You drove the ball high
It flew and touched the sky
I heard, “FORE!"
And ducked therefore
But the ball hit my thigh

Some of the things mom never knew happened;-)

A young girl called Freya it’s said
Had ginger hair all over her head
Her dad of her was fond
He said it’s strawberry blond
Not ginger and certainly not red

Our nieces daughter is Ginger haired but her dad is adamant she is not so wrote this for him.

                     The queen of birds Sari dear lived in the mango tree
                     I asked her to come down and take a saree from me
                              She asked wide-eyed the price of it
                               I said,”Sari, you’re a cute tweet”
            She made faces, chirruped short, and flew to the next tree.

A  saree  is a South Asian female garment that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards in length and two to four feet in breadth that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff. 

                      Sari came down and sat on the bay window
                    ‘Dad’, she said,’ you must chain the devil Frido’
                                      “He is a gawky brute
                                  Just now he ate up a coot
                       He needs your boot and a slap on his credo”.

                 Sari tweeted my wife” O mom, don’t pinch my behind”
                   My wife re-tweeted,” Sari, You are not of this kind”.
                          “Sorry to say you have no proper bum
                           So, Sari, how can I be a pinch bum?”
                   Sari re-re-tweeted, “Mom, a lie, my bum is twined.”

                      Sari came one day with his creaky husband Suk
                  “Dad, teach Suk a lesson, he must know how to cook"
                            "Sari, my darling, you’re a sweet fraud
                          Don’t crook Suk’s head with a teaching rod
                      Better teach him how to fly by hook or by crook"

                  Sari, my daughter, in mid September, gave birth to a girl
                   She was a ball of furry delight, eyes were pacific pearl
                               I said, "Sari ,you are now a mother
                               So you must not be antsy like other
                Sari hugged her child,said”dad, no worry, she will be a whirl"

Snag O Rama

Me,my dad and sister Robyn.
Went a fishin with a bobbin.
I hooked a tire and realed it in.
A big ole bullhead was in the bin.
So Dad said, quit your sobbin.

I told my brothers what I caught.
Their disbelief is not what I sought.
My Brother Scott said I was lying.
Brother Terry said quit your crying.
Mother said, don't give it another thought.

I've told this story many times.
And now I've told it with some rhymes.
The best part is, is that it's true.
And with one more line it will be through.
Fishin's fun if you don' mind the slime.

Pilot Dad

There once was a pilot from Alpine
Who became a father in month nine
Took her to the hangar
Where inside he did bang ‘er
But like his plane, didn’t pull out in time

Limerick: Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Limerick : Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam
Paid an urgent visit to a Grande-Dame*
She lifted the stuck log
During Pea-Souper smog
Damn ! Got carried down Grand-Dad Rapids – Wham !

* Dame : pronounced as in French

I'm Writing This Poem For My Dad

I'm writing this poem for my Dad,
I hope it will make him quite glad,
And if he get's sick,
Of this Limerick,
It'll prove that I'm Limerick mad!

Dad was a deaf crab

Dad was a deaf crab

                                    Dad was a deaf crab very bad
                                      My mom was naturally sad
                                             Uca the fiddler
                                          The greatest riddler
                              Riddled dad's deafness- deadbeat dad

I wake up and shower,
look at myself in the mirror,
And say "What the? Where did the time go?"

Disco Dad

I first learned to dance when I was four
But my kids won't let me do it no more
They say I look like a perv
The way I wiggle a swerve
They say I even embarrass the floor

My faculty,my Dad

Once there was a man called Hot, the thief
Crash and Smoke are his favorite disciples
Crash profess "Hell the modesty"
Smoke profess "Pray the modesty"
bloody what could be a common cause?

Nerd Dad

There once was a child with a rattle
Who liked to crawl around cattle.
Until its mom found out
And to her ex did shout,
You just lost your custody battle.

Mum and dad fighting

My mamma called my dad a Martian
They were arguing over the dish washin’
She said “you better beware,”
“Or I’ll knock you block way up there”
For a mute she said it all in fluent Russian

Been MI6 dad arrested her as a communist who poisoned his water
Shot her in a rocket into the sky with his step daughter
The rocket went up 
In the shape of a tea cup
And the world thought it was a flying saucer.

Lesson's Learnt

No offence intended to anyone from Caerphilly or Wales itself. . . 
Twaz the only place I could find it to rhyme with . . . : )

There was young man from Caerphilly
Who was always playing with his willy
Till one day the darn thing just dropped off
A shout from his da working up from aloft
I told you son - never play with your bits willy nilly
Indiana . . . ; )

First time a Parent

Smiling at fatherhood’s expected visitation
and responsibility’s challenging salutation
it came as a freebie
great joy to a newbie
turning back now, an absolute abomination.

My Daughter at 17

Goes with the trend bravely but with half sight
ripe sexuality, her massive headlight
following growth so damp
every act gives a cramp
scaling through with my ancient words, she might.
