COMPETITION TIME

For reasons that would take too long to explain, the TG and I ended up having a poetry competition. The subject was ‘chairs’.

These are the results.

CHAIRS

by Lo, she is a terrible Goddess

This is a poem all about chairs
It isn’t bout jam and it isn’t bout hairs

[or bears]

[there follows a short break whilst the TG has a snooze – well, either that or she’s lost interest completely]

…………. oh, apparently that’s THE END ………. possibly…….. oh, she’s dictating again – how unusual ……

Chairs to the left of me, chairs to the right
This chair is rocking – must hold on tight!
This chair is buttoned up, stiff as a poker
[short delay whilst the TG thinks of a rhyme]
This chair’s on rollers – it’s a bit of a joker.

THE END!!

…….. no it isn’t …..

This chair is mass produced – oh shame! – DFS
This chair’s got springs springing, crumbs, what a mess

THE END …….[waits with bated breath] ……. oh, she’s said THE END ……. again.

These chairs all seem disparate

But have something in common,

They’ve all been much sat upon by Peabrain’s big fat bottom.

THE END [certified Lo,TG Ed]

[Apparently she’s got to edit this now which is a tad strange as I’m very good at being dictated to ……..]

[OK, the last line didn’t exist the last time I looked and, once again apparently, I’m not allowed to change it]

*ahem*

CHAIRS by Daddy Papersurfer

The armchair, the wheel chair, the barstool, the throne
All should be sat upon – never used prone
The ottoman and chesterfield, the sofa and the couch
Are the ideal vehicles when you want to slouch.

THE END

These are the only two entries. Please vote now.

(I rather like Peabrain’s. Bother.  Lo,TG Ed)

Match of the Day

matchless

    “I’m thinking you need our top chair”
    said ‘Stannah’ girl
    as she flicked back her hair,
    and while DP was admiring her charms,
    Lo stepped in ‘fore his pocket was harmed,
    “Go tell your employer,
    we’re seeing our lawyer,
    second floors on the cliff-top are rare!”

    daddyp replied:

    I nominate yours as the winner ….. [I must say I thought it was just going to be a two horse race which would have given me a fighting chance ….. poo]

    gitwizard replied:

    I’ll let you keep the prize, I don’t think I could eat my weight in gingernuts…..

    daddyp replied:

    Is THAT the prize!!!!! ……. [starts to rig the poll]

    I have a new rule that I am only allowed to vote for entries in haiku contests, so I’ve decided to award the winner here based on beauty.

    A very slippery comment young Fraccy …… [I think that’s one more for me!!!!! ……. tee hee heeeee *ouch* – sorry darling]

    Slouching suits me. I prefer lying to sitting any day or night of the week

    daddyp replied:

    It’s the way forward ……. just imagine if everyone had a little lie down at the same time …… very relaxing ……

    syncopated eyeball replied:

    Me too, Nursey. But I like photographing chairs. DaddyP, I think it’s a tie with the poems.

    Yours was clever and involved slouching, but TG rhymed “common” and “bottom”. That wins for me….

    daddyp replied:

    That puts the TG in the lead …… why aren’t I surprised?

    I will always vote for any poem that involves bottoms, seeing as I am Butt Woman and all.

    daddyp replied:

    The TG is not going to win by a nose but by a ……. oh never mind ……..

    My vote unanimously goes to the awarder of the gingernuts.

    A chap who knows what side his gingernuts are buttered ……..
