There’s a party tonight so I bouffe up my hair Pamper and powder my sweet derrière, Arrive at the door, all done up to impress..... Oh man, I forgot! Invite said “fancy dress”! Pete and Sue are here, seems their theme’s ‘Tarts and Vicars’, Sue’s skirt’s microscopic! Look at her tiny knickers! Pete’s in a nun’s habit; the image is scary, I’ve not seen a nun with a chin that’s THAT hairy! And there’s Spider-Man! (although I’m perfectly certain, His cape is made out of his living room curtain), His curve-hugging costume’s quite “cosy” in size, I think our friend Spidey gobbled too many flies! In the corner, a lady has come as Snow White, Gee, her bosoms are out there, her corset’s so tight, They look like two bald heads squeezed into a sack, Glad my hubby’s not here - he’d have a heart attack! In the hallway, a robot is looking well-oiled - Her costume’s made out of three rolls of tin foil, She looks more like a turkey at Christmas, so later, I really hope no one is tempted to baste her! By the buffet, Fred Flintstone is looking contrite, I think he and Wilma are having a fight, Behaving all “caveman” has got Fred in trouble - He showed his big man-club to poor Betty Rubble! There’s a massive man-baby dressed just in a nappy, The “milk” in his bottle has made him quite happy, He’s shaking his tooshie and sucking his dummy, And asking a lady, “can I call you Mummy?” On the sofa is Princess Fiona from Shrek, Blimey, Count Dracula’s nibbling her neck, I avert my eyes to avoid his rising passion, In walks his wife, and his face turns quite ashen. His irate wife’s dressed up as pop singer Cher, In her see through outfit she looks almost bare, Then she lays into Drac just like Rocky Balboa - She’s drunk as I skunk, I’m relieved I don’t know her! Suddenly, Batman bursts through the door, In his skintight costume - my jaw hits the floor! He’s so muscular - bulges in all the right places, If I play my cards right, could be me he embraces! Well sadly I haven’t a costume of course, Til I spot a young chappie dressed up as a horse, I leap on his back - I’m a great improviser - Strip off and shout “Hey I’m Lady Godiva!” Collaboration between Jan Allison and the amazing Nina Parmenter 3/17/18

Jan, I found it . . . the poem you referenced back in Mar. in a comment re. my poem "Downer." "Fancy Stress" is awesome. You and Nina treat readers to stanza after stanza of comedic masterpieces. I stand all amazed. The brilliance, versatility, and volume of your work is unparalleled. I mean that. xxPaul

YOu two are an absolute MARVEL working together. What a great poem you both did together. WHo did that last line, may I ask? It was my favorite part!!! You really complement each other well with your humorous style. I tried to see this last night and my stupid mouse stopped working, so I had to go offline till I bought batteries!!!

You and Nina P. truly are the "Dynamic Duo!" This is terrific. It should be published somewhere outside of Poetry Soup. I think there's an audience just waiting for an over-the-top screamer of a romp like this one. Bravo!!! :) Gershon

Hey Jan! This is almost too funny for words! I laughed through every verse and definitely recognized your humour at play. I saw it on the "newest poems" list and commented but I guess that comment just went to Nina. A fabulous collaboration!

I'm delighted you dropped by Ilene I had a feeling you would appreciate this particular collaboration, we had such fun writing it I was crying with laughter as the e mails flew between us. Nina and I share such a similar sense of humour it was a joy writing with her:-) hugs jan xx
Date: 3/18/2018 4:34:00 PM
Jan, another hugely fun collaboration to be a half of! I always have to steal myself and sit down when your stanzas come through!! In a totally good way!!!!! Your imagination and wit are priceless x

Date: 3/18/2018 3:02:00 PM
"Over the top," that's how I fancy it. There are too many lines that put me into terminal delirium: Snow White's bosoms, for example, and "shaking his tooshie and sucking his dummy." Call a taxi. Clearly, you and Nina should party on and on and on, having written a comedic tour de force without parallel. Fabulous. Paul
