Premium Member I ROAM

I‘m a pigeon
Free in flight
Circling blue skies up above
Somewhere in the world
Makes no difference to me
Taking no particular pride
Whether I hover over Paris
Rainforest of Brazil
Sunset at the Eiffel Tower
Las Vegas or Bombay
I find beauty everywhere I go
Not particularly vain or...Read More

Griselda's Revenge
We had a garden gnome named Griselda
the bane of our small bungalow
she was nasty and mean, at times quite obscene
the worst that you ever could know!

Her garden mate, Gregor, had feared her
but one day he mustered the nerve

Premium Member The City Zoo
A cute gentile pig in New York
plays hopscotch over turtle hurdles
which eased her bunny
until a smack talking turkey announced,
'Did you hear how the skunks in bombay
lost a spelling bee - to an
artistic aardvark named clark?'

Around her, muttering mosquitoes
Dear teddy bear,...Read More

Protected from hunting both night and day

To pass
While i sit
In this Damp rotten cave
The cliffs to high
I tried
In vain
Low tide
Lets me see
For a time
Before breaking waves
Force me 
How many years
I've spent
In this darkness
This dampness
This rotten cave
No seaman
Should suffer
This torturest sentence
I know i am long dead
As the ships...Read More

Banned seventeen patients one day
They all had Delhi belly ...
Waiting room got so smelly

If I had a star each time you brightened my days
I'd have a galaxy at hand like a universal buffet
Making me overexcite
To my taste bud's delight
The limit of the universe is bigger than Bombay

The fault most likely comes from animal DNA

Lemme breathe smoke free air, okay

Premium Member They walk amongst us
They walk amongst us, but in silent ways,
spreading peace and love without any praise.
When thunder roars and lightning strikes in rain
they watch over us, healing bleeding pain.

Yet we do not see their celestial light,

No-One is Perfect

He wrote poor lyrics and never got sung, 
His lengthy words were a farce
They came out of his arse,
Smelling like stagnate garbage of bung.

Cheers to my mother I’ll share a tale,
After a swig of lime-soaked gin,
To which I’ll use the drink to avail,
Words worthy of an eyesight’s spin:

Whose crown was her very cerise hair,
Which pours from...Read More

Two Pairs of Shoes
Two Pair of Shoes

My Loafers wandered out one day
when I (too lazy) chose to stay

one evening in the Spring

They came upon a pair of Heels

composed of skin from river eels,

Beware the Coming of the Minx
She’s not averse to forty winks
But afterwards she wakes and blinks
And to her privy corner slinks

As enigmatic as the Sphinx
She sits atop her tray and thinks
Up some mischievous new high jinks

The sound of Mum preparing drinks
Dad washing dishes in the...Read More

A Beautiful Sailing Ship

Great white sheets spread before Auster's wind seem to fly.
She sails ocean rout's course coming from East Indies.

High top-gallants with main-royals full blown in sky.
