I WISH - NOT FOR CONTEST

I wish that I was a born a man I‘d drink beer straight out of a can I’d play football and darts Laugh about smelly farts And not bother about a spray tan My motor would be very flash A Ferrari would cost lots of cash I would not have a care About my balding hair I’m loaded, can afford to be brash I’d develop a really cool swagger Strut about like singer Mick Jagger With my huge beer belly I’d lounge by the telly If wifey moaned then I’d just bag er! Fiction write Inspired by I wish I was a Contest Sponsored by Viv Wigley 3/5/18

If you were a man just like me// you'd learn to piddle silently// exaggerate the size// of the bits by your thighs// and man boobs in a size double d. :)

Lol Viv, I had fun writing this tongue in cheek poem about those unusual creatures called men lol :-) hugs jan xx

Too funny!!...And glad you're NOT a man, by the way. I mean, my gosh, such high standards for the rest of us men to have live up to. I don't think any of us could, except for maybe old Donald Trump. (I'm assuming for now that he actually is a man, and not an illegal alien or space alien, or whatever). Best wishes, gw

Thanks for the lovely comment:-) Not everyone appreciates my humour John but at the end of the day they don't have to read me or more importantly write negative comments on my poem as happened earlier:-) hugs jan xx

Many love your limericks, Jan...bawdy or not. I don't usually comment on those and you're fully aware as to why. But I never make fun of the humor you bring to the site and anyone who wants to chastise you for doing so in whatever form you choose should refrain from reading you.

Tommy you've removed your previous comments. You have made it clear you disapprove of the poem and the picture so why keep visiting the poem unless its just to stir the pot once more.

Wrong and you can save your sarcasm and waste it on someone else. I've repeatedly asked you not to respond to my comments and yet here you are again, intruding where you're not wanted. I'll not be around, checking to see if you need to have the last word, so take it if your ego overrides your conscience.

It's best to ignore the ignorance of the ignorant. I think I posted something like that a while back. You're none of those things, to which many can attest. His arrows aren't poisoned, but he thinks they prick.

oh I see he's done his usual trick of firing poisoned arrows then retracting them - well I am glad the comments are gone as he intimated I was 'fattist', racist ,and against disabled people which is totally untrue and very hurtful. hugs jan xx

I wouldn't have removed the pic, Jan. Anyone who knows you would certainly know you don't intentionally hurt the feelings of anyone. If that man had an issue with his picture being online he would've had it removed. Nothing you write needs defending, and you've never used racism in a poem, so it never should've been mentioned by some ne're do well.

Good stuff, Jan, but I would never wish for this misery. You seem very inspired today to do limericks. Let me check out the third one I saw. I am using Joe's laptop up in the bedroom tonight!! I have tons of catching up to do.

I can do all of that stuff as a woman, but this is a darling poem, and I hope you win the prize, because with words like farts, and Ferrari and huge beer belly it would be a travesty if you did not win.

A witty flowing set of Limericks, Jan. At first I thought of Onslow in 'Keeping Up Appearances', but he was too lazy to 'bag' anyone! Hugs // paul

lol Mike its a tongue in cheek poem :-) The poem came first, in fact the poem for the contest came first and then I expanded it with this poem. I'm not sure if Viv is after 1 poem or if a string of poems is acceptable:-) hugs jan xx
