My cat Florrie was flattened by a lorry.
My old pa was run over by a car.
My mate Mike met quietus with a bike.
My pal Ron fought a red pantechnicon.
Poor old Sue claimed that nothing ever stopped her — until, one day, she took on a helicopter.
Now I’m all alone …
Do I really hear a drone?
Inspired by this post from Colin McQueen
or, Tony and Lofty
Tony the Ant 🐜
he just wanted to rant,
so he climbed up the plant 🌿
to talk to an elephant 🐘
whose first name was Lofty,
and ever and oft he
was seen as a softy
till one day he coughed. He
said, “Don’t underest-
imate me, ’cause it’s best
you don’t.” Then he confessed
“I’m not wearing a vest.
This skin is my own,
I don’t want to moan
but it’s not mine to loan.”
Then he hung up the phone.
Poor Tony the Ant 🐜
then climbed down the plant. 🌿
He sighed, “You just can’t
ever rant to an elephant.”
This is a kinda
… whatchamacallit …
on the tippama tongue,
if I knew it I’d bawl it.
But I ain’t got a clue, it
just hasn’t a home
in my mind — wait, I knew it!
They call it … a POEM!

Nonsense → Sense
Genuinely, when someone doesn’t?
Be aware of afterward!
It’s up to other users that they will assist so.
Here it takes place.

One has to have
a very clear idea of them
to stay clear of any surprises
Ensure the organization
you have selected prints out
and about an expert backup
(also known as “proof”)
that will help you
look into the shades, fonts,
just about any spelling flaws
and also the total design!
Besides this, a person
don’t need to
sort of collateral
in lieu of the actual
availed amount of the loan
and so, you like money
Thanks to the spammer who unwittingly provided this nonsense poem, an example of found poetry (aka spam poetry or spoetry);
I’ve merely formatted it
The Canada goose likes to wander
To sites far from way over yonder
From seas off Newfoundland to Europe it’s bound and
Once here looks for stream, lake and pond.
Er, why leave lands to fly over water?
It’s water that ought to support her!
It’s proved of great use as resource for the goose
And also resource for the gander.
But I’m told there’s no need to migrate:
We’ve long known that it’s grass that they ate.
Where there’s grass there is home — there’s no reason to roam —
Just a spot to go eat, swim, laze and mate.
