"There's a burglar in the house !"Jane screams to Jake.

"He's just eaten half of my newly cooked cake!"

"Oh my goodness ,"Jake shouts,"I'd better ring 999 !"

"The ambulance will be with you soon,"said the medic on the line.

Age definitely mattered

Tim a bachelor with lots of money,

Planned a holiday to somwhere sunny.

He met a gorgeous girl who was only thirty,

Well dressed,well spoken and terribly flirty.


He brought her home to live in his house,

His friends were mesmerized by his new "spouse".

Newly retired at the age of sixty-five,

They all hoped his relationship would survive.


They asked,"How did you at...

Finally Sid's bid did win

Sid went to an auction wasn't sure what to buy,

But a rather fine looking parrot caught his eye.

The bidding was fierce it made quite a lot,

But finally the winning bid Sid got.


Exhausted to the payment desk Sid did walk,

On the way asked the auctioneer if the parrot could talk.

"Yes ,"said the auctioneer,"he is one of a few,

He was the one bidding against you."

Cannibal caff !!

I passed a sign outside a caff,

A sign that made me really laugh.

Monday .Fried chicken.

Tuesday.Pork chops.

Wednesday .Roast  lamb.

Thursday.Roast beef.

Friday,Senior citizens.


Are senior citizens any good to eat ?

Too much bone and not much meat.

I hope it won't be my fate,

To end up on a Cannibal caff plate.

Don't drink and drive !!

Three lads were out on the town,

The drinks they kept putting down.

One passes out and hits the ground,

One goes to the bar to buy the next round.

"What's he having there, lying  on the floor?"

"Oh he's drivng,can't have anymore."

It's good to laugh. Keep laughing !

Jim leaving the pub a bit worst for drink,

Next step the cinema ,he did  think.

He buy's a ticket and staggers inside,

Soon  to buy another he did decide.


Two minutes later he's back buying a third,

The ticket office girl thought this was absurd .

Jim says,"Everytime I go in a bloke tears my ticket in half !"

The girl in the ticket office had a good laugh.

Bill and the ducks

Bill was speeding in a truck with a bunch of ducks in the back,

A policeman pulls him up and  gives him loads of flack.

"I just don't  know what to do with these ducks anymore !"

To the zoo down the road the cop advised him to go.

Next day Bill drives down the road and the policeman passes,

This time all the ducks are in the back wearing designer sun glasses.

"It is obvious the z...

I hate school !

"Get up you lazy boy,

Staying at home should not be your ploy !" 

"But mum I don't want to be there anymore,

The kids are bullies,the teachers terrible,work's a chore."

"Eat your breakfast and go in you fool,

Your 50 years old and head of the school !"

Friday the 13th

Jane was racing down the motorway in her new car,

Foot on the accelerator,over the speed limit by far.

Jane purchased the car because her abusive husband had left,

In prison serving a long sentence for theft.


Suddenly a blue light appeared from behind,

It was on the cards for her to be banned and fined.

The cop looked tired and said,"It's Friday the 13th ,I've had a bad day,

"Are bugs good to eat?"

John asks his dad Pete.

"That's a disgusting question to  ask ,get real !"

They both carried on enjoying their meal.

Later,"Now why did you ask me that question  John?"

"There was a bug in your meal,but now it's gone."

"I gave up drinking in the 2nd lockdown, a return to normality"

"I reached for a bottle every single day,

Working at home in the first lockdown,less structure to my day.

My hangovers were getting really bad,

To feel better,more drinks at lunchtime I had.


A shot of alcohol I needed to make me shine,

It dulled my senses ,I was trapped by this habit of mine.

Drink dulled my senses and falsely overcame my stress,

Diminishing my ability to...

No longer a dunce. Well done !!

The teacher was asking tricky questions in her class.

Most of them had done well in their exams and secured a pass.

"How many times can you subtract ten  from a hundred?"

All the answers were incorrect,they'd truly blundered.

But the correct answer came from the class dunce. 

"The next time you would be taking ten from ninety.So once !"

Two ghosts caught trick or treating on Halloween

Two ghosts were trick or treating on Halloween,

They were pretending to be kids,that was mean !

