Wishing you a Grinchley good holiday season,

It’s The Most Horrible Time of the Year

by Rhyme In Time

Based on It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

It’s the most horrible time of the year.
With the kids fricking yelling
While everyone’s telling me “Be of good cheer”.
It’s the most terrible time of the year.

Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency

by Nick Anthony

Corralled in the narrow alley
An incalculable mass of humanity
Drunkenly bumbles and stumbles along,
Skipping in hiccuping rhythm,
Belting (and belching) drinking songs,
With the flow of the fleshy river.

Limerick – Fall

by Venkat

Mr. and Mrs. Bee went to skydive to be light

Balloons in belly of a sky, in suits tight

Lighter than air, thin as cloud

Feather landing on moon, proud

Quuen-in-law stung, they so fell back in fright

Ravens told me my Lenore
Was dead. I said, “I know.”
That’s why I’ve blocked my chamber door.
I’ve had my fill of birds before,
But now their rapping comes once more.
Perhaps there’s hope for poor Lenore?
If not those birds can go.

I am linking this to Jilly’s Challenge in honor of Poe’s The Raven and dVerse Quadrille hosted by De Jackson (WhimsyGizmo) where the prompt word is “hope”.

Tyranny of the To Do List

by pranabaxom

Wrote this poem about three years back but did not post in my blogsite till recently.

Fear and persecution
Of the incomplete to-do-list,
Keeps me awake at night,
Robbing me of my beauty sleep.

Monster Noises

by Frank Hubeny

My foot pounds hard upon the floor.
A hand grabs on the bedroom door.
The voice says low, “The monster’s here!”
There’s scrambling feet and giggling fear.

A “Spouse Texting” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

The backspace button’s a valuable tool.
It can prevent you from acting the fool.
Before you hit “send,”
It’s best to pretend…
And comply with the “spouse texting” rule!

Noisy Silent Nonsense

by Frank Hubeny

That noise is mostly silence
Like chatter in one’s mind,
Like giggling done by things that run
And wanting only to have fun,
But fun is hard to find.

Or anywhere than here or where

No Doubt

by russtowne

No Doubt

Whether the cup is half full or half empty

Of this I have no doubt,

It depends whether I’m pouring something in

Or drinking something out.

With Love,

Pack Mule

by russtowne

She says, “We don’t need a shopping cart

I’ll just get an item or two.”

So why am I clutching thirty three things

When she’s only halfway through?

How slow must I be

She can still trick me?

When I say I’ll be done in five minutes and she’s waiting for me

She tells me I’m taking ten when it’s only been three

But when she says she needs five minutes for her to be done

I’m still waiting and waiting when it’s been thirty-one!
