Ever trendy, Always knitting Something fitting. Hudson, Simon Working on his rhyming. Not got it right yet, Graphics is a better bet. A Littlefair called Gail, Often goes beyond the pale. A canny Glesga lass, Always as bold as brass. That massive hulk Chris Bygott Would make a ****** good pirate. But he loves table tennis and fishing: For success he’s always wishing. He hasn’t done too bad, Done even better than Dad. Paul Butters © PB 9\4\2020.

Quiet Beatle by comparison Kermit the Frog was one of his peeps Still his guitar gently weeps
6/11/2019 - Poetry form: Clerihew - When George Harrison was on Saturday Night Live on November 20, 1976, Jim Henson also had a spot on the show and his Muppets appeared on a regular basis during that season. The opportunity arose for George and Kermit to meet. - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2019

10/17/2019 - Bon Appétit ! Poetry form: Epulaeryu - A poem that is entirely about food. It has seven lines with a grand total of thirty-three syllables. The meter of the poem is set so that it is, 7/5/7/5/5/3/1. The poem is supposed to revolve entirely around the dish. Each line is supposed to present information about it. The end of an Epulaeryu poem ends with an exclamation point because the poem itself is about the writer's excitement and enjoyment toward the dish that they are writing about. The final line, the one-syllable word is meant to sum up the feelings that the writer has. The Epulaeryu poem is a way to express these positive feelings about food and is a fun way to do so. - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2019 - Bon Appétit !
Clara Oswald Who
Secret wife of Doctor Who Returned from September's honeymoon By way of last year's month of June
5/16/2019 - Poetry form: Clerihew - This is my first ever Clerihew, so I decided to write about Clara Who. What's that you say? It's not proper to use "Who" in the second line to rhyme with "Who" in the first line? Thanks for telling me. Who knew? I have time for a few more questions. What took the Doctor and Clara so long to tie the knot? They couldn't decide on a date. What's their favorite pastime? (Get it?) Time travel. When do they find the time to time travel? It's irrelevant. Ok. I'm done now.
Didn’t write any Tweets Nor ever undertook To post on Facebook Percy B. Shelley Sailed the Don Juan to sea Where a monstrous storm seen rarely Robbed Frankenstein’s Mary His friend, Lord Byron, Watched the beach with his pyre on And then, on a whim, He went for a swim William Shakespeare Loved his wife so sincere That he willed her when dead His second best bed Sir Wilfred Owen Wrote a **** spiffing poem And he might well have wrote more Had he outlived the war Robert Frost Got hopelessly lost When for giggles and a laugh He took the wrong path Emily Dickinson Needed hope to cling on, So for lack of lucky heather She clutched an old feather William Blake Saw the tiger, too late, And he felt a cold shiver As it ate his liver
Good old Norman,
Thank goodness he’s normal. Unlike many a friend, He hasn’t gone round the bend. Stevens is his surname: He never plays the Blame Game. Such a decent chap And never utters *******. Whoops, I had to miss that rhyme, To avoid committing a bit of a crime. Norm is quite the hero, And something of a Shakespearo. He’s maybe my biggest fan, From England to Japan. Reading poems from me, Right there on his Smart TV. So Norman enjoy your beer, As I will always be here. Paul Butters © PB 1\12\2018.
My weekday drinking chum.
Is no chump. Makes America rich, Without any hitch. Says what he thinks, And never even blinks. Kowtows to no-one: Just gets the job done. Paul Butters © PB 15\10\2018.
To balance out my last Trump Clerihew.....
Sure packs a thump. For America First He does his worst. Paul Butters © PB 8\10\2018.
