@neologist,
The downthumb bum's
Not worth a crumb
It is a worthless stunt
He scuttles in
Then does his work
The stupid little


person.

@Lordyaswas,


http://www.rogerebert.com/scanners/young-haven-hamilton-a-poem-by-henry-gibson

Quote:
Haven: "And now I'd like to do a special old favorite, the song that got me started in this business that's been so kind to me, a song you've loved through the years, and one I'm sure you're gonna love tonight: "Keep a' Goin'"!


Well, if you strike a thorn or rose, Keep a-goin'! And if it hails or if it snows, Keep a-goin'! Ain't no use to sit an' whine 'Cause the fish ain't on your line Bait your hook and keep a-tryin'-- Keep a-goin'!

When the weather kills your crop, Keep a-goin'! Why, it takes work to reach the top, Keep a-goin'! If the skys look dark and gray Tell the world you'll be OK And don't forget to pray! Keep a-goin'!

If you're up against the wall, Keep a-goin'! Swallow hard and just stand tall, Keep a-goin'! S'pose you're out of any dime, Bein' broke ain't any crime! It'll all work out in time, Keep a-goin'!

And if the doctor says you're through, Keep a-goin'! Why he's a human just like you, Keep a-goin'! Ain't no law says you must die, Wipe them tears from off your eye, Give ol' life another try -- Keep a-goin'!

Ain't no law says you must die, Wipe them tears from off your eye, Trust the Good Lord up on high -- He'll help! Keep a-goin'! Keep a-goin'!

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
You are so very naughty
When seeking a poem
Your fertile mind doth roam
Into the realm of the bawdy
Mr. Green


Well commented.
You've pierced into Lordy's ridiculousness, You "insulted" him and he echoed with you as if he's a masochist.

Mr. Green

And an "OUCH" noise from the direction of neologist. Mr. Green
neologist: why have you hit me?
Lordy: sorry for the mistake.
neologist: make no mistake next time!
Lordy: ye...s...buddy, just hope my mind will not roam into the realm of the bawdy. Mr. Green

Lordyaswas is, I hear
A man of unlimited cheer
And should we get together
No matter the weather
We'd hoist up a flagon of beer

The boy stood on the burning deck
Playing a game of cricket
The ball rolled down his trouser leg
And hit the middle wicket

Till we are drunk in euphoria
Like happy pigs that fly
"That is a lie!"
Protests Lordy
"We are bunnies
Together-
Ready for bed fight"

The special entree for today
Is deep fat fried fish filet
Served with tartar. I like catsup
'Scuse me now. I'm gonna retchup

Carrington-Briggs cared not two figs
Whether he lived or died
But when he was dead, he lay on his bed
And cried and cried and cried.

There was a young man from Kent
Whose dick was exceedingly bent
To save himself trouble
He bent the thing double
And instead of coming, he went.

@Lordyaswas,
A determined jihadist named Bass
Stuck a huge IED up his ass
they found all of his liver in the Suhwanee River
and his balls in a tree in MAdras

I saw a little elephant standing in my garden,
I said 'You don't belong in here', he said 'I beg your pardon?',
I said 'This place is England, what are you doing here?',
He said 'Ah, then I must be lost' and then 'Oh dear, oh dear'.

'I should be back in Africa, on the Serengeti Plain',
'Pray, where is the nearest station where I can catch a train?'.
He caught the bus to Finchley and then to Mincing lane,
And over the Embankment, where he got lost again.

The police they put him in a cell, but it was far too small,
So they tied him to a lampost and he slept against the wall.
But as the policemen lay sleeping by the twinkling light of dawn,
The lampost and the wall were there, but the elephant was gorn!

So if you see an elephant, in a Jumbo Jet,
You can be sure that Africa's the place that he is trying to get!

Don't bed fight so hard, Lordy.
We want both of you and neologist to be alive. Cool

@Lordyaswas,
Translated:

A dozen plus a gross plus a score,
Plus three times the square root of four,
Divided by seven,
Plus five times eleven,
Equals nine squared plus not a bit more.

A poet named Declon McCann
Wrote verse that never would scan
He said "I'll admit.
I'm a bit of a twit."
But it's just that I like to fit as many words into the last line as I possibly can.
