Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants

now it seemed
that my jeans
were too baggy
(really quite saggy)

got a belt
and then felt
like they fit,
what a hit!

walked the street
with my feet,
wanted a coffee
and a toffee

ate some lunch
(more like brunch)
when my jeans
burst their seams

for the stitching
caused such itching...
stitched with wire!
Oh no, Sire!

found the guy
I did buy
these useless pants
... I shouted rants

bombed the shop
when a cop
looked at me,
for you see

he’s the liar...
trousers on fire.




[Non-Entry. In case I get reported by the Fun police.]

Fire Breathing

I spit fire,
   I’m not lying,
       I spatter flames,
You would desire,
   See me frying,
       Fire breathing games.
I burn lips,
   With a hypnosis,
       Bringing the heat,
With quick quips,
   Just know this,
       Lit, spit, repeat.
With some cornstarch,
   Or coffee creamer
       Even lamp oil,
Reverse skew arch,
   Like blowing reefer,
       Watch it toil.
Hold the torch,
   It will scorch,
       Then spit hard,
Hear the flame,
   It sounds insane,
       Be on guard.
I breathe fire,
   Like dragon’s ire,
       Fun silly game,
Then kiss her,
   Getting her stirred,
       I spit flame.
