Olive eloi

There is a girl, Olive_eloi
Who is in love with a Pinoy
She wants to tell him what she feels
But loses out kicking her heels.

Clinton and Lewinsky - bawdy

Bill Clinton, president
was seldom hesitant,
'It's not adultery,' he said,
'if somebody is "giving you head."'

Monica Lewinsky and dress
are famous for a yucky mess;
when DNA proved Clinton a liar,
he wished he'd shot a little higher...

Prince Jahan and Mumtaz

Eyes met as they walked the market place
Mumtaz and Prince Jahan hearts did race
betrothed for five years before his bride
fourteen children before she died

Prince Jahan it was true love at first sight
distraught at her demise, a shrine of ivory white
built in her honour "Crown of Palaces: now stands
the Taj Mahal is famous throughout the lands

Count Dracula's Love

Count Dracula’s Love

Count Dracula’s love is blood—sweet and bright red, 
And he wants to bite your neck while you’re in bed!
Seeking his next eternal bride on this All Hallows’ Eve,
His “undead” bite makes him happy and isn’t a pet peeve!

Where You'll Find Me

In forests full of winding trees
With a gusty flower-scented breeze
And tiger-cats forever running free
This is where you'll find me

I live in oceans, blue and vast
I stand on a great ship's mast
Pirates come, we share some tea
That is where you'll find me

Underground, where monsters roam
Waging war over a lost home
Low deep growls the humans flee
This is where you'll find me.

Flying high with butterflies
Holding children when they cry
Thinking about when you kissed me
That is where you'll find me

All alone in an empty place 
Coming, going without a trace.
An undying romance, love that whirls
You will find me in your DreamWorld

If Only Words Could Express

If only words could express 
The depths of God's love
In sending His Son
From Heaven above
How He came to give life
& set sinners free
Then died to take death
& let the blind see.

If only words could express
The price that He paid
For those who have failed Him
& often betrayed
How He rescues the fallen
& requires no return
For salvation we each are
Unable to earn.

If only words could express
The riches in Christ
The freedom, redemption
& limitless life
This is Neither for hope
Nor a Goal to achieve
Not deserved or rewarded
...A Gift to receive.

The Look

                                           Love is a word
                                           that some may abuse.
                                           Love is the word
                                           that gave my heart to you.
                                           Love sometimes hides
                                           behind angry eyes.
                                           Eyes become lazy
                                           and see things that are hazy.
                                           Remember this my dear,
                                           although eyes can be misleading,
                                            the love you took from me
                                            will never be forgiven.

Love True

In this moment we begin anew
Memories of the past fade, hope and trust renewed

It is said there are things in life simply meant to be 
no rhyme or reason, elusive answers not clear to see

Finding your soulmate is precious, a rare event Indeed
Not recognizing it is common, grasping hold when you do is key

For sensations of love are fickle, thoughts often deceive
the bodies touch tickles, leaving illusions that cannot be

Only when souls unite can true love grow
for the soul knows only truth, it stays pure as untouched snow

We enter this together my darling, not out of necessity or need
We can conquer life together, souls united, there is nothing we cannot achieve

ANDY AND MARY

Andy and Mary used the words ," Madam and Sir"
They were two inseparable brother and sister.
They went everywhere, talked to different people...
shaking their hands and warning them of Hell!


Andy and Mary sang together,
regardless of rainy weather!
Their message was always new,
never making anyone feel blue! 


Andy and Mary respected, helped and loved everyone:
imagine their sadness when they would be gone! 
Look at us: don't we spread good will as they have? 
So hear the wisdom in our sweet words and feel the love!

POETIC REALM

Romeo was handsome and warm;
he often lured Juliet into his poetic realm...
he had a charming smile and vocal skills,
only climbed balconies with roses, not hills.

So Confused

Am I in love?
or am I fooled by the words he says
Am I being played?
by the words he tells me
which I know isn’t the truth
so much lust
he thinks I don’t know of
but yet I stay
pretending as if I love him
If I told him what I knew
I asked myself would he betray me
Yet, Im So Confused
Im stuck in a black hole
where my mind goes insane
trying to find a way out of this pain

If I was to do him wrong
as if he does me
If I was to wait every time he turned his back
to flirt with another male
tell them things only lovers would do or say
If I said something that wasn’t right to him
oh now he’s pissed
Yet, Im So Confused
Im stuck with a liar
who says he loves me
Yet he still looking or flirting
with the next main chick 
Yet and still
Im So Confused

Cleopatra and Mark Antony

Cleopatra and Mark Antony
 
Cleopatra fell in love with Mark Antony 
She became ruler of Egypt by Antony's decree.
Forced to flee Egypt, her rumored suicide plan...
She let an asp kill her over the loss of her man.

