Finally plucked up courage to tell people I wanted to write humorous verse. Well, typical reaction. They said "You can't be serious!"

Sea Crag Blues

Visible to anyone in the world
Stuck out here, on this cold charmless crag
Not from doubt, but choice and fear.
In case existence is unknowable,
But hoping we can find it still, given space.

Our cold fingers touching in the vegetable terraces
Do not entirely reassure.
And seeing the joy of the seals around the island
Still doesn't solve the conundrum.

Not: Why do we exist? What is for?
Its purpose, or ours, were we given it?
If so, what before/set it in motion/donated it?
If so, how did the before exist?

No, we the troubled, on our wave-dashed lonely rock ask ourselves
And if we may so, ask you.
What is it, this existence? Is it the song of a bird perhaps?
Or the hurt and and love the shore feels for the sea?

"How to be a good teacher?", the young nun asked her Abbess.

The Abbess beamed:  "Always help your pupils understand, but in a way they can understand."

Last Known Position

Visible to anyone in the world
Going up some fiords. It was plain sailing as far as bay 6. But later we were a bit lost.


Back to bay 6!

I read this tweet about a herd of wildebeest rampaging in Hyde Park. Turned out it was fake gnus.

There's this new book out about the Titanic. Apparently it's an in-depth study.

A stamp collector told me he doesn't bother with Penny Reds. Apparently they're two a penny.

Although I find prose grows on one,

I'm not averse to verse when all is done.

If you don't trust your English teacher further than you can throw em

I guess you will be discouraged from writing a poem.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Had a crush on his teacher.

He made a "Woo her" plan

That consisted of writing "Man and Superman".

Limerick

Visible to anyone in the world

There was a young man of the West

Who kept a racoon in his vest.

He said to his Dad

"It may seem a bit mad,

But it keeps the cold off of my chest."

Why Did the Chicken Tick the Rota?

Visible to anyone in the world

Many readers have offered suggestions, including

It knew the turkey was feeling lurkey

It had a grudge against acorns

It wanted to make its mark

It was a mistick

it just clucked.
