Poor Foghorn

My big ol' rooster,
thought he was cock of the walk...
Until....Red, my hen 
ended it all today with 
a flogging and loud squawk!..

Strange Love

Why do I love you?
When I look into your face
Your teeth are too big,
That nose is extremely long.
Yet all I want in a dog.

Honey, I miss you
Worry not my appetites

My needs are fast and few

Blame It On the Reindeer

Just last year I asked Santa to bring me three things: a good GPS device, dance music CD’s, and a sexy negligee. On Christmas I woke to find just one ornament hanging from my tree - an apology attached giving this explanation: Rudolph got sick, so I needed your GPS. Dancer and Prancer broke open your CD’s, and that Vixen stole your nightie!

Wife yells out the door
"don't forget the cannoli
and DON'T BACK OVER THE KIDS!"

(gotta go murder some guy)

Ill-Fated Coin Flip

They could not decide,
so they flipped a quarter coin.
Terry won, Bob lost.
Bob had to date ugly Sue.
Terry had to date her too.

Valentine O' Mine

Those entrancing eyes

   Gaze longingly into mine

      What is her desire

         Softly purring in my ear

Sleepy Trees

The trees are yawning,
carelessly shedding their clothes
for sweet winter sleep
Like spoiled children who know well
daddy will clean up their mess...

It Was Nothing PERSONAL, PC

She whimpers and whirs
She banters and she b****es
Tired of my abuse
She’s exacting her revenge

THE FLYING WHEEL

The flying wheel spins,
screams of kids terrify me...
I hope they are fine.

I hope they are fine,
with hair sticking out like wheat...
" Stop that flying wheel!" I scream.

Splashing Dog

(This is a Tanka:  Japanese poem of five lines, the first and third composed of five
syllables and the others seven. In Japanese, tanka is often written in one straight line,
but in English and other languages, we usually divide the lines into the five syllabic
units: 5-7-5-7-7.)



Splashing Dog
    by Amy Swanson


Great drops of water
     fly vigorously from him!
Black hair glistening
     he gallops through the river,
     stops only to shake himself!
