

The vet has moved round behind
That thermometer looks none to kind
He says it won’t hurt
In a manner that’s curt
Now the thermometer they cannot find

Next it’s the jab in the neck
I could bite him but what the heck
It’s all over now
It’s much worse for a cow
As I leave the surgery I wreck

Then just as I’m off to the door
I hear the vet say one thing more
He needs more exercise
To decrease his size
To hell with that that’s for sure

So back in the car to go home
I feel my mouth starting to foam
Then I’m sick on the floor
Someone open the door
In this car I just hate to roam

Now free of the car I need the loo
The fresh green grass will do
As I open my bowel 
The smell is quite fowl
The thermometers there in my pooh

So home again I will take to my chair
Relax and unwind as is fair
Too much stress for today
Just want to sleep and lay
For the exercise I just do not care

So my trip to the vet I’ve relayed
My owner took me and has paid
So leave me in peace
All wrapped up in my fleece
For my sleep has to long been delayed

During my time at high school I never once broke any rule I was quiet and shy Didn’t flirt with a guy Even if I thought he was cool     I was never ever great at sport Even though it was subject taught I was so very short That on the netball court I couldn’t reach the hoop and scored naught! At college I met a cute guy Both of us were terribly shy We went out to a gig But he lit up a cig I hate smoking - I wanted to cry! Contest:- Let’s Hear it Sponsor:- Judy Konos 02~08~16

Love and Hate

LOVE and HATE it can often be said
in relationships, share the same bed
if you're really quite shrewd
you can work out her mood-
either lipstick or bruise on my head!

Categories: introspection

a divorce was the best thing for me then

kitten left for cat
i got the knife in my back
no she can't come back

when we were married she did'nt cook or clean
fact is: she was only good for one thing
when she left i cried and cried
maybe once or twice thought of suicide
many years latter it was realized
my divorce was really a reward in disguise

i cannot say i hate you, but i will not be your friend
it was very distasteful, the way you treated me in the end

Lemmings never pay the phone company

"Tree huggers” use AT&T
The human cost catastrophe
On the horizon
Like text from Verizon
Is sent with the speed of 4G
Pollution's still booked at no 
And Earth’s expenses neatly tossed
Off the balance sheet
With a "Sprint" so complete
The effects on nature seem lost 

Yes EPA rules do offend
Those who crave Earth’s wealth without end
They claim to hate debt
But have seen nothing yet
Like phone bills "T-Mobile" might send! 

Author's note:  It seems ironic and strange that debt haters (like tea party supporters, for 
example) and those who are pushing more reliance on fossil fuel and less "subsidy" for 
renewables (Romney/Ryan for example) support the continuation of policies and 
practices that will damage the environment and that will hurt future generations They are 
pushing growth and not pushing conservation I would have more respect for them if 
they talked about the costs as well as the benefits of their plans I wonder if it might just 
be a scam to reward large corporations for the short term and stick it to the rest of us for 
generations That would be nothing new.

Prejudices Will Not Be Tolerated

Of being prejudiced Clyde was accused,

   Leaving his reputation a tad bruised.

      "If I'm hateful, so be it,

         But I hasten to admit,

            I hate pizza with anchovies", he mused!

THE CLOWNS for contest

Once there were clowns in a circus, 
Whose clown's knew not of their purpose.
None, laughed at their tricks.

Because Nuns hate fracas, ruckus

Dawn the Stalker, part 3

She devoted her time to poetry and blogs
Addressing his many nonexistent flaws
As if his was the family, being neglected
While she refused to address his rejection
And became something too sad to even mock

You see, Dawn had succumbed to her invective
Unmedicated and overprotective
But of all the wrong things -
The lies about herself she struggled to maintain
And an impossible dream objective

And so, Dawn rots away
Her own twisted mind's slave
Spending time on a man who will never love her
Of whose affections, she is quite sure
While the ones who do care about her are estranged

She thinks only of herself
And ignores her child's wails
Mocks her husband's needs
She is the epitome of greed
And of failing mental health

Her words against him are an inner reflection
Of the emptiness that has become her own life's direction
She gets more repulsive as she pines away
And her husband is tempted to stray
But she thinks he is a fool to her deception

And most of us caught in her narrative live on
While she babbles like a moron
Taking her hate and lies wherever she can
To try and further convict an innocent man
Oh, what a sad old witch, that Dawn!

