Nonsense Poetry

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen
"

As it says on the tin!

"

Oh Bucket!

Hereby lies the tail

of who fell in the pail,

slug verses the snail.

Interest Accrued

God forsake that I should ever die,

what should I do with all this time

that's flown by?

Should I hide it 'neath my neat hedgerow

or put it in my savings bank

to simply grow and grow?

Daylight Robbery

"Give me a penny,

give me a pound",

indeed that mugger

doesn't sound

too ambitious!

Deal Or No Deal?

"Ah I see." said Mr Fox

"Now I know you want me to box

clever."

"To skirt around your chicken coop

not to tarry and not to look

inside"

"But here's my take on your advice,

I'm a foxy type of guy

but honest too, I never lie.

So here's what we will do.

For a modest plate of fowl stew

I will pass your chicken pens

and not touch a feather on your precious hens!"

"Deal?"

Thank you Lady Sue. Twas a fun write.
"Oh Bucket" made me think of "Jack and Jill" ..jack being the slug who went first and Jill the snail that followed ... crazy i know ;} i like and enjoyed each of these free associations .. lets me pick a favorite "Interest Accrued" I like the play with time and our perspectives .. gives me a chuckle to think of saving up all the time that flies by .. cool stuff my friend! That fox is offering a win win for himself isn't he? .. well ..after all he is sly and foxy

They were fun to write too. Many thanks Kari.
For some reason this poem reminds me of politics. It's always a trade-off & the deal struck is often not satisfactory for either side. I honestly cannot find the common thread that connects these different thought streams, but your title seems to exempt you from making sense with this! *wink! wink*! I, on the other hand, would never DARE reveal the nonsensical s**t that meanders thru my mind. So I give you kudos for being transparent! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Soooo... reading through your poems they all seem very much like I’d pick up an actual poem book and find them in there. They’re great and I love the rhyming!
