Twisted Goose Goes Cuckoo for Haiku

For P.D's "Going Haiku Crazy" Contest

 
How Many?

going to St. Ives
met folks on that smelly bus
more than I could count

Just Sleep Walking?

Wee Willy Winky
caught outside a boy’s window
in a night garment

Got Wool?

naked in the lane
three bags-full of wool sheared off
baa baa black sheep fleeced

She Didn’t Know What to Do!

Kids’ cries from inside -
outside an old woman’s shoe
child welfare people

Clean Your Plate!

Licking their plates clean
Jack Sprat and wife do their part. . .
kids starve in China

The Treacherous Hill

pail of spilled water
Jill’s body sprawled over Jack’s
one big bloody mess

What a Ding Dong

good deed for the day
boy scout Tommy Stout by well. . . 
scratches on his arm

Not Even a Bone

old Mother Hubbard
Social Security cut
dog needs a new home

Yellow Georgie

victims of Porgie 
confront him in the playground
his true color shows

The Original Blonde

Bo peep loses sheep
birth of a new tradition. . . 
blonde jokes being told

The Schemer

some spilled curds and whey
spider near a fallen chair
supping happily

Making the Best. . . 

Humpty takes a spill
the whole army can’t fix him
omelets for lunch

Baby Catches On

the church and steeple
and now you show me people?
those are just fingers!

They Say He Couldn’t Keep Her!

gossip in the town
pumpkin shell big as a house. .  
where is Peter’s wife?

Bye, Hushed Baby

the sound of wind’s rush
baby’s cries abruptly hushed
broken branch on ground

*I'm choosing this series of haiku for several reasons.
First, it's the only post I made named "Twisted" so it
is an obvious choice. Second, I do have other poems
I consider a bit twisted, but, I simply cannot
remember the titles of some of these really old poems
to look for them.  Finally, this series was inspired by 
a long ago contest of PD's in which I got the idea
to take nursery rhymes and twist them,  and so 
I'm reviving this series which can no longer be
viewed by anybody here unless it's in a contest!

A WOMAN

A woman is the greatest of all contradiction;
She is an angel in truth and a demon in fiction.

She is afraid of a cockroach, she will scream at 
a mouse but she will tackle a man as big as a house.

She will take him for better, she will take him for worse
She will split his head open and then be his nurse.

And when he is well and can get out of bed, she will 
pick up a pot and throw at his head.

She is faithful, deceitful, keen-sighted and blind;
She is crafty, she is simple, she is cruel and kind.

She will lift up a man and she will cast him down;
She will make him a king and she will make him a clown.

You fancy she is this but you find out she is that,
For she will play like a kitten and bite like a cat.

In the morning she will but in the evening she wont
and when you are always expecting she does she don't.

Shit happens

Coming from out of nowhere 
somewhere in space
somewhere above 
Somewhere my love
Running and running I was
Those son of a guns
Would pop me in my head
Pop pop pop on my face
Splat spla splat
Trying to dodge them
But to no avail
**** happens I guess 
They were streaming down 
millions of them
Some as big as a house
Some tiny itsy-bitsy ones
Couldn't even see the sun shine
Clouds people or :-) Faces

I was the marathon man
I ran,ran and ran for cover
But they were everywhere
Snowflakes got bigger and bigger
I kept running uphill downhill
Uptown downtown Chinatown too
And to my surprise came a large snowball
Bigger than life itself Rolled side-by-side
Parallel to me it did 

Soon was consumed by all this snow
Sucked up by this larger than life snowball
Rolling by the countryside 
In speeds of up to 65
And continuing on this journey
 never-ending
Seemed time had stood still
Being a wayward vagabond
And adventurer at heart
Although a prisoner I didn't mind
In spite of the path that was chosen
Before being born
In All the confusion what I miss most was my girl
Sweet Maggie May
As I would call ,in the sweet tender moments
That only Shakespeare would write about
And Rembrandt paint..

