Rapid rhyme #12

MOZZIES

These mozzies won’t listen to reason

when told that they’re not welcome here

With all of this new global warming

it’s tropical diseases I fear!

 

It used to be just the odd nibble

a swelling that itched or was sore

but with all of this new global warming

there’s hillocks and mountains and more

 

I’ve been eaten alive by the beasties

they sneak everywhere on my skin

They pause, then they bite, then they suckle

and I didn’t say they could come in

 

With all of this new global warming

I fear I’m condemned to succumb

Well, would you believe what just happened

I’ve been bitten all over my bum!

 

I may have to voluntarily admit myself to some sort of clinic!

On checking the number of the previous Rapid rhyme, in order to number this one, I find that #11 also featured the word “bum”. Not only that, but Lundi limerick #48, and #49 also had bums in them!

Do I need help, or is this just a feature of getting older?

Rapid Rhyme #6

This poem was inspired by Colleen’s post Not alone. On looking back, I find that my last Rapid Rhyme was also inspired by Colleen whose magnificent blog you can find here.

If you have not read anything of C Faherty Brown’s words, nor seen her delightful, and insightful, drawings, then I would recommend that you delve into them. Her books, too, are a joy, and her latest, “The Sentinel”, also features a tree. It truly is a magnificent story which, uncharacteristically, features not a single picture. The words themselves are picture enough.

This is what Colleen inspired:

By the tree

in the tree

playfully

you and me

went on dates

__.__

Girl and boy

fun ahoy

boy oh boy

what a joy

consummates

__.__

Shared a life

man and wife

free from strife

love was rife

best of mates
