Would you still love me if I killed your leg?
If I cut it off and baked it, would you still love me?
If I served it to you, and you got mad cow, would you still love me?
Would you still love me if I went after your other leg?

grandson, memory, moon,
miracle of a moon rock
in a glass case
somewhere on earth
ordinary in 2019
as my grandson shrugs
i marvel as i wait
at the age of eight
for Armstrong’s footfall
on Tranquility Base
before that time
the man in the moon
and the cow laughed
and the moon was rumored
to be made of cheese
mankind took a bite out if it
and now only glass
stands between me and the moon
if i could only touch it
nowadays we love
to the moon and back
and we target Mars

Reese’s Pieces was ET’s only choice
And it’s loved by many children as well
And it was that candy that gave him voice
For Reese’s Pieces I’ll ring that cow bell
Reese’s peanut butter has its own taste
And Reese’s Pieces are easy to hold
And Hershey’s candies are never a waste
Instead of M & Ms Pieces are bold
Reese’s made the cups first pieces later
If its Reese’s it is peanut butter
We love it even the candy hater
Reese’s Pieces takes you from the gutter
If your life happens to be in pieces
Glue it together with Reese’s Pieces

DEVIL'S HIDDEN RANCH
Coyote howl, dogs growl
Gunshots, dead cow
Red barn left unlock
Horseshoe upon death's door
Tequila in a cup
Salt of cocaine, shadows of insanity
Guitar string, sad song
Bandit near the door, wife on the floor
Yelling out her name, he's gone insane
Loaded gun, life is done
Far and near ending his intoxicating fear
The road under the sun
A coward in his path
Responding to the Devil's wrath
In a Hidden Ranch in Mexico!!!!!!

inspirational, introspection, life, school, me, me, school, middle school, high school,
My younger years - I don't know how
At six and seven folks had a cow!
The journey through the mind begins
Do not think the devil wins!
In middle school has a crash
Doing some things rather rash!
In high school had good grades
Then they dropped - almost like Hades!
Drove and walked many a mile
Just to see myself and smile!
God rescued me and set me free
From a thing called apathy!
Love God's plan - it makes me smile
To think of things that are worthwile!
I might have had to just stop college
But in experience have great knowledge!
Born to help others - don't you see?
I think it is reality!

business, funny, girlfriend-boyfriend, romance, slam, war, nice, me, nice,
i dont care who you are
or what you think of me
build me up and break me down
then take your "stuff"* and flee
i hate you
you know it too
so bring it to my plate
take a point and hold my ground
to not spew all my hate
you were so nice in the beginning
well, what the "heck"* are you now?
gone, love, thats what you are
a filthy ugly cow
i am still the nice guy
lord, you have said so much worse
and still im here, i still get by
a blessing, not a curse.
i didnt snap hard enough to say what i meant

funny love, husband,
There was an old woman called Hattie
whose hubby's name for her was fattie.
So she cooked his goose
hung him from a noose
then buried him in a cow pattie!

abuse, anti bullying, autumn, marriage, parody, sexy, violence,
Leanne was a farm girl at heart
She loved playing with her special cow
She used to eat her mums freshly made tart
Leanne didn't like her brothers sow
Oliver used to make the oil
Dan made the juice
Oliver used to oil up Leanne and the cows
Dan bit off her ear!
Leanne danced with the poodle
Leanne danced with the ****(erel)
Leanne's legs where like noodles
Leanne's ear went like a rock
I miss 'Bao to my bab' but Trish won't allow it
I'm scarred James will leave me
But Linda is by my side
I love Poetry soups!!!!!
----Dedicated to Linda (Poetry Destroyer A), and JB, you know who you're ;-) ---

Been in New York when I was young!
This accent is so innate in my clever well tongue.
You don’t understand how I say things,
Guess you’re a stupid one who just so love to sing…
Stab me behind my back!
Just doing the same in my own rack…
Forgive me for being so unique.
Can you just copy my same proud technique!?
This New York accent is a highly wow!
Bad as you are like a filthy mad cow…
By the way, you’re such an ugly petty Betty!
You’re a downer who usually makes me so messy!

father, hope, love, religion,
The time is now, the season nigh,
To lift our arms and voice up high
To kneel and bow down low
In reverent fear to work and sow
The time is now, the time is here
To open eyes, to clearly hear
Our Father’s heart, our Lord declares
Exposing lies and hidden snares
The time is now and mountains wait
To find the way or take the bait
To find the Lord or seek the snake
To drink the Water for thirst to slake
For faith is now and Love is here
That pulls His sons so close and near
To hug and kiss their dirty brow
To bring the wine and kills the cow

His finger is really quite bare;
The ring is no longer on there,
But he's used to it now
And he sees she's a cow -
No dripping about her affair.
*dripping – beef fat or slang for whinging

He promised to love me forever
Then again he was just being clever
He took back his love
So I gave him a shove
Headfirst in cow dung-my endeavor!

