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.......

Always make me sick
Sick with laughter (that is)

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

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'.

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?.....

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.

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.

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.

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!

Some of your list of questions after my comment I have already covered on 6 August so that should suffice. Insults tend to go stale quite quickly unless they are very skilled. It is not obligatory to comment on poems but where an inspiration comes in I feel it is justified, which I did in your case. Perhaps you might feel the urge yourself someday. Other than that I am flummoxed - either I am not getting your humour or aliens have landed. (That's my humour).

Hi DK - my career largely consisted of "people watching"
but at that stage of life, an active interest in poetry was not involved. In my retirement, waiting rooms might certainly
be source of poetical ponderings but I usually have other
things (like treatment 😐) on my mind. However, I might
find something in future experience that sees me look to
humour for a poem when I'm next due for the needle or drill!
Cheers.

Hi dknape!
I'm from Ireland, my name is an Irish name.
It is pronounce like 'Qweeva'

I definitely get a lot of attraction with my name. It's unique I suppose haha.

June is my middle name Jane is a name I chose for myself when I had my confirmation.

I guess I could have chose an easier name but what fun would that be haha!

Hello DK! Love your profile!!! Feel like that myself. About your query - they do eat sardines, but being a pastoral people love mutton!!!!!!!
Also loved Breaking the chain. mixed up the torturers a bit though! Gestapo OK, but waterboarding I think is US technology, and as for tarring and feathering!!!!!! Loved it.

You will be glad to hear I am not competing for POTW at the moment, (Why they awarded it to me stll astonishes me) as I have broken my wrist!!!!!

Keep up the go0d work! Surprised Wolfgar Meire didn't get at you for the anachronisms!!!! Jennifer

I had never read your sample 'Chain Letter' fully until now. That is funny, to hold up someone else's hopes of a damn message, and then even better - to delete it. You are sly.😎

I also have burning bushes in my ears and brimstone in my nose - but you can't see that part. . .

Hello there DK - thanks for the comment on my page.
No - it's not me on the bench - a snap by me taken in
Dartmouth, Devon, overlooking the River Dart towards its
estuary. This was the jumping-off spot for many US armed
forces' vessels employed in the D-Day Landings 1944...on
Utah Beach. Now it is a very popular holiday spot - but
you can also probably imagine how busy it was then!

Hi DK - the humour in your blogs is always welcome and
especially when it connects with things we find ourselves
suffering in this electronic/keep-up world. I tend to agree
with TA when he mentioned his suspicions that clicking on
"unsubscribe" might send an unwanted message to its
source - and, instead, I look for "delete" whenever possible. Rest assured, I do not see that happening in respect of anything you post on past/present evidence πŸ˜ƒ.
