    I thought I'd start a Special Thread
    Of Poems writ by Members here,
    That p'raps will boost their Forum Cred
    And p'raps, too, spread a little Cheer?

    So I invite you, one and all,
    When posting, use melodious verse
    To voice, opine, discuss, recall,
    -In pleasant tones, so please don't curse!

    The RULES are STRICT!
    It ALL must RHYME!)
    (I'll not be tricked
    So take your time!

    The moths are eating all my clothes
    Ate my hankie, can't blow my nose
    They come and hide around the house
    I like them better, than a mouse
    But all those holes, what can I say
    Mothballs they don't keep them away
    Those little eggs, like rice they are
    I think I'll put them in a jar
    So when I move I'll send them to
    Our nasty landlord, toodle loo

    George the peacock is randy,
    His efforts at mating extreme
    He frightens the hens who chose 9 and 10's
    When judging his fine display.

    But events turned sour
    When it took all his power
    To impress an open umbrella

    Making the call that enthralled us all
    He headed straight for his “mate”
    Only to find it was not the kind
    of hen he would wish to encounter
    his fate was sealed - the umbrella revealed
    poor George was all a flutter,
    the hens all agreed, that our dear George
    was nothing but a nutter.




    never mind George should have gone to specsavers

    Holding back the years...

    Mating with an umbrella?
    What a silly fellah!

    A peacock he may be,
    A pea-brain, certainly!

    I have never had a wasband, I married for all my life
    He chose me, to be, his loyal all time wife
    I really took some taming, he knew that from the start
    The vows we took, on that day, were really from the heart
    So now I say, to anyone, make sure he is the one
    Save yourself some heartache, vows are not for some

    I'm just in a romantic kind of mood. It must be Sam's Milk Tray man thread.

    Languages

    I can speak the language of the fools
    The ones that never heard of schools
    I can speak the language of the drunks
    The ones that call just call everyone punks
    I can speak the language of the posh
    They just say Oh golly gosh
    I can't say nothing, that's not me
    But it takes two, or even three

    Autumn
    The leaves are falling to the ground
    Slowly fluttering all around
    The branches, they will soon be bare
    Warmer clothing, we shall wear
    No summer days without a care
    No sitting in my garden chair
    The days grow short, the lights go on
    Migrating birds have all but gone
    But all is not bad, I have to say
    Soon it will be Christmas day

    I had to search to find this thread
    I wont let it go to bed

    A rhyme a day will keep it showing
    I am going to try and keep it going

    Today I leave you with a thought
    Never ever get distraught

    Life's too short for all that worry
    Got to go, I'm in a hurry

    I am very much afeared
    By the current trend for beard.

    A man who be far much too hairy
    Gets from me the steely stare. He

    May think he is butch and macho,
    But to me, he ain't no catch. No!

    Baby's bottoms are much preferred

    I've stopped kissing things, all since
    I kissed a garden frog
    To see if he'd become my Prince.
    He didn't, though. Oh bog!

    Still on the kissing theme I see.

    A Kiss in time, is quite sublime
    A kiss too late, will ruin a date
    A sloppy kiss, I'll give a miss
    A good old snog, that does the job

    There was a young lady from brum
    a very fine tune did she hum
    She fell off her chair and flew through the air
    then crashed to the ground on her bum..
