Today I bought some cooking gear,
lamps, and stuff and then came here
to make a rhyme about it
I think I may have to forfeit.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

I've been helpng Mum & Dad their trees to clip, so today I'm taking the rubbish to the tip.
If I have time I shall see if there anything in their shop for me.
The tip sells the good stuff that folk throw out. It amazes me what's there and it costs next to nowt.
It's the first place to look if you need a new bike. There should be something there that you like.
I'm not proud and second hands great, it's just the queues at the gate that I hate.

This topic made me laugh so hard
That I felt I should try to start.
My own word-stock, though, seems so poor
That I found only the word 'moor"
To rhyme this damn lines with each other.
It seems to me that you would rather
Tell me to stop my fruitless tries
And that would not be too unwise
Because it is appears to me
Much harder than it seemed to be.
Oh no, I've made a stupid rhyme,
Which simpleness is like a crime.
So now I'm finishing my verses
And going to look for English courses.

The poetry seen here is very
good until we reach Leewerrey
For English is not their native tongue
and yet their poem is quite long.
For someone not an English speaker
to do this makes me feel much meeker.
If I was to try the same in Russian
I'd struggle to get the last line to rhyme
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

A short ode to veg to revive this thread.....it's worth a try to bring it back from the dead.

Sprouts - yuck....the devil's bum lumps. Put sprouts on my plate and I'll have the grumps
Now give me fresh peas straight out of the pod....a veg truely from heaven............if there were a God ;)
and carrots too, boiled roasted or grated....now there's a veg that makes me feel elated. :D
I don't mind sweetcorn or lettuce or peppers.......but sprouts - they are worse than sucking on lepers!

Another veg/fruit rhyme....which, sadly, is not mine......

An accident happened to my brother, Jim
Somebody threw a tomato at him!
Tomatoes are soft and don't hurt your skin,
But this one was specially packed in a tin!
