Ode to a Hamburger bunOh hamburger bun dear hamburger bun,
so unspoiled and so clean
Its been over a month now
Why oh why are you not green?
I left you on the counter
without a care, Day after day
I ignored you were there.
By now I figured you'd be full of mold
as a reminder to not eat you
a subtle hint that you're old.
However you live on, still in my life
although I'm sure you'd have been thrown out
if I had me a wife.
But its me and you buddy, til my days are done
just little ol me
and my hamburger bun.
HoboIf I were a hobo what would I do?Hobo10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'd live in a box and pee on you.
I'd sleep on the ground instead of a bed,
and bugs would live in the hair on my head.
I'd live on the streets, homes aren't an option.
And kids, if they're lucky, get put up for adoption.
And in the winter I might get frost bit,
but nobody cares, not one little bit.
I do not eat and I will not live long,
so when you see a hobo remember this song.

Liam T. Dredd and Diaphanous Haze
Were married in not unusual ways.
They booked a cathedral, they made their vows,
Bought as much insurance as the state allows.
He called her Daffi, She called him Lee,
He wrote out their wills, she made them some tea.
"I'll sign the papers if you will," she said.
"A million if either of us drops dead."
"I have a confession, my dear," said he.
"Counting the others, you're Wife Number Three.
"My dear exes were strangled, drowned and shot,
They left me quite lonely, but left me a lot."
"How sad!" said Daffi with a secret smile,
"But at least your marriages were worthwhile.
"Now, my late husbands, of which there were four,
Never gave me a penny. That's why they're no more."
"It seems I'll be careful from now on," Lee sighed,
"For I've finally found my match in a bride.
"And speaking of matches, look under your chair,
I've hidden a clever bomb under there."
"Oh, I found it," said Daffi, "I'm afraid it's destroyed

A Red vs. Blue ChristmasTwas a cold, winters night, and down at blue base,A Red vs. Blue Christmas8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Life slowly went by at a monotonous pace;
Artillery was left without guard, and who cared?
Attack the blue base? Red Team wouldnt dare!
Down in the bunker Caboose and Church sat,
Wishing for something that they could shoot at.
While Tex in her grey and Sis in her yellow.
Hoped command would send out a more interesting fellow.
Then, to their surprise who should come running in?
Twas Tucker with an unhelpful look of chagrin.
Theyre just over the hill! He yelled in great haste.
To your posts! shouted Church, They will not take our base!
From the roof they could see the Reds getting quite close,
In their beat up Warthog and a couple of Ghosts.
From below, in the garage came an engine-like sound,
As Sheila drove out, and her gun swung around.
So, now what? said Caboose all these buttons are swell.
Oops, wrong one. And he cringed
Ode to CAKEI have feasted on all sorts of dates,Ode to CAKE5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
eaten food at alarming rates,
but no taste can compare to the taste fit to share:
a slice of luscious, chocolate iced CAKE.
You give me cookies, I'll shove them back into your face,
give me candy, I'll toss it away with much haste.
So don't let that food go to waste:
just give a large plate of CAKE!
CAKE is so devine,
it's fit to be mine.
It is oh, so fine.
Now, please, let me dine!
Now, don't turn our friendship to hate:
just give me that delicious, iced CAKE!
PunishmentThe police were out in force, sirens flashing everywherePunishment8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I didn't understand, I couldn't see how it was fair
I suppose it was my punishment for being such a fool
And I still regret the day that I peed in the swimming pool.
Very soon the whole world knew, I was on the evening news
Thousands came to talk to me, the journalists formed queues
I was being sent to jail, because I broke the golden rule
That at no cost must you ever pee in someone's swimming pool.
They collected water samples, fingerprints and DNA
And told me I was guilty; there was nothing I could say
I supposed that prison couldn't be a whole lot worse than school
But I wished beyond all words that I had not peed in the pool.
I was locked indoors all morning, I broke rocks all afternoon
It was torturing my mind, I really hoped I'd get out soon
We ran on treadmills every day, they fed us all on gruel
I suppose it was fair punishment for peeing in the pool.
They gave me a life sentence, I was never coming out
I slumped against
FrogsHop hop hop,Frogs11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Senses so keen.
With that tongue that I so love
Powerful legs to lift you above
My hands whilst I try to mend
My little froggy friend.
You sit by my pond,
Singing your froggy song,
That little croak, so distinct,
I wonder, could you live in my sink?
I'd like to keep you as a pet,
I'd always take you to the vet,
You'd be my favourite little froggy,
Much better than my dumb old doggy.
Unlike the French, I'm not so keen,
Of eating little leggies green,
I much prefer the alive you,
Rather than see you in a stew.
My little froggy friend,
You drive me around the bend,
You hop all over my garden path,
I'd even put you in my bath.
But I don't think you'd like the suds,
For froggies, they aren't so good,
You prefer the icky weed
Of my pond, where the cat has peed…
With your little toes, and wriggly eyes,
Eating bugs, and catching flies,
With your wiggly legs, and slimy skin,
I take you to the pond, and drop you in.
All froggies should be free,

