Thoughts of a pensioner plunged into poverty as she struggles to eat and heat

As rising bills through my letterbox swarm,

My main worry is the rising cost of keeping warm.

Having to cut back on meals to make ends meet,

My health is at risk unable to afford to heat !!


A torture situation arises leading to a depressive mood,

In having to choose between warmth and food.

Salades are becoming my main meal,

Rising gas prices making cooking a no deal. !!

Police officers deal with serious shituations every single day !!

A perfect crime was committed last night by Pete,

He broke into a police station and stole every toilet seat.

Police as yet have no-one to bring a conviction upon,

And unfortunately, at present ,have nothing to go on.

So he picked her up and looked  her in the eye,

Asked her if she wouldn't mind giving it a try.


She asked him whether he was married or a Catholic.

He said,"No neither,"this did the trick.

He pulled over to the side and embraced her in a snog,

But suddenly he burst i...

And exterminate every insect.

A caterpillar rescued by a loving little girl

A little girl  out for a walk,

Happily with her relative did talk.

Suddenly  bent down on bended knee,

And picked up a caterpillar running free.


Showed me the caterpillar running up her hand,

"Don't want to see a passing foot on it land !!

Don't want to see it squashed never to fly !!

I'll place it in the undergrowth, to be a butterfly."

A plea to politicians.We need more bobbies on the beat !!!

As secluded lives behind bodyguards they live.

They never have to travel at night on trains full of drunks,

Or witness their convenience stores being robbed by  skunks !!


We need more bobbies on the beat,

The rising crime figures we must defeat.

Punishments for early career offenders must be more heated,

Fuel poverty is going to hit many of us, 

Many pensioners will have to keep warm on the bus.

Rising bills will undoubtedly affect us old,

Earlier deaths for us elderly more susceptable to the cold.


Rising energy bills are expected to make us frown,

How can we save money and bring our bills down ?

A young girl elated by a kind complement

At the funeral of my uncle Mat,

With an elderly lady I did chat.

I was absolutely delighted when she remarked  that I was the most beautiful woman she had seen.

On leaving,elated, I remarked to my mum how complementary and  kind the  lady had been.

Mum answered,"Oh yes she has always been complementary and kind,

August the 2nd ,my birthday !!!

Forget about the future you can't predict it,

Forget about the PRESENT I didn't get it !!


When I think about my age ,it brings on a frown,

It seems to always go up but never comes down.

Feeling sick Fred grabbed a thermometer and opened his mouth wide,

Hoping to get a positive reading when it was placed inside.

Molly, his wife,aghast at what she had seen,

Shouted,"spit it out,you don't know where it's been !!"

"Oh no !"gasped Fred,"has it been in the mouth of our dog Olly ?"

"Not exactly,it's been somwhere else "answered Molly.

Countless jokes have been shed which have brought laughter and tears.

An award for  the instigator of the knock,knock jokes comes as no surprise,

Due to his originality,perseverance and appeal ,he has won the "no-bell" prize.

Heartbreak !! A friend get's the sack.

A friend called round yesterday in tears,

Rising food and fuel prices accentuated her fears.

"I have tragically become unemployed !"

Noticing  the intensity of her tears I couldn't avoid.


"Have you registered to go on the dole ?"

"Yes,I buried someone in the wrong hole !!

Losing my job as an undertaker makes my heart ache,

But I must admit I  did make a grave mistake !!!"

The Fizz of Liz

Liz Truss in the leadership contest must win,

And Angela Rayner , to be the next Labour leader must get in.

As leaders the ladies could unite and sort our problems out,

Rather than viciously,as the men in Paliament at each other shout.


Liz Truss is the candidate with the most  impressive C.V.

Due to  her  family values,compassion and aspirations,the next P.M. I see.

The Tory leadership contest should not be happening !!!

It was Boris' mission to make our country a better place,

But a rebellion by clueless Tory M.P.'S was gathering pace.

Boris was and still is the best leader to improve our lives,

But has been brought to an end by his assasins wielding their knives.

20,000 care-home residents thrown to the wolves during the first covid wave

Before numerous care-homes became hot spots for the dead.

To 20,000 vulnerable , elderly residents we said a sad goodbye,

Spending their final hours confused and alone to die.


N.H.S. hospitals were allowed to discharge untested patients of declining years,

Throwing the care-home residents to the wolves and festering covid fears.

An appeal to Russian mothers on Mothers Day

Ask mothers what is the most precious thing in their life,

I am sure they will say,first being a mother and then a wife.

Since the beginning of the war 16000 children in Ukraine will have been born,

Many under the concrete ceiling of a dark basement, feeling forlorn.


Thousands of young Russian men as soldiers are sent to fullfill,

The ambitions of an eratic leader to devastate ...

Thoughts of an Ukrainian citizen

"Until very recently I lived a very normal life,

But  February the  24th this year brought stress and strife.

I experienced devastation, death and explosions first-hand,

When an unpredictable leader bombarded my land.


Dark days for my Ukraine lie ahead,

Bombed cities,unrecognisable,many dead.

Most of us now live underground,

Shocked and desperate as the sirens sound.

Free to spread the virus and allowed to roam.

Scary vibes round staff rooms this will send.

Lower energy bills popping through our letterboxes would be ace !

It's madness for our politicians to ignore,

The increasing energy bills that pop through our door.

For us on modest and lower incomes,there is a financial fear,

With the average fuel bill rising to £2000 a year.
