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.

Free

I don't like
to be told
how to write
or mend lines,
but in this
case I guess
I'll have to.
He said three
weeks, well, psst,
give me five
minutes and pen
to show you
how I give the
world my stem.
Screw up they
called me, well,
I guess nothing
has really changed
but now the
truth is not
the same color.
Hell bound, but
before that I'll
be hellishly free.
Don't pretend to
know one minute
about me, when
all I give
you is seconds
to doubt me.

Self (abs.orbed)

I missed                you
(No small feat)
Your presence,      open
My eyes,               defeat
 
Empty,         moot hands
As music      intones
Party to some
Others shuffle       alone
 
(Lost in self)
Pitying my condition
I missed               you
Regret the admission
 
Wallflower, wolf hour
Which is true?
(Knows mal feet)
I                     missed you
Your presents,       open
Eyes deaf,                  eat
 
Empty,          mute hands
Muse akin tones
A party              twosome  
Others shuffle        alone
 
Loss,                       tin self
Pity -            my condition
I        missed                you
Regret, miyad mission
 
Truth be told
Eye was wrong
Full of pain
You were gone.
