There was young man called Fred,

Who woke up one morning dead.

He heard a bell ring ,

And the angels did sing.

Thankfully to heaven he was led.


Cancelled contract

There was a young man from Colne,

Who spent half his life on the phone.

When he got his last bill,

It made him feel ill.

Lived the rest of his life all alone.

The moody bus driver

The bus driver was in a very bad mood,

And to customers paying with large notes he was extremely rude.

A lady gets on with a baby and pays with a £20 note,

The driver angrily shouts,"You have destroyed my float!

Your baby is the ugliest I have ever seen."

Everyone thought the driver was really mean.

A man she sat next to said,"Go up there and give him a clout,

I'll hold your m...

Confessions of a husband and wife

Fred was on his deathbed,Jill held his fragile hand.

"Oh please my darling forgive me,I hope you'll understand!"

Jill's sweet voice aroused him from his sleep,

He looked up, pale,tired and began to weep.

"My darling Jill I have a confession to make before I go."

"Hush my love don't talk I think I know."

"No I must tell you now and die in peace,

The guilt in my troubled mind I ...

A teacher's problems with her pupils.

Tina was a teacher and suffered from stress,

A situation she was keen to redress.

Things got worst when she became cross-eyed,

The headmaster on her progress was disatisfied.

So with the local doctor she was advised to enrol.

Who said ,

"The problem lies with your pupils getting out of control."

Guards on a train are a must

Tears from a 75 year old lady pour,

As her dog's lead gets stuck in the train door.

A step up from the platform made it difficult to get up,

The driver couldn't see due to the track set up.

Her hand got caught in the door but she managed to pull it free,

"I started screaming and banging the door,but there was no guard there for me!"

Dragged to his death through a tunnel attached ...

There was a young man called Boris,

Who went upstairs with a florist.

The relationship did flower,

But in exactly one hour,

He was thrown out of his house by Doris.

Diddle,diddle dumpling

Diddle,diddle dumpling my son Fred,

Woke up one morning with a demon in his bed.

She had wings and was ready to fly,

She was warm and beautiful with evil in her eye.


She jumped on his head and entered his brain,

She was there to explore and mentally drain.

The goodness in there she physically drank.

The badness she spread as an evil prank.

It wasn't my dog!

I went to a house to show them a car,

It was round the corner it wasn't too far.

We sat on the couch and worked out a deal,

When in walked a dog and sat down to heel.

He moved onto the carpet and got into a squat,

Left a big mound it was quite a lot.


Well I was so embarassed I didn't know what to do,

And wondered whether the carpet was always its loo.

Demonization,beware !

Demons come and demons go,

They enter the brain when your feeling low.

Spreading evil as the good they shred.

Causing  major panic in your head.


If the bad in your head prevails,

Then into the depth of darkness the demon sails.

Magnifying the evil thats embedded there,

Heaving it out in a thunderous scare.


Disasters happen when brains are badly demonized,

Release 0f a jail bird

There was a young woman from Greece,

Overjoyed at her prison release.

With her legs far apart,

Laid ten eggs for a start,

And sold them all to the police.



Locked up


There was a young man from Aviemore,

His job as a locksmith he did adore.

 Broke into a jeweler's shop,

Caught in the act by a passing cop.

And swiftly made a bolt for the door.

There  was a young lady called Meg,

Who sat cross-legged with a cup to beg.

But  sat on a bun.

Then a current ran up her leg.

Spider fear

"I am an insect and I live in the grass,

Terrified of being eaten at every blade that I pass.

I look out for spiders,nasty,evil and scary,

With numerous eyes,sharp fangs and feet that are hairy.

Pursued by a spider once I'm lucky to be still alive.

He was distracted by a fly,thankfully I did survive."


Spiders inspire fear like few animals will.

Lurking in webs lying ready...

A shock for Jock

Jane and Jock loved holidaying in Lytham St Anne's,

Of the beach and its beauty they were great fans.

They loved going there on anniversary celebrations,

The views around gave them excitable elations.


They decided to go there to celebrate 20 years together

And along the beach one day enjoying the sunny weather,

They came across a secluded spot where once they had made love.

The three wishes

An old lady is rocking in her chair,

Wrinkled skin and snow white hair.

Suddenly a fairy flies through the door,

And grants her three wishes she did adore.


"I would like to have a million quid in my Barclays account."

Checking her statement she now had that amount !

"I would wish to be slim and beautiful dressed to kill."

She looked in the mirror saw an image to thrill.

Follow up to a dirty girl

The dirty girl bad and mean,

Not afraid to do what others dream.

The dirty girl wearing tight revealing apparel,

With eyes that suck you in with a double barrel.

"Hold your hands up or I'll shoot,

Look at my body I'm really cute."

Dirty girl a bitch if need be,

With a huge amount of energy.

The dirty girl with no name,

Will do anything ,no shame.

Alcoholic Aid,but unfortunately a wee rejection

A charity worker knocked on Debbie Hicks' door,

He knew her as he had called there before.

"Hello I'm collecting for the home for  alcoholics,

Can you donate anything to help Mrs. Hicks?"


"Of course I can ,I'm always ready to give you a helping hand,

If you come back after closing time you can have my husband."

After closing time the charity worker collected him.

"Get behind the curtain and strip," he said.

Her trolley full of items for the check-out to view.

Fred  normally did his shopping on line,

But this week he needed to view the beer and the wine.

So he walked down to ASDA ,but dogs aren't allowed.

He tied up his rottweiler away from the crowd.

But as he approached the check-out pushing his trolley,

He was approached by a lady who said,"I'm really sorry,

Anya is definitely the poet to watch,

Her writing's unique never a botch.

Her poems are varied her topics are great.

Keep different things coming, please don't refrain.


Keep on composing and filling us with joy.

 A compendium of poems which we thoroughly enjoy.

the smile on your face

A smile is warm without the heat,

Comes from the heart,difficult to beat.

A smile brings us together whether its yours or mine,

Never mind whats happening your smile will shine.


A smile through stress is very strong.

Puts things right when things go wrong.

A smile is strange wrinkles up your face,

And vanishes quickly into a secret hiding place.

Waiting for the end to come...but the end was happy.

Who  made Anya a  necklace out of it  to hang round her neck.

Its fly day, the tenth of August

God in heaven made the fly,

But never got round to telling us why.

He sent down the spider to catch the fly,

But why oh why did You make the fly?


I fly into a house and land on some bread,

Spreading my germs while getting well fed.

I crawl on the wall watching the world go by,

Looking out for preditors so I don't die.

Suddenly into a spider's web I did fall,

The doctor ordered the woman to strip and relax for a test,

And then proceeded to knead and pinch each breast.