With all the thoughts on my Maggie May
Seems the cold didn't bother me at all
When suddenly seeing this other ball
Even larger than my own
Roll along side
To my amazement there was someone in it
a person like myself
Woopie woopie dandelions
I can't Believe it
Happy :-) At a thought of having someone 
so near wow
We finally came to a halt 
In the frozen tundra below
Knowing that years and years 
had passed me by
Looking across the other side
Gazing at the other ball of snow white
To see this other person a prisoner like myself
Put a smile to my face and jumpstart to my heart
It was totally electrifying
I wasn't alone anymore
Me Maggie May and Those big balls
Here comes the sun..

It Starts

She could not understand what I was saying.
I was just telling her about my summer vacation.
Our annual family motor tour.

Mountains with snow that stops where the clouds begin
Pines that climb the mountain 
until the air is so thin they can no longer grow.

Snow melting from the peaks
becoming ribbons of liquid ice, 
tumbling faster and faster
polishing rocks into pebbles
until the stream becomes a river 
flowing with deep silent power to the sea.

Deer in the forest and horses on the trails.
Eagles dancing on the thin fresh air.
Rocks as big as a house.

Puzzlement covered her face,
Disbelief in the slant of her eyes.

I was just as puzzled. 
Had she never been there? 
Could she have never seen a mountain? 
Had she never been out of town? 
Was that possible?

I went home - still pondering
Realizing how fortunate am I.

I changed my words into a picture 
so she could understand.
Her eyes grew so big.

She was amazed at what she saw.
I was amazed at her reaction.

I brought her a new world
Could I do it again?
I drew another picture, and another, and another ...

I have never stopped being amazed.


Note: This is a true story. We were ten.

As Big As Your Eye



Ever seen a mouse As big as a house Or a fly as big as your eye How bout a bee With a sunburned knee Or a turkey that sniffles and cries What about a chicken Wearing green mittens Or a kangaroo singing the blues An elephant with hands Doing hand stands Or a hippo wearing green shoes Here's a few more A gold fish that roars Or a cat with a pink feathered hat A pet cockatoo Named Bartholomew Or a sensitive tiger named Matt Or finally a goat Sailing a boat With a pipe sticking out of his gob A squirrel with a cold And a tooth made of gold Or a hamster who's first name is Bob © Jack Ellison 2015

Give Me More And More

~Give More And More~
(Rhyme)


The more around I see
The more and more I want I say
Give me more and more
Give me more now I say

I don't really care at all
You can make it small or tall
Give me more today I say
Give me more and more to play

The more I see the more I want.
Give me more and more don't say you can't
I don't really care at all
It can be big as a house or tall as a wall

Give me a ladder big and as tall
Give it to me to climb that tall wall
I don't really care anymore if I fall
Anything is better than none at all

The more and more I want and I say
The more and more I see and I do
Give me more and more for today
Give me more to have and play

Give me more and more to hold and play
Give it to me small or tall I say
I don't really care if it is small as an ant
Or if it is big and mean as my aunt

Give me more and more today I say
Give it to me as high as the sky
Give it to me yellow red or blue
Give me more and more today to play

Make it big or small
Make it small or tall
Make it hairy or bold
Give it to me quick as you're told

Give me more and more I say
Give me more and more today
I don't really care if you don't want
I don't really care if you can't

Give me more and more as the sky
Give me more and more just as high
Make it big as a house
Or make it small as a mouse

Give me more and more to see with my eyes
Give me more and more to hold and play
Make it small or tall
Anything is better than none at all

Give me more and more I say
Give it to me as tall as the sky
Give me a ladder as big and tall
Give it to me to climb that wall.

Just from a very young child's perspective of thinking sometimes, we know how kids are at times, lol...Though, this is just a children's poem and from a innocent child's
 point of view :)..

