Monkey See

Monkey See~

There once was a monkey named Frank
Who loved to walk the plank
He said too many jokes
Pulled too many hoaxe-s 
Ha! Ha! Ha! Then he got a good spank


Who's that monkey in front of me
I dare to hang with you on a tree
Oh! What I do? Will you do?
Together we are like glue
Is that my flea or your flea?

Brother Told Us

Brother told us sometimes that he peed
sitting down with a good book to read,
but with his ding-a-ling
he was having a fling
when we spied on him.  Good book indeed!

Written 5/20/14 for Roy Jerden's Bawdy, Bawdy, Bawdy, Miss Clawdy Limerick Contest

By the way, from comments I am getting, I need to let everyone know this is simply a fabrication. My brother told us nothing, and we never spied on him. And our small bathroom shared by ten people would not have suited this purpose! hahaha

Big Brother's Promise

For a while our mommy got fat
and so grouchy. I didn’t like that!
But early one day
Dad took mommy away.
They came back and her tummy was flat!

In her arms there was something so small
that I barely could see it at all.
I just wanted to hold
it. You’d think it was gold!
They said, “Don’t let your new brother fall.”

You bawled every day with such might
you gave our cat, Felix, a fright.
It was such a great day
When I heard Mommy say,
“The baby now sleeps through the night.”

Your first smile today was for me.
You’re going to be a good buddy.
There’s so much that we’ll do.
Here’s my promise to you:
The best brother ever I’ll be!

My Baby Brother


I cuddle with my little baby brother
so special he's like no other
a unique gift from above
a true endless love
"a bundle of pure joy" says mother

I'll protect him with my own soul
as along life's path we stroll
he need never feel fear
or in pain shed a tear
for in me he can always console

What Goes Up, Must Come Down

bouncing pouncing jumping up down    keen   		
somersaults  on  trampoline 				
enthusiasm giggles					
out doing  big brother’s  errs				
bouncing higher    higher   like  jumping beans		

what goes up must come down     what the hack  	
	flip, lull ….  plop  flop   flat on his back	
turns head over heels in air  				
landing on her feet  with flair					
this is the way you do it  	  with knack

Polka Dot Swimming Trunks

In Florida one right hot summer
A free soul was havin' a bummer
So in spray painted undies
Next holiday Monday
He split to the Springs with his rummer.


Equally inspired by a net(te) comment and the lovely natural resources in North Florida

**D.J. SoundJack**

Reggae serenades a run down shack
Exquisite beats by D.J. SoundJack  
A tall dreaded hippie
Surprisingly witty
One that thrives on negative feedback

* D.J SoundJack is not a fictional character, he is one of my dearest friends and 
  biggest supporters. He spins all over the Tri-City area and in the Burroughs.
  A raw talent indeed that throws a great show regardless of the venue.*

i feel his heart in mine

Pain drips from the cracks of my broken heart
They look at my face but are blind
I know were never truly apart
As I sit today he crosses my mind
I feel his heart in mine.

My cheeks soak up these past do tears
The hurt so deep it can never heal
They’re coming to life, all my fears
It’s still not real, it’s so surreal
I feel his heart in mine.

Little Brother

Look what I got from my mother
This little guy is my brother
And I'm hoping that he
Will grow up to like me
And we'll always be there for each other

Indian Giving Brother

Received gift one day, from another
Given in love, from older brother
Borrowed back at one time
Not returned, what a crime
Worst Indian giver, than any other

Brother of Moses

The effort i've put in
Carefully put to the side
I want to be perfect to you
Not someone you'll hide

First i was your little boy
I laughed it off and so did you
But i've taken the blame
for every fu-king thing you do

You say that you'll stop
You never follow through
Every time i see you
Its like deja vu

You're my dad so i love you
But i dont know if i can take it
I wish i could walk away
From all of your bulls-it

You dont beat me
But i still feel abused
Ajd in the end
Your still compleatly amused

"The Nano Uno"

Superior energy in UFO's
Paranormal informal, Friends or Foes?
  Flying dam well where they please
  Having humans on their knees 
No power resists the Nano Unos

Note: Nano Uno are angelic words, meaning “Power of The Source!” AGAPE 2  [aa g?

There wad a young man who was nuts
And always lived in garden huts
He screamed at night
And we all got a fright
But I blame all those welfare cuts

A Dentist Named Phil

                               There once was a dentist named Phil.
                               His patients could never sit still.
                               He thought to sedate,
                               when it was too late.
                               So it never appeared on the bill.

                               He was known for his foot pedaled drill.
                               Its noise was incredibly shrill.
                               His patients would cry,
                               some said "goodbye,"
                               but he came to work for the thrill.

                               His brother was a geologist named Rocky.
                               He was considered by all a bit cocky.
                               He had not a tooth,
                               Because Phil, in his youth,
                               Knocked'em all out playing hockey.

                               Phil did his best to be friends.
                               And in an effort to finally make amends,
                               he willed Rock his teeth,
                               as he wished to bequeath
                               his smile before he descends.

                               When Phil finally made it to Hell.
                               Satan laughed so hard that he fell.
                               Phil just had his gums,
                               and spoke in short hums.
                               What he said nobody could tell.

'Grimm' Tales of Dread

Jacob and Wilhelm are the Brothers Grimm
Whose tales of horror flow over cup's brim
I heard that some who have read
Were cursed and later found dead

The chance that you will survive is quite slim

Joe made a big mark
He painted his albino brother black
When mother found him guilty
Joe said: "black is beauty."
