A Peace Of Advice #poems #poetry

Sometimes poetry comes in the form of good advice, and you wonder where from…

Never pick your nose in public

Or roll it in a ball

And if you must pee outdoors,

Just not against the wall.

Your zits are not for squeezing

In any public place

And if you have the urge to cough

Just not in someone’s face.

Ear wax is not a toffee-sub

However it might seem

And if you need to let off a fart,

Just not at tea with the Queen.

When the idea of some alfresco sex

Takes hold of your befuddled noggin,

By all means treat your good selves

Just don’t indulge in dogging…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I can only respond with a work of teh greatest of all poets A Nonymouse

    I sat next to the duchess at tea,
    It was just as I feared it would be,
    Her rumblings abdominal
    Were something phenomenal
    And everyone thought it was me.
