The Throne

Composed 4/11/17
Description: While I work on a few more serious pieces, have a bit of random inspiration. Where do you find yourself working on your creative pursuits? For NaPoWriMo.

The only time I have to be alone
Is on this throne
So leave me be
As I write sweet toilet poetry

Hard Lessons

Composed 7/14/15
Description: For today’s Daily Prompt: Well, I Never… In which we are describe something we’ve done that we would advise a friend never to do. This is the first thing I thought of. I hope you heed my sage advice.

Life has taught me much, dear friend
In the mere years I’ve been here
I took my trade in people
And I’ve fought some paralyzing fears
I’ve known sickness
I’ve known health
I’ve strolled the streets near poverty
And brushed the bushes of some wealth
Admirations I’ve known
And hated I’ve been
Often a good girl
I’ve danced with sin
In the shadows I’ve hid
On the stage I have sung
I have made some good laughs
And hung with my tongue
My life thus far has been a wise mix
Though the best lesson learned I learned at six
While fun those little petting zoos
Don’t stand behind donkeys in an angel costume

It’s January Again

Composed 12/29/13
Description: My intended entry for a poetry contest at wePoets Show It. The theme of the contest is “New Years Resolutions with humor.”

I originally saw the link to the contest from http://scottishmomus.wordpress.com/. I immediately loved the site, and all the opportunities they give.  So I thought I’d give the contest a shot.  Comedy might not be my best genre, but I could win an Amazon gift card, so why not? I’d do almost anything for an Amazon gift card.

Hope you enjoy!

Oh my, it’s here
That time of year
To dawn sweat pants
Get my butt in gear

Up at eight
To the gym at nine
Feeling great
And looking fine!

Kicking bad habits
Sorry, aspartame
I’m throwing my soda
Down the drain!

Cake, cookies
Chocolate moose
I’ll be trashing
You guys too

I’ll miss you
Ice cream, pumpkin pie
But I’m also kicking
Fat goodbye

So I’m off to strengthen up my core
And empty all the kitchen drawers
Wait
Mom with truffles at the door?
Well
Maybe
Just one more
