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.

This Clerihew's For You


Don't cross swords with A Poet Destroyer,
pretentious jousts really do annoy her
Her weapon of choice: a crossbow or a saber
she'll Cupid your mind, turn your rhymes to confetti paper


Dedicated to Poet Destroyer for being the first one to welcome the Romantic Warrior to the Poetry Soup community. Much love to you.

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...

Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind

Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind

Farrokh Bulsara a.k.a. Freddie Mercury
British singer, songwriter known universally
Confirmed he had AIDS and then died the next day
His music through Queen still rocks us all the way

Came a man from Zanzibar named Farrokh
Whose tastes were both flamboyant and baroque 
For fame he was ready
Changed his name to Freddie
After his death millions still love this bloke

A Heathrow baggage handler prior to fame
Wrote a song about his favorite cat, Delilah by name
In his personal life he was very shy, gentle and kind
His life and times are “guaranteed to blow your mind”

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

wears overalls time and again.

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

Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth the first of England
Had many suitors who vied for her hand
She doubted love, or was not keen 
And so she died a virgin queen.

I flap my fins and love to have fun.
And sometimes when I eat bad algae,
I make the water a little bit bubbly!

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.

In Jesus Alone

This world cannot offer the level of Love,
or the Joy found in Jesus alone,
From the oceans below to the mountains above,
I no longer consider this 'Home'.

Shallow pleasures of Sin, for which I were a slave,
Began many wars of the past,
They Remain beside footprints approaching the grave,
The Door to the Joy which will last.

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

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi


Hindus fighting Muslims, and brother slaying brother,

          made peace to save his life, loved more than any other.

               Dear Bapu, your greatest weapons, thereof ...

     the power, nonviolence, the strength ... LOVE.

Faith


Faith's a little ball of white fluff.  
She's full of love and other stuff 
That makes her spin in circles and wiggle.  
She's not fussy; she'll eat anything a pig'll.
