whose wiener's so long it would stab ya'

but when it got little 
his pills became skittles   
until he O.D.'d on Viagra

Rock, Paper, Scissors

I have a theory to test
I always thought scissors was best
When I throw scissors down
A rock comes around
I should have done paper I guess

Next time it is paper I throw
And just like that don’t you know
His scissors appears
And my paper it shears
A rock would have won it and so

The next time it’s rock in my hand
I’ll win it this time – I’m the man
Then his paper comes out
Wraps my rock without doubt
This game I just don’t understand

But you know the next time we meet
He’ll be the one that is beat
I just have to think through it
Don’t know how I’ll do it
But somehow I’ll learn how to cheat

Everyone thinks since i smile
that everything is good
no one knows its been a while
since i last had good food. 

I live in a good neighborhood
My neighbors, all quite wealthy
just snacking when i could
and trying to stay healthy

everytime you go to school
your stomach starts to rumble
always looking like a fool
when you trip and stumble.

i know what its like to feel sick
the fuzz that passes through your brain
people acting like a prick
not knowing your in pain.

i go to school like normal
i tell no one of my issues
no need to make it formal
i just grab a few more tissues.

you may not even notice me
im just your everyday dumb teen
you cant see what i see
or know where i have been.

i go to school each day
and go to work each night
working for my pay
so i can grab another bite.

we go to homeless dinners
and i feel my heart clench tight
not feeling like the winner
should i really have to fight?

so now i lay my head
and dream of a full tummy
and as i lay in bed
i dream of yummy yummies.

 First he slinks off the field with a miss,
 so forlorn, then the chance to do this.
 Will we boo him to shame?
 Will we drink to his name?

Wonderful Star

                                   There once was a wonderful star 
                                 Who thought she would go very far
                                            Until she fell down
                                         And looked like a clown
                                   She knew she would never go far
                                     She would land near the moon

light a candle

light a candle. 
let it glow with hope. 
let its thin film of smoke 
disperse the dark clouds. 
let it drizzle and frizzle out your stress, 
let it wash off the stench of sweat. 
let your pregnant hope 
deliver twins and triplets; 
multiple tales of success.

A Happily Ever After Marriage

There once was a poet extraordinaire,
Who composed sweet poetry with great care. 
She wanted to find true love.
So, she prayed to God above.
He swiftly answered, “Sweetheart, you must forbear.”

Forbearance was her lonely heart’s nightmare.
She was a passionate woman with flare.
Singing in a high octave.
Counting petals of foxglove.
She drank martinis alone in her lair.

A brilliant mind with hope and a prayer,
Resting her head on a lonely armchair.
Praising spirits up above,
She heard Ron’s voice, cute white dove.
Alas, she found him…marriage…love so fair.

Hey Fancy Face


Suzie sure did love technology
especially cosmetology
when Botox became her friend
each wrinkle it did mend

Pen flies when out of sight,
Boy, I hope that I'm right.
No award for me,
What a shame that'd be,
At least I gave it all my might.

Diagnosis Unknown

Francine is nothing but a little skin and a bit of bone.
She works from her house and she lives all alone.
The old gal eats just a little;
Plays the violin, not the fiddle;
And she speaks to herself on the phone.

First of May

"First of May"

When I was a child I ran away
To live with the circus in Bombay,
Where all things were new
And possible, too!
So, for this they called me "First of May"!

I started out selling concessions:
Hot! Popcorn! Hot! Peanuts! Confections!
But in my spare time,
I'd secretly climb
Into the Great Cannon--for missions!

My costume and cape were blue and grey,
Spark'ling like stars with each flight--Away!
By day selling fare--
Nights--Fly Through The Air!
Dreams do come true when you're "First of May"!*

deborah burch©

*Note: "First of May" is a circus term used to describe 'newbies' who come to the means that everything is new,exciting, fresh, and anything/everything is possible! :)

A Limerick To Those Who Can Not Acknowledge The Evolution Of Poetry:

You are witnessing a change in tone,
A new piece of the Rosetta Stone...
It may blow your mind
To find your behind
Has fallen quite far from the throne.

Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea

Like sheep on a steep rocky slope,
We need to have guidance to cope.
We might fall and slide down
To the sea and all drown.
Heed the Shepherd. He’s our only hope.

Floating on a waterfall.

Indeed I dare not say yes.
But soon there will come a day.

Limerick In My Pocket

This year I will lose weight I do think
No matter how hard too I will shrink
But what shall I not eat 
I don’t like anything sweet
This year I won’t lose weight I do think…

No cakes pass my lips no sweeties I eat
I eat some fish and a little red meat
What do I let go west
Perhaps a tighter vest
Will help the fat to slip down to my feet…

No luck I tried, my vest is now too wide
I tuck it into my pants at the side
That made them unsightly
There’s no more twice nightly
Hoist them as a sail, and leave on the tide…

My new years wishes and hopes are now gone
We have not even reached day number one
I am paying the toll
For each nice sausage roll
My hopes and man, have set sail in the sun…

My vest sailed out to sea, now what shall I do?
My chest in the winter perhaps will turn blue
If you have an idea
You can whisper it here
There may be something to keep warm we can do…

Sky-Scraped Ruins

The evening fresh, 
stars allure, 
birthed- ground-breaking. 