What the Radical Religious Rabble Rousers Are Thinking

All of Islam deserves our hate
Unlike ours—this faith can’t be great
The ground zero mosque
Is an evil kiosk
Our lord says to obliterate

What’s better than the Ku Klux Klan
And frightens the bad Taliban?
Yes—with a book roast
America will toast
Those evil who read their Koran

Burning books ain’t nothing to fear
Infernos are fun with a beer
So with drink all cheer—(hip hip hooray!)
To hate is nothing queer
Hitler did it—and he we revere

The Grass is Greener

We’re not called upon to choose anything we live through;
Neither parent nor sibling nor school nor form of sinew;
Neither colour of hair or eye or skin,
Nor love or hate, nor loss or gain
Nor opportunities nor whence we comeSo much is true.

But as much as this truth I hold as true as sunlight,
I know that painful times will time to time alight
When with bitter phlegm you curse
The earth where you breathed first
And wish your day of birth were scratched by He with might.

I knowSame feelings have plagued my adult soul
And the wish for better home to make each day whole
Has been dashed by shameful news,
Where Hope, seeing Hitler, and 94’s Hutus,
Needs to hide its youth to stall the death toll.

But amidst pain, hate and bottled despair rife
There’s the rare love, innocent and hardly grasping to life.
For here, we can give our all
When we choose to keep you from a fall.
We really do it: humble, loving…just like the Lord’s life.

Yes, it’s easier to perceive the weeds in one’s garden
For the pastures beyond gleam in our myopia, hiding their burden.
And seeing that weed can cast a shadow
On all that’s sweet, but cause much ado
About the bitter parts, and it day by day your heart will harden.

Think of the evening breeze on the night grill,
Feeding the flames of a delicious family fish meal.
Think of hitting the unadulterated
Lands of hills where ancient rivers percolated
And happy goats skip, and cattle graze and one can feel

Life whizzing through rustling leaves of dancing old tree or reed,
Playing the music our ancestors learned to read,
Making your lungs touch their purpose,
Dazzling your eyes like a Jabbawockeez pose,
The music we’ve forgotten as we focus on some RSS feed.

Think of the youths wise with tradition re-enacting solemnly
The dances and music handed down from before when Ptolemy
Phrased ancient philosophical data,
To the time of the expansive empire of Sundiatta
Beads stomping the dust frantically in musical poetry.

Picture the pure darkness which crowds the silent night air,
Unveiling the marvellous dotted and scattered there
In the moonlit heavenly canvas,
Watching us from light years past,
And we fascinated by the sparkling magic they share.

So to sum it all up, I know it cannot be perfect,
And sometimes I rant and make massive graffiti of its defects,
But this home my parents chose
Still draws my spirit close,
For the bond is deeper, far deeper than human senses can detect.

Coffee Master

I am the greatest coffee drinker.

The best wide awake thinker.

I drink my java,

hotter than lava,

always black I never tinker.

My Joe does not flow from a mug,

cause I down it from a gallon jug.

My coffee is the strongest,

and my buzz lasts the longest.

I hate to move slow, like a slug.

