Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


Brain and Cake.


I'm quite concerned about my weight,
It's been increasing some, of late.
I'm having trouble with my clothes,
The cakes don't help I do suppose.

I used to think I was quite fit,
But now I've got these flabby bits.
If I care to look around
My arse is dragging on the ground.

I think that it must be my age,
My tiny brain will not engage.
My fingers tremble over keys,
Accompanied by knocking knees.

I do not want to frighten you,
Just because I'm feeling blue.
It's just, I've had these thoughts before,
And, bugger me, I'm twenty four! !

    Hahaha I love it :) It's fabulous when a poem can make you smile. Really enjoyed.

    My knees crack when I bend
    Lately oreos have been a loyal friend
    I lose balance from standing up
    I no longer look cool saying 'zup? '
    I'm getting old and it's not funny
    What could be more over the hill than 20?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
