Here are a couple of silly poems to lighten things up a bit!


She wears diamante drop ear-rings
and cropped tops
(her midriff all naked and bare),
black, skin-tight leggings
and a bow in her upswept hair.
She goes to raves and dances
until the rosy dawn;
can drink with the best -
cocks a snoot at the rest -
'Life's for living' is her philosophy.
'You're a spoilsport!' you say?
'Let the girl have her day.'
The girl?
My gran's seventy three...


He was a vegetarian
by birth-sign Sagittarian.
She was into lamb and mint
wore leather shoes
and did not stint
on pork, or beef or venison.
And so he said 'If, very soon
you do not change your naughty traits
there will just be no more dates.'
But she went on eating sausages,
so no more is he hers
or is she his!
