Silly Billy

A Poem by john l smith



Silly Billy


Billy, who was silly

Had a girlfriend named Milly

He simply daren’t offend

Which was because she

Was nowhere near wee

And as has been said

Was very easy to see

Having been in that large way

Since at the birthday

When she had turned three

Having then been fed fruit

From the life giving tree

From when on she’d grandly 

Expanded enormously

And after that time

Enjoyed a continually, unending, eating spree.


She had grown so large

That she’d been relegated

To a landing barge

Cross seven seas, it had been stated

She could travel at large

Yet when on a far shore

When she would discharge

The semi-truck drivers

Would all over-charge

Because the transportation fee

They would charge for her barge

Was unfortunately inclined to be

Also much too enlarged


But then from unseasonable heat

That life tree had badly fried

And her source of food

Was uncharacteristically denied

Without that fat fruit

She shrunk deep inside

Until she shrank down to the size

Of a normal sweet bride

And tho” Billy was still silly

Their relationship was sweet

Because of the normal type food

That they both now do eat.
