STICK BOY AND MATCH GIRL IN LOVE

Stick boy liked match girl,
He liked her a lot.
He liked her cute figure,
He thought she was hot.

But could a flame ever burn
For a match and a stick?
It did quite literally; he burned up quick.


SUE

To avoid a lawsuit
We'll just call her "Sue"
Or "that girl who likes to sniff
Lots of glue.
The reason I know that this the case,
Is whenever she blows her nose
Kleenex sticks to her face.

mp_addict:: you need some more practice. Could you perhaps take some lessons from the uber-poetically-gifted Tootsie??


Here's one I composed recently,and I have generously dedicated it to johnnythemonkey:

There was a young lad from Devizes,
Whose b***s were of 2 different sizes;
When asked was that rude
Or just a little bit lewd
He replied: "No,Life's full of Surprises!"

I guess Tutsi didn`t die, she is sleeping. BB, you don`t like JABBERWOCKY, do you?

Quite on the contrary,sophisticated,
the Jabberwocky poem is a fine
example of medieval versifying;
But can you explain/clarify
the meanings of these words,please:

Frumious,vorpal,manxome,mimsy,
borogroves,raths,mome,Bandersnatch,
Tumtum,uffish,whiffling,tulgey,
galumphing,frabjous,beamish,Jujub.

Perhaps you can also regale us all
with some fine examples of the medieval poetry of Robin Hood??

Frumious— Combination of "fuming" and "furious".
Vorpal— See vorpal sword.
Manxome - Fearsome. A portmanteau of "manly" and "buxom", the latter relating to men for most of its history.
Mimsy- Combination of "miserable" and "flimsy".
Borogrove — A thin shabby-looking bird with its feathers sticking out all round, "something like a live mop". The initial syllable of borogove is pronounced as in borrow rather than as in worry.
Rath - A sort of green pig
Mome — Possibly short for "from home," meaning that the raths had lost their way
Bandersnatch - — A swift moving creature with snapping jaws, capable of extending its neck.
Tumtum – A tree
Uffish - — A state of mind when the voice is gruffish, the manner roughish, and the temper huffish.
Whiffling - To waver, or shake, as if moved by gusts of wind; to shift, turn, or veer about.
Tulgey - — Thick, dense, dark.
Galumphing — Perhaps a blend of "gallop" and "triumphant". Used to describe a way of "trotting" down hill, while keeping one foot further back than the other. This enables the Galumpher to stop quickly.
Frabjous— Possibly a blend of fair, fabulous, and joyous.
Beamish— Radiantly beaming, happy, cheerful, it is attested from 1530.
Jujub bird— A desperate bird that lives in perpetual passion.

To bIG:

I was merely reciting Tim Burton. Those poems I recited were part of my poetry interp for speech, along with Stain Boy and Vincent. I was going to recite Jabberwocky but Tootsie beat me to it.

sophisticated: I commend your (above) glossary--it is expansive,informed,imaginative,and--well--sophisticated.
Well Done!

The Strange and Sorry Tale of Jinndi Monn from Bangalore:

1. Jinndi Monn did strickle forth erewhon,
To bange strong felding berrywhostle;
Whose crust did crickle rust in Decalon,
Encrilting up a shield of merrythrostle.

2. Jinndi Monn took brackle whereupon,
To a reddscot furn-dent coddlecapper;
Whose reek scant wrestled caraplan,
Plonging forkfast into spottenthropper...

3. Jinndi Monn held hendig out, therefrom,
To crasp tight terra-fungled Sklottapore;
But having drank so steep out at the meladone,
He slank hobbered broken,back to Bangalore.

Turning and turning
The world goes on.
We can't change it, my friend.
Let us go riding all through the days,
Together to the end, to the end.

Les bicyclettes de Belsize
Carry us side by side
And hand in hand we will ride,
Over Belsize.
Turn your magical eyes.
Round and around,
Looking at all we found.
Carry us through the skies,
Les bicyclettes de Belsize.

Spinning and spinning,
The dreams I know,
Rolling on through my head.
Let us enjoy them, before they go.
Come the dawn, they all are dead.
Yes, they're dead.

Les bicyclettes de Belsize
Carry us side by side
And hand in hand we will ride
Over Belsize.
Turn your magical eyes.
Round and around,
Lookin' at all we found.
Carry us through the skies,
Les bicyclettes de Belsize.
