Spinning lies which you spew
The rubber walls are calling you
Marbles left, you have but few...

which was an ignorant thing to do.
Seldom did he get his way
except that there came a day
he found a farmer needing a ewe....

Timmy, a cute little shrew,
Wrote limericks smutty and blue,
His rhymes were not 'Chic'
But a bit 'tongue in cheek
That he sent to some poets he knew....

There once was a young man from Rangou
Whose wife was a horrible shrew
He beat on her head
Until she was dead
He now lives in Cell thirty-two

Talk talk talk
Said the stork

I can not hear you
Said the shrew

Oh shut up
Said the pup

Can you not see
Said the bee

Do you not feel
Said the eel

Bad communication
Leads to disorientation...

My dearest Daisy Dormouse,
will you invite me in for tea?
I seek your hand in Marriage,
what will your answer be?
Dear Sir, my heart you flatter,
but I cannot marry you,
Mother say’s you’re a Rat
and betrothed to Chantelle Shrew.

 William Wordsworth
England was the place of his birth
He got inspired and became quite thrilled
When he saw a host of golden Daffodils

William Shakespeare
Had great poetic flair
He wrote several plays too
Like Macbeth, King Lear, And The Taming of the Shrew...

Debt of Narcissus
now behold, self-loving self-beholder

           your self-seen self perfection

                     cracked mirror's reflection

but  outside screams a pettifogging shrew

            mad landlady curses you

                      your rent long overdue!...

A dashing, young field mouse
Once married a shrew,
And they set up housekeeping
In an old tennis shoe.
When their babies were born--
Not shrews and not mice--
They were the proud parents
Of a shoe full of shrice.

The Family Man
There was a man, calm and collected
With a kid, a dog and wife well connected;
He was a brother, a father, a man
And like any other he too was defected

A family man loved and well to do
But he had a problem, he lived in his shoe;
He would run and meet up a shrew
Greet hello the way lovers do...

Premium Member Shrewdness Of The Shrew
The shrewdness of the shrew
Out of place on her
Would better be placed 
Upon a gentle woman
Of genteel character

This shrew of a woman
Abused by a man in her childhood
Angry all the time
Doesn't even know why herself
The only thing she knows 
Is she is angry at this man

In the process of thought........

Tea for Two
she spoke of two in metaphor
consequence and heretofore
laced her pouring bawdy brew
with a sweetened blinding cue

she hypnotized 
dancing emerald eyes
trapped me with her wily guise  

we drank a tepid tea for two
concocted by a crafty shrew
sweaty salty we both withdrew
bidding a sweet adieu

A Little Girl Lost
As i sit along the shore

i think..

I'm not a little girl anymore..

How could you be so mean?

There's alot of things you've not yet seen.

I'm always all alone

though it may no have shown.

It's all so dark and scary,

like tom chasing jerry.

I don't know what to say or do,

It's like i'm just a shrew...

Premium Member Magpie and Crow Love
Raymond Magpie fell in love with a crow.
When she was around, he was a glow.
It cannot be true!
Said Mother Prue.
I will bring him home by his big toe.

So she did what she said she was going to do.
She dragged Raymond Magpie by his left shoe.
There he stays
Pinning his days
Wishing his mama was not a racist shrew.

Words of Wisdom
When I saw your contest 
"speaketh wisdom",  it said
I could not think of one thing
To enter in my head 

I couldn't boast I knew it all
Nor tell others what to do
I musn't fall out laughing
Not coming from a shrew! 

Instead I'll give advice
from a cyber point of view
If you think this summer's hot
Be good til life is through!...

I loathe you,
Worthless shrew,
You make me sick,
Lying to all just to tick,
Everything you are is nothing,
Just pretending to be something,
You shouldn't dream,
For all you create is steam,
Your hopes are for naught,
It all ending in rot,
Pathetic child,
Don't you think it's wild,
I hate what I see,
Too bad what I'm looking at is me....
