Addictive, ain't it?

Shopping List

A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread, and Thou-
sand Island Dressing. Pampers. Puppy Chow.

First Draft

By the shores of Gitchee Gumee
(Strike that. Dr. Seuss will sue me.)

Bush Approves Oil Drilling in Alaska Reserve

Piping down the valleys wild
makes Republicans reviled.

After the Cookoff

There was a roaring in the wind all night;
but we'd enjoyed that chili, every bite.

Matchmaker

Because I could not stop for Death,
I fixed him up with Great-Aunt Beth.

Closing Hymn

Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!
And next week my sermon will not be so deep.

Fight Song

We're sons of Californ-i-a, fair mistress of the sea,
so on the roads we hail each other truly: "S.O.B.!"

Least-Eligible Bachelor

They flee from me that sometime did me seek.
My dotcom's bankrupt. Now I'm just a geek.

Cosmic, Man

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
requires a substance that's been banned.

Party Atmosphere

I wandered lonely as a cloud
for I'd been passing wind aloud.

Herds Linked to BSE Destroyed

What passing-bells for those who die as cattle?
"Why, cowbells, stupid! Stop your brainless prattle!"

Dirty Minivan

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
leaves WASH ME and a smiley in the grit.

Frustration

I think that I shall never see
a public toilet seat unpeed.

I think I'll pick on our own Master of Memory:

Poor Man's Car

Edmund Clerihew Bentley
drove a Chevy, evidently.

Broken Windshield

All night driving south
spitting bugs from out my mouth

Next Morning - Having Closed the Bar

Leaving the pond she looks like something I knew
rising from the Black Lagoon, on cue.

Bear *grin*

And the arms reach to embrace their own rib cage
though he better loves the words he puts to page.

Dressin Up, Coming Out

It's the Angel Moroni, resplendent in gold drag,
- resplendent, but it lets his fake tits sag

Everything's Bigger in Texas

It's hot in the mountains now, even at night
you're in Texas where Hellfires burn even more bright.


Sorry, Robert: hope you're still speaking to me *grin*

It's Legal, Now

One foot on the floor, one knee in bed
must we be so inventive, now that we're wed?

Sigh...........

That's what comes of posting in the wee hours. "Lists" and "two" were both typos, as I presume was Ms Benedict's "a".

So it goes...

Snow falling, and night falling fast, oh fast,
hiding that piss-ugly Volvo at last...

Does anyone besides me think it's hysterical that a Stoner posted the following?

Cosmic, Man

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
requires a substance that's been banned.


jejeje™

Yes Julie's grain of sand is brilliant! And yes--STONER

A few for the reaper:


Soft Embalmer

When I have fears that I may cease to be
I add a tot of brandy to my tea.

Stearn Warning

Stand on the highest pavement of the stair
If you’re the man I passed who wasn’t there.


On Time

Fly envious Time, till thou run out thy race
and thy behind approximates thy face.

Mary, Part 2

Mary had a little lamb
marinated in mint jam.
