A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

There’s an old saying

That the pen is

Mightier than the sword

But I’m more afraid

Of the white stuff

Underneath the written word


Now I’ve never had

A limb lopped off

Or felt a swift blade’s sting

But I know all too well

The pain that a well-placed

Paper cut can bring


So put away

Your pens and swords

And unsheathe your finest sheaf

For a battle not of wits

Or knightly fits

But of pain beyond belief!

Paper Cuts

A girl who once chewed too much bubblegum

Found that her habit was troublesome

Blowing bubbles so bloated

She hovered then floated

To a space telescope – the Hubble one!

Featured Poem

Big T and the Piggies

Are a gang as tough as nails

Hairy and pink

They created a stink

And got themselves thrown in jail


Inside a one foot prison cell

Inside a cotton cage

Bound in leather

And tied with a knot

They were sentenced to sweat for an age


But now they’re free

They’re going to market

To fight a rival gang

On the mean streets

A pair of mean feet

Where Big T and the Piggies hang.
