Wonky Journeys

Just a quick note before I leave for Cornwall (not Devon at all) and the last stint of the current school visits - mind you, I'll also be looking up a couple of old friends.

Great reaction to Wonky Finger! You can read a fab review at
The Utility Fish Shed - thanks to CJ. And some equally fine comments from Liam at The End of the Pier Show

Meanwhile - had a very funny poem sent in to the
Poetry Zone by Asley Iam (aged 12)

Rose are red
Violets are blue
The zoo called
They're looking for you

Usually I don't post these Roses are red type verses because they're not very original - it must be the corniest little Valentine's verse ever. But here's the challenge. Can you come up with an original one? Something new?

Back next week when I hope to visit everyone's blogs and catch up with all the thrilling news here in Blogland.

I couldn't possibly try the red roses. Children at that age are amazing aren't they?

My two are ony 8 and 10 so I've a bit to go before they think they can own the world.

Glad to hear your having fun. And also I read the review...good one on you. Cheers!

What about your dog have you a good photo?

Roses are red
Rude things are blue
Cowards are yellow
What colour are you?

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Does the racehorse know,
He'll someday be glue?

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Don't use a hammer
To set in a screw

Jonathan said...

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Please put the seat down
When leaving the loo

(Gawd, you've got me started)

Jonathan said...

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm going to stop this
And that's good for you

michael said...

Roses are dead
Violets are too
They should have watered them
Before they went on holiday

Jonathan said...

You trumped me with that, Michael...

Mystique said...

Lol, that was hilarious, including the comments section.

Just trying my piece

These are my flowers
Dye them whatever

Please won’t you kiss me
‘Cause I have the blues

Coffee smells good
Taking a break

Couldn't resist the challenge...

Rose’s are red
Violet’s are blue
Edith’s are dry
And Lil’s are wet through.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Dali is fondling
A recent canoe.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Hi Ella!
Hi Ella Guru!

Your nose is red
Your lips are blue
Miles, you’re suffering
From a Kind of Flu.


A few musical ones. Loving everyone's posts! Brilliant.

Boomsa said...

Somebody stop me!

Roses are reds
Violets are blues
And they’re all being eaten
By the thing that moos

Roses are red
Wine is red
Lips are red
To bed to bed

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I’m pissed drunk
Are you? Are you?

Roses are red
And I’d sell toddy
If it only meant
I could hold your body

Roses are red
Violets are blue
It’s all the pink stuff
That I want to sue

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I can continue to rhyme
But I want to sleep with you