Antony so beguiled by love for his Queen's desire
Giving her much land provoked Roman senate's ire
After Cleopatra became Mark Antony's wife
He thought she was dead, so he took his own life.

MY PASTOR AND HIS WIFE AS GREAT GODLY LOVERS

Anchored upon great genuine godly love’s magnificence
My Pastor toward his wife exemplified genuine care’s iridescence
Beyond romantic zeal around marriage vow’s faith-seal, truly wondrous
Proven by 43rd triumphant wedding anniversary, indeed glorious!

Buttressed by the Saviour’s compassion of virtuous charity
My Pastor’s first and only lady sweetly epitomized fervent selflessness-serenity
Living well with her “I do” to husband-leader and ultimate sweetheart forever
Toward more blissful years of togetherness midst warmth of being in-love ever!

Dedicated to my Pastor, RevEd Laurena and his wife, Ma’am Dhel Laurena
who are celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary on January 16, 2019.

African Queen


Old Charlie ran a river boat,

          With naught but love to keep afloat.

               Still, his courage was but equal to his heart,

     And he gave both for her safety, from the start..



Now, Dear Rose was prim and proper,

          Yet, not hell or flood could stop her,

               And amidst the storms of war, she fell in love..

     With Old Charlie, the knight sent her.from above.

I Love Lucy

Lucy and Ricky had a television show
She was hilarious with Ethel and Fred
Her vita vita vegimen and chocolate delight
Made everyone laugh all night

Ricky was a cabana singer 
Who played bongos on the Lucy show
He could never figure out what Lucy was up to
Until the end of the I Love Lucy show

King Eddie The VIIIth And Wallie Simpson

King Edward The VIIIth, pitiable blighter, abdicated the throne.
He had the hots for an American divorcee - this the Brits would not condone!
He was King for a spell and the paramours continued their torrid romance.
They later wed, he was busted to Duke of Windsor and they settled in France.


Wallis Simpson was middle-class but knew how to climb the social rungs.
She was twice divorced which triggered a legion of wagging tongues.
They met at Lady Furness's digs and Wallie thought Eddie not all that sexy,
But they wed incurring upon The Archbishop of Canterbury a case of apoplexy!

John F and Jacqueline Kennedy Fairy Tale Camelot

35th President John FKennedy
Somehow developed major enemies
Their seemingly styled Camelot
Dissolved when extramarital affairs were caught

His wife the graceful Jacqueline Kennedy
Drew Americans in to total empathy
When her love was killed that day
But both of them had affairs to play   

There is no perfect rhyme for Kennedy but I went ahead with that one anyway.
The title line would not let me use apostrophe or a period in itLOL

I have read that President Kennedy had many affairs but I do not know that for a fact and also MrsKennedy had affairs as well so I have readThey say don't spread gossip but it is written in books

Fred and Ethel

Fred never bought a pedestal for Ethel's keep and he provided her with only things cheap. Despite being a grouch and miser, it was oft clear Ethel was Fred's desire.
Ethel loved, fussed at and foiled her man while giving his happiness all one can. The more she and Lucy grew trouble, the more she longed for Fred on the double.

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGAN

Duchess of Sussex nee Megan Markle
From an actress to a Duchess with diamonds that sparkle
Just like in the movies enchanting our Prince Harry
Now forever doth have servants, for to fetch for her and carry 

Duke of Sussex our Prince Harry
Females young and females old, dreamt it would be them he’d marry
Loving him; desiring him; imagining life with handsome Prince Redhead
Day dreams destroyed that historic sunny day, when Harry wed Megan instead

KERMIT AND MISS PIGGY



When Kermit the Frog
Found love at his synagogue
It was unexpected
How instantly they connected

The lovely Miss Piggy
Posing right next to Twiggy
Batted twice her eyelashes coyly
Strategically waving her doily
