Hi, Nitro, I am glad you're back
I wondered where you'd gone
And now I'm trying to penetrate
The words and meaning of your song
Are you humming righteously
Or have you turned to jazz?
Is it rock or pop or opera
Or have you been out on the razz?
Whatever you've been doing, mate
Be sure to hum along
And if you're offered sex and drugs
Just take the lot and sing your song

I just did a poem and posted it and it's completely disappeared.

That's weird, now I've done this post it's reappeared again.

Ode To An Instance

Pt 1
So sorry to hear of your digital misfortune
but glad it came back
on track
just like

That.

Pt 2

A firelight dims over the tops of my feet
and in flickering shadows of black and pale yellows
Miles whispers behind my ear;
the stealthy fellow.

"Wake up",he says,"or the flames will go out
and you'll shiver and grow rigid. Not cool, man."
Was that Miles Davis? Really?
Or the Drug of Ambrosia?

hee hee, your turn

Really? Wow.

Hi there,

Excuse me please but with 512 replies, I do not have the time nor inclination to scroll through all of them.
As such, I am commenting on the initial post. Everyone can write poetry. Everyone SHOULD write poetry. It is cathartic.
However, to retaliate to criticism with sarcasm or venom states (to me) that the poetry is written with the desire to 'unearth' and then retaliate to this distain (similar to football hooligan attending a match)
Why are you bothered? And similarly, why are the people who express negative critique bothered to write?
Ask yourself this question... is it important to you? If so, why? I believe that what IS important is that it's YOUR voice and you are expressing YOUR voice as you wish. Don’t be dismayed, do not get angry. Enjoy your freedom of speech and rejoice in your own creativity.

K76, I don't understand your post at all. This has been a thread of people having fun with words and rhyming. I don't know why you think there is any sarcasm or venom involved. We all know what we write isn't Shakespeare, we're having a laugh and hopefully entertaining each other.

Sorry, Nitro, I've been a bit lax on the doggerel front.

Here I am on the Doggerel Front
It's lonesome and kind of arid
The dogs are silent, the cats don't hunt
And echoing remnants of poems are carried
Along the ground like tumbleweed
The hot wind sighs, I'm all alone
My poetry has gone to seed
So, Nitro, let those seeds be sown
Then we will see odes grow and spread
And dire rhymes will ne'er be dead
The Doggerel Front will have street cred
Cos all is done when it is said...
Now I MUST stop and cry instead!

Perky

Perky, I am as I skip and jump,
I pick a flower and have a sniff,
But then I trip over a lump,
And plunge head first over a cliff.

Dead.

No. No, it's not working is it?

This better?

Perky, I am as I skip and jump,
I pick a flower and have a sniff,
But then I trip over a lump,
And plunge head first over a cliff.

Bump.

A Dull Day

The skies are grey;
The clouds are full of haze;
I'm tired of this craze;
It's all just a phase;
My life is a maze;
I want to erase;
But I cannot trace;
Back to that time and place:(

I would proffer, then offer, that K76
is a troll; a mole troll.
The End

Ambrosia, don't cry on the doggerl front
the fireflies there might bite your butt
so escape as soon as you possibly can
and eat pounds and pounds of chocolate while
getting a massage and/or a warm bath.

Dear Henry,
I am going to speak to you in a bad German accent, effective now.
Zay-er goot! Kantz dew shprekken me getten metten?
Entshewldeegungg foor mine peepee vahzzoor shryben.
Biz bahlt,
Nutro
P.S. Did you notice the bad New Orleans accent I tossed in( for FREE! ), as well?

Ode To A Dog

I was very lucky to have found you
in that thrift store
or, was I?
And which one of us does the term
'animal cruelty' actually apply
to? Ah Ha!!

Really? Wow.

A troll? I didn't think of that.

Then here's my advice to K76 -
Stay under your bridge and eat Weetabix
Till you explode and your innards burst
Cos trolls are twits and therefore cursed
They make me fume and write bad verse
So I'll make this poem rather terse
The metre's shot and it's getting worse
Bugger!

*****************************************

Nitro, did you find your dog
In the thrift store
At the Doggerel Front?
If so, you have only yourself to blame
You should have bought a pussycat
They're easier to love
But somewhat harder to train
Which is both a blessing and a shame

"Homeward Bound"

I feel the heat from the sun;
I hear the tin roofs 'creaking';
I sense the wonders of nature, it's heart loudly beating;
Dreaming of a world far, far away;
Dream, dream, dreaming my life away;

Will my heart ever mend?
Will this pain ever end?

I reminisce to happier times;

I believe the heart can mend;
I believe the pain can end;

I don't know when;
I just don't know when;

I feel the heat from the sun - and clasp on to "The One"

"This is me - don't try and change it..."

ODE TO OWEN

"When You Are With Me"

WHEN YOU ARE WITH ME,
THE SUN SHINES BRIGHTER;

WHEN YOU ARE WITH ME,
THE BURDEN OF MY TROUBLES SEEM LIGHTER;

WHEN YOU ARE WITH ME,
YOUR EYES SAY MORE THAN ANY WORDS COULD;

WHEN YOU ARE WITH ME,
THERE IS NO BAD IN YOU, ONLY GOOD

WHEN YOU ARE WITH ME,
I FEEL SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AS MY SON; THIS POLITE LITTLE MAN,
MAKES ME FEEL SO PROUD TO BE

YOUR MUM!! X

Appointment with a Doctor

Wake up and shower.
Have some coffee.
Am I ready yet?
Where's my watch?
Dang it.

Where did I put that thing?
Where are my car keys?
Dog, did you take my car keys?
Nevermind, you have to go for a walk.
We'll figure it out later.

Oh crap! Seriously: where are my keys?
There they are!
I gotta go, I gotta go!
See you later, alligator!
Wait a minute:

What day is it today?

Oh for pete's sake!!

~Fin

Really? Wow.

Very moving poems, Arlene.

Nitro, his sounds like my panic to get to work every morning. No car or car keys, but you've captured that same running around like a headless chicken!

Thankyou Ambrosia:) When I write poems, I feel like I have failed in some way if they do not rhyme. I am not sure why. I could maybe try and write some poems that do not rhyme; but it won't be easy.

I love having this forum to express my thoughts, feelings and the odd little poem I feel like writing. The poems I am happiest with are the ones written within 5 minutes; the ones I have just that minute thought of in my head and must write down straight away in case I forget; and I do get in a panic at the thought of forgetting.

I can go days and days and have no good ideas; then have 50 ideas all at the same time. It is very strange.
