A mouse in her room woke Miss Doud
Who was frightened and screamed very loud
Then a happy thought hit her
To scare off the critter
She sat up in bed and just meowed
Advice in Abundance
Unsolicited advice free and abundant:
So much of it there its often redundant.
When I was a lad and easily impressed:
I listened and nodded at the experts' behest.
Opinions they flaunted on a scale universal:
Expounding at length without forethought or rehearsal.
With style and emotion, each made a case:
Of factual content there was rarely a trace.
Middle age found me as the consummate cynic:
Quick to retort and given to mimic.
With the passage of time I relaxed my position:
Improvised wisdom doesn't require a logician.
In the twilight of life there is time for a chat:
I now render advice at the drop of a hat.
A Fishy 'Tail' of Woe
I've been hooked
I've been iced
I've been scaled
and then sliced
I've been stacked
I've been looked at
dipped in batter
and cooked in fat
I've been sold
I've been bought
then been wrapped
next to a chook
I've been driven
I've been opened
served with chips
who have not spoken
I've been picked at
I've been deboned
drenched in lemon juice
I feel so alone
I've been forked
I've been cut
I think I'm running
out of luck
Now he bites me
And despite me
I'm done...like a dinner!

Over the lips, and down the throat,
May you never wake up, next to a goat.
I'd cross the hottest desert,
I'd swim the deepest sea,
I'd climb the highest mountain,
But I can't come over tonight because it's raining.