Big Fat Looser

I Am a Big Fat Looser

Oh I am a big fat looser
I don’t deserve to live
I need someone to take a Gun
And shoot me till I’m dead

Yes I am a big fat looser
I really want to die
I’m looking for a violent guy
To shoot me in the eye

Oh I am a big fan looser
I really have to say
If this is life I realize
I hate it every day

Yes I am a big fat looser
And life is just the pits
I am a guy that wants to die
Not live another day

Oh I am a big fat looser
I really hate this life
If you the one don't have a gun
Then maybe use a knife

Yes I am a big fat doofus
I really have to say
If suicide is painless
Well then maybe that’s the way

Oh I am a big fat doofus
I live in misery
But I don’t have the courage
Or I’d blow myself away

I really am a doofus
I’ve one more thing to say
If anyone is listening
Then shoot me right away
So I can die today

Just Horsing Around with Limericks

(sorry, Tirzah, I could not do a nice long poem on horses.
I just felt like doing some silly limericks playing off expressions
for horsesThanks for the inspiration!)

I Hate that Horse

There’s a horse that I so hate to see,
And at night sometimes he visits me.
His attack to my thigh
Makes me think I might die.
That Charly Horse acts horribly!

Horses Have Ears, Ya Know

“I could eat a horse!” hungry bob said
To his friends as he rode his horse, Ned.
Taking it the wrong way,
Ned reared up with a “neigh!”
Bob fell off and got kicked in the head.

Pony Up

“Pony up,” said the seamstress in town
With the new bride’s hand-sewn beaded gown.
But having no dough,
The bride cast her eyes low,
Saying, “Sorry, but my pony is down.”

In Our One Horse Town

We love ostrichesHaven’t you heard?
Yes, it’s true, and I give you my word
Just one old mare lives here.
Had no foals; she is queer.
So each cowboy just rides a bird!

A Techno-Nightmare

Grandma sneered at my computer in awe;
Contempt did build and it stuck in her craw.
     Said it was the devil’s work,
     The new keys drove her berserk.
She claimed they had to be against God’s law.

“What do these things mean, page up and page down?”
So she pressed “escape,” continued to frown
     All of my work had been lost
     And I was growing quite cross
In my cussing, grandma started to drown

“Why did you hit escape?” I had to ask.
“Now I must begin anew this tough task.”
     She responded politely,
     “I hate this technology
And wanted you to "escape" Satan’s grasp!”

Paper or Plastic

And It's Better for the Environment Too!(that's my real title!!)

If somebody asks you to place
a bag on your headWhat disgrace!
You’re too chatty, I bet,
or maybe worse yet.
they might just hate seeing your face!

Choosing plastic I think you will hate
(though for stopping one’s talking it’s great).
Plastic over your head,
and you’re going to be dead.
Using plastic makes folks suffocate!

Here’s advice I'd give to you guys:
In a paper bag poke little eyes.
You’ll be able to view
things, but we won’t see YOU,
And above all, nobody dies!!

A ''small'' improvement

Equal pay for all they’ll abort 
It’s the mantra of our Supreme Court
Now some have health care
Marry off any pair 
But keeping us poor is their sport

Author's note: To be fair, the "Affordable Care Act" does (through subsidy) re-distribute some wealth That is why certain politicians hate it!  BTW, it's great for the insurance companies and is not the way real health care should be set up It is, however, an improvement over what we had before In a similar vein, extending rights to gay people (which is a good thing) also may help them economically So, a small but important victory has occurred.

n the grand scheme of things, the inequality that pervades our society is getting worse The politicians say that we have to allow everyone to have expectations and opportunity for improvement When I hear that statement, I think of trickle down economics How can it be anything else when big money owns politics?

Veggie Tray

My veggie tray's selection was unique.
'Twas still offered to a jittery sheikh
Who hopped from foot to foot,
Ignoring the ginger root,
Took an onion, saying, "Gotta take a leek!"

He ran off to the loo speedily.
Later on, he returned back to me.
Assessed my tray and proceeded
To eat a pod that was seeded.
I asked him, "Tell me sir, how was your pea?"

We laughed, and guffawed, and made a fuss
At the playful double entendre between us.
He said with a wink,
"I'd hate to think
What you'd say if I had the asparagus!"

