The Bard of Lard Doth Rhyme it Hard

Ask me that which I hold dear and I should answer twice:

Family first, then ice cold beer, would, I think, suffice.

Family for I love them so, they bring me no small pleasure;

Beer is much the same you know – good company in my leisure.

Now ask me what to do without and I would answer thrice:

Broccoli, Hip-Hop, rainbow trout, exact a heavy price.

The first and third both smell like crap; to eat them is a sin,

The second because it sucks to rap, like a Hoover that’s plugged in.

Then ask me what goes through my skull before I start to write

Not so much; I’m pretty dull, a dollar store night light.

Pray bags of gold for all my friends, each time I start to type

Instead I offer my Depends, the only fruit that’s ripe.

And finally ask me why I rhyme instead of usual story,

and I will say “It takes less time,” and “My, that blouse is whorey.”

You other bloggers sure do post a lot; where do you find the time?

Today I choose to save on thought. It’s easier to rhyme.

    “Do not reply,” I tell myself,
    “You’ve better things to do.”
    But, so impressed am I, dear Richard,
    Only two references to poo!

    • Were there two? I admit that I talk a bit much about sacs and boys and ish, but it’s really all I’ve got. Just so you know, it’s only because I like you that I let others see your superior poetry, and I’m glad you have better things to do than to reply to me. How rude…

  4. Silliness may occur at this sight – that was just fun 🙂

  5. I hit you again because you’re just so funny so nominated you for The One Lovely Blog Award. If interested, please visit my site at Have a great day!

    Very nice! At least you get something out – I haven’t written in forever and am starting to feel a bit guilty about it. My excuse is that now that the sun is shining, the idea of sitting inside at my laptop seems a waste of what might be the last sunny day, and we all know that laptops don’t work well outdoors. Maybe I should take to night-time writing?

    • I agree that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of time of late, though there’s plenty of sunshine to go around here(105F yesterday). Night-time is good, if your other half doesn’t mind the dis!
