Animal cracker soup
  Full of sugar and goop 
Served it to my playgroup
  When one kid let out a whoop 

The animals had started to grow
  They'd filled the insides of each bowl 
In a flash, all...Read More

Premium Member Living the Dream
I’m living the dream;
so grateful am I
for mountains around me,
green grass and blue sky.

Not all are so lucky
to have things they need:
great friends, food, and a home.
Wanting for more leads to greed.

Anarchy
The battle line is drawn.
Beyond the mystery of your power, 
You've laid us down.
In your bid to get in here you promised to build a tower.

On your shoulder do we rest
Till you daily lay us to rest.
We will end the...Read More

Premium Member Crockpot Comfort

Winter is a great time for crockpot recipes
Simmering through the day, bringing comfort food
After a long cold day of getting things done,
Dinner is ready and waiting to enjoy
Crockpot comfort is something to try
As the winter days linger on, going by

Premium Member Predictable Outcome
Living with mom
Feeling loved and protected
Nurtured in every kind of way
 He is predictably helpless 
Never washed a dish
Or loaded a dishwasher
Never held a job 
Or paid a bill
Never dated
No secret why
Mother dies unexpectedly
World falls apart
He is helpless

To the right,
where God's light had shone bright,
Warrior Queen,

Everything put upon my plate is nothing, but; the food of knowledge
Once digested its full life’s lesson is accepted and truly acknowledged

The eggnog is waiting

Toilet Humor Food

Every morning my first chore
is to flush what I ate the night before. 
But here’s a fact that worries me: 
why is it always more in quantity
than all the food piled on my plate? 
That’s when I begin to speculate

Choose Your News
I don't choose to watch the news
When it's read on the telly
Mostly bad, sometimes sad
It turns my legs to jelly

Has the world gone to "pot"?
Is there no consolation
Do we expect too much
From an un-united nation

Loss of respect

On the day before Christmas
I was shopping in town
just hopping and bopping
and chasing gifts down

With toys for the kiddies
and gifts for my wife
not a care in the world
Just enjoying my life

When suddenly the mall
erupted in clatter
heard someone scream
then heard the...Read More

Dark

dews saliva’s soft,
peppering down upon
freshly planted garden seeds;
tiny hair like roots digging deep,
searching for nutrients in the soil;
finding food and drink, the party begins.

Premium Member If laundry be the food of love
If laundry be the food of love
then my love’s food is abundant,
crammed into its glutted mouth
with potions drear and pungent.

If laundry be the food of love
then I am served with plenty.
May ketchup pour on shirts galore
so my platter’s never empty.

Smell the cinnamon,

merry molars
