Waiting for a bus
To come was known as a big
Pain in the butt and then some.

But that was before
I realized that it was
Better than driving a car.

Better than driving a car?
Surely nothing is but wait,
What about driving a bus?
I enjoyed that except when it was late.

What else could be better than driving a car?
I also liked driving a truck.
Considerably bigger by far
But driving through towns it could easily get stuck

How about driving a train?
Very different I'm sure you'll agree.
Driving through the pouring rain
Can make it difficult to see.

I've driven a bike
But what I didn't like
Was having to change my kit
Not one little bit.

So now I leave my home
And jump into my car
With the stereo turned on
Much better by far!

Much better by far,
is going to the bar.
Drinks galore,
and much, much more.

Vodka, lager, cider and rum!
Don't drink too much,
or the landlord will kick your bum!
That wouldn't be much fun.

"That wouldn't be much fun without Uncle
Clem spending Thanksgiving with us.",
Mom said to Dad before he
Sighed and said, "Fine! But we're
Not having any
Fried chicken this
Year... and I
Do mean
It!"

It is a place to start
It is a place to end
It is for when we're apart
It is for when we need a friend.
It can be here.
It can be there.
It can bring fear
It can make you aware
But what is It that can do anything?
What is It that anyone can do
Do you know what It is?
Whatever It is, I haven't a clue!

Whatever it is, I haven't a clue
About where it came from nor what
It's sole purpose happens to
Be on this planet of
Ours but I know for
Sure that it might
Be good for
All of

Us... humankind is all intertwined
Living on this huge blue ball
Spinning in space, without a care at all
Someday the sun will come too close
Then mankind will fry
And we will all die
Perhaps then...
We can start over again.

"We can start over again because
No matter how hard you try, you
Just can't escape the power
Of true love.", he said to
His ex-girlfriend just
Before they had
Each kissed one's
Warm, moist
Lips.

Lips,
are very important,
or so they say.
Northern, southern, it don't matter,
I'll like whatever they chatter.

"I'll like whatever they chatter as
Long as it's not about me!", said
Mike before Jeff walked into
The diner and asked, "When
Did we start letting
Chickens eat in
Here?", before
Mike slugged
Jeff.

Jeff
finds it difficult to write a poem
when the first line is just one word.
He wishes the poster above would stop it,
but I'm just wondering:
Who the hell is Jeff?

Who the hell is Jeff?
You said it
Loud and clear

And I agree

A one word
end

for a poem

repeated inevitably

Is

Shoud not, need not,

be repeated endlessly.

Yet it has been, for quite some time

Andrew, thank you

Hopefully this banality will decline

And we shall return to inspiring poetry
from graceull last lines

From graceful last lines
Of previous poems comes
The start of a fresh new one.

May it be one of
True love or something else, the
New poem would still be good.

New poem would still be good,
and so would food,
like wind on a fresh autumn day,
Hey!

A glimmer of light in winter
is much appreciated, too,
an ice lolly in summer,
and the ability to be with you
is just braw.

Rain, shine, name that weather,
come whatever season,
I will always want to be with you.

"I will always want to be with you.",
Said Jennifer to her lover Kevin just
Before they kissed each other while
They were standing near a waterfall.

They were standing near a waterfall.
Then they plummeted to their deaths.
It was 1983, a dull, boring day.
Nothing about it was gay,
there were just clouds of grey.
It rained that day,
their light was taken from the world that day;
they fell off a cliff.

They fell off a cliff
But were lucky enough to
Land in a pool of water.

After that, they both
Decided to go somewhere
Safe on their next vacation.

Safe on their next vacation,
or were they?
It was a staycation,
which didn't hold much elation,
for no matter where they go,
they just ain't safe.

Take the last vacation:
They fell off a cliff!
Before that, they entered Satan's bunghole
(that was a whiff!)
Never safe, they took the staycation,
at leas if they got killed at the station,
their funerals would be in the same country.
Unless they got sliced and diced...
...Oh, Christ!
And that's the end of the unlucky bunch!

"And that's the end of that unlucky
bunch.", said my pal Roy after he
showed me the mugshot of the
leader of a female
cat burglar gang who
got themselves caught
by the cops
one last
Spring.

Spring!
A thing,
Like a coiled ring.

Coiled in steel,
to make me feel
Like nothing is real.

And whilst I rarely agree with Gypsy, please stop the one word endings. They are a real thread killer.

Like nothing is real,
but he's starting to feel,
is he lost, or is he about to heal?
Only time will tell,
but I can say one thing:
His shell is not empty.

His shell is not empty
But nor is it full
It makes him so cross
That he roars like a bull

That he roars like a bull
and has the body of a man
does not mean that he could
really be seen by any human.

tho' invisible he may be,
Whatever you say, please take care
and be sure it is you he can see.

before I went on my lunch date
that was set up by my friend Kate.

He would only do it with Kate
And I hope I am right to say,
For life she will be his mate.

For life, she will be his mate
to love instead of to hate.

We know because of their bathtub
time in which they both kiss and scrub.

Then, after one bath, he would look at
her and ask, "Would you marry me, Kat?"

"Yes" was the answer that she gave him and
added a kiss that was indeed so grand.

We'll be going to the wedding soon but not
before she puts on a dress that's not too hot.