Mary had a little lamb, she also had a chicken
It's little beak hurt, but not as much as the lamb's kickin'
If she had a cow
Oh my love sure would go out to this munchkin

Thoughts by a Horse Owner
A farmer milks a cow for all it’s worth …but
a horse milks a farmer for all he’s worth!
Horses are an expensive proposition to say the least.
Try lavishing your love on another beast.
When you look upon a star and make a wish,
much cheaper to buy a little goldfish.
then if you can’t afford it
when your dream comes true,
just flush it down the loo.
Or if you’re into recycling, eat the little guy…
And for crying out loud,
quit wishing towards the sky!

Cow, tender mother
licks calf by cheek, brow, back and front-
mother feeds baby by breast
by Red Fiery |
My lover has a satan's Pride
for he is a devil in disguise..
true to his lord of deceit
he is a master of conceit...
born to kill, he knows his will
I wish to repay his capricious love
My heart lies with him in the ocean of desert..
I had a unique likeness for this malicious pervert....
so deep is the wound,the scar in my heart
the end is visible, but not the start...
the few more hours that i have now
I breath like a breathless cow...
My innocent love is torned in the darkness
like a shining star gleaming out of the hollowness
for those who have faced betrayals...
Betrayals cut deep wounds....

animals, happiness, imagination, nature,
Autumn on the farm,
Cows busy chewing their cuds,
Waiting to be milked.
I love cows!

Been chowing down Post Shredded Wheat
Since I was a young lad it's oh so sweet
Probably an acre by now
Milk from Bessie the cow
This breakfast supreme simply can't be beat

When people say, "I can't rhyme"
Believe me, I don't give them time
"You are lazy", which you want to hide
Instead, you may please confide
Rhyming demands hard hard-work
And you made noise "quark! quark! quark!"
You told, "I don't want to go to school"
Because you think schools are for the fools
I think, people who refuses to learn
Time will test them and hopefully burn
Their lazy words of shortcut turn
Would find no way home - to return
I love free verse, but rhyming is there too
I love Haikus' too and make those bijou
If you want to try, I can give you clue(s)
But, please don't sound like a cow, " moo! moo! moo!"

conflict, confusion, food, identity, new york, religious, silly,
Cars run down the road to New York City
Looking for cattle
There must be another way to make hamburgers
Not too many pastures in Manhattan
Traffic won't permit it
Going zero miles per hour is no way to hunt for dinner
What's McDonald’s secret
They sell billions every year
People in India are vegetarians
Animals have souls and ancestry
Cows carry signs in the city
“No buns or bumpers”
“Beep if you love Jesus”

There was a young thin cow of Holland
She would love to laze around on hot sand
Eating grass was well past
She wanted to have a blast
By munching organic fruits freshly canned

How to describe love, well I'll give it a shot
Like your first two wheeler, that's saying a lot
Like your very first ride on a ferris wheel
What an absolute thrill can't believe it's real
Suddenly that annoying girl next door
Creates a stirring right down to your core
When wrestling with her she was one of the guys
Now its different when you look in her eyes
Her lips seem more lush and inviting now
Think I just blew a gasket, holy cow
Oh those were the days as if it was yesterday
The feeling still there but it's now just wordplay
Maybe I'll come back when my days are done
As a gigolo, yee haw, that sure sounds like fun!

lost lovelife, love, me,
I guess I’m a winner because no confusion I’m losing
With no prized to gain while she did the choosing
To the decision she made that got me confusing
I’m told I’m the best and other choices are down
To take my place I’ll have to drop my crown
But why look for less, when the best is found
What do you want, you don’t have a clue
You want me in your life but not to love you
To make life easier, you say your heart’s through
If a mistake was made, my heart will love you
What’s the point of reviving when I was just kilt
The cow can no longer moo over spilt milk
I’m going to shine on my own and help failures sprout
But why the clock still ticks when the time ran out?
by Virginia Mitchell |
funny, lost love
I said, “You’re the cream of the crop!”
You called me your buttercup.
I milked the situation for all its worth,
As my dreams sat splendid before me.
Then, your life spilled out into the world,
And I became unwanted;
A container of spoiled passion
And curdled desires.
You dashed my hopes,
The tracks of you,
That old cow!

bullying, divorce, drink, feelings, people,
What is it with some men?
Is this what those nuptials meant?
You are turned into his mother figure,
A holy cow, meals, housework, rigour,
Maybe there's no luck in love,
So much for wedding doves....
"I am not your mother!"
I wished I'd yelled an another,
Maybe I don't know how to train a man,
Maybe a manual should come in a can,
Then you could have twins in tins,
Fully formed, no nappy pins,
Maybe it is the male gender,
They really want nannies for their benders,
Is this what those nuptials meant?
What is with some men?