As Big As Your Eye

Ever seen a mouse
As big as a house
Or a fly as big as your eye
How bout a bee
With a sunburned knee
Or a turkey that sniffles and cries

What about a chicken
Wearing green mittens
Or an kangaroo singing the blues 
An elephant with hands
Doing hand stands
Or a hippo wearing green shoes

Here's a few more
A gold fish that roars
Or a cat with a pink feathered hat
A pet cockatoo
Named Bartholomew
Or a sensitive tiger named Matt

Or finally a goat
Sailing a boat
With a pipe sticking out of his gob
A squirrel with a cold
And a tooth made of gold
Or a hamster who's first name is Bob

The Eighth Wonder Of The World. ( Motion Pictures.)

" Scream, Ann, scream! Scream like you've never screamed before!"
    
     I saw their eyes, wide like turkey eggs
     for his bombast had provided us sneers.
     Just what is it he expects her to see
     that would leave her shaking, in tears?

 " Have any of you ever heard of..Kong?"

    There it is! This is it! The man's a fool!
    He's off for a film so they'll be thrilled!
    This ship is a tramp, not proper or trim.
    He'll wind up getting all of us killed.
   
   " All hands on Deck! All Hands on Deck!"

     She's gone! Oh my God! She's gone!
     Now what do we do? Hand out the guns!
     Is there enough bullets for them all?
     I still wonder: are we the only ones?

   " Come on! Who's going with me?!!"

     I can't believe the size of it! The size!!
     It's a mirage! It must be a nightmare!
     It's carried her off out in that jungle!
     My hands feel cold. We'd better beware.
   
     I might be lucky. I'm staying behind.
     I  shot it. I know I did!


   " I tell you, skipper, this Kong is as big as a house!"
   
     I slip up by Denhams' side to hear about
     Kong and these dragons and there's more!
     I thought those things were dead and gone
     Suppose one of them comes to this door?

   " Kong's Coming! Kong! Kong!"

     I heard the gong! Oh my God! It's Kong!
     He followed Driscoll and Ann right here.
     We've taken up arms! We've bolted the door!
     I wish I could be somewhere and not here.     

     He's In! He's Loose! Run! Run!
     EXPLOSION! I turn
     Kong stops. He staggers.
     He's down.
     I hear Denham shout:


   " Come On. I Got Him!
     We'll teach him fear! We're millionaires, boys!
     Kong! The EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD!"

     I never slept all those weeks back.
     Gunshots and whips from the hold
     It's a mistake to bring this thing back.
     Denham is foolish and brazen and bold.

     EPILOGUE:
     
     I shipped out right after we docked.
     I pour another shot, look out to the sea.
     The mate just told me the news
     over the wireless:
     Kong is loose in New York.
     I wonder where Denham is...

The Moonie

Moonie It was in the seventies I was out at St George, Playing pool with the locals, and the blacksmith from his forge, I was winning, had a winning streak, But I was getting a bit drunker, So it was time to drive 300 miles, in me Holden, the old clunker, I was on a 200 mile stretch, Black forest all around, Drunk as 40 cats, Glassy eyed, half alkie sorta drowned, I came up the darkened valley, Not a bat or ne’er a sound, Hair jumped up upon me neck, great golden ball, sat on the ground, Big as a house the golden ball, I sobered oh so quick, Just the bloody full moon that’s all, No sign of mean ole Nick, Cos, it was the highway Moonie

Soon To Be

Belly getting as big as a house.
Use to eat like a mouse.
But now eating for two.
Can't wait for day to change a diaper or two.
It be nice to hold you.

Mouse and a bale of hay

You'll never guess what guess what I saw today,
A little mouse eating a bale of hay,
I said, "Mouse, what the heck are you trying to do?"
Mouse said, "What business is it to you?"

I said, "Mouse there is no way you can eat it all."
Because that bale is so big and you are so small.
Mouse said, "You think you are so smart,
I'm going to eat this hay but this is just a start."

"I didn't say I'd eat it all in one day," 
"For this one big bale of hay."
"But I know what I can do."
"I'll finish this hay in day two."

The next day Mouse could barely talk,
Lying on his back for he couldn't walk,
His belly was swollen as big as a house,
All that hay was in that little mouse.

I said, "Mouse, how did you eat all that hay?"
He just had one thing to say,
"It was hard and took all night."
The secret he said was taking small bites!
