Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!! – My addition to the Crazy Bucket List.

So, that Marvel of the Blogosphere and thoroughly cheeky chappy, Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, has tagged me in one of these fantastic collaborative poems. This one is about a Bucket list of desired experiences.

See his post here:

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!!

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!!

So, so much to do, and with so little time,
I want to do everything, nothing to be missed,
But how do I plan it all, how do I define,
The perfectly crazy bucket list?

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/04/13/the-perfectly-crazy-bucket-list/

First up is a lush tropical jungle,
Jaguars and waterfalls… all quite insane;
I do hope my parachute isn’t all bungled,
When I jump from the doorway of this airplane!

Perfectly Crazy Bucket List!

I want to take a rocket into space,
Or maybe a submarine ride deep in the sea.
I sure hope they will save me a place,
Because that’s where I really want to be!

Rory’s Perfectly Crazy Bucket List!

A trip to the mountains is what l’d choose,
I’ll make sure to wear climbing shoes,
Rocks are high and edges slippery,
Wouldn’t want to fall off the periphery,

I’d like to see the world, visit the sands of Abu Dhabi
take a cruise down the Golden Gate Bridge in my Maserati
head to New England and catch a game at old Fenway Park,
then board a ship to Costa Rica where I can swim with a shark.

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too! (collaboration poetry)

I’d travel to the desert in Egypt
And photograph the pyramids
Then board the Cairo railway,
To the Chocolateria in Madrid.

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!! – Bucket List

Swimming with dolphins in the ocean deep
A worldwide cruise, though it won’t be cheap
I want to write a novel, and hope it’s a best seller
To see my book upon a shelf, wouldn’t that be stellar?

I’d love to ride a zip wire high up in the trees
And to do so fearlessly as often as I please.
A Starfighter pilot I’d dearly love to be
I smash the evil aliens and set the good world’s free.

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two, Too! – Bucket List

For the longest time, I have dreamt of Tuscany
Not merely to visit, but to eat, live, and dine
Vacation in ’16 felt like my destiny
I’m ever so convinced, I will fit in just fine

Not Just My Verse, Yours Too

Gallowayshire, the ancestral home,
the trip of my dreams with enough £s to roam;
to meet with some long-losts in Wigtown for tea
to stroll through the heather; gaze out o’er the sea.

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two, Too – The Bucket List – #poetrychallenge

To see the Northern Lights is my one true desire
I could look at them forever, and never really tire
Color painting the skies, brightens earth and sea
The Aurora Borealis, now that’s the scene for me

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two, Too – The Bucket List – #poetrychallenge

My feet walking along the shoreline of a pristine island
with crystal clear water, pink sand, and beautiful palms.
Doesn’t much matter which one as long as the weather is grand.
Shades on, lotion lathered, now let’s work on releasing qualms.

And here is my addition….

I want to dance the Time Warp on the fancy New York stage,
And when feeling lacklustre, have a cup of tea with the Queen.
I want to represent for everyone the epitome of a bygone age,
And be the best dressed celebrity, the world has ever seen!

 

So who to pass this on to? How about the lovely Sadje of Keep it Alive?

Trite performance

 

I have also included the following prompts for the day.

Multiple Word Prompt Poem – Identically Different.

 

 

You may say we are identical

But don’t believe your eyes

One of us is honest

Whilst the other one tells lies

It is hard to tell the difference

But when you’ve known us for a while,

One will drive you to despair

The other will make you smile.

One is full of bounding energy

One is lacklustre and sedate

You probably won’t know which of us you’re with,

Until it’s far too late.

From one, you’ll want to run away

And require some respite,

The other one will make your day

And that is all despite

the fact we look the same

but it’s a very good disguise,

but can you believe a word I say?

I could be telling lies.

Swelling, Protuberances and Apologies.

I have been totally lacklustre today.

I woke up with a strange swelling in my face. I have had random strange swellings (Not the kind you’re thinking of) before. I have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Angioedema, which sounds really cool, but what that just means is that parts of my body, specifically the layer beneath my skin, will swell up and the Idiopathic bit means, they don’t know why.

I have been taking tablets to keep it at bay, antihistamines, but they don’t always do the trick.

It could be caused by a virus or a bacterial infection in my blood, that whizzes around causing my own bodies autoimmune system to swell up to stop it.

It isn’t painful, only uncomfortable and quite scary.

The consultant gave me some sage advice. “Don’t panic,” he said, “It will only make the condition worse” he added.

“Worse?” I responded but what I said was barely audible because my lips had swollen to the size of an R&B artist’s bottom implants.

That was back when it first happened and I was concerned I was going to end up having an anaphylactic shock.

Now I just tend to scream on the inside.

So, I apologise for not being very productive blogwise today. Hopefully, normal service will resume soon.

I hope none of you decides to unfollow me in a fit of pique, due to my poor performance of today.

I’ll have a good nights sleep tonight, then I should be back with you tomorrow, my usual enthusiastic, imaginative and creative self.

Good evening.
