Though the lump was the size of a grain
And caused me no serious pain,
The doctors agreed
That there was a need
To gouge out a chunk of my brain.

Some think me incoherent
And think these words an ignorant rant
But
Eat the peanut not the hull
Bad apples are best to cull
Shoot an elephant and ignore an ant

Life is tough like a land mine
We all go through and learn to shine
Spreading our wings in all endeavors
Scraping our knees on tracks and rivers
Playing our hand to be truly
Until we achieve our lapis lazuli

The changeable climate of Wales
Encourages parasol sales;
They give umbrage in June
But are also a boon
In showers or pluvial gales.

The poor actor, at last night's rehearsal,
Felt his lines go in vap'rous dispersal.
At his urgent request
They performed a small test:
Prose will not be retained, but a verse'll.

Ole King Oleo had it all
A Jester named Lester
A Queen named Jean...but no Dunce
I hid undercover
Lest he discover
That I was a Dunce...once

She bang he bang life is a shell game
Yin Yang play game and play game more
Then Yin like poontang
Then Yang like yangyang
No more yin no more yang nevermore.

I write "paris, the city of love"
in my heart - tops, when push comes to shove -
But I'm deep in disgrace,
'Cause it's writ lowercase:
Can't recall what it's capital of.

In London the smoke used to shroud
Side streets in malodorous cloud;
Old-timers remember
One postwar December
When smog culled the capital's crowd.

To lose weight is a tough enterprise,
Thus, I offer this word to the wise:
Let not intake exceed
The cube root of your greed,
And your pants will diminish in size.
