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 Final Call – A Poem for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

 

 

Of care and nurture, there is a dearth,

Though some instil some peace on earth,

But indecision from government’s elect,

May mean there’s not much Earth left to protect.

Amelia Rose’s Day – a little poem.

 

 

 

Dear Little Amelia Rose,

Tomorrow is your day

You’ll be the envy of all your friends,

But not in a jealous way.

You’ll have to sacrifice your usual fun,

To stay so neat and glistening,

Because scuffed knees are just not done,

When at your Christening.

You can’t live backwards

The past’s gone; You may as well

Try to catch the wind.

 

The picture also made me think of the following song:

Self Truth – A very short poem

 

No matter how fervent you are with your lies,

here’s good advice, some words to the wise.

though the truth may seem foreign, ‘a strange little elf’

You shouldn’t be disingenuous, not with your self.

A substantial road,

A heavenly astral path

called the Milky Way.

Adventurous Soul – A very short poem.

To Travel on life’s adventurous road,

with the wind in my sails and feeling freed,

after years of being trapped, my passage, slowed

I’m determined to go forward with all God’s speed.

There’s no greater delight for our struggling soul,

than to finally see the light and achieve a substantial goal.

In luscious waves of finest green

the gentle hills of a Tuscany scene,

is there a more suitable sight?

this region inspires such pure delight.