I'm not a big fan:
It's too hot. But at least school

But, mercifully, it starts

Dennoch schenkte sie mir Liebe,
Traute mir, trotz meiner Triebe.
Ohne Hirn und ohne Sinn
Gab sie sich mir gänzlich hin.

Venen blutig aufgerissen.
Jämmerlich ist sie verreckt,
Immerhin, sie hat geschmeckt.

A KissDo you recall that day when you kissed someone special?A Kiss6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The time she gave your most awaited prize, a medal.
I mean, when the clock stopped, and you were alone with her.
And when you lost control of yourself and gasped for air.
You pulled her near, closer, until you became just one.
Your heart beat faster and you felt the heat of the sun.
And because it was your first time, you thought This is fun!
Those glaring blue eyes revived the Phoenix inside you.
You wanted her so much. And you just don't want to rest.
It was as if those fingers that traveled from your chest,
To your back, face, then intertwined with your hands like glue
Made you feel so conscious, happy, and satisfied too.
Her fragrance like roses or lavender, you can't tell.
She's like the devil and from her temptation you fell.
Those mouth-watering lips, you savored every tiny bit.
Inches to foot, slowly, you were falling to the pit.
And you were thinking, My body and soul, will I sell?
You stopped for a m

and took all my best thoughts
and all my favorite phrases,
and the bunnies with their plots,
she ran off with all the fluff stuff,
she ran off with the hero's sword--
she left me sitting here alone,
bemused and rather bored.
My muse went on vacation
To a sunny foreign clime,
and left me sitting here alone
without a word to rhyme,
She's laying on a beach somewhere
without a hint of snow,
and leaving me with winter's chill
and no place left to go.
My muse went on vacation -
I hope she's coming back
With a healthy tan, a rosy glow
and some fresh stuff to attack--
I miss her interaction,
how she drove me crazy mad,
how I teased her for the things she said
that came out rather bad.
But since my muse went on vacation
my writing's getting stale,
no smexy dancing dreams to write,
my words seem set on fail.
I promise not to tease her
if she'll only let me write -
O hurry home, bright redhaired girl,
or kiss career goodnight!

Can You Guess Who I Am?I have a little problemCan You Guess Who I Am?2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My head is made of wood
My brain is non existent,
I’d change it if I could.
My body’s made of wood too,
It’s hard to move around,
But if I do, I kinda make
a nasty clomping sound.
I don’t seem to have hearing.
Or have eyes that can see,
And yet I do not wish,
To be anyone but me.
Yes, really I am quite content,
Though I know I am a freak,
Immobile and non-sensing,
Without the means to speak.
But now and then a higher hand,
Waves above my head,
And magically I come to life,
No longer am I dead.
Who am I you may well ask.
Does anybody know?
I really cannot lie to you,
For my nose will surely grow.
