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
This was written for #SoCS – Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
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.
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
Oh my goodness
Oh my gosh
I would love some mackintosh
As I’m as hungry as a bear
Look at my cute underwear
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
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.
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
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
The following children’s poem was written in response to Crispina’s weekly challenge.
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
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

For her challenge, I chose What a Wonderful World. If you’d like to sing along, here are the lyrics.
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
The following poem was written in response to #Crimson’s Creative Challenge #70.
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
