THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE

 

Oh a young girl called Jane

was so boringly plain

that she knew she’d not be someone’s wife.

So she got out of bed

and to her mirror said;

what you need is the Wild Side Of Life.”

So she packed her suitcase

and she dolled up her face;

but she could not disguise her plain looks.

Well the taxi came round

and she WAS airport bound

for a flight she’d so hurriedly booked.

And the Pilot, oh dear;

what a hunk, and SO near.

And he smiled as he passed by her seat.

Then he came back to speak

and her knees they went weak

and her heart seemed to skip several beats.

And the Pilot said, “Jane;

you’re incredibly plain;

guys like me won’t give YOU but a glance.

But the Steward’s ok

even though he is gay.

Chat him up girl you may have a chance.”

Well the plain looking Jane,

she just sat on that plane;

but the trip did not go as she’d planned.

For the plane was attacked;

by three Arabs in fact;

and in Africa came in to land.

But young Jane she escaped

with the help of an Ape;

and they ran for what seemed like a day.

Then she heard a strong voice;

and she stopped; she’d no choice.

As an Ape man was stood in her way.

And the Ape man said “My;

you’re incredibly shy.

But with YOUR looks I’m hardly surprised.

And he said, “I’m Tarzan.”

What a hunk; what a MAN’

and the girl tried to flutter her eyes.

Tarzan said “I’m a guy

who would catch a girl’s eye;

I am handsome and muscular too.

In this jungle I’ve found

there are no girls around.

So my dear you will just have to do.

And I know you’ll agree;

there are none out do ME.

I can climb I can hunt, I can shoot.

So please marry me Jane;

oh I know you’re quite plain.

But compared to the Apes you’re quite cute.”

So young Jane got her man

and her WILD life began;

it was SO wild she struggled to cope.

So if YOU are like Jane, and incredibly plain.

Just get out there and don’t give up hope!!!!

Wild Thing

“Take a walk on the wide side”, she said with a smirk

Come on and be cool now, don’t be a jerk

I looked at her funny, so funny indeed

Not even sure if she’s talking to me

 

Red hair and nails, her lips just a glowing

Mini skirt, high heels, her lady thing showing

I kept to myself, didn’t pay her no mind

She shouted, “Hey buddy, you’ll like what you find”

 

I was feeling quite nervous, sweat on my brow

I know it is me she is talking to now

I strode a bit faster, my eyes straight ahead

She said “Come back mister”, yes that’s what she said

 

Fishnet her stockings, cleavage revealed

I reached for my wallet, make sure it’s concealed

Now I was running, the sidewalk a blur

But there was no way I was outrunning her

 

Clippity clop, her Pradas were banging

Earrings this long, I could hear the things clanging

The closer she got, the faster I ran

She screamed, “Please stay honey, for I need a man”

 

It’s then that she caught me, so out of breath

The smell of her perfume scared me to death

I said, “I’ve no money, not even a buck”

She answered, “No problem, that I was in luck”

 

Her teeth they were crooked, yes that I was seein

She had no accent but looked European

It’s then that I noticed, then that I saw

She was no woman, no woman at all

 

Five o’clock shadow, of that I was sure

Something familiar, I’d seen her before

Those eyes and that nose, I said with a lurch

Aren’t you the preacher, that Methodist Church?

 

Now his look was funny, so funny indeed

He shouted “Amen” while running from me

I didn’t give chase, no there was no sense

He ran cross the street, jumped over the fence

 

I stood there and laughed for what I now saw

His right high heel broke, on his arse he did fall

His mini skirt flying, his wanker now free

It looked like a peanut, so small it could be

 

I stared as he disappeared clean out of sight

Red hair and fishnets, gone with the night

I laughed once again and now must confide

You’ll never catch me walking his wild side

Well I am assuming this is a different Jack (just Jack?) Because neither of these were written by the jack I know and love I dont think...
While they were both pretty cute I have to go with #2 .. it was hysterical and the ending was priceless... shallimar

This wasn't a rumble, just all in good fun....
Well, this one is a tough choice. Both are strong in reason as much as rime, both stories seemed to turn on the dime, both seem to have what could be called a happy ending but there's only one who's vote I am pending. I grinned and I laughed hard and so wide, but only one person really chose to walk on the wild side that would be "Jane". So I give it to Doc, but....I thank Jack for NOT walking all the way on the wild side of that preacher.

How did I miss this? While I enjoyed them both, I would have to say #2

Posted 10 Years Ago


I liked them both, I guess the second was written by Jack, well the first is ofcose by Doc, and I dont want to choose between the two coz they are all good. This is a nice challenge Frieda and the two great poets nailed it right.

Posted 10 Years Ago


Both amusing.... It's very difficult to chose between them.... I might resort to counting their syllables and give it to someone on a technicality ? !

Poem number 1!
That was amazing!! Lol the second was definitely entertaining, but I have to say the plain jane one appealed to me more. Not that I am a plain jane or anything ;P. They were both well executed and captivating. Loved them :)
