Short Poems, Long Poems & Limericks

In summer hair lice go away

Heading on their holidays

But before they get to their resort

They must check-in at the hair port

 

Wigs on runways fuelled with shampoo

Lousy pilots and lousy crews

On planes of manes of human locks

Start the engines and remove the chocks

 

From bouncy curls

To greasy follicles

Some lice like clean hair

Others find it diabolical

 

And some lice don't fly

Their mortal dread?

Crash landing on

A hairless head!

Limericks

 

A goldfish that got flushed down the loo

Went through pipes all the way to Peru

He was caught by a farmer

Then transported by llama

To a new bowl in Machu Picchu

Featured Poem

 

“When will I stop growing?”

A giant asked his mummy

“I've grown at a rate

Of one meter a day

Ever since I left your tummy”

 

"That's 7 meters every week

Or 365 a year

Times twelve because it's

My birthday soon

Which makes 4380 meters quite clear"

 

“I hope that I stop growing”

The giant he did sigh

As he pulled a bird

Out of his ear

And a plane out of his thigh.
