His todger he tied with a bow

HE NOSE HOW TO PICK EM
by JAN ALLISON

A Chinese professor from Bowes
used chopsticks when picking his nose
He’s down on his luck 
one chopstick got stuck -
he’s skipping his lunch I suppose!

Hair
Bouncing raven tresses
Velvety elucidated guesses

Smile
Sparkling white gradients
Breath-stealing bright radiance

Lips
Succulent raspberry fruit
Passion's...

by Jacinta Finch
Three schooners of beer,
two bottles of wine,
one Cointreau on ice,

to sooth my sores.

Love me!
Love me!
Someone,
please.
**** me!
I'm...
