                                            THE WIND BLOWS                                                 


The wind blows outside.

It rarely blows in our house.

We do not like it.

We do not often eat beans.

Beans prove wind can be broken.

  • FredPeyer

    Sorry Michael, love the drawing better than the poem, even though the poem is really good!

    • Michael Edwards

      Yes not one of my best but wanted to write in Tanka style which is a bit restrictive.

    • Louis Gibbs

      What a pleasant way to start a day, reading your clever little poem! Thank you for this one, Michael. And I love the cartoon as well!

    • Tony36

    • burning-embers

      'Gad sir, did u fart?'
      'Of course i did - you don't think i always smell like this do you?'

    • orchidee

      Toot? That's more to do with a car horn in the UK, I think! I shall have to swoon - bit windy! lol.

      • Michael Edwards

        Or trump - also an apt name for an obnoxious airbag.

      • Candlewitch

        I got a good chuckle out of this write 🙂 thanks so very much!

        *hugs, Cat

        DUMP TRUMP!!!

        • Michael Edwards

          I guess you realise that here in the UK to trump means to fart - thanks for your kind comment.

        • Erinna

          Great fun. It reminded me of 'Silly Verse for Kids' by Spike Milligan.

          • Michael Edwards

            Ah Spike - I guess you are a Brit - despite his acclaim I still feel he was underrated as a (silly) poet. I love his:

            The boy stood on the burning deck when all but he had fled

            • Erinna

              He had a very quirky sense of humour. On his gravestone is the inscription ' I told you I was ill' - he certainly had the last laugh, as we over the pond say!

            • Garry

              Very funny
