Limerick by Tom

By nationality little Liam was a Swede,
He quickly learned if he’d beg and plead.
He’d get more candy,
and that was dandy,
But his undoing was a sweet tooth’s greed.

Of Slimy Cucumbers and a Luscious Swede
Some matters are subject to laws;
some others happen at random.
'De gustibus' a Latin tag goes,
non est disputandum.'
(Good time there's never to waste
on arguing long about taste).

So I relish radishes merrily;
I savour long sticks of celery.
The fruits of the earth are...Read More

A very young Swede
felt a need
to tell the world the truth.
Less today
and gone tomorrow,
it's very plain to see.
Ice caps melt,
polar bears starve
and plastic
we now eat.
Now Greta
may seem
a bit too tough
but it's exactly
what we need,
a cold hard slap
of reality
of nationality
may cause us

Hockey Time

		You know that summertime is gone
		when a chill is in the air
		when snow is in the forecast
		and hockey sticks appear
		when kids with toques and earmuffs
		show up on every street
		stick-handling wayward tennis balls
		on tar and on concrete
		when flags of northern nations...Read More

Elsa was a tall lovely Swede
Cross-eyed and knock-kneed    
Million-dollar smile all agreed
Flashing her favourite dress made of tweed
A chain at her neck with a simple bead

Loving kindness was her creed
Drenched in thoughtfulness her every deed
The biggest heart...Read More

A Swede, A Dane and Two Norwegians
Everyone who has money
should drop it in a vat and
anyone who needs money

should take what they need

Norwegians tell Fred, also an

economist who flew in from Yale.
After a three-day seminar in the
Antarctic, the four...Read More

Learning root at school
The square root of sixteen is four
The veg root of turnip is swede
The tooth root of dentist is pain
The route we must take is misspelled
The root of each line is a "the"

Monkey and Donkeys Tea.

Go ask the monkey what's for tea
and donkey, what he likes to drink?

Narna's on bread with red juice, donkey said
you'll find it all by the sink.
with apples and carrots, turnip and swede
that's all we have, I think.

That's...Read More

The Race Thing 
My ignorance was total, xenophobia in Africa; no, not
white people against black but black on black.
One sided I thought, mostly reading western history
that xenophobia was white against coloured people.
No I’m not shocked if surprised and I do...Read More

Love a pie day

With succulent pastry which couldn't be thinner

Making this pie a lip smacking tasty one

Such lovely shapes and colours, they are so bright and gay
I always use them in my cooking
Or eat then raw when no one is looking

Mum's Christmas Dinner
She stays awake for hours, cutting Xs in the sprouts,
Then peels all the tatties, a ton or thereabouts,
Slicing and dicing parsnips is next up in the plan,
Chops up carrots and a swede, and put them in a pan,
Mixes up her...Read More

The glass shades hang on chains
A thin glowing light begins to fill
Creating shadows in the room
Across the pictures on the wall
Weddings of children flown

The needles click against the clock
Your concentration is complete
Lips deployed to...Read More

I  shudder to think about the way 
Some  vegetables are  abused every day -
With physical  and psychological  slights
In gross violation of their vegetable rights.

I Speak In Tongues!! (yes, true!)
When I worked, selling furniture, much expensive, as a Store Manager/Salesman-
(really, the "Manager" title was euphemistic)...
It was easy to get bored....
You can sit in the showroom
for some hours,
And see no one at all...
So when some poor person
did come in...
I tended...Read More
