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

Could never imagine the ways
Our United States flag would be blessed
To fly on the Moon and Mount Everest.

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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

                 Cleopatra queen of Egypt, the black beauty
                 Well educated, great politician, also witty.
                 Her exotic charisma and magnetic attraction
               whelmed Julius Caesar to tie romantic relation.

                Couple kept happy marital status
                Till Caser was assassinated by Brutus.
                Strong seduction of Cleopatra compelled Mark Antony
                to fall in love and make a knot of matrimony.

A majestic match

Our gracious Queen, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary
Came to the throne aged twenty-five, which proved quite scary.
In every walk of life she sets the pace.
When post arrives she's met by a familiar face.

Philip, of noble stock, her blunt but dashing prince,
Is apt to put his royal foot in it which makes her wince.
He fathered offspring Andrew, Edward, Charles and Anne.
It's rumoured that he's 'Lisbeth's greatest long-term fan!

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.
