Thread: Where the poetry thread go?

  1. #1

    Default Where the poetry thread go?

    Was in mid post, and it vanished!

    Oh well, here it is anyway.....

    At least the second verse has lines that rhyme. Dunno why they call lines that don't rhyme and are of the right length poetry

    Best watch yourself Goodfellers. Alistair Stewart found himself in a bit of a pickle over Shakesepare......

    So he did...quick thinking on his part. I'm no Caliban.

    Maybe Dozy didn't like my 2nd verse!

    Feel free to add lines.

    There once was a man from Caithness
    Who's spelling and grammar was all over the place

    There once was a man from Caithness

    That gave him a twinkle in his eye
    But his mum said Let me sell the story
    Or I'll cry
    So she sold her son to the Sun
    Now she's spending the money and having fun.

    There once was a man on a forum
    Whose posts showed little decorum
    He liked baiting others
    Who weren't his brothers
    But one day his rubbish will bore um

    There once was a "leader" called Krankie
    Who's heir would wear the green hanky
    On the left so to pull
    The young lads still at school
    And now everyone thinks that he's manky

    Nicky had a little lamb
    It fleeced tax paying Jocks
    Then texted party activists
    For pictures of their hens

    Think that last one above needs some work on the rhyming yet.

    There once was a chap called Mackay
    Whos text left him high and dry
    The young men were in awe
    Of his promises of what was in store
    Now all he has is press banging on his door.

    The boy stood on the burning deck
    Of the SS SNP
    And said "where did it go so wrong
    This ain't Fan-Dab-Ee-Do-Zee"

    The ship it took another lurch
    And all 'twas seen was sky
    The boy he clung on to the mast
    And cursed that plank, Mackay

    The other way, the ship rolled back
    The waves were sinister
    And all because of actions
    Of the ex First Minister

    To port, began, the ship to list
    Upon the stormy sea
    Again the boy he did so curse
    That Bloody Natalie!

    The boy, he looked towards the sky
    And entered into prayer
    To curse the southwest Reverend
    Who called him The Betrayer

    The boy he closed his eyes and prayed
    "Please save me from the fire"
    When the ship was saved from fatal peril
    By Boris on a zipwire

    Someday, if you have a minute, I'll give you a rendition of that classic nursery rhyme "Mark McDonald had no charm"

    Which is about as politically incorrect as that other version - "Old McDonald had dyslexia - U, O, A, R, C"

    There was another new thread by Dozy on here earlier today with references to the Wizard of Oz but that has now also disappeared- perhaps not surprisingly since that is a fantasy- but quite like the new game of now you see it now you don't.

    It's a shame Dozy keeps deleting shortly after posting. I find them really cryptic and enjoy trying to work out the 'real' message.
