Ok my challenge to post a poem a day in alphabetic order

A=31st Aug 2010

A Hat

A mate of mine Bought a red wool hat
it made his head so ugly and fat
When it rained the dye ran down his eye
why choose red? I had to ask him why?
He said that red is hot and wild like he
Always moving never having time to pee

I just laughed and thought oh well
his reasons ringing like a bell
Maybe next time he'll choose blue or black
At least that colour will match his long mac

B = 1st September 2010

Bee

To be a bee or not to be a bee
THAT is the question
Or whether 'tis nobler to be a wasp
And suffer the stinging rebukes
Of a buzzzzzzzing reputation lost
This bloke the humans called the Bard
Never had a clue, let's sting him hard!

PS: I just realised this is probably your challenge to yourself. Sorry, ignore mine and carry on!

POEM B 1st September

Be mine

Be mine as my bones crumble with age
stay with me as I turn life's page
Be mine when everything seems lost
When the price is high pay my cost

Be mine when clouds darken my sky
never stopping to ask me why
when raindrops fall like deep rivers
Take away my coldness my shivers

Be mine long after I take my last breath
loving me even in the shadows of death
remember always I own you yes your mine
A knowledgeable brain, cells all in line

B is before C
C is before D
D is before E
Before I go on
Have you gone?

Do not worry about things you have not got

E.g. Money

Sounds a lot of fun so my answer's yes, NP. Do we do the subject and letter at the same time or separately? Anyway, a limerick to go on with, as I need to get ready for work and have a think!

C = 2nd September 2010

Coronation Street

There's only one street that I know
And it's Corrie, the other soaps blow
With humour and grit
Elsie Tanner's got "it"
Ah, nostalgia's a honey-toned glow

I'll do better later. Breakfast and a cuppa needed. Your topic - Ireland.

Poem C 2nd September subject Ireland

Come ye english men to ireland
my home, my love, such a fine land
my country land fresh as a daisy
Ireland you never cease to amaze

Green so green the land of my mother
no country better there is no other
blessed with luck of the lepricorn
fairys dance on the grass dewy at morn

Come Ye to Ireland our Mothers land
we will always extend a friendly hand
stay a while enjoy it with me
The golden land of opportunity

Both excellent ones, Wak and NP! I didn't think of another street one, but here's my C.

Cross, said Satan, very cross
My fury's incandescent
The lighting in my burning Hell's
Been changed to fluorescent
Instead of painful, red-hot flames
My place looks bright and clean
So don't you think I have the right
To bitch and shout and scream?
