I’ve penned some nonsense recently which I thought I’d share as we plunge into lockdown. It may amuse or instigate a groan…


Being part troll, Jane was excessively hairy

Which sad to relate made her naturally scary.

She tried depilation

But to her consternation She still looked more furball than fairy.

The naturist Alain Armistead
Brewed beer, in the nude, in his shed.
On his famed open days
He received special praise
Because he always displayed a good head.

I really must get off my chest

The terror that follows ‘be our guest’

In my wardrobe, I stare

Wondering what I should wear

The diamanté or the sequined string vest?

You don’t need to be a deep thinker

To realise that old man’s a stinker

When he leers at a girl

And makes her hair curl;

He’s not cool, just a bit of a winker.

For years, I could never find work

As my wink made everything jerk

But the prescribed medication

Has, to my consternation

Changed the wink to a continuous twerk.

    Just be sure to keep these away from next summer’s wedding toasts. In fact does your future in-law to be know about this side of you?
