Webbed lip toadies,

stinks of foul breath duplicity
For they do do double dip in
toilet ponds...Read More

Cat eyes Categories: burlesque, animal, Form: Free verse
I wonder why
People use their bright black eyes
To glimpse the dim corner

why they keep crying on that mahogany desk?
Are they an actor of burlesque?
Or they only act as a deterrent
Human-being is so...
Difficult to understand...Read More

Try not to freak, but...Read More
Pippa Passes Out Categories: birth, humor, parody, Form: Burlesque
That poor dear can't sing -
This place is a yawn -
Fawning old cretins
With moustaches twirled,

Sod-all since seven -
What's wrong with the world?!
Apologies to Robert Browning...Read More

she pips in fear for lateness like her peers,
hauteur cloaked with reticence,
her-boo-boo-vague, though walled around and palpable

Bravado of naughtiness in candour yet tacit
“Free me to free me”, rants in melancholy
as ignorance upsets sorts...Read More

will be wearing suits and...Read More

Horse Lovers Emergency Categories: animal, Form: Burlesque

‘We are head over heels obsessed,

Do a lot of begging for a little...Read More

And it now looks more like a...Read More

The shadowy, nightmarish silhouette imp
