Premium Member If I was a Rocky Mountain Goat
If I was a Rocky Mountain Goat
I would wear a furry overcoat.
I would walk rocks
Ignore all clocks
And jump off cliffs onto river boats.

Premium Member I have Vitamin C in Droves
British found oodles of Vitamin C
In a place unknown by you and me.

Premium Member Big Bird
A famous TV star is called 'Big Bird'
At Thanksgiving he's at a loss for words --
   His fellow birds are eaten
   Down is his spirit beaten --
What eight-foot canary is not absurd?

But they act on all sporting calls...Read More

Almost a Limerick

Ladies, here’s advice I simply can’t
hold back, and conscience says I shan’t:
If you plan to don your “tini”
frame in a racy, hot bikini,
be aware: a strip of cloth that scant
wasn’t designed for the overabundant....Read More

Premium Member Waiting Rooms


Waiting rooms are the worst by far
Avoiding the stares of others we stare at the floor
So uncomfortable
Others also vulnerable
Some are sweating bullets, others snore

You must be careful if you really don't know
Where you're going cuz you might miss the show

Laughed so hard, peed your panties, hope it don't snow

Premium Member Wait A Second


There are 31,556,926 seconds in a day
So when we say, “wait a second” here's what we're saying
In actual time
It's time to dine 
Dinner will be here in 1/31,556,926th of a day, okay?

Boggy
Chained down in time for a while
Not one to just clown around
No place for my off-world style
Just got to keep writing it down

Been washed in my tears long enough to keep soggy 
Just enough to see through what appears to...Read More

Whose verses often veered t’word a pun,
He suffered the asthma,
Had anemic plasma,
So paper and ink summed up his fun

We Went to Each Event
We Went to Each Event

By God we were sent to each event;
Had enjoyed it when there we went,
And map read;
To Him lead,
After He explained what this meant.

We Vowed To See a Shroud
We Vowed To See a Shroud

What we vowed was to see a shroud;
It once had been among a big crowd;
Body cover;
Birds hover;
Now found floating in a nebulas cloud.

A basset hound puppy to revere
With a Rudolph nose

Illness Then Loneliness and Stillness
Illness Then Loneliness and Stillness

Seemed so sick from  a severe illness,
While she would suffer with loneliness,
And off carried;
In grave buried;
Died and what remained was stillness.

Choir Great Music Made
Choir Great Music Made

Together choir great music made,
While Jesus in His cradle had laid;
Animals in a flock,
Along with live stock,
And went to barn where he stayed.

Star can clearly be seen in the sky,
After being there it would pass by;

Jesus In Cradle Laid

Together choir great music made,
While Jesus in His cradle had laid;
Fast or slow,
Sing a solo,
Or in harmony had been singing.
