My Internet Lamp Purchase
I just bought this lamp on the internet
The firm sounded good (great website)
The reviews they were good (plenty of them)
So thought I gotta have one, too right
I gave them my online bank details
(Hundred bucks) which did seem a bit rich
But the site got good writeups, seemed reputable
So I thought looks OK, be no hitch

I am an age-old newbie
I write amusement, fun
Don't dare come near me doom and gloom
You getting cranky hun?

I Am a Little Gusher
I am a little gusher
Gusher with a G
Gushing here and gushing there
In my poetry
I am a monster stomper
Stomper with an S
I like to stomp on little gushers
STOMP....there's now one less
I am a writer/satirist
Writing things to share it
Behaviours will attract my pen
If your cap fits then wear it

These days I don't contribute much
On WOL why's that? Becos
I've bought a house in FCS
Signed me, down here in Aus
For C Sake ?...

Whatever will whatever will
Whatever will will be
But I am gonna, yep, survive
Even if it kills me

I promise to behave myself
Now I've come back to roost
I'll hold my pen accountable
I will not let it loose
We don't believe you....
Oh ye of WOL of little faith
I am a new-born man
Had all my mischief cleansed (now gone)
No more I mischief can
(As promised) A Poet Don Report ...

After much in-depth discussion, we, the Management of Flippant, Comic, and Serious (FCS) have made the un-heard of decision of loaning our chief news reporter Poet Don to WOL (Write Out Loud).
WOL is the home of Poet Don's maker (we understand his maker still has his room there for occasional visits)...

One Platform Two Uses
A poetry site can be used
As a platform to encourage
Comment and discussion
Or to inflate the ego

Wherefore is thy sting madame?
Wherefore is thy venom?
I see you're wearing dearest brand?
Dearest brand of denim?
High class bitch....

Where have you gone to Poet Don
Built base on 'nother planet
Where Thale and I can frolic free
With no-one round to ban it
No disrespect to WOL Thought Police. They do a good job keeping all the WOL larrikins in order.
Promotion of competition websites on WOL is not allowed Don.
