P.U. – SoCS

stream of consciousness Saturday

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

 

The stinky skunk tried to spray

The dog tried to getaway

But she was a little slow

as she’d just been spayed

Sadly her stitches did splay

Men in Pots – #FFFC

The following silly poem was written in response to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.

Plant a man

Watch him grow

Does he grow fast

or does he grow slow

A vegetarian …

I’d say so

Look at his face, he looks like a grump

I would too with those bumps

Horns on his head holding up trees

Pull off a leaf and he will sneeze

He sits all day inside his pot

He’d better take care before he rots. 

 

 

 

 

 

The End of Something Great

It is with great sadness that Chelsea has decided to discontinue the weekly terrible poetry contest. So today I sat down and wrote the following bunches of silliness for The Final Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest.

Holy moly chicken man

All I want is a grand

I will be your friend for a long time

Until of course, I lose my mind

hearts

Oh my goodness

Oh my gosh

I would love some mackintosh

As I’m as hungry as a bear

Look at my cute underwear

hearts

There is a moose upon my roof

Trying to catch a silly goose

There’s a dog in the tree

He’s laughing, he’s full of glee

There’s a mouse chasing a cat

I’m going to get you, you dirty rat

 

hearts

Look and you will find

All of those you have left behind

Dust bunnies under the chair

Mixed all in with the dog’s hair

You think I don’t care? Beware.

hearts

You are a silly goat

I think you’ve lost my rope

I’m such a dope

I don’t know how to cope

Without my rope

Nope

hearts

Before I go there’s one more thing

I really wish that I could sing

I for one will miss your contests

A weekly terrible but the best

It was fun

I wish that I’d been here when it begun

Is there anything we could do

So many of us are feeling blue

Please change your mind

and keep it going

If you do we’ll all be glowing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family of Squirrels

The following children’s poem was written in response to Crispina’s weekly challenge. 

CCC#76

There’s a tree in the field where squirrels love to play

The trunk is partially hollowed out, come with me to see it today

I’ll introduce you to my friends

You’ll see that there are ten

A family of squirrels that all have names

They are friendly and quite tame

Mama likes to sit on my boot

She really is such hoot

Squirrel Daddy

Never treats anyone badly

Then there is Fuzzy whos never bathed

He was very stinky the other day

The eldest girls name is Pearly

and yes she is squirrely

Next, there are the twin’s Skippy and Slappy

They’re so much fun and always happy

A flying squirrel whose name is Rocky

His mama says he’s quite cocky

Another male, that’s quite burly

Due to his tail, his name is Curly

Abby is my favorite girl

She loves to whirl and twirl

The last of the ten is named Sandy

She’s always asking me for candy

Please come along with me today

Meet the squirrels who love to play

Hammy the hamster

Was such a little prankster

He hid in dad’s shoe

 

When dad stepped into

Are you ready for this one

Squish, Hammy no more

 

Sing-Along Song Challenge

Crispina Kemp has a new challenge. 

For her challenge, I chose What a Wonderful World. If you’d like to sing along, here are the lyrics.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do
They’re only saying I love you
I see babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn so much more than I’ll ever know
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do
They’re only saying I love you
I see babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn so much more than I’ll ever know
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world

Imaginary Friend

This week over at V.J’s the weekly challenge is IMAGINARY.

 

When I was a little girl I would go on many long car rides with my parents. One year we were driving to Old Orchard Beach, Maine for our vacation and that’s when I came up with an imaginary friend that I called, my little piece of wind who’d enter the car when I opened the window. 

You’re always willing to listen

to everything I say

It doesn’t really matter

the time of day

You come with me wherever I go

even to places, I do not know

You are my little piece of wind

When I think of you, it makes me grin

Is There a Monster Underneath

The following poem was written in response to #Crimson’s Creative Challenge #70.

CCC70

 

What lurks beneath?

Perhaps something with very large teeth.

Will it bite me if I look to see?

Will it bite me in the knee?

Maybe it’s friendly

Maybe it’s deadly

I don’t wait around

Time to leave this town

Running as fast as I can

Back to my van

This post is in answer to Share Your World.

Questions: Are you a sweet, sour, tangy or other type of person?  Take that as you will! 😉

Depends on my mood 🙂

Does the whole coronavirus phenomenon worry you?  Or are you more a “meh – it’s just another severe flu scare” type of person?

It worries me a great deal.

When was the last time you were snooping and found something you wish you hadn’t?s

Back when I was 14 I went snooping through my parent’s closet and found a ton of record albums of all bands that I liked. It was Christmastime and thought WOW I’ve hit the jackpot this year. Turned out my step-mother was hiding them for a friend of hers. I was so disappointed.

What’s the most pleasant sounding accent in your personal opinion?   Everyone has a pleasing accent to someone! 

I have a weakness for a Scottish accent.  Sean Connery … bring it on 🙂
