There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
No one was to tease       
That everyone agreed
As she was the daughter of Herman Munster

Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Jewel There!!
Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely jewel there,
Jewels like her are something rare...
She can't  disguise it,
Ruby's red eyes show "blues" in it,

Fred, you wanna add the refrain?
Don't worry about Herman & pals-
They're all hermit crabs now-a-days.

Premium Member One More Thing
one more thing the guy said
she has no hair
herman was stunned.

she doesn’t believe in it.
she thinks it makes women vain.
she shaves her off.  Okay, Herman says.

not wanting to meet her at all.
wishing he had not agreed to a blind date
until he sees her eyes.
kindest hazel he has ever seen....

I Turn In Silence
Poem inspired by Dutch Poet, Herman Gorter

"ever royal and keen"
this shadowed walk
sends an obscene scene
as the world balks

echoing unending
showers of insolence
with no mending
of man's dissidence

I arise silently,
turn in quietude
from the violently
impudent multitude

Poem inspired by Dutch Poet, Herman Gorter

Goodbye Gwynne
(Dedicated to Fred Gwynne who died July 2, 1993. He starred as Herman 

You had bolts in your neck and a flat head.
Your skin was green and you were undead.
When people saw you, they screamed and ran.
You were very funny and you were also a scary man.
I loved to see you frighten people and make them flee.
But sadly the world lost you in July of 1993....

Those who others wives eye
Those who others wives eye
Aren't ready to say 'why'?:
When they do,package 'lie'
They give colourful dress
And remember to press:
"Has got nose of Grandma,
Who loved to read prima!"

They soonest away fly,
Who would others'wives eye:
No other option try,
If it'd end up in a mess,
Down drag him more or less;
Herman out for long stress...

A full stop not comma
To acts flawed by karma.

Premium Member Frankenstein
Abused and abandoned it's so clear 
From the streets he did appear
Obvious, it's trust that cower him in fear
Herman no Frankenstein's monster is he
Just a puppy with wants and needs
Gentle this little giant, causing hearts to bleed
Black eyes of ebony from which his soul you can see
As like fleece his golden hair matted and snarled everywhere
Fond over is he by those with empathy
Lucky, was I when he chose me...

Premium Member Cyclical Dance of the Cousins
Dorrie Ann left Herman again.
It happens on a cyclical schedule.
October, January, April and July.
A quad-yearly thing.
We cousins take her in.
Knowing in a day or two Herman will show up.
Sweet, with candies and maybe flowers.
He will sweet talk her back home
because he is tired of frozen food.
Dorrie Ann could be annoying after the
second day but none of us know this because
Herman’s pattern is cyclical too.

Premium Member Mourning the Passing of Herman Wouk
An old-fashioned modern Jew
  He was brilliant, unique
Weaving the strands of tradition
  Into best-selling novels sleek 

A Navy man, aboard a WW2 mine-sweep
  Mr. Wouk loved letters, his country, and
Talmudic wisdom, from which his works drew deep

 Herman Wouk, the prolific novelist and
 lifelong student of the Talmud, has 
 passed on to his Maker today, at the
 tender age of 103.  May he rest in peace...

Premium Member Not A Good Idea
Not a good idea, a drive down to the beach
Grandpa's eyes hurt because of the light 
Some passers by looked and nearly died of fright
Eddie responded' with a blood curdling screech
They get to the beach Eddie wants ice cream
Herman goes to pay the girl let's out a scream
Not a good idea, a drive down to the beach.

Written 7th October 2019.