Holiday Shopping Course; Don't Forget the Pad!

Grab your bag, your husband and your dad,
Get ready to shop for this year’s fad,
Set your clocks; Black Friday is near,
Squint up a face that shows no fear,
Dawn brass knuckles, long nails and note pad.

Be the first at the Mall store, mate,
Pack a snack, stay all night and wait,
When the door unlocks run in, shove and scream,
A scare tactic that’s worked on me it seems.

Finger nail scratches are what I hate from those dames,
While you’re running in seeming slow mo for the newest games,
Stay on your feet men, survive and keep up the pace!
Or drop in the stampede and they’ll stomp your face!
The note pad? They need it for kicking butt and taking names!

Astrologists were wrong when they said I never show my emotions.
I've always been the outcast and the crybaby of the family but poetry is my devotion.
I don't care who knows or finds out about my secret love.
My emotions can't set me free from this cage like the whitest dove.
Should I keep going or stop my writing motion?

God was wrong when he sent me to be born on September Eleventh.
I'm nothing like a Virgo, please just call me an Amaranth.
War, love, and hate describe me on any given day.
When I look at her, the war ends and I'm tempted to stay.
In my mind I'm another ordinary kid that arrived the umpteenth.

What Do Computers Daydream About

What do computers daydream about?
   Do they wish they talk back or shout?
Without a disc drive,
It would not survive,
   I’m sure it does hate to be cleaned out!

Wonder what floats above in the cloud,
   a long nap, is it even allowed?
“shut off my darn screen!
You’re only thirteen!
   Stupid YouTube is up way too loud!!!”

I’m sure it gets sick of that Minecraft,
   it would much rather float on a raft,
videos and games,
life’s just not the same,
   “now kids pick me over doing crafts!”

Sincere photos and cards are printed,
   a cute little game played by a kid,
“sometimes it’s worth it,
they quietly sit…
   but I wanna close just one eyelid!”

Remember Commodore Sixty-Four?
  “The good old days! I wish I had more!
Way before email,
was slow as a snail,
   what’s all this technology good for???”

“Please press the button for pause or mute,
   even though you think my mouse is cute,
I’m so tired tonight,
Laura, p l e a s e  don't write...
   too exhausted to even compute!”

Wanting of a soul

Closer we came in love, for want of souls,
No trials, was sentenced a desired gaol,
Each breath in his detention renewed my life,
Vetoed cynicism, that put an end to all strife,
No wonder I didn't plead for a parole !

The MARKed Truth

The whole Truth and nothing but the Truth

The jokes on you, I was fine 
Just keep it real, that's my line
Little did u know
It's part of my flow
From this game I do resign.

Every word from my pink lips 
There Were no mistaken slips
I never once felt love
No wish from God above
I played you with all my tips

hate the player hate the game
No matter it's all the same
The one biggest lie 
I'm sure u will cry
You've only yourself to blame

Know the Difference

There’s a fine line between hate and love,
Defined by the Heavens above.
Or that man that you hate
May someday be your mate
And fit like your hand to your glove.

A fine line that cannot be seen
When nice has been turned into mean.
What was ugly is pretty
And the dumb are now witty.
A blessing where once grew obscene.

Intentions are not always pure
And the badness good manners obscure.
So before you decide
You will stay for the ride
Know opposites still have allure.

When you open the shell for the meat
You may find it is not fit to eat.
Before paying money
For hive full of honey,
Be sure the bee’s larder’s replete.

Let head rule your heart on first date.
Or villain you may over-rate.
For I am telling you
And I know it is true
There’s a fine line between love and hate.

