Premium Member Tongue In Cheek


Very often write with my tongue in my cheek Strange saying that is, but when I'm at my peak My humour is best Pound away on my chest Like Tarzan, eat bananas and things that go, “eek!”

Shut Up
Too many words you speak
too much left out there

too much tongue in cheek
too much to share

you want to give a peek
you want us to care

you are the gossip leak
then you check your hair

too many words you speak
too much left out there...

It's a gorgeous early summer's day outside What could possibly go wrong 'cept a homicide They don't happen often But it does break the boredom Sad that some soul must pay for our joy to provide UH, tongue in cheek!

Premium Member What's it called
I'm a little confused about my poem
So let me ask you this
If every other ending word is similar
What if it's about a french kiss?

Do I call it a rhyme all of the time
Because of the way we speak
Or should it be about the context
And instead call it tongue in cheek?

Premium Member Mickey Mouse
This is written with tons of tongue  in cheek

   But I loved watching Mickey Mouse each week

      He was my favorite star

         Outshone Donny Duck by far

            A talking mouse ne'er to utter a squeak

Words are easy
Words are cheap
Hard to swallow
With tongue in cheek

A clap for wonder
A clap of praise
Left to wander
An endless maze

Broken promise
Broken trust
Words hid under
Flaky crusts

Crush the honour
Hush the scream
Take the objects
Please leave the dreams.

Alarm Clock
Appreciated morning time friend.
Despised morning time enemy.

Always knowing when to chime in.
Never knowing when to shut up.

Piercing the calm.
Then teasing peace, but only for a short while.

Liking to hear itself speak.
Can't hear myself think.

Alarm clock....
Oh, dreaded alarm clock....

Stuttered speech
Stuttered speech

There was once a man, let’s call him Fitch,
He bought tapes that in sleep Spanish teach,
Tapes skipping during night,
The plan failed to play right,
And his Spanish was a stuttered speech.

"I don't know!" is the current DC speak,

     Said with considerable tongue in cheek!

          Straight talk they are eschewing!

               Don't they know what they're doing?

                    We'd like a lot more truth and less oblique!

A hex on this verse
how could it be worse
tongue in cheek or terse
potion to reverse
a poetic curse

quivered arrows
wingless sparrows
Sphinx and Pharaohs
distant gallows

funnels bend
wordless blend
poems end

contend

My Battle
People often ask me
how I ever stood my ground, 
when trouble just surrounds me
and people push me down.

I say to them (with tongue in cheek)
I'm sure my work's not done.
I may have fought the battle,
But the war is not yet won.

I will always manage
to hold my head up high.
(Even though that enables them
to better see me cry.)...

Which way the tough go
When things get scorched in a parched desert,
Left, but this advice of an expert,
‘The going when gets tough,
‘The tough ah gets going’.
Enough of such false spring,
Enough such stuff to know,
But who’s called such bravado’s bluff?
Who knows which way the tough did go?

Retro
“I’m not old – I’m retro”
Says the sign that looks antique.
I bought it ‘cause I liked 
Its sassy message, tongue-in-cheek.

But really, who embraces old
Or elderly or aged?
Why, even senior can be wrong
When someone’s years are gauged.

So I will stick with retro
‘Cause it sounds so cool and hip.
Come join my Retro club – 
It’s an exclusive membership!

4am
what I’d give to forget.
Recover only
your perfect symmetry, flesh stretched over bones,
fingers woven in and around,
the rise and fall of your chest,
simultaneous with your breath on my neck
and wondering how long could we make this last?
To stay in unison, heart beats beating,
tongue in cheek while not quite sleeping
'cause any worried or wondering words
could wash this all away....

Wordsmithing

Although you may not fully understand
        the logical sense of his poetry,
                  the images he paints or sculpts with words
                            dance with a certain musicality.


                            His flamboyant verse, whimsical wordplay
                  and tongue-in-cheek irony evoke surprise,
        like rays of the glorious, molten sunrise
that will, for the longest second, suffice!...

Silly Season Written: by Miracle Man 8-3-2019 The Democratic debates, Are the Media’s “silly season” This constant Gum beating, Goes beyond the age of reason What makes the media think, To know, the people, have need. Candidates berating one another, While for our vote they plead. With tongue in cheek, They make promises that are token. Believing “Promises are like pie crusts”, Just made to be broken.

To enhance our book’s creation,
we sought your permission
for your poem’s transformation
to a condensed composition.

Not entirely acquiescent
to our last minute request;
you gave your consent
with tongue-in-cheek protest.

There were other Poets
whose heart-prints were cropped.
It’s painful, we know it,
to have feelings lopped.

Your reply touched our hearts
and our funny-bones too;
We can’t wait to impart
our finished work to you.

Jealousy
People think jealousy normal.
I smile with tongue in cheek and say,
Of course, so is a square billiard ball.
This spurs in a well mannered way
A hot topic for discussion.
Firstly, you must be insecure
Thus an unhealthy condition,
Is this not true? And what is more:
An apprehensive frame of mind.
It being responsible for
Its intensity, unconfined,
Prevalence and the least explored.
In a phrase, ignorance is bliss
This is why jealousy exists....

Viagra Beer
Leave it to the Scottish as the royal wedding nears
To unveil their latest, Viagra infused beers
A beer to stir the loins of the newly wedded prince
A beer to shock the royals and make the Queen Mum wince
A beer that’s sure to give the Brits a stiffer upper lip
A beer that makes this Scotland brewer appear a bit more hip
A beer that says “Arise Prince Willy” – “Celebrate Big Willy Style”
A beer best taken “tongue-in-cheek” guaranteed to raise a smile
