I brought some
Wacky lacky
From the store
But it tasted like
Tacky sacky
And a bore
The bore tasted
Like stinky linky
So, I threw it out
But along came
Backy racky and
Grabbed kacky stacky
and then flew off

Premium Member Nosey not me but
Well you know me
I’ve never been one to nosey
But I just happen to be stood by the window
Behind the net curtains
With a pair of binoculars in my hand
I heard a lot of noise from number 42
Across the road
They are unloading...Read More

at the end of the bed naked as if 
they had just sprouted from my ankles.

I rarely give thought to my feet, 
much less the feet of others, aesthetically, I mean,

Premium Member Shop Until You Drop
I have had enough
Of traipsing around the shops
Looking at all the stuff
Stuff is what I call it
I don't know how else
That describes the tacky rubbish
That adorns every shelf
Where is the Christmas spirit
And the festive cheer
All I heard were moans and...Read More

Premium Member The Fashion Police
This is not just a poem
but more of a point of view.
So, go ahead and nod
when you hear something
that rings true.
You've always wanted
to call the fashion police.
Now you can!
When your shocked

So many things come to mind,

Premium Member Comatose
In an irrevocable warp speed instant, 
my head collided into the likeness of drying tar, 
absorbing each horrid layer of concrete. 
That pitch-black, tacky substance covered my body, 
so that I was trapped, sightless, into immobility. 

With pounding pain, like...Read More

Remember Only This
By the gloating rocks once its refuge,
The sun wallows in scarlet rages;
Glovers at the ticky-tacky cages,
Who feel naught of the coming deluge
From the lurching stream that knows no rest.

Each ripple is a Mont Blanc unsung
With snow-hunches grown out of dark...Read More

Peg's Halloween Party
Last Halloween was scary
with evil brewing strong
when Peggy planned a party
and things went off all wrong

In tatty robe, her hair awry
she slaved all day with care
her neighborhood to satisfy
with an elegant affair

Fine treats she baked and broiled
and decorated in detail
until...Read More

Death By Office
The maddening click of key strokes
The shrilling of the phones
The crunch of crumbling paper balls
Slices to the bone
The dull humming of the copier
Four million paper clips
The smell of tacky wite out 
So sick of all of it
It's like sitting in...Read More

Tacky Tastes

My neighbor’s tastes are tacky,
I really think the lady’s whacky.
It’s the toilet tissue she buys,
it would scandalize a pastor’s eyes.
(Thank God she’s no church-goer,
they’d burn her as a blasphemer!)
Italicized on two-ply sheets
read verses from Ecclesiastes,
replete with number and chapter,
to edify...Read More

Funky Penguin

A funky penguin stated,
my tux is stupidly outdated,
I want a look that’s tacky,
gaudy, loud, and whacky.

I look too diplomatic,
in a formal dinner straitjacket.
Black and white is so passé,
it’s for fuddy-duddies, I say.

I want something glitzy,
to dazzle other penguins dizzy;
something flashy...Read More

Sit unflinching in a slumbered pose
each exhaled breath like a moor's mist,
a rhythmic pulse like a metronome 
on the thin temples throb 
like a snare drum's distant beat
but closer...much closer.

Yet watch the candle flame's heat,
curving and caressing the air
like a...Read More

I heard there is a party
I heard it's wild and crazy
Adventurous and funky
Not at all boring or tacky
This makes me happy
As I can dress skimpy and naughty 
Colorful and attractive
Being social and all active
I heard there is a gathering
An occasion...Read More

Sweet Earth
How many more springs will be granted.
Springs where seeds and flowers are planted.
How long will the filthy rain sustain the vigor
Of tender shoots so green and innocently eager.

We spew out human seed to take root on earth,

Being Bad
I don't cuss or smoke,
And I don't chew "tabakky";
I don't sniff or dip snuff,
Ugh! That stuff is just tacky;
I only drink on occasion,
Like at sundown and such;
I rarely go to casinos
Or play the lottery much;
I've never had to pay child...Read More

Christmas Trees
They sparkle and glisten, making an average tree great,
With reds, blues, and yellows, and decorations first rate.

Some have all white lights, which look pretty classy,
And others are color lights, which some say are tacky.

I love them all, for they represent...Read More

Premium Member Words on the Go
Words can be whimsical, a merry-go-round
They run in a circle, they go up and down
They play hide-and-seek until they are found
Look how quickly the little ones grow!

Words can seduce like a scandalous dance
They'll perplex the complex, if given a chance
They're...Read More

Premium Member What Is Your Temperature
What is your temperature?
The doctor asked
During an ordinary visit.
I left the examining room
And walked through 
My palace
Skin and hair
Nails and tissue,
75 years of growth.
Ivy wild 
as a Venus flytrap
Snaring an insect.
Tendrils curl and cover
Cages of ribs
Prisons of my own making,
Arid...Read More
