Phony Facade

They protest to not be a drama queen
but just can't wait to jump into the scene
Pretending to be a friend
Verbal daggers they extend
Their true colors are now vibrantly seen

A Letter From the Irs

You have disregarded instructions
Thus claiming improper deductions
Send money by mail
And IF you should fail
Your paycheck will suffer reductions...

“The hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax” - Albert Einstein
Submitted for: John Freeman’s contest

Poetrysoup's Fright

There was once a very popular site
that for years was doing everything right 

but one day fell very sick 

its heart almost stopped to tick

fact, that gave PoetrySoup, such a fright!

Oh Well

Bill stared at a cute butt going by.
Wishing he were much bolder, he sighed,
"I would give all my pay
To roll that in the hay."
But looked up to see 'she' was a guy.

Pandemonium threatens the land
we woke up and it's not Disneyland.
Congress can't make a plan,
they're just kicking the can
Down the road; we are all on quicksand.

Brown Bag Flu

I made myself sick with the brown bag flu,

     From drinking too much of that “Mountain Dew”;

          So here’s what I say,

          NO drinking today;

                I pray this never happens to you!

A Trip To the Dentist

I went to the dentist today,
And the fee that I had to pay,
For one little tooth,
Was highly uncouth.
It's highway robbery, I say!

Act of Cruelty

Act of cruelty

I believe that an act of cruelty
Is to take away child’s security
So let it be said
When two people wed
Make sure it’s a certain surety.

My Wine

Time to curl up with a bottle of wine,

    I’m not going to share, this bottle is mine;

          If you want a drink,

          There’s more by the sink;

    And I don’t want to hear anyone whine!

~For the Bottle of wine, (fruit of the vine, when.......) Contest~

Take a Hike

Don’t forget the insect repellent

Mosquitoes can cause such discontent

     These bugs make me itch

     Watch me swat and twitch

The cost of “Off” is money well spent

I Cry Rivers For the Ocean

Republican fountain flows black
 on blue seas metamorphic rock, 
draining the earth’s core dry.
Greed streams while oceans cry.
The sea is sick but I’m shell shocked.

Big Fat Lies

I always was a fool for you
Eating your lies with a silver spoon
Now I’m on a diet
But you still try it
Gagging me with a new ruse

A Million-Dollar Dream

One dollar buys a million dollar dream.
Lotteries excite thoughts of esteem.
One day I bought a ticket,
My angst began to fidget.
Until I screamed; then went to redeem!

Three Seconds Left

First he slinks off the field with a miss,
 so forlorn, then the chance to do this.
 Will we boo him to shame?
 Will we drink to his name?
 The ball is downThe kick is up! The kick is...

That's a Nice Living.

They assure you when they take your case
they will put your world right back in place.
So you shoulder the cost,
then they tell you: "We lost."
with such touching dismay on their face.

Eight Years

It’s been eight years, and it still feels the same
As it was then, I seem to have no aim
                            Peer pressure
                            That of a fresher
Searching for my own claim to fame.

Full Circle

Just out of college, we would yearn for a touch
Sleeping together cuddled on the couch
Those were the days!
Of pre-wedding bouquets
Now I am told to go sleep alone on the couch

A Life Game: Greed

What will their eternity win?
Greed, as a vice makes some men grin.
Money is their God.
Poor folks bear guffawed.
Then games bring a different kingpin!

Time Is the Fire In Which We All Burn

Time Is the Fire in Which We All Burn

By Elton Camp

One day, Sue gave an anguished scream		

How it all happened, she couldn’t dream		

Hair unruly, breasts did sag

Her dress was a rag

“I once was on the cheerleader team!”

It's a Miracle!

There once was a drifting skydiver.
He looked down below with grave terror.
He was falling in a tarn.
At an alligator farm –
So he prayed, then he ran on the water!

My Sweet All Sour

" I am sorry!" as I told you before.
You keep saying that I must do more.
Should I break down and cry?
Should I curl up and die?
Either way- you still walk out the door.
