TRIPE

I read my new poem

to a publisher friend of mine

he replied

"it's a load of old tripe"

I thought you swine

The very next day

I read him two more

he quickly showed me

his publishers door

I then posted him a poem

I thought a load of tripe

"I love it"

he announced

then used it to light his publishers pipe.

THAT FOOL

The biggest fool

I ever new

sat down next to me

on a pew

As I moved my head

he did too

and when I looked at his foot

he was wearing my shoe

So I turned away

and to my surprise

when I turned back

he looked me straight in the eyes

I thought how strange

what should I do?

then the mirror said

"you fool! that fool is you.

FREE BIRDS

The birds are free

to roam the skies

to play the tree tops

to dive then rise

and in their song

you will hear

"it's freedom that makes me happy dear"

WHY A SAUSAGE IS THE SHAPE IT IS

Make no mistake

it's not so they'll easily bake

that the shape of a sausage

is the shape they make

It's the mashed potatoes, you see

that taste quite bland

yet when served with a sausage

taste quite grand

The most important thing

is not the brand

it's the shape of the sausage

that when pushed in the mash

will easily stand.

MY PET SNAKE

MY PET SNSKE

SWALLOWED A CAKE

THEN A GARDEN RAKE

AND TWO TOY SOLDIERS

THAT BELONGED TO MY FRIEND JAKE

HE ATE MY DADS BOAT

MY MUMS COAT

MY SISTERS DOLLS HOUSE

THEN MY CATS TOY MOUSE

MY PET SNAKE

WAS CERTAINLY NEVER DULL

BECAUSE WHEN I ASKED

IF HE'D LIKE HIS DINNER

HE SAID

"NO THANKS I'M FULL"
