What a Mess

The following was written for a challenge called Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.


The classroom was a zoo

the teacher had loose screws

she didn’t know what to do

The classroom was a mess

Looked like a tornado, no less






Is There a Monster Underneath

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




Valentine’s Day Poem – Just For Fun

This is a poem I wrote back in 2011. I thought I’d share it for Friday.
Don’t bring me roses or chocolates tonight
Bring me diamonds that glitter in the moonlight
A Mercedes would be nice as well
Rack the cards, the house we can sell
Don’t forget that cruise you promised
This weekend off we go to the Bahamas
Mumm champagne will do just fine
Before we go out, of course, to dine
Caviar is expected
Forget it and you’ll be rejected
If you insist on bringing home candy
Please  make sure they are filled with brandy
To top the night off, I will have to insist
 that you give me a back rub, I will not resist

Before I go, darling, there is one more thing

Make sure the diamond is a four-carat ring!

Just to let you know, I wrote this just for fun as the title says. I as well as many others I am sure are sick to death of Special Days and holidays being over-commercialized. Spend, spend, spend no, no, no. There are many ways you can show your love for someone on Valentine’s Day without lavishing them with gifts.

I heard a sound

I looked around

Guess what I found

Yes, a hound

Sitting proudly upon a mound

I sat beside him on the ground

The Swimming Pig

Piggly Wiggly learned how to swim

He worked out every day at the gym

Until one day when he broke a limb

Fallen Leaves

This silly poem was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #52.


Skipping through the woods

Avoiding all the leaves they could

Not wanting to hurt any

and let me tell you … there were many

Stopping every now and then

To pick the pretty ones to defend

Carefully put them into a book

not wanting them to crook

Taking them all back to their mothers

Perhaps one would use them to recover

Recover what? you ask

Silly me, their facemasks

FOWC with Fandango (Fandango’s One Word Challenge)

Today’s word is “suit”


Image by Jonny Lindner from Pixabay 


I couldn’t believe my eyes

When I looked outside

There stood a dog in a suit

What a hoot

He even wore a tie

You know I wouldn’t lie

I wondered where his owner was

No reason just because



Food Lover – Poem

Gourmand is the word. 

FOWC with Fandango


The man was a gourmand

And, a poor man

When it came to food

He had to feed a brood


Hot dogs and Kraft Dinner

Was all always a winner


When invited out to eat

He would never miss a beat


He loved buffets

Because he could graze

Upon the food

Actually, he seemed quite rude


He loved Christmastime

His favorite time to dine

Eat and eat mainly all the meat

Once gone,  he’d look for all the sweets


The man was a glutton

Needed to wear a button

Explaining that he overate

Knowing that it was quite a mistake



Peanut Butter

This silly little poem is for a challenge over at Patricia’s Place. Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less Use the picture and/or the word(s) peanut butter as inspiration.



Peanut butter is like no other

Go ahead and ask your brother

Eat it on bread

Use it as a spread

Touch mine and you’ll be dead

Who Built This Bridge


I see a bridge that’s made very badly

I would pay someone to fix it gladly

To let the boats through to the other side

Only of course when there’s no rough tide

The wood is good, the chains are strong

When they built it something went wrong

When it’s down you can walk across

Just be careful not to trip on the moss
