His funeral

That he planned his funeral is factual
And being a prankster quite actual
He prerecorded his voice
So when we kneeled on the joist
He said, "Hi there! Don't I look natural."

A golf limerick

While a man was golfing in Fife
a funeral cortege was arife,

       his head bowed in prayer
       at this somber affair

to pay last respects to his wife!

Lady of the night!

Your body men desire
It fills them full of fire
They want so much
To feel the touch
The gifts you have for hire.

You walk the streets so dark
Your future bleak and stark
You work for bugs
To buy the drugs
That really hit the mark.

Your pimp is a drug dealer
A professional money stealer
You feel the pain
Hooked on cocaine
He is your true fate-sealer.

You passing nobody to mourn
Thirty years since you were born
You only know your punter
Who really was your hunter
But it’s you the people scorn!

Danger - Musicians

There was an old lady from Ireland 
Who was frightened to death by a brass band
We watched with dismay
As without delay
They buried her corpse in the band stand

Bank of reptilians ready to dine,
Dinner is served on a parachute line
  The right place at the wrong time,
  Compliments, the dinner wine,
Smooch goodbye the place, where the sun don't shine,

Just Ask And It Shall Be Given.

This Club Med lagoon really holds the heat,
with a beach front view and a coral suite.
But the best of all
as we watch it fall
is how they serve up each meal on a sheet!

Unreceived Parcel

Unreceived  Parcel

I have sent your parcel
Please be patient 
Your curtain hooks have been sent
It's on its way
Yes sir, I have sent it

I will make a special delivery
Through the dark forces of night
In horse and cart
Await me at 2pm tonight
Leave the window slightly ajar
I will ring three chimes on my arrival
With your special delivery
Slide open the window
Look down

You will see me standing there with your parcel
Slowly on your toes 
Push forward and slide out the window
Reach for me
Alas you will have your parcel 
I will have delivered the goods
The wife will have curtain hooks to hang the curtains
Then your curtains will be closed forever
I will place roses on your grave
Sending you a graceful goodbye
Delivering, your unreceived goods

a cocky young shooter called Bill
believed no one could rival his skill
alas it was liquor
that proved to be quicker
as they loaded him off to boot hill.

Inane and Insane - or is it the other way around

A sub human waste dump named Pence
Has thoughts that defy common sense 
And who wants this chump?
The assinine Trump
Who thinks with his rump so immense

What is something uproarious?
Her plan to be victorious
Who must to us speak
Since democracy’s Greek?
Hilarious Clintorius!

Politicians Gather Money

One thing said about politicians
They can gather money like  morticians
Who bring dead for burial
That go to meet Gabriel
While politicians greet contributions

Suit Trump Wore

You should see suit that Trump wore
It was actually made by a whore
As can be sure was certainly tight
Which is way he ends up every night
Must be big bed bugs that him do bite.

On A Funeral Bier

On A Funeral Bier

Death my body did devour
As it occurred hour by hour,
End eventually would reach
When to God I now beseech
While lying on a funeral bier.

You should google funeral 
bier sometime.
