A silly poem – Food that I Adore.

This poem was written in response to this challenge set by Esther Chilton.

If you want to take part, see the link below:


The challenge was to write something about your favourite food.



Of all the foodstuffs I like most,

I’ve got to say, it’s beans on toast.

I could eat them for my dinner,

I would happily have a munch,

And though you may call me Sinner

I’d have them for my lunch,

And breakfast too, I’m not so proud,

They’re cheap as chips, so lick my lips,

I’m prepared to shout out loud.

It’s beans on toast that I love most

They help me dissipate the crowd,

With an unfortunate gaseous cloud.

There is one thing more,

That I adore,

And I could not forsake,

So, therefore, let me implore

Bring me some Tea and Cake.

Keeping Granny on her Toes – A Poem

This poem was written in response to this challenge set by Esther Chilton.

If you want to take part, see the link below:


The challenge was to write something about “Kids”.


Keeping Granny on her Toes


As my cousins and I ran through

granny’s house, leaving carpet skids,

We heard her dulcet tones ring out

screaming “Bloody Kids”.


Granny loved her grandchildren very dearly,

of that we were aware,

‘But why’, thought Granny, ‘did her daughters

use her for free childcare?’


She chased us around her garden beds

with her garden hose.

We all thought it was our duty,

to keep dear Granny on her toes.


But although she used to swear,

and shout when we behaved ‘full-on’,

Granny gave us all the best of hugs,

and I miss her now she’s gone.

Look Out Below – A Silly Rhyme

“Look out below!” 

The young man said

But too late, it fell

on someone’s head.


“Oh dear, I did warn”

Said the young fellow, 

“Before I dropped

that old piano.”


But Condolences,

it gave none at all,

the other was killed

by the piano’s fall.


“I’ll shout much louder,

Perhaps, ‘Take Cover!’

the next time I try

to push out another.”


This tales moral,

Don’t be too slow

when someone shouts out,

“Look out Below!”


The End

Narcissists Joke – A light hearted poem.

Narcissism seems to be

in fashion currently.

It’s everywhere you care

to look, especially T.V.

Smile for the camera’s dear

You’re the reason why we’re here.

It is a royal wedding, true,

You think it’s all about you. 

Why can’t everyone see,

it’s not all about them.

No, no, not at all.


It’s all about me.  

He he.
