What do you see # 36 – 29 June 2020

 

The camera, they say never lies

But so often it seems to disguise

the model’s face and its flaws

a bold nose or weak jaws

so the truth never reaches the eyes.

So here is my attempt:

 

A lesson in weight-loss I thought I’d teach,

but then I heard an almighty screech,

I ran into the kitchen

and saw her cravings were itching,

I’d put the chocolate up way out of reach.

Here is my attempt:

“As I lay in the grass, all content
The night winds appearing God-sent
I gaze up at the moon
and start to assume
that some bugger has stolen my tent.”

 

And if you like this one you may like this poem I wrote a while ago called Moongazing:

Limerick Woes – A Playful Limerick and a Terrible Poem

I thought I would enter Chelsea Owens Terrible Poetry Contest, which this week is to write a Limerick:

Here is the link to her post:

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 3/14 – 3/20/2020

I thought I’d try a Limerick,

It sounded fun, a lark, a kick,

but please take my advice

and always think twice

because now I’m feeling quite sick. 

 

This poem was written for the Word of the Day Word prompts: Limerick, Advice and Kick

Terribly Bad Poetry – Shakespeare’s Legacy

Chelsea Owens has launched her Terrible Poetry Competition, see the link to her post below:

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest

This weeks theme is to write a limerick about a poet who takes himself too seriously…

So here goes…

 

Shakespeare was incredibly clever

But he wrote terribly dull poems, however,

And when his day was done,

His poems still live on

Because they’ve been taught in our schools forever.

Said the Kingpin to Miss Golightly

“you look dirty and rather unsightly

And It’s rather a strain

Seeing you again and again,

Why don’t you attempt bathing nightly?”

 

This Limerick was written in response to the following word prompts:

A Life on the Edge – A multiple word prompts poem / Double Limerick

 

I’m living my life on the edge,

I’ve promised and given my pledge,

It may come as a surprise,

But believe me, it’s wise,

Don’t accept the thin end of the wedge

 

I’ve decided to follow my dreams

No matter how far the extremes

I’ll dance and I’ll revel,

Rules can go to the devil,

There much more to life than it seems.

A multiple Word Prompt Poem – Mayhem Released.

I asked my Mentor, which way is due west?

My compass was far from the best,

But he’d been drinking Sambuca

and pulled out his bazooka,

I don’t think I’d ever seen him more stressed.

 

“Never Mind” I said in calm tones,

I felt danger ahead in my bones,

The sight of his gun

had spoiled my fun,

I’d rather take my chance with unknowns.

 

So I ran into the forest to hide,

for there one thing I could never abide

and that’s mayhem released,

from drunk man or beast,

It’s always best to avoid homicide.

Puddle-Jumping – A Limerick

You said that it’s really auspicious
To jump in a puddle, I’m feeling judicious
Your language is such,
That I doubt it so much,
But then I’ve always been over suspicious.

 

Or

You said that it’s really auspicious

to jump in a puddle? I’m suspicious.

Your language is such,

that I doubt it so much,

I think your claim is purely fictitious.

 

So now I’m wondering which you think is best?
