"This hairstyle is simply not right.
I really do feel such a sight."
"Oh nonsense, my dear
you’ve nothing to fear
I’ll make sure they turn out the light.."
ENTRY FOR POND POETRY ROUND 48
In summer we play in the sun
Lots of games and there’s plenty of fun
We’ve been having a ball
But we’ve just gone through fall.
In Australia, winter’s begun.
THE NIGHT SKY
Our fault’s in ourselves, not our stars.
Don’t blame it on Venus and Mars.
They’re planets, you fool.
Where did you go to school?
Has your brain been locked up behind bars?
I’ve been playing the bagpipes for years,
and driven the neighbours to tears.
They’ve begged and they’ve pleaded
‘til at last I conceded
that I’d buy great big muffs for their ears.
"Becoming a monk isn’t cool.
No women or booze, that’s the rule."
"I know, Dad, I know
But I do love her so
and she’s making me feel such a fool."
There’s a very bad smell from the drain.
I don’t think it’s due to the rain
It needs a good flush
not just with a brush.
One more time, try explosives again.
DEATH AND TAXES
There’s only two sure things today.
Death and taxes – we all have to pay
Excepting my mother,
the Queen and one other
who that is, I’m not going to say.
"Now good little boys and girls care
You really must learn how to share."
"Oh give it a rest.
My daddy knows best
He says you’re a dingbat, so there."