Even though he acts like a -ICK
His Abs are lean and MEAN
A Tom Selleck lookalike MACHINE

They like to blow FACE

This four-eyed man with his pocket protector
Just got burnt by Society's perfect RACE

Lovers live to hate

A hot steamy, winter day.
Made two hateful lovers stray.
For together they were apart.
But, apart they lived with dead hearts.
They were visible by the fade

With a final blow, they forever killed.
The contained blood, spilled.
They hated to love.
They admitted this was undreamed of.
Together they emptied a cup by getting it filled.

Because they were only attracted by pushing away
Those two hateful lovers did stray.
By looking the other away they faced each other
They choose to love than hate the rather
So they both lived to kill today.

broken thighs

                                                        In a misty morn
                                                       as I trottle to work
                                                      Some mean teens
                                                     have nicknamed me:
                                                       YOU STUPID JERK
                                                      They hate four-eyed people
                                                      Respecting Mother Nature
                                                      communing with God
                                                      In the sacristy of his steeple
                                                      Throwing eggs on his face
                                                      to pinch a hidden nerve
                                                     Myron,the 6 footer
                                                    threw me upon the curve
                                                    Above me,this country's flag
                                                    yet they call me a FAG
                                                   YOU'RE TOO WIMPY FOR THE CALL
                                                   as they placed me against the wall
                                                   Numbers outweigh the mild and the meek
                                                  Reasoning can't help as I continue to speak
                                                 All the world belongs to macho guys
                                                 give him a wack and a couple of broken thighs

Babe I Hate To Go

John Denver's “Leaving On A Jet Plane” “Babe I hate to go” was the sad refrain Have second thoughts Too hasty I talked Slowing down a bit but methinks I'll remain

What was I thinking...

Down into the water I go,

    Floating to the croc pit, below…

        What was I thinking,

          I must have been drinking,

             This is why I hate playing GIJoe...

I hate house work with a passion.
I wish it would go out of fashion.
Vacuum cleaner lies beside me inert.
I guess I should make a start.
Then it's wine time...hassion!!

"hassion" means yabbadabbadoo in Gaelig.

Being gay in The States is not fun, Nor is trans, we're all on the run. No wedding, no loo. We're back in the zoo. All THEY want is their effing gun!!! My gay friends and I are in pain. Years of fight now all seem in vain. Gay weddings turned void, We're all so annoyed, It's all loss, where it should have been gain. Let's join hands with great force, move away From the bigotry, hate and dismay. Let children be free To choose who to be. Let peace and acceptance please stay. *** Written for my friends in the US, who fear the fanatics and bigots after this election outcome.

life with Trump XIV

Tarzan could yodel with a beat
A whale can sing melodies sweet
But Donald is mean
His mouthpiece the machine 
That disseminates hate with a tweet

The Adventures of Enea, Part 6 of 13

Enea is Pope! (1)
It doesn’t look good.
There is restiveness around the ‘hood.
Naples is in turmoil, a bastard claiming the throne –
but is he even a bastard?  And isn’t he owned
by the French?  Cardinal d’Estouteville
is treating the Tiara as a done deal.
Has he really as good as won?
Then the Papacy’s off (again) to Avignon.

At the gates
of the Papal States
is a general with an army.
He’s irrupting through,
and proceeding to
slice the land up, like salami.

Piccinino knows
this is how it goes:
there’s no spine to the Holy See, see?
Let him take terrain
on the Umbrian plain –
but must we lose Assisi?

Worse incursions are happening than these.
Hordes of Persians and Medes and Pharsees
(the irrepressible Turk)
are making short work
of humanity’s treasury – Europe.

They’re going to sack Italy soon.
The Muslims took Athens in June.
(When you need it, where’s NATO?)
For the city of Plato,
the game is decidedly up.

When some prince claims a “national church”,
for his motive it’s not hard to search:
they’re stashing the cash for themselves
that once weighed-down the Vatican shelves,
thereby leaving the pope in the lurch.

North Europe views Rome with disdain,
and for reasons not pure, but profane.
Their domestic corruption
brooks no interruption –
they just hate being Ultramontane.
