Strange Bathfellows

A spider traipsed onto my knee
While I was reading in the bath
Though most might jump and scream and flee,
I just gave a little laugh

A baby Daddy Long-Legs!
(Though really, 'twas just a son)
I shooed him back onto his web,
And continued reading on...

*title is a spin on "Strange Bedfellows" ;)

*Lessons in life are funny contest entry

A Scholars Demise

There once was a man, a scholar became
He had a great many books to his name
They fell on his head
And then he was dead
They said, "He only had his shelf to blame"

A Bawdier Charles Dickens

Yesterday I swear I saw Charles Dickens
His quaint style today would take a lickin' --
   So he's changed up the Dodger
   Now he's the 'Artful Todger' --
He whips it out ~ the plot really thickens

Learning - a Good Investment

A lazy student known as Burt, 
To parents and teachers was curt.
        With little knowledge,
        Flunked out of college;
Played stock market and lost his shirt!

Satan's hallucinations made him giggle,
Numbers and letters made to wiggle,
Satan arose one morning,
A day on Earth a'dawning,
Satan spake from far above,
Fist in his iron glove...
" I mix numbers and letters,
To make mathematics better,
Evermore there shalt be...

Yes, numbers and letters made to wiggle,
Satan's hallucinations made him giggle.

Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy,
approximately 800 redundant pages
of Kafkaesque scoffing
at relentless banalities of economic and political elitists.

Rather like transcribing often inebriated conversations
within the all-night celebration scenes
of a Republican National Party Convention,

Or, sadly, a Democratic National Party Convention
only maybe about 400 condensed
impacted pages
with the remainder quite liberally
and anti-climatically inscrutable
as planned obsolescence
and well-organized chaos.

You send bolts through my skin 
something I was never to 
accomplish with you, when I 
saw you it's like my heart sank 
to my stomach and I was in 
shock my body still my body 
heavy felt like when I moved I 
was about to fall to my knees 
you make me want to get 
inside my brain pick you up and 
take you out pick you one by 
one like a flower because I do 
love you and love you not.

Word Games

A noun
It stands on solid ground
And may not want to fool around
With a verb who’d need to prove
That it could rouse it, make it move.
An adjective might think it best
To decorate it, get it dressed.
And prepositions, have you heard?
Connect them to another word.
Yet out of all the nouns I’ve known
Some prefer 
To stand alone.
The End.

My Dear Subjects

Omg! What to write
Science, math wanna fight
You are world to many
But in you I am fazy
Science was favorite
"Was" not "is"
I don't know why
Science, math wanna fight
Welcome math
Trap of formulas
Can't remember even one
Omg! I wrote so much
Sorry my dear subjects
We cannot live together
The day will come
When I'll be in 11
We'll leave each other
I'll remember 2018
Our break-up year.

That Devious Rogue

Livid I was when that nincompoop
stained that page of my book
with tomato sauce, while eating
oh! How horrible! How horrible!
It was just a little dot but still;
definitely not easy to tolerate,
since I am a bibliophile,
enamoured with poetry and essays,
being my idols William Topaz McGonagall
and the Irish-speaker Robert Wilson Lynd!
Oh! It was just a little stain which
blurred no text, made nothing illegible,
but still! My anger ceases not
and I call that man a true clown!

Reading a Book

Today I was reading one of the best books,
And was deep in the fantasy world until shook.
Then I glanced at the time,
Surprised to see it was already nine.
I can definitely say I am addicted to reading a book.

Children's Books

I want to write children’s books under an alias name
So if you can help you’ll get some financial gain
It’s got to be weird and funny
And make lots of money
But if it won’t I know it’s you I can blame

As I went to get published,
Stopped for ale and grub.
At a place called the Longfish;
Which is a great pub.

Well that first book it got scrubbed;
Thrown in the rubbish.
So now when I seek a pub,
It must end in lish.

Dorian Gray


There was a man called Dorian Gray
Who tried hard not to get old and gray 
So a swap he just did
Portrait wrinkles did rid 
Till his rotten flesh ate it away.

No Nookie For Me

My books sit on the shelf right there,
               not a Nook or electronic gear.
I’d rather have the feel and smell
               of printed pages I love so well.
A book's battery will never die,
               refuse to load on the fifth try.
Can hand it off to a good friend,
               maybe to family might send,
pass along to sis or brother
               or to stranger to discover.
Can write my notes or get it signed,
               for that’s what it was so designed.
Or keep it till it’s the end of me,
               without paying another fee.

No Green Eggs and Hamburger


it's always been rumored 
that Dr. Seuss had an 
illegitimate child. 
to the masses, it was a 
treasure hunt. 
there was no 
it's been said that 
when found, she'd continue 
his work and provide the 
people with the next great 
American novel. 
I went into McDonald's.
I got to the cashier and 
she took my order. 
giving me the total, she asked, 
"would you like it here or there?"
America can thank me now, 
I've wrapped that sucker up 
and it's ready to be shipped.

I Am Bored With Books

Books were interesting
Books were short
Books were fun to read along
But now words have become hard to read
So confusing like beads and seeds
No monitor light
To make them stand out bright
No friends to say hello
While reading a page from Longfellow
If got stuck on a word unknown
No automatic dictionary to let it be known
No multiple windows to pass thru
When mind wavers and need other brew
Books once lead me to other lands
Now with internet I have many hands
I am bored with books, I really am
For they aren’t ships that sail the seas
Only dust collectors made of trees
