Michael Edwards






If sheep count sheep to go to sleep

do hake eat steak to stay awake?


Have you ever wondered how you’d alight

if you ever flew on a non-stop flight?


Attendance is thin on the ground today,

It seems like the fat ones have stayed away.


You’re an artist so tell me and be quite frank:

How can anyone ‘draw a blank’ ?


Last autumn I went out with my daughter

to look for a source of spring water

    "Knock, knock"
    "Who's there?"
    "Knock who?"

      Says I quite modestly:
      'It's me,
      it's me, it's me,
      its me, its me,'
      Honestly !

      Heehee. Good write and pic. My very old joke is 'Why is abbreviation such a long word?' People have given up laughing at it. Well, I might only know about 3 jokes, and they've heard it 100 times! lol.

      • Michael Edwards

        Why has lisp got an 's' in it?

        Why can't you make another word using all the letters in 'anagram'.

        If a word is misspelt in the dictionary how do you know?

        • orchidee

          Aww, that's the 3 jokes I know. Now I don't know any, to tell anyone else! heehee.

        • orchidee

          Dunno who's there - can't hear the door knocker. Try ringing the bell!

            Do I recycle them?
            Do pilots take crash courses?

                Are bears bare? Great job Michael! A very right write!

                • Michael Edwards

                  I do declare
                  if ever you dare
                  to scare a bear
                  it wouldn’t be fair
                  cos it might lose its hair
                  and a bear that is bare
                  would get goose pimples.

                    Humor and sculpting, Wow! Funny stuff that, the jokes not the sculptures. And you made it into a poem as well. Well, I enjoyed a laugh and for that I am grateful. Nice work. - Phil A.
