There was a poet named Milton
Who never slept in a Hilton
But Paris he knew
And Cambridgeshire, too,
Which is where he bought his Stilton*

* Stilton is an English cheese sans Marmite

Bit of Lunacy

Colorization is Angela’s thing
Her purple hair makes her blue eyes zing
there is a spike in her neck
with mini-me, what the heck?
Bit of lunacy makes this photo king!

We toss our names into a hat
Luck of the draw, that’s where it’s at
No rhyme or reason 
Must be the season
Just step on up and swing your bat

The Devil was searching for souls
Among politicians with goals
So many for sale
No way could he fail
Just look at the GOP polls!

Never Once Did He Stare

         ~ Revised Repost ~ 

  There once was a minister so meek
  His sole desire, the Lord for to seek
    Despite babes everywhere
    Never once did he stare
  He just smiled, then turned her other cheek

Bird Flew

When Eve was searching for a rib
The Devil led her to a crib
Where Cain and Able
Hatched a stork fable
Creating the very first fib

Johnny and Amber

To get my mind off war and inflation
I’ve watched the trial for defamation.
  Johnny is crazy as Heard
  but really Ms Amber Turd
should be on trial for defecation!

There once was a pretty young miss
Who discovered her clito-ris
To her delight
She found each knight
Could lead to a life of pure bliss

A Werecat Named Nat

Meeting women online, werecat Nat

with the lovers of felines would chat.

When a cat he became,

he required a sweet dame

who – on seeing him – would not yell SCAT.

Missing A Muse

A muse on the Isle of Man
Skipped to the loo aka "can"
But something went wrong
The queue was too long
How could she rush back to Jan?

Central Park's cool event in May
Brings the gigolos out to play

Its Banana Split & Run Day

Pachyderm on the Hot Sand

There once was a light-skinned pachyderm
Who had a thing for a lowly worm
   Sun-bathing on the hot sand
   Elephant got quite a tan
Poor worm earned him a wiggly sunburn

Tribute To A Tributer

I Am Anaya likes good food and fine rhyme
Dining with Poetry Soup all the time
She posts tributes so terse
but they could be verse
With a love of poetry so true and sublime

Contrarian Veterinarian

In Encino there's a veterinarian
who is the Valleys rudest contrarian
He'll insult a shy tabby
Greet a pug: Hey there, flabby!
But at home, he's a kind Presbyterian

USA Million Aire

The cooings of a snow-white dove
Beseech the wind to bring us love
But pandemics apart
Don't you dare touch my heart
Unless you wear a rubber glove!

Cheeky Whiskey

Whiskey’s my favorite drink.
It makes my cheeks turn pink.
Can’t have just one,
What’d be the fun.
So I drink til I get to the brink.

A cow was awaiting its doom
In a barn with so little room
Her very last fart
Was a pistol start
And the abattoir went ka-boom!

Our priest will preach until he's hoarse
About the sin of intercourse
From what we've heard tell
He knows it quite well
By habit, he re-checks each source

A Filly, Bovine

I knew a filly, thought she was bovine
Whenever she talked, out came this line
   ‘I am man’s best friend’
    This girl would deadpan
'He drinks my milk ~ He is udderly fine'

The Wailing Wall is standing tall
So men may bang their head and bawl
But burka girls
Must hide their curls
So no one can see their tears fall

Us Guys Have A Feminine Side

Contrary to popular belief guys have a feminine side Some wear gowns pretending they're a blushing bride I'm more reserved Lacking the nerve But at the sight of a wee mousie I'm mortified

Four young men and quite large
Are cruising the mall like a barge.
But I, diddle, diddle,
Fit as a fiddle, 
Aim my cane at the middle and charge!

The Last Dine

There once was a lady named Jill
Who went to eat without a fill

She was broken up
After her man's last cup

So she ran away from their bill!

Vegan Aire

When mum tells you to eat your beans
You know exactly what she means
That foul belly air
Needs to go somewhere
And better not be in your jeans!

Manchester Man

Seems a Manchester man dropped trow
to test out a sofa, and how!
The fabric is swell;
it resisted poo well.
Good news too, it’s half price right now!


Reported by employees at the Sofa Club in Manchester’s Arndale Centre. The disposition of the couch is poetic license…

digs Dizzy and Miles to the max
But it’s now hip-hop and punk
No more groovin’ to Monk

Good For Nothing

A bratty six-year-old down in Carlsbad
makes his poor, haggard mother so mad!
He'll be good for a buck
but his mom shouts: Good luck!
Just be good for nothing like your dad!

Watered Down World

I am so tired of things that are fake; 
How much more do I have to take? 
Filters and trends strike again 
reminding me to abstain, 
watered down world give me a break.

The Maypole fell out of fashion
Due to a lack of compassion
Invited to bed
"Get knotted!" girls said
"Weaving ribbons is our passion!"

Greater hate hath no man

At a bunker in coastal Ukraine
Filth and death; now sadly do reign
With wide open wounds
Many might well die soon
Yet They've never of covid complained
