Poetry Thursday 113 - Lizards, Lite Bites and much more




Lizard

Quick intermittent motion makes her
unpredictable.
She hunts the vermin in our houses
and smiles at her own success.
When replete she finds the warming sun
and tries to absorb its heat to
cheer her icy blood.
Tails are two a penny but no need
to catch her – she is good.

Lite Bite

Did you ever bite an apple and find a wriggly worm,
or eat a ripe banana that made your tummy squirm?

Did you have to visit the dentist to have a crown repair,
because you bit too hard on a pip from a juicy pear?

Did you order a salad in a café and share it with a caterpillar,
or eat an avocado that tasted like Polyfilla?

Have you never learned the dangers of eating too much fruit?
That with a surfeit of good things off to the loo you’ll shoot!

A brighter idea would seem to me 
to leave the evil fruit on the tree!

The Bull




The bull, and I make no mistake
gives us rib, rump and sirloin steak.
Some would say we should be thankful.
I call it stupid of the bull!

The Sheep


The sheep if I am quite correct
gives mutton, shoulder, leg and neck,
some wool to stop us being chilly.
I just think that sheep are silly!
