- It's All Relative: : Humour

My mother’s brother’s sister’s name is Grace
She’s my aunt and likes to go from place to place
My mother’s sister’s brother’s name is Brad
He’s my uncle and he is my cousin’s Dad

My grandmother on my mother’s side
Is my maternal gran, she is my grandfather’s bride
She also is my father’s mother-in-law
And not surprisingly they often go to war

My cousin is the nephew of my mother
His father happens to be my mother’s brother
My aunty’s niece is in fact myself
If you're confused please don't look at me for help

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)

Monsters Inc

In the movie Monsters Inc, the monsters were scary
Some were green, some unclean, some were hairless, others hairy
To scare little children was the task they performed
And the terrified screams emitted into electricity transform

But these frightening monsters themselves, ironically
Were petrified of little children something chronically
Because they thought they'd die from a child's slightest touch
Even if it was just the merest of an accidental brush

Though as it turned out it was all just a lie
These monsters could safely touch children and never happen to die
Now you may think what I'll say next is extremely annoying
You may think that my logic is exasperatingly cloying

You may wish that I would keep all these thoughts inside my head
You may think that this poem is better off unread
But I would like to point out, at risk of raising your dander
I'll just say it out now with my usual candour
That the monster who is terrified of a tiny little popette
Is just like a smoker who's frightened of not having a cigarette

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)

- The Dining Table: : Humour

I have some friends, a man and wife
I'll tell you a bit about their life
So that you can get a grip
On what constitutes a relationship

I visited them a short time ago
Looked down with shock and had to know
Why their dining table's smooth veneer
Carefully protected for at least a year

With coaster, placemat for all food and drink
To not use such a thing would be unthink
Was christened with not just a little mark
But that there was an unsightly gouge in this bark

'What happened here? ' I questioned Sue
She seemed to have something else to do
I looked at Vince but he turned away
No information would he convey

I needed answers so back to Sue I turned
How this happened would be learned
Sheepishly she mumbled an argument began
Her anger built but she had a plan

To place her plate upon said table
With as much force as she was able
So that no damage would be done
But still make a statement, and the battle won

She didn't count on her husband's reaction
To be sure of complete satisfaction
His coffee mug had to smash down hard
And alas we have our table, scarred

(Sydney, Austrlalia - 2006)

- Where Are My Glasses? : : Humour

Where are my glasses, where did they go?
I’ve searched high, and I’ve searched low
I looked on the shelf and behind the TV
Where, oh where can my glasses be?

I’ve looked on top of the table, behind the door
Inside the cupboard and inside the drawer
Beside the lounge and under it too
I went outside and checked inside an old shoe

I walked down the hallway and up the stairs
In front of me was a bicycle lying right there
I walked around it and jumped over the toys
Left there by those most lazy of boys

I walked past a doorway, then crawled through a hole
Which led to a cupboard that only contained bowls
I’ve looked everywhere, under each and every bed
The only place I forgot was on top of my head

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)
