Bang! Ouch! ....... [uses of 'bang', the word; funny/not funny; Short]


Bang! was what I heard when the chair leg hit my toe.
ouch! ! was what I said....as toe-swelling began to show.

Bang! -up-time was what I had at X-mas party for my job.
Ouch! ! was what I said next morning....as my brain did throb.

BANG! is a Theory of how our Universe came about.
OUCH! ! is Religion’s response....when its beliefs are placed in doubt.

It’s likely none of THOSE bangs will cause you to drop dead,
but dead you might soon be....if a gun goes BANG! beside your head.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
