Eating Out

 

He:
Oh my darling, stop giving me flap
That we never go out and you’re trapped.
Let’s go out somewhere classy
Where the rails are brassy
And the waitresses sit in your lap.

She:
Not a taco but super burrito
Will it take to wake up my libido.
Your chorizo is stale–
How about Chippendale’s?
We can check out some class wearing speedos.

I Decim-Ate It All

I had to eat the extra portion;
Now my colon’s in contortion.

All of it went in my face;
I ate it all, and left no trace.

Already had I had enough
To keep me flabby in the buff

But then another plate I ate.
This caused my guts to detonate,

Dinners past ex-herniate,
And cloud of brown to radiate.

The misty plague took many hues.
In clothes and hair did it infuse;

The cloud caused all around to grieve
And beg for oxygen reprieve.

If you wish your next mealtime to survive,
Try not to be there after I arrive.

It’s Raining Cats

“They say that pets can lengthen life and keep away depression.
These feral cats to send to mum would seem no great transgression.”

“I’ll get the catapult. We’ll want to leave a deep impression.”

Footnote in the Book of Life

From flesh rent fresh adrift, from breath unmoored;
Now frantic search for where my goodwill’s stored.

My mortal span on Earth has reached its end
And now to final judgement I descend.

Is there enough to mitigate the ill?
For demon-feast will I provide new fill?

Not every life that’s lived can be called glorious.
But tell me mine at least proved foot-notorious.

From Dread to Bed by Merest Thread

Theseus:
King Minos, this whole banquet is a farce.
You’ve brought us here to take it up the arse.
The legend of your bull falls far amiss-
This nonsense runs straight over precipice.

Minos:
Yet no such luck, young lad, there’ll be for you;
My Minotaur shall gore your flesh straight through.
As children go, he’s been an aberration,
Of Pasiphae and bull collaboration.
When Neptune’s beast such hospitality she gave
I knew of such must issue be depraved.

Ariadne (aside to Theseus):
They keep the creature trapped in walls that maze;
On youths like you in batches does he graze.
All final qualms do swallow now and dread
The creature’s wrath–or mine; here, take this thread,
And after you have gored the creature’s head,
Use this to find your way to me–and bed.

Shear Pink

When I think
Upon the pink
It brings me nearly
To the brink.

Who knew that wink
In biped crink
Could spill such ink,
Whole day could kink?

While it drips into the sink
Perhaps I’ll have another drink
And do my best this wound to prink,
This papercut from which I shrink.

Bee Careful

I swear it was just temporary,
The lid left off the apiary.

It’s not a reason to be bitter;
Sweet’s abundant from these critters.

The little part I’d left exposed
Feels better now with gauze enclosed.

The only source of worry left is you,
Whom nest of angry bees does now pursue.
