Make up a silly story, tell a joke, talk about your day, your life, in fact anything at all ...

... BUT ONLY IN VERSE! :-D :-D :-D

The sun is out, don't wear a frown
Just turn that frown right upside down!
Go for a walk, a jog, or a spin.
It's much too nice for you to stay in! :-D :-D :-D :-D


Kucinta Report 28 Mar 2017 14:03

Alas, alack, I have to work,
The bosses will not let me shirk! :-(

The trolleys all are full of books
and students give us dirty looks
so though the sun may shine all day,
I simply have to put the books away. :-( :-(


JemimaFawr Report 28 Mar 2017 14:06

:-D :-D :-D :-D

If you decided to throw a "sicky"
You would have time to compose a quicky! ;-)


Kucinta Report 28 Mar 2017 14:07

Long time since I had a quicky m'dear! ;-)

Shock horror, Jem has had to walk to the surgery today
How quickly you get used to driving, always- come what may!
I had to use my legs because OH did take the car
It only took 7 minutes or so, it isn't very far! :-D


Kathryn Report 28 Mar 2017 19:32

The school bus has been and gone
Time to put some washing on
Empty the bin clean the floor
Make a bee line for the door
Hit shops do some shopping
Back home to peeling and chopping
Now it's time for tea and a bun
Put my feet up and read the sun :-D


JemimaFawr Report 28 Mar 2017 19:58

:-D :-D :-D Well done Kathy!

OH is watching the footy again
Tonight he is watching France versus Spain
Watching men kicking the ball back and fore
And many of them oft like to "dive" on the floor.
Hoping the Referee gives out cards of Yellow
Or even a Red would please many a cheating fellow.
I'd rather see rugby on any given day
When's The Lions Tour? Hip Hip Hooray! ;-) :-D :-D

If anyone liked "Ernie, Who Drove The Fastest Milk Cart in the West"
The thread below has a No Letter E version and sequels in jest


But using no E was extremely limiting
Not to mention very inhibiting
So now we can carry on without diminishing
The stories we have been creating!

......So why are we waiting?

Yoooooo Hooooo Kathy, are you game?
If you are- then I feel the same!
Shall we carry on from where we left off?
Perhaps to include Tamara the Toff!;-) ;-) ;-) :-D :-D :-D :-D


Dermot Report 28 Mar 2017 20:46

Mary had a little lamb.
He was full of fun & frolics.
He tried to jump a nine-bar gate.
He fell down & broke his leg!


JemimaFawr Report 28 Mar 2017 20:49

Oh Dermot! Poor Mary :-0
Did she / he jump like a fairy? ;-) :-D :-D
A nine-bar gate is too high too jump
Mary was quite a chump :-D

Ooooops I seem to have read it all wrong
It was the lamb who jumped in Dermot's song
So it wasn't Mary that did the hop
But the LAMB that's going for the chop ;-) :-D


Allan Report 28 Mar 2017 23:04

Oh, Gawd! Through sun and through rain
Good old Jem is at it again.

Thinking up quizzes, now in verse.
I think my response may be rather terse.

I live in a land where men wear hats with slouches,
And, according to Jem, the elephants have pouches.

We do have animals with rear legs like Thumper,
And when crossed with sheep you have a woolly jumper.

However, the grapes are great, and this will rock your socksies
Their alcoholic juice arrives in cardboard boxes.

With a little more thought I'm sure this tome
Could form the basis for an epic poem

Thinking, however is not my forte,
So I'll finish now before I add something naughty ;-)

Edited at 11.49 Woz time to make it scan better :-D

When Allan gets writing his stories are Ace
They are cheeky and naughty and always fast-paced
His tales are amusing when he's been on the Red
Causing howls of loud laughter, it really must be said.

So if we say please, even pretty please, too
Our Allan may write a droll ditty or two!. :-D :-D :-D


Kathryn Report 29 Mar 2017 09:08

Good morning <3

I'm off to the doctors to give some blood
Hope the results come back good
Next stop the post office to buy a card
To send to auntie my regards
Now wait there's something else to do
What it is I haven't a clue
Often have senior moments like this
Oh never mind I'll give it a miss :-D


Kucinta Report 29 Mar 2017 13:37

I've spent my lunch hour in quite a tizz,
trying to solve Jem's anagramatical quiz,
but now at last I think I've got it,
So time for tea and a bite of choclit.


JemimaFawr Report 29 Mar 2017 19:28

You have indeed solved my quiz, Kucinta
Although I had posted a clue in there ....
I'd messed up my letters, it could not make sense
Slapped wrists for me now, as recompense :-D :-D :-D


Kucinta Report 29 Mar 2017 20:38

We don't do slaps, nor slap and tickle
Else we'd end up in a pickle :-0
Now I can't think what to say,
I'll have to give up for the day
Rhyme and rhythm should be easy,
But my lines just turn out cheesy :-D :-D :-D

"That's the last!" shouted the Cobbler
As he threw it at his wife,
"You've done nowt but flamin' nag me, all our married life"

This really was a brave thing for him to actually do
As he was barely five foot four,
And she was six foot two

What was the final straw that broke the camel's back
And pushed him to the brink
To cause this vile attack ?

Was it the name calling he'd endured throughout the years?
Perhaps the physical violence,
That induced the many tears?

Well, when a man grows old,
And his heart grows cold,
To you a tale he'll tell,

So pull up a chair and buy me a drink
And a tale to you I'll tell,
Off the long suffering Cobbler, and his wife,
Whose name was Dirty Nell! ;-)

Heaven alone knows where I'm going with this one :-S

Those last two verses, with suitable omissions and alterations, have been plagiarised directly from the opening verses of that epic poem 'Eskimo Nell' :-D :-D


JemimaFawr Report 30 Mar 2017 09:20

Thank you Allan, now I have a sore head ...
.... from laughing so much before going to bed! :-D :-D :-D :-D


Allan Report 30 Mar 2017 10:16

Oh, Jem. Laugh before breakfast and cry before night
My poetry efforts do not seem so right.

I had no wish to induce such pain!
I will, however, try to repeat it again.

Hopefully, unlike my Sherlock story,
this one, however gory,
Will at least have an ending....

The rest of the saga is a story still pending :-P :-D :-D
