Thankyou. Unfortunately of the 300 or so poems I have written over the last 22 years only a few are funny ones. some are about ANZAC, world wars, childrens, Australiana, sadness, etc. So for this site I select them carefully.
But here is another. I dont think I've posted this one before.
THE BLACK WIDOW
The male black widow spider
tried all his life
he tried to tickle the hairy legs
of his larger black widow wife.
Finally he had a win
something at last to gloat
She began to laugh aloud
as his leg slid down her throat.
Poor little male black widow
was always to get into strife
all because he didnt understand
the nature of his hairy wife....
and some are about love. like this short one
Little feather left and right
and she falls slowly in the night
coming from a nest above
a bed of twigs and a world of love.
Down she falls to the ground
a gust of wind to toss her around
the as the sun shone to dry her out
the lighter she was to get out and about
Then along came a magpie in his glee
to collect feather for his nest you see
to place it where his purpose best
to warm the heart where baby bird rests....
