DRUIDS AND PRIESTESSES
The arch druid stormed through the door,
giving vent to a furious roar.
A virgin priestess
had been forced to confess
that she wasn’t intact any more.
THE SINS OF THE RICH
Lord Fanshawe was troubled by gout,
especially when he dined out.
He drank too much port,
far more than he ought.
Which caused him to scream and to shout.
A BLAMELESS LIFE
My great aunt Samantha once said,
“I can’t get it out of my head.
I’ve lived like a nun,
and not had much fun.
Just crocheted lace doilies instead.”
An egghead who hailed from Japan
was a truly remarkable man.
He sat on a wall
and had a great fall.
The king’s men took him off in a van.
A’top of the old abbey stair
stands a door that is really not there
It’s a gateway to hell
so it IS just as well
there’s a zombie that screams out “BEWARE!!”
Another old doorway I’ve seen,
hides a secret bizarre and obscene.
It’s been sealed by a curse,
and what makes it worse
it’s painted a bilious green.
EXISTENTIAL PHILOSOPHY (1)
I’m facing the future with fears.
I’ll be there in not many years.
My old crystal ball
isn’t working at all.
So I’m left with depression and tears.
EXISTENTIAL PHILOSOPHY (2)
I’m facing the future with hope.
I’m not going to sit here and mope.
I’ve got things to do
I’ll achieve them all, too.
For I know very well I can cope.
