FOR STEPHEN FRY - A MINI ODETTE:)

Stephen Fry, my oh my,
gee you are so very wise,
not a word do you not know,
how on earth can this be so?

I shall strive, to derive, and try so hard, so very hard
to learn even half of what you know;
this I would love so much to show:)

THANKYOU FOR BEING AN INSPIRATION TO ME IN MY SIMPLE EVERY DAY LIFE:)

A BAD WORLD

It's a bad, bad world out there;
it's getting to the point you can't trust anyone, anywhere;
there are still good souls too;
increasingly finding this to be few;

Stand up for what you strongly believe in;
and one fine day you will WIN!!

THE SWEET OLD LADY

One day a sweet old lady walked into a store; she had more than enough scarves, yet still wanted more.

Red, blue, purple, green;
more scarves than you can imagine to be seen.

Pondering, pondering, pondering;
wondering, wondering, wondering;

She says to the scarves "where on earth have you been?"
only to wake up and discover it was a dream:)

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

I met a sweet old lady recently. Immaculately dressed and very polite and well mannered, and still in good shape. I want to be that way when I reach the age of the sweet old lady. I shall grow old gracefully. It is the best way.

BLACKMAIL IN ALL IT'S BRUTALITY

Blackmail,
what an evil trait;
to follow this route will only result in demise;
you really need to be more wise.

Rise up and face the demons,
one of these days you may break even;

When all around expect you to fall;
show them what you are made of and
STAND TALL:)

"NIGHTMARES"

I hate these nightmares,
they really make me fret,
I yearn to wake up; but in this bad dream I am kept,
unsettling images make me cry, cry, cry;
I pretend I am brave, but really I lie, lie, lie;

When at last the nightmare ends,
I wake up distressed, back to reality I find it sends,

I sit bolt upright, my eyes still shut very very tight,
I tell myself really I am alright,
I look out my window and now it's daylight;

I shrug off the bad bad dream;
and head for the kitchen towards my coffee machine:)

********************************************************************
MY GOODNESS I DO HATE NIGHTMARES

ODE TO AARON (MY 12 YEAR OLD SON:) )

"Aaron"

Aaron, you really are quite the little sportsman; crazy about football,
and you give it your all.

There is no end to your talents; you are even into ice-skating;
I think we have a true professional in the making!

You are doing well at school, excelling at French and P.E.;
you know who is really proud? Yes, you guessed it, ME:).

Continue to strive to do your best;
and live each day with plenty of zest!

KEEP WORKING HARD XXXX

FOR FRAZER (MY SOON TO BE 16 YEAR OLD)

"Frazer"

Now you are nearly sixteen;
time to follow some of your dreams;
don't put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today;
try and do your best in each and every way.

You will be out in the big, bad world you know;
so hang on to your hopes and don't let go;
take care each and every day;
there will always be someone trying to lead you astray.

Be wise to this and don't be fooled;
this really is the Golden Rule:)

*********************************************************************
ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE

Oh so black and oh so bleak
my weary heart why must you speak
with viney teeth and simple words
I do believe these thoughts are turds

Turds of dreary, winding ways
Turds of pain and turds of plays
where stilted actors mumble and walk
a dusty stage is all they've got

And poor playwright, you write pain
and pain alone seems to be the gain
of focus on the shifting shadows
your words cast as they hang from gallows

Is there not more to Life than tears
Is there not more than all your fears
set yourself to write what is wrong
a sadder heart neads a happier song

Now downturned mouth in a frozen pout
let go the pity and let go the lout
who broke your heart for a party drink
and don't write again till you can think

up something better than this and that black
or you'll give me a god damned heart attack
with all the sobbing and rooting around
for what lies dead and buried cold, underground

Really? Wow.

p.s. Oh Ambrosia, that bare missive about the car keys I wrote was something that actually happened. I'd gotten up extra early but still wound up in a rush to be off for an appointment. As I searched madly for my keys a growing suspicion about how accurate I'd been with my calendar began niggling at my brain. Once I found my keys - because of course I HAD to do that first! - I checked my calendar and sure enough, I had gotten ready on the wrong freaking day! Grrrrrrr...lol

Really? Wow.

The same thing happened to me just last week. I was on holiday from work, but I had a training course to attend (just for an hour and a half). I had to get in for 10.00am so on the 6th June I got up and dressed and caught the bus. While on the bus, I looked at the bloody letter and the damn course was on the 7th June! So I had to do it all again the next day! I was raging!

Loving the poem, Nitro! That's certainly how to vent your frustration and it's also very entertaining - some great imagery. Did it make you feel a bit better? I'll put my thinking cap on and try and come up with a rhyme, too. This thread is too good and too funny to let go!

Good going, Arlene. I think you've kept this thread going single-handed while the rest of us have been lazy slackers - well, just me really!

Poor Nitro's hard drive is kaput
His heart is all ashes and soot
Oh, what can I do
To make Nitro less blue
And tempt him back out of his hut?

Shall I give him ice-cream in a dish?
Shall I grant him his ever-y wish?
Rich desserts are the key
Well, they do work for me
And chocolate’s the ultimate bliss

I had a catastrophe this morning, in that I had forgotten my password to log in here (oh no!); all is well now though as I have a new and much easier to remember one:)

Ambrosia, that is a great poem, you made me smile this morning when I read it!

I must get back to writing more little poems myself but have had zero inspiration lately. I can barely manage a few sentences, hope that changes soon.

Thanks, Arlene. I know what you mean about zero inspiration. We had a game on this thread for a while where someone thought up a topic and people then wrote a rhyme about it. That was fun and it helped with the inspiration side of things.
