THE LITTLE GREEN MAN AND THE TAMBOURINE

April 19, 2014

chonka

A little man dressed in green

played upon a tambourine.

He slipped near the edge,

took a tumble and a fall,

crawled under the door

and into the hall.

He was oh so tiny.

He was oh so small.

There’s no more to tell.

It’s over. That’s all.

THE LABBIMIST

April 16, 2014

labbimist

That wall of fog with fingers is the wily labbimist.

Shun its cloudy twinings. On this I must insist.

For if it should enfold you in its milky sightless seep

captured there forever you’ll be lost like Bo Peep’s sheep.

RANCE MARL AND THE IT, ITS, IT’S POEM

April 14, 2014

Rance Marl

It’s a walking, talking pile of rocks

Rance Marl is its name

It doesn’t own a pair of socks

It’s not afraid of flame

It’s said to be a marvelous guide

On one of its boulders you may ride

THE MUD HEN

the mud hen is a stubborn bird

it won’t come when you call

you must lure it with a song and dance

while balanced on a ball

THE RHYMING BANDIT

April 7, 2014

Reach for the ceiling
Reach for the floor
Reach for the window next to the door

Reach for the sky
Reach for the sea
Reach for the bird on the top of that tree

Reach for the dog
Reach for the cat
Reach for your money and put it in my hat

NONSENSE POEM

April 2, 2014

Nonsense poems are always green unless they’re red or blue. The one below is orange.

Hungry

I ate a plate of flavored nails,

some porridge and a boat.

I was still a little hungry

so I ate my sister’s coat.

I went outside to ride my bike

and found to my surprise

I was still a little hungry

so I ate a tree with fries.

I made the fries from twigs and rocks.

They tasted not so great.

I salted them with dirt and dust.

And that was all I ate

except for many other things

and the garden gate.

THE MISSING PIECE

March 29, 2014

I finished the puzzle yesterday

but it’s missing one of its pieces

It’s not on the floor or under the door

or in the couch cushion creases

Where oh where oh where did it go?

Where oh where oh where could it be?

One thing for sure without any doubt

it can’t be in snow under a tree

ZOMBIE MOM RANT

March 26, 2014

Look at this room

It’s not a mess

How often must I tell you to tear your dress?

Look at your hands

Not a finger missing

You think a 2 eared head is worth me kissing?

Unshape now

Get rid of that nose

If you want to play in the tombstone rows
