A Bod with a Mish-Mash that’s Wrong

{Insanity given sanction by a reading of Edwards Lear’s poem ‘The Dong with a Luminous Nose’.}

When my body does shake and my mish-mash goes pong
Under the boxes of ticks and the strain,
I take to the pen and I scribble all day
’bout the thoughts that take over my brain.

As my knees knock out sideways and my bottom falls down
Over the mountains of books I’ve not read,
I sit where I fell and I quibble all day
’bout the titles I’d print in my shed.

Jay Cool’s not a bad name; in fact it’s a smart name
Next to the title of ‘Pink Peas – not Green!’
I like it a lot and I pebble my way
’bout the back-tracks that lead to the Queen.

She likes my idea and asks for a dance
With the genius who’s stolen her throne.
I find both my feet and offer to prance
’bout the corgis who ask for my phone.

When my body does shake and my mish-mash goes wrong
Despite my antics with dogs who make calls
I take to the pen and I scribble all day
’bout the odd bods who dangle their balls!

I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
