The Good, The Bad And The Silly

When I first started blogging, I found a useful piece of advice on a writers blog:
Write badly every day. Today I decided to have a go.

The Good, The Bad and The Silly

Give me some of that food, dude
Give me some of that food

Give me some of that fun, hun
Give me some of that fun

Give me some of that love, dove
Give me some of that love

Give me some of that sleep, peep
Give me some of that sleep

        1. When I was doing the WordPress poetry course some of the bloggers were quite unhappy about being asked to write limericks. I say bring it on. It does the heart good, and nonsense is an art form. Spike Milligan is one of my greatest heroes.

          1. Ah, the limerick is a joy, especially for kids, I think. They are quick to write, funny and are usually really easy too, which is all great motivation for kids to write poetry. I guess your fellow WordPressers saw them as a lower art form. As you say, Millicam didn’t think so or Edward Lear, though I’ve heard Lear’s weren’t actually that amazing!

            1. It’s true. Lear’s limericks weren’t that great, but “The Owl And The Pussycat” was brilliant, and “The Jumblies”, and “The Pobble Who Had No Toes”.

              And then there’s Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky”. Masterful.

              I’ve strayed off the subject. I get excited about humorous verse.

              1. Oh, yes the Owl and the Pussycat’s really lovely – a classic. And though not a massive ‘Alice’ fan in some ways, the Jabberwocky is great. Loved the Monty Python’s take on it too 🙂

                1. When Monty Python was an TV, every Saturday people would be walking down the High Street acting out the most recent sketches -the Gumbies, or silly walks or whatever. It was amazing, and I have never known another comedy show to have that effect.

        1. It’s an idea, but I may have to put it on hold until I’ve studied some lyrics. Don’ wanna come like no shuck, so I’m gon go spark some bud wid mah homeys, get lifted…
          And then perhaps I’ll have a nice cup of tea with them.

    1. I love it! And I’m flattered. I want to have a go at tongue in chhek rap, but you just inspired me to compose a gift to you. I’m just finishing it now. I’ll try to get it posted this evening.
