A crack in the Labour mirror

Noris wanted to be a politician from day one,

For a seat on the local council he did run.

He always believed in love at first sight,

As he looked in the mirror at night.

But the mirror developed a crack and Noris a Labour supporter never won.

We love our pets

"My husband is going to leave me if I don't get rid of my dog, "said Jane.

I suppose for a while, when he leaves ,I will miss him."

"R.I.P. dad ,"by Percy his son

"We were a family of eight,

Dad frequently came home late.

Every morning off to work dad would go,

He was a baker we definitely needed the dough.


Poverty was rampant in our house,

Food was scarce ,there was only one mouse.

 Scrambled egg mum would serve as round the table we would  sit,

One egg she would place leaving us all to scramble for it.


Unfortunately dad s...

Placing deposits on cars

Two pigeons were flying over town,

Outside Greggs lots of treats they put down.

Full to the brim, much excreta they needed to dispel,

 At a car showroom they placed their deposits on the cars they did  sell.

It was Fred's first day at work,

At the entrance his manager did lurk.

He handed Fred a large broom,

And said,"Welcome to the hotel, brush out every room."

"But I'm a graduate and to  do that wouldn't be the norm !"

"Then hand me the broom and I'll show you how to perform."

Age definitely does matter

An elderly millionaire falls in love with a young girl,

Decides to propose and buy her a ring with an expensive pearl.

"Do you think  if I tell her I'm fifty five she will say yes?"

"Best to tell her your eighty,your chances will be better I guess."

And got her 90 year old grandad to pay the bill.

An outpouring of grief for Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021

Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh a hero of mine,

Passed away this week at the age of ninety nine.

He was Her Majesty's strength and stay,

Devastating to think he's passed away !


He was always at the heart of national life,

A star for our country and a support for his  wife.

The monarchy's champion always looking ahead,

Hardworking,as sharp as a pin,extremely well read.

A much loved 85 year old grandma mauled by two dogs on Good Friday has sadly died

A neighbourhood is in shock,many have cried,

An 85 year old grandma mauled by two dogs  sadly died.

Two pitbull type animals got into her garden through a fence,

Dragged her along her garden,sadly there was no defence.


A heartbreaking tragedy ,the family are in pieces,

Both dogs have been destroyed ,police information releases.

My thoughts are with the family of a much loved...

Who delightfully demanded,"Do it again dad !"

A count of madness

Joe went past an assylum where  the inmates did shout and scream,

Joe looked over the fence and heard them shouting , "sixteen,sixteen."

Suddenly a shower of milk from the assylum landed on Joe's head,

And the counting happily changed to ,"seventeen,seventeen,"instead.

A rugby sensation. Cymru am byth

We Welsh are over the moon with our six nations win,

What an exciting run of play it has bin.!!!!!

Thankyou Scotland for beatng France,

For your last minute try ,with joy we did dance.


France kept our celebrations, a mystery on ice,

But in an empty French stadium our cake got covered in spice.


Diolch yn fawr iawn.

Drugged from an early age

Joe was addicted to drugs and with his friends did share,

Taking him on a temporary scenic route ,ending up nowhere.

Discipline as a child was light,to be SMACKED   was a might,

Well,but for one or two grams to get him to sleep at night.

"We were a large impoverished family, life was a scramble !!"

"When I was brought up times were hard,

We had two chickens who laid eggs in our yard.

Mum put scrambled eggs on the table for us to eat,

We would  scramble to get them with our feet.


A boiled egg is hard to beat but easy to crack,

Devouring the scrambled,for the boiled we went back.

The walls of our terraced were so thin,

Peeling our onions,neighbours would cry when in.

Bernadette was a flaming nuisance !!


Bernadette was Bill's old flame,

She had been his perfect dame.

Their relationship however came to an end,

Lighting fires became an addiction she couldn't end.


She frequently burnt the toast,

And letters that came through the post.

She set fire to all the bills she did get,

That's why she became known as "burn a debt ".

Lockdown dog price boom

Dog thefts are on the up,

More so if you have a pup.

Be weary of posting pictures of your pet online,

Tags which show where you live ,to dognappers  shine.


Avoid leaving your dog outside a shop alone,

More valuable to a thief than a mobile phone.

Easier to entice with a meaty treat,

The trauma of a dognap you don't want to meet


After drugs it's guns then pups,

And at the book section a book she did grab.

She had been shoplifting without any doubt.


Afterwards to her doctor her sister...

Spent my money,all I'd got.

Woke up suddenly and had a snap.

A burglar broke in and confronted my mum,

And ended up in my crocodile's tum.


Yum,yum,the burglar was his first feed,

To devour the burglar was his good deed.

Nip the bud of violence against women at an early age

Violence against women must be cut out,

Punishment dispelled in schools when boys flout.

The crime starts at an early age,

When some boys, brutally savage girls in a rage.


Jealousy and bullying steps in,

When boys using  strength decide they must win.

Girls have been designed to be multitask,loving and lacking in muscle,

A minority of boys miss use their strength to win i...

How to deal with cold calls.

Constant cold calls can drive you insane,

I tell them ,"Can't speak to you now I'm flying my plane,

Give me your home number and I'll ring you back tonight."

They immediately hang up and like me  take flight.

"What?" a masterful interview by Oprah Winfrey, opening up the hearts of Meghan and Harry

The interview was televised on Women's Independence Day,

When Meghan and Harry had their say.

They spilled the beans in a jaw dropping interview,

Bombshell after bombshell we began to view.


Meghan just didn't want to live she did report,

She felt controlled,trapped without support.

Her mental health was way below the norm,

A wet and windy interview which started a storm.
