I never really liked poetry until one day I decided to write a poem on this very blog. It wasn’t a funny poem as such, more about the difference between young and old and centered around blogging. I called my first poem Blogs, Blogging, Young Man Old Man, Never The Twain Shall Meet. Yeah, I know, the title is a little long, but like I said it was my first poem. Poetry comes in handy at times when you want to vent your frustration, like the time I wrote the Google Sucks poem. Who know’s, perhaps some of you will find that funny. Then there was the one called, Man’s Struggle To Control His Urges, which I meant to be a funny poem. Then there was My Passionate Encounter which I really meant to be a funny poem. You can see all my poems here. Enough about my poetry, this post isn’t all about me, it’s about a short and truly funny poem, one called Timbuktu! This funny poem actually comes with a story on how it all came about. Timbuktu – A Funny Poem The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists – a university graduate and…

Hey guys, I reckon you’ve noticed my Christmas theme? It’s all thanks to the versatility of Flexsqueeze. Speaking of Christmas I thought it was time I wrote another Christmas poem. My first Christmas poem as in way back in 2010! My second Christmas poem was a couple of years later in 2012. Now it’s 2015 and so I thought it was about time I came produced another Christmas poem. I normally don’t have too much of a problem publishing some of my poetry, but when it comes to writing religious poetry I’m my own worst critic! It just never seems good enough! Anyway, after much head scratching, rewording, editing, crossing out and trepidation I managed to come up with my latest Christmas poem. The Story Of Christmas Allelujah! A King is born in Bethlehem With innocent eyes he gazes at them Three wise men journeyed from afar Lead all the way by a shining star Bearing gifts for the birth of His Son A star their guide since their journey begun A gift of gold for their King to be Frankincense to worship whilst on one knee Myrrh to celebrate His sacrifice Paying for the sins of man’s vice Much to…

Seeing how today is Halloween and all I thought I would post another scary Halloween poem. This is my third scary Halloween poem. The first scary Halloween open was Home Alone On Halloween. My second scary Halloween poem was Screams of Halloween and I wrote that about three years later onOctober 2012. I just finished today’s, my latest scary Halloween poem and I’m going to share it with you now. Witches Ghouls And Ghosts A Scary Halloween Poem Its Halloween, sun a setting The ghouls and demons are fretting So much to do so little time Lest they forget the yucky slime Witches, their cauldrons stirring Their evil black cats purring Black hats and brooms just sitting Evil spells the witches knitting To catch unwary children ringing With empty sweet bags swinging Not knowing what waits behind the door Perhaps not candy but ghastly gore Are there vampires, fangs just dripping Blood from victims they’re gripping Bodies strewn across the floor Of kids in costumes who rang before Goblins and Ghosts I’m sure await behind the door to deal their fate To the unsuspecting costumes wearing hoping for candy from their scaring Not knowing what monsters they’ll meet While visiting…

Hey guys, it’s Christmas Eve and even though I’ve noticed that it’s been really quiet of late I thought that I would post a Christmas poem. I’ve written a fair few poems in my day but only one that had a Christmas theme.  That poem, A Bloggers Christmas Wish, Love And Peace To All, has received a lot of traffic leading up to Christmas and I thought it would be a great idea to write another one. It’s probably not my best work but then I’ve left it a little late and being in the retail industry I have to leave for work soon, yes, even on Christmas Eve.  This one is a little different from the last one but it still has a message that I would like my readers to consider. I hope you enjoy it. Most importantly, I want to wish everyone and their families a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. The Day Before Christmas It’s Christmas Eve, the day’s still young Must check the list to see if all is done The Christmas tree is up and all adorned The presents placed and the children warned Not to touch the presents until Christmas day…
