Dodgy poetry

    It is a stretch to call my dodgy poetry 'entertainment' but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

    self-fulfilling prophecy


    Is it true that

    if you fear,

    the world appears

    to turn its hurt

    upon your ears?

    And if misused

    from early age,

    abused by others’ rage,

    it’s bruises you exude?

    And when you dare to doubt

    they shout and scare,

    tearing at your will

    and say they ‘care’.

    But when no-one hears

    your anguished cries,

    memories languish

    in latent spaces,

    where lonely tears

    bleed upon

    tomorrow’s seedlings.

    Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
    Thy micturations are to me
    As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
    Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes,
    And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
    Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts
    With my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!

    Oh, sorry, thought you were asking for some....

    Sir82. Is that by the Vogons? :) Looks vaguely familiar.

    Don't want people gnawing off their arms, do we now?

    He stumbled when he saw the sky

    Soon all his chips began to fly

    He grabbed to try to break his fall

    And crashed his head against the wall

    Many stopped to wonder why

    He ever tried to touch the sky

    Roses are red,

    After reading your poetry my eardrums burst

    alas, I can still read.

    The pain, the pain, the pain!

    the pain just made his eardrums burst

    with roses he has now been cursed

    stop the poetry he said

    my cheeks have turned a rosey red
