Cats and doggerel

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

(With thanks to Flaneur for the title)

If I could write as fast as I
Could think then I would surely try
To put on paper all I think
And drown the world in floods of ink.
But thinking is a quicker art
Than writing is and so I start
To wonder what the world has lost
And if the lack of time's the cost?
I'm sure I cannot be alone,
I really need a dictaphone.

If I were smart I'd add some lines
About the man who uses
A Dictaphone to store his rhymes
And all his friends amuses.

"You use a Dictaphone?" I'd cry
(Respecting present scansion)
A clever trick, I can't deny
I only have this Samsung.
Same old nonsense.

Not sure if this belongs on this thread. An aunt (a deputy head) taught it to me when I was very little and I loved quoting it as an excuse to get out of studying.

The more you stud,y the more you know,
The more you know, the more you can forget,
The more you can forget, the more you do forget,
The more you do forget, the less you know.
So why study?

Beans, beans are good for your heart.....
The more you eat them, the more you fart,
The more you fart the better you feel
So eat your beans with every meal.

The trolley dolly fired a volley
Bubbles shot it back
She's not the only one it seems
To think he needs a smack.

A fart is bubble of compressed air which leaves the body at ease
It warms the bed on a frosty night & suffocates all the fleas.
