- 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)

Natural Phenomena

Volcano, power, respect it
Earthquake, power, respect it
Lightning, power, respect it
Fire, power, respect it
Flood, power, respect it
Hurricane, power, respect it
Addiction, power, respect it

Volcano kills, watch out
Earthquake kills, watch out
Lightning kills, watch out
Fire kills, watch out
Flood kills, watch out
Hurricane kills, watch out
Addiction kills, watch out

- First Job: : Humour

I’ll drive you to the shopping centre, Sandy’s grandma offered
Sandy gladly accepted the proposition her gran proffered
“I’ll just wait in the car”, said gran, “while you go in and inquire
About a job in those shops, surely someone will hire”

Nervously Sandy entered the big supermarket and walked through
Until a wooden shutter labelled “Office” came into view
Tentatively she knocked and up it was raised
Revealing a lady who looked in the midst of her menstrual phase

“Excuse me but I was wondering if you had any positions”
“No we don’t.” Down came the shutter, end of her mission.
Reluctantly she tried the smaller shops without any success
And returned to her gran in the car, rather distressed

“I didn’t get a job”, she sadly explained, feeling low
“Well I got you an interview at the supermarket”, her gran crowed
“But I knocked on the shutter and told no jobs, by a lady quite cross”
“Oh I walked straight past that and searched for the boss

And chatted to him about Bob, my son, your uncle, who delivered bread
To this supermarket, daily”, was what her gran said
And it was obvious that her grandmother was a real pro
Because she knew that sometimes it was all about who you know

(Sydney, Australia - 2007)

- She's A Beagle: : Humour

Brandy is a beagle
I've said a lot already
When you eat a tasty morsel
She can hold your gaze quite steady

Her eyes plead quite insistently
She only wants a little taste
Even if it's just a fallen crumb
That else would have gone to waste

Once you give her her heart's desire
Do you think that will stop her yearn
If you responded in the affirmative
Then you still have much to learn

She can smell a muffin
From miles and miles away
Leave it unguarded for a second
She thinks to herself 'Ole'

And when you return from your very brief jaunt
She will look up at you most innocently
Her dark brown eyes will stare at you
Not a single crumb in the vicinity

If she walks by a great big dog
She doesn't say a single word
Until she's safely passed it by
Then she barks like you have never heard

Teaching her how to use a dog flap
Does not always go as planned
You know that food will do the trick
But remember, Brandy is not bland

You place her gently outside the door
Then as you bend down to place the food
Her head bursts through, ears all askew
Oddly enough she's in a hungry mood

Her excitement when going on a walk
Cannot be surpassed
She may be greedy and disobedient
But she is a lovely little lass

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)
