Elizabeth's Throne

Elizabeth’s Throne You still sit on England’s grand throne! For sixty plus years crown you own! Your subjects all wait— Will you abdicate? Will Charles make it to the King zone? © Sandra M.

There once was a lady named "Mom"
Who had a hard time keeping calm.
But she knows how to sew
And garden and mow
And she's a farmer on

She's a grandma to Mel and Harmony
She's a young wife for "Gramps" who's 70! 
She calms the waters
Of her four lovely daughters
And best of all she puts up with me.

Mother nature's son

The world is a factory farm
And no one can save nature's charm
The harm from this binge
Makes ecologists cringe
And stinks like a raw underarm

Author's note: Let the games begin and hold your nose.  The scale of exploitation is unparalleled in human history.  But don't worry because more industry and technology will save us.

I Took my son on a trip to the zoo
There was so much for us to see and do
    One roar from the lion
    My son started crying
The trip was over I was scared to

The Gods' Family Tree

An Egyptian I never could be,
but since reading of their history,
in limerick form
I now write to inform
my friends of the Gods’ family tree.

From “Waters of Chaos” came Nun,
the only God under the sun.
The first piece of ground
rose up as a mound.
Hun stood there and coughed up a son!

Hun spat out the God of Air, Shu,
and he spat out a cute goddess too.
Tefnut was her name.
Moisture was her fame.
She and Shu beget children - two!

Their son was named Geb; the girl, Nut.
I’m not sure how to say her name, but
I sure like to say
Goddess Sky’s name the way
that rhymes with the famous King Tut.

When he laughed, the son Geb, “God of Earth,”
made the earth shake beneath his great girth.
I think Geb is busy
in modern days, for he
quakes often, for he’s fond of mirth!

For the tale to proceed, there ensued
some more incest, and not to be crude,
Nut, the Goddess of Sky,
got it on with the guy,
King of Earth, and they had a big brood.

There came forth from their coupling,
Queen Isis and a new Earth King,
Osiris, who was
a good king because
he ruled all rebirth, a great thing!

One son, against harmony, came
to kill Osiris, and his name
was Seth; once again
like the story of Cain -
an envious brother to blame.

But Seth got his just desserts when,
having married his Mom Isis, then
he was killed by HIS son,
named Horus, who won
the throne, and so “good” ruled again.

From Seshat to Sekmet to Rah,
Gods were worshipped by ancients with awe.
You’d have worshipped them too
had you been born to do
your poems on papyrus. Ha ha.

A Fathers Desire

Their well being covers every corner of his conscience
caring for them is his default so beyond science
even when he seems wicked
he’d not mind to go naked
for love in their life to have a high rate of prevalence.

The only girl

Hey Son, I wrote this to warn you
In your whole life, many girls are coming through 
You might have only girl to love her much over
But you have to remember that do not hurt your mother
She is my only girl too...

Pickle Pucker

I once gave my toddler a pickle
I bribed him with a shiny nickel
He took a big bite
And to my delight
His puckered face gave me a tickle

I read a rhyme and I was so vexed
I feel that Old Mother Goose was hexed,
Didn't condemn this thief
And this brought me grief,
But he got beat up by Old Man Tex.

Tom the Piper's son stole pig and ran
This little boy acts like a big man,
Protective services
Moves him from premises,
Now the Piper smokes all that he can.

He sent his son Tom to go and steal
I wouldn't mind if 'twas for a meal,
But we all knew that it
Was to support his habit,
I think he should be locked up for real.

22-year-old Deal Breaker

He proposed, wanted me to be his wife
But I knew his son would cause too much strife
     A grown man with no goals
     His father he controls
I gently said, “No, I want a good life.”

In bed he lies, playing video games
“No work to be found,” this lazy son claims
     Blames the economy
     Acts irresponsibly
Sticks to his avatars; I use friends’ names

Thus, Fate Avengeth

Henry VIII desireth an heir.
Wife after wife, nary son hath wives bourne.
Thusly, he cut off each head.
Findeth a new wife instead.
His sole son hath been born from an affair.

In A Sea Of Goldfish

In a sea of goldfish sat a Bryce
He looked around, said, "Hey, this is nice!"
We fed him a bit more
He threw most to the floor
Then we gave him a bath once or twice

To borrow there are rules to be checked
to show your father respect
        You should be real polite
        which would only be right
and to ask his ok is  correct.

But his son ignored that tradition
Used the car on his own volition
        When involved in a wreck
        He replied what the heck
I’d rather have forgiveness than permission!

His son learned the hard way that day
That’s all that I need to say
        He’s one of the fools
        Who won’t follow the rules
In the long run it's him that will pay.

Made all the girls pregnant except for one

Tom Tom the Piper's Son

Tom Tom was the son of a piper
But here’s where the story gets riper

I met Peter for a blind date His bad habits I REALLY hate He sat picking his nose Finding fluff from his toes Then both of these items he ate! His mother accompanied us … She’d sat next to me on the bus Told me Peter was ‘pure’ And to be doubly sure She’d tied up his balls in a truss! Peter was a prolific farter So our date I deemed a non-starter The wind from his tush Came out in a rush I went home as I’m not a martyr! Fiction write BUT I did go out with a guy who wanted to bring his mother with us when we went on honeymoon ….needless to say I didn’t marry him!

Girl From Wheeling

There was a young lady from Wheeling
West Virginia, that is
Who had a peculiar feeling that
Her boyfriend Jack was cheating

She took it to his Mom
“Mom” she said, “your son Jack
Is really pissing me off.  
I'm ready to hit the ceiling.”

“Ya know,” Mom said, “You crack me up.
I'm tickled he goes to your head
He irritates me the same way about you
So I tell him to stay unwed.”

So Mom was the other woman
The young lady from Wheeling suspected
So she lay on her back and considered Mom amd Jack
“I would like to see them dissected!”

Twin Bullets

            My teenage son proudly wears a Che Guevarra beret

         and belts out liberation songs from Bob Marley's reggae,

                                       as he fixes the sink

                                     I hum along and think:

           freedom, duty, twin bullets in life's most deadly roulette!

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

Leonhard Euler once said to his son

Leonhard Euler once said to his son,
“Hey kid, c’mere, look what I’ve done!
     The exponential of pi,
     First multiplied by i,
Exactly equates to minus one.

Jimerick: His Little Black Book

Jim claimed that his little black book
Had names of the girls he could hook
But from cover to cover
There was only his mother
As I found when I had a good look.
