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

Salty and Sweet Limerick

Is it sweet or salty or sour?
Brimming with happiness or always dour?
Prancing, living with gaiety
Or waiting for a guillotine 
Now standing forever to scour?

The Calcium Thief

A badgering wife caused her husband such grief,
Each time she did he ground his teeth,
Over the years his teeth become
Nothing but stumps upon his gum,
His friends all called her, 'the calcium thief.'

There was an old leprechaun chief,
His haemorrhoids caused him some grief,
So he cussed and he swore
That his butt was so sore,
And wiped with a soft shamrock leaf.

Who married a trouble-maker.

I understand and respect the way you feel.
I know a desire to be sexy is your freewheel.
you eat once a day...since May you never betray.
keep holding on just for more few days and you will be a keel.

I Was the Better Man

His suits and empires made it so swift
from afar all you saw was his mid-rift
with me you were glowing
our future was moving
from his dark pit, you now expect a lift.

Winter Gray

This winter has brought unrelenting gray
Unlit gray sky is all I've seen for days
Gray snow a relief
From gray rain's dank grief
Hurry, springtime - make the gray go away!

Exclamation Point

Liberty Bell, cracked and muted after the war
Apostrophe after every catastrophe under par
Homerun in the Long March of Second War
Coins on cairns of foes and heroes in jar
An exclamation point in war under par.

Lucky Indian

Indian met white man at the docks.
Taught him to plant corn and shared his flocks.
White man gave disease and grief,
Stole his lands like common thief.
Indian lucky to keep his mocs.

Kissing Suzanne

My first love was called Sue Heather,
I thought I’d love her forever.
We kissed and came to grief:
With braces on her teeth,
She stapled my lips together.

He Found A Cubic Zirconia In The Rough

he sat at the bar looking over at her tee
in bold letters it read catch and release me
after a few drinks he was game
closing on the brink of her flame
his shrank as she imparted a handling fee

Mind Your Prayers

Poor Noah was stuck on the Ark
Quite fed up with hearing dogs bark
He prayed God, "God Grief!
Please grant us relief!" 
So now canines howl in the dark!

There was a man from Nilkhet,
He used to put his money into his pocket.
While he was working at his store,
He heard someone nocked on his door,
He didn't know how did he pick pocket!
