Fixing a Hole

I’m fixing a hole
In the shoes that I wear
To keep the rain from my socks
If we had some

I’m petting a cat
Who is again on my lap
And he can’t stop himself from purring
Cause he’s a kitty cat

Perhaps I’ll stay home
And not worry about the rain
It hasn’t rained for 90 days anyway
But it still might…..

And here is a faster version:

Picks up the Dice
From the Table
Of the Local Casino
With her friend Dino

Look at her gambling
Throwing her pay
Down the drain
And she’s feeling
No pain
Some say she’s insane

All the unlucky gamblers
Where do they get their dough
All the unlucky gamblers
Why not just see a show

I see it every time in Vegas
I see it every time in Vegas

The Great Wave

1024px-Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa2

Do you know the name of this painting?
I will give you a hint
It was done by a Master Artist
Using a woodblock print

He changed his address 100 times
He was constantly on the move
He would fill each house with all of his drawings
And they would eventually have to move

I think that he is just fantastic
His work, it has no fear
To me it almost seems elastic
For more info click here:

It’s Hokusai’s “The Great Wave of Kanagawa”
I think that it’s just great
He lived in Japan in the Edo Period
Which ended in 1868

Name That Tune

tchaikovsky

 

Here is a little ditty
That I think is almost heavenly
I think it’s very witty
And it premiered in 1870

It was written Peter Ilyad T.
Whose birthday is May 7th
It is 600 bars long, you see
And here are the first eleven

Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

William Shatner is flying on planea jet
And he is out of work
It’s stormy out and it’s quite wet
But he’s not Captain Kirk

He’s travelling with his trophy wife
Who tells him not to smoke
She’s known him almost all his life
And thinks he’s a splendid bloke

But soon after the plane departs
And there’s nowhere for him to hide
The chaos and the mayhem starts
When William looks outside

He says “There’s a Gremlin on the wing
And he’s pulling on the wires!”
The attendant says “It’s probably nothing.
Maybe you’re just too tired.”

“You’re right” he says while smiling
“I probably need some sleep
My behavior has become beguiling
Frow now on not a peep”

His wife then gives him a sleeping pill
And tells him to close his eyes
Pretty soon we will be in Jacksonville
As fast as this plane flies

She calms him with a gentle touch
As the passengers get nervous
One man who has had too much
Says loudly “I Need Service!”

Then William starts to twitch and panic
And needs to be restrained
His behaviour becomes almost manic
Some might even say insane

He grabs a gun from a sleeping cop
Who onced lived near the Kremlin
And then we hear a very loud pop
As he shoots wildly at the Gremlin

And when the plane limps back to ground
And to the hospital William is headed
Not one passenger makes a sound
Because the plane is completely shredded

 

More Twilight Zone Poetry

magic-shoes

The response to last week’s Twilight Zone episode summary in poem form was astounding! With that, here is a poem about the episode called “Dead Man’s Shoes.”

A homeless man who lives alone
And can’t afford to use a phone
Is changed one night, but not by booze
When he finds a pair of magic shoes

The shoes were once owned by a crook
Who never even read a book
And was in a gang who always backed him
Until the day they up and whacked him

But the homeless man, whose name was Nate
Had something to appreciate
He had a woman now who warmed him
Because of the shoes that had transformed him

Nate, who was once called a Maggot
Goes to the mob boss whose name is Dagget
“So help me I’ll get you” he says to him
Before he is shot dead by his old friend Jim

The Twilight Zone always has narration
It is heard by half the population
You should never watch it all alone
Because you might end up in the Twilight Zone