But luckily they were not sucessful in what they tried to do,

Because they were so easy to see through.

Heads or tails-Trump or Biden ?

I tossed a coin to see who would be president.

Who would be the next White House resident.

Heads for Biden,tails for Trump.

Up in the air the coin did jump.


Heads it fell upon the floor,

Trump is president no more.

Don't dither and delay ,make covid go away. Close schools

Schools should be shut ,

For infections  to be cut.

Schools are a major contributor to the spread,

A hype in September on their return ,I did dread.


Disaster struck straight away,

Schools must close to make lockdown pay.

Keeping schools open definitely will,

Lead to a longer lockdown still.


Schools have to be shut to avoid disaster,

Please don't let covid becom...

He's 93 and I'm 94.

We've been together since 1953,

We never argue or disagree.

Armed police called out in Westminster !

Going out with uncle John was a danger,

In Westminster he embraced a complete stranger.

Armed police were called out,

To sort things out.

Thinking the P.M.'s life was in danger.

He had a whale of a time

There once was a Welshman from Ebbw Vale,

Who  wanted to have a good ride on a whale.

They returned from the ride with the Welshman inside,

And a smile on the face of the Whale.

A rush to his funeral

Father John was on his way to the crematorium,

He was flagged down by a lady near the Emporium.

She asked,"Can you tell me where the hospital is,I'm a nurse?

He told her and then waved at a passing hearse.


"I'm sorry I'm going to have to go."

Not wearing any clerical clothes his occupation she did not know.

"That is my funeral I must get there really fast."

Happy Halloween from Amelia the young witch from Sabden Lancashire

Amelia lived in Sabden and was a witch,

In school she was unpopular and was  called a bitch.

This troubled her very much,

Her class mates were cruel and out of touch.


But belonging to a witch family was not so bad,

Her mum was a witch and so was her dad.

Her dad would drive safely in the back seat,

Her mum while at work would make her house neat.


There was always ...

A deeply depressed witch deprived of trick or treating in tier three

I am a witch in tier three,

No trick or treating for you and me !

Around my neighbourhood I cannot zoom,

Depressed and dismal in a pool of gloom.


I'm sometimes described as a bad tempered witch,

I fly off the handle and become a bitch.

When at school I frequently rebelled, 

On two occasions I was ex-pelled.

The only subject I did really well,

Was English where I lea...

A heart-warming act of kindness by Sally Anne an N.H.S Nurse

"I got my sheepdog 5 years ago from 93 year old Alan Leek.

Due to enter a carehome a new home for Cap he did seek.

Five years on I thought how lonely he might be,

I just wanted to bring joy into his life and his old friend to see.


"On my trip up to Kendal I covered 300 mile,

Seeing the look on Alan's face made it all worthwhile.

Alan was so happy and Cap was happy too,

A grave Halloween tale

Lyn became an undertaker after being a nurse.

Much less stressfull driving a hearse.

Her husband Jim passed by the cemetry one day,

Noticed a new fence, a queue  and quite a delay.

"Why have they built a new fence Lyn?"

"Because people are dying to get in."

I am here because I was abused by a thug.

He's in a warm bed after abusing me,

But wrapped in my blanket,I'm feeling free.


Free from abuse and trauma at home,

Round the streets with my back pack I  roam.

Life on the streets can be tragic,

But the generosity of the kind is magic.

Covid and the witch

The covid witch is here to stay,

No sign of her going away.

All over the world she casts her spell,

An invisible curse,a door to hell.


Fever,cough ,headache and sore throat,

No cure yet, the witch does gloat..

But a turning point came in her life,

To put an end to the covid strife.


All her life she had been a tractor fan,

But while driving one she crashed into ...

The fat will fly off in leaps and bounds."


When Jude returned , twenty pounds she had shed,

An addiction to cycling and exercising my dog

I jump into my hundred pound car,

With dog,drink and bounty bar.

We drive to the canal and unload my bike,

And hit the tow path doing what we like.


Dog runs along by my side,sometimes ahead, 

The fresh air and variety brings joy to each head.

We proceed for an hour at a sensible pace,

Both suitably satisfied and feeling ace.


We seek a bench and relax at our destin...
