Michael Edwards






Bert the Hairy quite contrary

Why does your red nose glow

With silvery drips that run to your lips

At the sight of wee maids in a row?


Round and round the bedroom

Catch me if you dare

One step

Two steps

The bed is over there



A sailor went to sea, sea, sea

To see how far he could pee, pee, pee

But he totally failed to forsee, see, see

The winds that blow across the sea sea sea.

    Good fun writes Michael.

  • orchidee

    Oh lol, fine writes Michael. Stand clear of that sailor!

    • Michael Edwards

      It would bring tears to your eyes.

    • Accidental Poet

      Now that sailor needs a shower. Nice Michael.

      • Michael Edwards

        I think he may have already had one AP

      • Fay Slimm

        That middle rhyme had me in stitches Michael - another clever slant on the original nursery rhymes - I love your sense of humour - - and another adorable picture to add to the pleasure of visiting your page.

        • Michael Edwards

          Puts me in mind of a comedian way back whose catch phrase was ' Ooh chase me' - now who was that?

        • Mottakeenur Rehman

          Super super. ...superb!!

        • Louis Gibbs

          Number two, hands down! An adult nursery rhyme ... love it, Michael!

          • Michael Edwards

            Don't you wish you were there = Thanks Louis.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks MICHAEL ~ I'm back from GERMANY after 4 years in STALAG LUFT 3 ~ We built a plane to escape but with 54 passengers we didn't get lift off ! The Komandant gave us all Gluwein und Bratwurst for trying ! Love you odes ~ Nursery Rhymes are always good fodder for a parody ! Love your painting ~ My poem is about 'OUSES today ~ please check ~ Thanks BRIAN

            • Michael Edwards

              Welcome back Brian - yes I love nursery rhymes for that reason

            • FredPeyer

              Well done (again) Michael! If I had to choose one of the three, it would probably be number two!

              • Michael Edwards

                Was it ever like this? Thanks Fred

                • FredPeyer

                  Sure, in the good old days. Now I can do it for about 30 seconds, then I am out of breath!

                • myself and me

                  See the couple in this paint again.
                  Ha, Ha, Ha, I love the poem, so funny.

                  • Michael Edwards

                    They get everywhere - they're looking for the bed.
