You think you're clever
but I read you like
the prettiest little poem.
Red hair flickering the
edges of paper like
matchsticks.

I am clever enough to know not to 'bite the hand that feeds' me
But between you and me;
I am no ones bitch.

Leonardo Lollini Nov 2014

To you I say never
I will use you forever
I know what your about
I will take you out
And show you around
For you I have found

Take a banana
Peel it
Dice it
Put it aside

If you thought this
Was a recipe
It is
For a disaster

Take a banana
Peel it
Dice it
Put it inside

A little clever poem on bananas

If all the good people were clever,
  And all clever people were good,
The world would be nicer than ever
  We thought that it possibly could.

But somehow 'tis seldom or never
  The two hit it off as they should,
The good are so harsh to the clever,
  The clever, so rude to the good!

So friends, let it be our endeavour
  To make each by each understood;
For few can be good, like the clever,
  Or clever, so well as the good.

Beautiful poem by Elizabeth Wordsworth, thanks to Bucky Fuller - The critical path

Clever memory,
Must you float away from me,
Leaving me chasing,
Something that was temporary given to me,
Clever thought in my mind,
Giving graciously all to me,
Taking up all this time,
Please don't leave me to forget,
The best thing I had,
Don't leave me now,
But for now you stay,
In the back of my mind,
Teasing me with fading away,
You clever little memory.

You are a clever thing to say.
A funny thought stand still...

I don't want to kill myself and leave my kids
without a father,
alone,
like me.

I'd better do it now then.
The color palette isn't bright anymore.
A fatherless man is just guessing.
(To be honest.)

i have little cat and he lives with me
he his very clever a clever cat is he
one day i went shopping and i had lost my key
i looked everywhere but  my key i couldnt see
i thought about my cat being all alone
i was stuck outside stood there on my own
but my cat was clever and noticed my spare key
he opened up the letterbox and handed it to me
next time i go out i shall leave my key next door
then i can still get in and lose my key no more

Such a clever man
He was full of eloquence
And goobledegook

Clever Trevor likes to surprise
When he was born he shouted Hi!
I'm Trevor, glad to be aboard
And look, I'm wearing a mortar board!

They gave him a part in the Christmas play
As baby Jesus the divine
He took to it like a duck to water
Which of course he turned to wine

Mum took him to the beach to play
Let's be normal just for a day
He dug a hole in the sand
Drained the sea away

He likes to throw stones,
Never missing a target
He aimed for the moon one fateful night
Knocked it out of orbit

A keyboard wizard,
If he got a bit bored
He could start a third world war

So come on Trevor, please do something good
Help us out here, I wish you would

What is going on with this fucked up superiority?
Discriminating because I am some kind of cultural minority

Acting like you trust me when the two of us are together
But when your friends come around you run off to something better

To all of society you pretend you're not smoking your weed
When you roll your joint you're high just like me

Eating dinner with your parents you talk like a virgin
On the weekends, though, you give in to teenage urging

If only you would take off that mask and see,
That when it comes down to it you're no different than me.

We breathe the same air,
though yours may cost more
And when we go to school
we walk through the same doors

Maybe your hair is more blond
And your nails are a little cleaner,
Or you play fancy sports,
So you look a little leaner

I don't have a credit card,
or hang out at the country club
I work for what I want
And am proud of my pay stubs

So, have some consideration, it's not really that tough
We all know your life is easy, but some people have it rough.

If only we could learn that empathy is the goal
Maybe you could act like you actually have a soul.

there was a little dog as clever as can be
he  did lots of tricks for everyone to see
he could roll a barrel while he was on the top
then use it little legs to make the barrel stop
he could roll a ball with his little paws
throw it in the air and catch it with his jaws
a clever little chap as clever chap was he
doing lots of tricks as happy as can be
