Fancy Dress

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Who went to a fancy dress ball
He dressed as a tree,
But he failed to foresee
His abuse by the dogs in the hall

So he had to row standing for miles

And her form was last seen
Flying over the tops of the trees

Who loved packet of seeds
In a month, silly ass
He was wrapped up in grass
And couldn’t sit down for the weeds

Children From Lime

Some children in a Park called Lime
Were arguing all of the time.
So their father said,
“Go and sit in the shed!”
And now they are getting on fine!

The Rat Called Justin

Who lived in a smelly old dust bin

Mummy’s Tummy

I know of a very shrewd mummy
Who has an extremely large tummy
Inspired by all the film
She aims to get slim
And forever lose her sweet tummy

Renovations & DIY

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

There once were two ladies online,
Who found renovations just fine;
With some paint and a level,
They’d miter and bevel,
New kitchen or closet? Designed!

They decided to build a new site,
Dedicated to renos done right;
“Go green or go home”
Is their motto and goal –
Keep your energy footprint quite light.

Save your budget from utter destruction,
Keeping “green” first, throughout your production;
Re-use and re-purpose,
But first do your homework,
Check us out for great “how-to” instruction…

Thanks to Elle for this one

Eye shadow,mascara and lipstick
Of famous brands people pick
Apply on their face
To bring out that glaze
And spend their time with their make up kit

I have a most challenging son,
Whose answer to me is, “Yes Mom”
He’s funny and bright
But when out of my sight
I get chills for what mayhem may come

Whenever his school phones I’m scared,
To answer the phone unprepared
His teachers all tell me
He won’t work, so-help-me
But they don’t allow duct-taping to chairs

To be honest I’m quite at a loss,
As his antics can come with a cost
The headaches I feel
Could make stucco peel
And probably leave my eyes crossed!
