Oh, no, no, no, we’re not old!
Old is something worn out, weak
So though it may sound too bold  
I’d say we are at our peak

From the top there’s only the way down
Still it's not time yet at mirror to frown

Come on, people, it’s easy
And it doesn’t have to really rhyme
Follow my bad example
The way I waste my time

Maybe it wasn't horrible enough
so you worry about the impression you'd make?
All right, let me show you how tough
self-inflicted embarrassment I can take :D


So I fed the birds today
Like I usually do
And not too far away
Like he usually does
Tomcat sat and I thought he’ll say:
Is tomorrow the glorious day
When the patient one
Who did nothing but obey
This fragile ceasefire
Obviously meant to fatten my prey
Can finally his catness display  


I dare you to write something worse
before I let this thread ride the hearse.

Helen you are born to thyme
To move this thread along
I wish I had the precious time
To turn your poetry to song


And THAT is precisely why I write prose, not poetry!

Precious time, I know, I know
With each year that has run away  
The waists of our hourglasses grow

Too short for fun seems any day
Used to always expect the storm
To bright sky no attention we pay

And that happens in any literary form :D

I want to copy Helen's last line
I can't do this without a lead :(
See! I'm just sitting here in decline
Clinging to a haiku 'reed'




:blush:

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

But this is easier, we’re free
No rigid structure, no fee
To pay in exact syllable change
Just hunt your thoughts at wide range
Speaking of which I think
In my own brain I found a kink

Helen you have upped the game
Six lines instead of four
As a poet I'll find no fame
But I'll post again, I'm sure!

My posts, long like sausages
Seriously, don’t laugh just yet
Hoped to convey messages
They who find the sense lose bet

Only you would rhyme 'sausage' with 'message'
And leave us in a stew
For actually, nothing else rhymes with 'sausage'
So I take off my hat to you!

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

Poems about sausages
And poems about stew
This thread is turning tasty
I could eat a cake or two!

Every artist must be a little mad
With only one leg in the world of real  
For what you couldn’t grasp now don’t be sad
Only weight of time can break that seal

Sunday evening and the day
Has been nothing but sleet.
If I had put my wellies away
I would have had wet feet.

Oh, snowplough, stinky and large
Through idyll thickening white
Will I ever see you barge
Or it’s me, my legs and spite?

Snowplough, nowhere to be seen
As it usually has been
Carry me then, my legs, go
as always, we’re to and fro