To look back, seems feeble
forward, Vigorous.

It is almost too late, 
I have hollowed a place
for each hope I carried, 
trickery twisted imagination. 

The sky littered, 
calling...all visions to death, 
each cup of soil, 
befriending faith with roses
as I walk away, 

There are no more stones-
upon stones, 
upon stones, 
only hours perhaps,

Trust and Listen:

He's beside me when I'm lonely.
He hears me when I cry.
This lonesomeness inside me; often times, it's hard to hide.
Hush now don't you worry.
Please wipe those tears away.
Tis I who stands beside you, each night and everyday.
Know I have always been there.
Not once were you alone.
Twas I whose walked beside you, wherever you may roam.
Tis I whose voice your hearing.
The one who guides those home, whenever they are lost.
Please hush now don't you worry.
Please wipe those tears away.
His voice I trust and listen, for it never fades away.
Those words they bring me comfort, each night and everyday.
Please now, won't you listen?
For these words he's had me write:
He is there when you are lonely.
He has always heard your cries.
The lonesomeness inside you; yes he knows, it's hard to hide.
Please now, won't you listen?
Put aside your foolish pride.
Open up your heart to hear him and all he has to say.
Don't you know he stands beside us, each night and everyday.
It is him whose always been there.
Not once were you alone.
Twas him whose walked beside you, wherever you had roamed.
Tis his voice you have been hearing.
The one who guides us home, whenever we are lost.
Know he will always hear you, even when you think he won't.
Hush now don't you worry.
Please wipe your tears away.
His voice; if one trusts and listens, will never fade away.
Let his words now bring you comfort, each night and everyday.

money is not the god that I serve

money is not the god that I serve
for faith in the Lord God is not graded on the curve
God is not concerned with man's window dressings
and He doesn't give a damn about what the world finds impressing
just  trust in Him and he will give you an abundance of blessings
and your soul He will preserve

money is not the god that I desire
for Father God will give me all that I will require
He looks into the minds and hearts of every man
He wants us to live by the spirit of His commands
and once you  become a part of His master plan
the Holy Spirit  you will then acquire

money is not the god that I need to develop a relationship
for only through Jesus Christ will I have passage on that heaven-bound ship
and with only a mustard seed of faith
I will be entering through God's pearly gates
and so joyful that I can hardly wait
for my soul will have had such a great trip

After 50 -  states a well known belief
Your colon can cause you some grief.
        To get it checked is the answer
        In case there’s a cancer
With a procedure which can give you relief.

A colonoscopy needs to be done
Granted it isn’t much fun
        You hope no polyps they find
        if they do -  hope they’re benign
If they are, then be happy - you’ve won.

Have you ever been lost? 
with no sense of up or down
what could be the cost 
of a lifeless body they found
a man that lost it all
there's nothing he has left
nobody left to call
nothing left but death
but wait is that hope i see up there?
a daughter he left behind
thoughts of the smell of her hair
memorys that cut and bind
nope that was just hope 
and a love he me never find

Did You Ever ?

Did you ever sit and ponder
about  God's miraculous wonders
or sit back and reflect
on the religious aspects?
It makes my heart for Him fonder

Did you ever question the existence of God?
I don't think that question that is very hard
because I know what I feel
that the Lord my God is truly  real
and I gratefully give Him my heart

Did you know that the death of Jesus was sacrificial?
because man's belief  was so superficial
as Jesus'  death was the method to repent
yet mankind's sinning ways would not relent
for mankind's faith was so artificial

But there is one thing I can certainly convey
as ye reap as you sow, the Bible does say
just exalt and glorify God and in Him rejoice
praise and worship Him with a cheerful voice
and He will treasure you all of your days

You Gave Me A Smile

You gave me a smile,  a stranger, how nice,
I didn't even know you, I didn't have to joke or entice,
you gave me a smile, a stranger, how nice.

A smile, such a simple thing to do,
you reminded me of that too,
You gave me a smile, a stranger, how nice.

Your smile has affected me all day,
made me smile at him , instead of what I really wanted to say,
You gave me a smile, a stranger, how nice.....

Freddy The Fly Wonders Why

Good ol' Freddy, always ready,
Though he don't know why,
He should even try,

One day Freddy decided
it was time for a change,
So he went to an entomologist,
to see if he could arrange,
To be turned into a mosquito,
Now isn't that strange?

He thought if his word had
more of a bite,
He would start feeling all right,

But the Doctor said no,
As a fly you must go,
Now please get out of my sight!!
