Biography

I have been accused of writing poems. although my thoughts aren't large, still thought goes into my poems I plead Guilty as so charged.

Samples

CHAIN LETTER I love breaking chain letters especially the ones that say this has been sent to over 30,000 people and now you have a chance to read it and pass it on to all your friends and relatives who will in turn pass it on again it is up to you they say to keep it going Ad infinitum Ad nauseam because it the righteous thing to do and anyone who breaks this chain is despicable and morally bankrupt bereft of any mercy too bad DELETE the end of the chain sent into trash-file oblivion I hide in the closet awaiting the chain letter Gestapo I am certain they will come for me and take me in for questioning and after waterboarding force me to confess I am indeed the chain letter assassin the provocateur who deliberately with malice aforethought stopped the all important chain I will be publicly whipped then tarred and feathered ultimately I will be hung from the highest e-mail post my body thrown into the river in passing I would add this poem is also a chain-letter but poems are different... DO NOT BREAK THIS CHAIN. -d.knape

Re 'Broken Hearts' the fear of rejection is a powerful 'motivation' not to do things. Even posting poems. Won't do it because others might not like it. Rejection at work...

You bring me fodder
Food for thought
Don't ever stop
Don't leave me nought

Cat plays with mouse
What's this dead rat?
Cat waits for mouse
While on it's mat

This could go
On and on
Have to go out
Be back, not gone.......

'Fraid dk your poems
Always make me sick
Sick with laughter (that is)
I then can take the mick

The serious ones however
I know they must come out
I cannot take the micky
On these which are about....

Things we need to ponder
(I need to garden shape)
Instead've of rhyming nonsense

DK - when I saw the title "Hearring Loss" - I anticipated a blog
about our UK fishing stocks (herring) running low - slightly misprinted. I was doubly deceived!! πŸ˜ƒ

Was apologising to you for my not spelling it 'humorous'

Didn't they tell you
Your printer needs ink?
No wonder it's grumbling
It needs an ink-drink

You will have to ask it
(Kindly), which brand
They're so bloody fussy
(Nothing too bland)

Now dk how'd YOU
Feel not getting 'INK'
A brand of your beer
To drink, wink, wink, wink

So go to your printer
On bended knees
Ask for forgiveness
Say which brand now, please?

I could go on
In this foolhardy way
You ask "What's a cartridge?"
Damn!, forgot, another day πŸ˜›

I'm pleased you were awake enough to read my comment 'yawn'.
(I thought 'zzzzzz' might be too complex). It's you my friend who was causing me to doze off by encouraging 'Sweet Dreams.' at the outset....what could I do?

You gotta admit it didn't have that comic spark to get me going (hence 'yawn') but we all need some serious stuff thrown in every now and again to bring us back to our senses hey?.....

Sorry DK but I do not write the POTW intros. It is someone far cleverer than I and I understand it is to remain anonymous, at least it was when I was involved some time ago.

No shame taken πŸ˜‡

Bah to so-called labour-saving devices. There is a UK TV advert
extolling the "advantage" of an electric whisk over a hand-held one,
neatly avoiding the cost and the likelihood of power breakdown and
inconvenience. And I bet I'm as old as - and probably older than - you, as I can even remember using a fork for the purpose of mixing
stuff.

DK, I’m afraid rumours of my greatness are hideously over-exaggerated. In fact I read all the poems on WOL.
Your Non-Fat piece struck a chord with me as I have been trying to slim my work down recently too

Hi DK,

Only just seen the question about 'keep your pecker up'. It's Cockney, (East End of London slang), for cheer up! or similar expressions. You prob know about Cockney rhyming slang, which is fascinating.

Thank you for your post on my blog. I am afraid you are right. We have lost our values and free spirit to be and to speak freely. The Β΄thought police Β΄maybe listening. Beware, You could be trumped at any moment.

To which food are you referring: bitter and pickled eggs (beer and hard boiled eggs) or raspberry ripple (a flavoured ice cream) ? I looked up temale but think I would prefer one of the two I have described.

Hello D.K - in reply to your question about notifications, I am still getting them, but I had to say, on a kind of form to fill in, which ones I wanted, and which not. Perhaps if you go to your account you will find this form.

Always enjoy your stuff! Hope you are still getting fed one way or another| Perhaps the last effort, about departing, was due to starvation tactics? Cabeza di cocco!!!!! Not really, love your poems, keep one cheerful. What exactly are enchiladas anyway? Obviously food of a Spanish origin, but can't get further than that, and am too lazy to look it up.

Have you ever read one of my poems? I'm curious because I know you read my comments, and with no profile picture I can't tell if you're a spambot that came to life and developed a sense of humor, or if you're messing with me. . . .

Stop messing with me!!!πŸ˜…

But do keep writing.

d. I love your sample 'chain letter'

You could not ever be called 'the weakest link in the chain' However if that link is anywhere above where you are... Its a rapid decent to a pile of rusty bits of metal hoops clinging onto each other in the vain hope that someone will link you back up for some useful purpose.

Where was I? Oh! I remember chain letters!

I am still waiting for mine...
Some bugger always deletes it before I see it!
