      Yes I find sharing poems and light hearted things makes me feel lighthearted and happier.

      My poetry is mostly serious – on green issues and looking after our earth rather better than we do now. Sorry. You may have this though if you like, It speaks of finding joy in small things whatever the circumstances
      I saw a Jay

      The brightest of the crows
      In gayest garb.
      Hopping amongst
      The bleak, bare branches,
      Gobbling the last few berries

      Across the silent vale,
      Where cold frost clung
      To twigs and grass,
      A white rump flashing
      Marking his every movement

      Continuous cold held sway;
      The forest floor,
      Frozen and hard,
      Seemingly lifeless
      In the harsh grip of winter.

      No sparkling sunbeams split
      The sombre skies.
      The winter chill,
      Veiling the valley,
      Brought me no cheering comfort

      But then today
      I saw a Jay

      Ok I have a few that should make your belly rolling.

      That’s the same valentine card you got me last year, “that’s because my feelings for you haven’t changed” 🤣😂

      My boss asked me to start the presentation with the joke , so I put my payslip on the first slide.🤣😂
      Do you ever look at your body and regret , all the junk food you’ve eaten then, proceed to comfort yourself by eating more junk food 🤣😂

      If you work from home you might go multiple days without speaking to another human being but they are the downsides too 🤣😂

      When a hostess at a restaurant says “table for two”. I like to act surprised and “say you can see him too” 🤣😂

    • Yogagirl 18th February 2021 at 8:38 pm

      Yes I love comedy in poetry… And I try to add that to mine … I always loved Pam ayres … So she is great inspiration!!!

      • barefoot steve 23rd February 2021 at 1:53 pm

        Hi Yogagirl
        Thanks for your reply.
        Pam is going strong – I saw her live a few years ago and had a great evening.
        Have you got a poem to share with me? X

      I was in the restaurant yesterday when I suddenly realised I had a desperate need to pass gas. The music was really, Really loud, So I timed my gas with the beat of the music. After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I’ve finished my coffee, and noticed that everyone was staring at me…… then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod 🤣😂🤣😂

      Hi Taz
      Thanks for your jokes- made me smile 😊I looked in my attic today and was amazed to find a Stradivarius and a constable!
      Only trouble is Stradivarius couldn’t paint and constable’s violin is crap.

      A young artist exhibits his work for the first time…
      And a well-known art critic is in attendance.
      The critic Says to the young artist, “would you like my opinion on your work?”
      “Yes, says the artist.
      “It’s worthless,” says the critic
      The artist replies, “ I know but tell me anyway”. 🤣😂🤣😂

      Another giggle for you all

      The Adult shop

      I told the assistant about the bedroom antics

      How we were more about snoring and less about romantic

      And she offered to make up a pack

      The top sellers to bring the life back

      The first was the master vibrator

      Well I wasn’t sure where it would fit

      So I told her we’d leave that one

      Till wed got things going a bit

      Then she showed me 3 little tubes

      Scented, sensuality creams and lubes

      Well I just thought it would be a bit messy

      make things a bit more slippery than sexy

      I told her it might stain me sheets

      Leave that one for next week

      She brought out a book with short stories

      Said each one was erotic and spicy

      But at nearly £8 each

      I thought they were a bit pricey

      Then she got me a peep hole bra

      But there was nothing bigger than extra large

      So I had an idea

      I left the shop

      I’ve cut some holes in the bra I’ve got

      And really at our age that’s enough for Jack

      I don’t want to give him a heart attack.

      This is the last of 32 verses by Victoria Woods ” lets do it “
      Not bleakly,
      Not meekly.
      Beat me on the bottom with a Woman’s Weekly.
      Let’s do it!
      Let’s do it tonight!.

      I thought you wanted OUR funny poems – not Spike Milligan’s So here is one of mine for a smile

      I Do

      I do love the dainty lass who lives across the way
      She has a cheerful, chubby face, her name is Daisy May

      I do love a bit of cheese a-melting on me toast
      My Daisy uses Wensleydale that what I like the most.

      I do love her apple pie with lots of clotted cream
      She makes it with sultanas in, it really tastes a dream

      I do love some crackling with a juicy Sunday roast
      But my Daisy’s goose with trimmings is what I love the most

      I do love a-holding hands with lovely Daisy May
      And when I popped the question she agreed to name the day

      She’s an angel in the kitchen, you should taste her rabbit stew
      And I just can’t wait until the day she sweetly says “I do”

    • Deleted User 15th March 2022 at 11:58 am

      Hope you enjoy this.

      Algernon Ponsonby Battersley Plim
      Was awfully jolly – but just a bit dim.

      As an infant in arms he would chuckle and coo,
      Though his other end often made people say “phew.”

      His face was a picture of childish delight
      As he failed to push shapes through the holes which were right.

      His sweet smile as a toddler attracted acclaim;
      But he did not appear to recall his own name.

      At school he was popular – “jolly old Plim,”
      Though the three “R”s it seems were a mystery to him.

      They all liked young Algie and found him such fun;
      Yet at cricket he always forgot he should run.

      On social occasions his manners were good;
      His intelligence, sadly, was rather like wood.

      Though he found conversation a bit of a chore,
      Since he made people happy they came back for more.

      His Pa was concerned that he never would find
      A suitable wife of the upper class kind.

      Still he found a young filly he wanted to please,
      So he sent her some flowers – but they just made her sneeze.

      At the annual hunt ball he was keen to impress
      As he whirled her around – and then trod on her dress.

      They went for a picnic, the weather was fine;
      But he couldn’t work out how to open the wine.

      Still this lovely young filly did not seem to mind,
      She told all her fwends he was “fwightfully kind.”

      They were married at last, the wedding was grand –
      Though he did put the ring on the girlie’s wrong hand.

      He’d booked for a honeymoon full of romance;
      In a far away place, ‘neath the moon they would dance.

      But his cheque sort of bounced; and they had to make do
      With a room at his Aunt’s and a trip to the zoo.

      Ecstatically happy he lived out his life;
      And his children adored him and so did his wife.

      I must end my tale here and I hope you will note
      There’s a moral within this short tale wot I wrote

      For it all goes to show that the world will not mind
      If you’re just a bit dim – – if you’re cheerful and kind.
