'Fenella'

Who be thou lovely vision,
(A vision of cherubs, which float and fly with angels and stardust!)

It be my beloved Fenella!
She dangles with herself over the balcony,
and with roses and posies,
calls forth to my soul,

'Albert! Come'ere!'

And I travel to her as if carried by the dessert sands.

Sands. Of the deepest dessert. Sands.

I don't want to speak too soon, but, fingers crossed, this could be my worst poem yet.

My sister has a shed
a friendly shed

She's had this shed for years and years
because it listens, it's got ears

And when she asks if she should come or go
the shed replies I dunno

Which is all you should reasonably expect
of a building where dust collects

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

I don't know anything about 'friendly' sheds, but I used to know a 'friendly' plank that was never short of advice and opinion about my work, mostly arch.
Moral?
Never seek out the 'friendly' for self-justification.

-----

Broken but still alive
Pushing out the promises and lies
As friends they pass you by
Once self-interested they smiled
Now fair-weather makes them hide.

Hey kid, you're no surprise
That you want to be a part
Of a less than ordinary life.

'Imelda'

Imelda walks with both feet,
And uses her legs as well,
This is really neat,
In fact it's just swell!

I think it's time this topic died a natural death.

Get thee hence, we have only just begun to warm up.

The feet of Imelda
below her knees
wash them daily
please please please.

'Imelda's Feet'

She also brandishes hands,
That do dishes,
Can feel soft as your face,
With mild green hairy lip squid.

(An ancient poem I know but a classic that needed to be brought to the public arena)

Nitro said:
I'm digging on Maxx's streak here of inspired spewetry And I say that with all the love in my black little heart. Keep it up Maxx and maybe Tito will step back in, any minute now. So far, I'm really enjoying it. So thanks to you all.

Words words ye squawking birds
sing shrill or sing low as a blow
below the belt of protest and peeve
Bellow your words on the wind, then to me

how's that for some cack?

I had no idea you yourself had a talent in this direction Nitro!

You've been hiding your light under a bushel.

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! Bravo!!

And Maxx...the Shed poem is inspired brilliance!! ( begin standing ovation )

This is, of course, just my very humble opinion: I would be really blue if this thread died a death. There are at least three potential Poet Laureates - shhhhhh - here and one of them ain't me.

( settle and end standing ovation )

I agree Maxx: Ya'll are just warming up now. Please continue at your leisure yon Poets o'er The Pond ( insert cheesy grin )

Nitro exits, stage right.

Then falls in a drunken stupor down some ill-placed stairs...

Really? Wow.

Many drunk people adore our poetry. You are not alone Nitro dear!

Stairs

The stairs they move and wobble,
As I trip and hobble,
Gimme another drink,
I'm on my way to see my shrink.

(Brief I know but there is football on TV and my muse has gone off to watch the game.) Best Love Tito xx

We lost. My muse is furious.

Anyway, here is my latest poem. It is a gentle piece designed to help me calm down and find solace.

'A Tender Bunny Rabbit Which Hops Gaily'

Thunder howl and bang and rattle,
Rain and splattering hale,
The size of golf balls,
Smack against my head as she hurls them in rage!

And annoyancement beyond all measure,
She stamps her feet and screeches,
From huge emblazoned lungs,
'We was robbed! The Ref wants a slap!'

And she wails more,
And rages East, South, West and North,
And lets this poxy result,
Issue crappingly, voltuitously forth!

I have returned from outer dark
under the trees in Chelmsley park
Ducked beneath the leafy fringes
and avoided treading on the junkies syringes
And what an oddity I have found,
what's these rubber things on the ground?

I am upset to the point of nutty
somebody else is getting smutty
Where's mine is what I say
I'm not packing up though old and grey
I think I'll leave home and get a divorce
and commit perversion with a sheep or a horse.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?
