Honestly what is with these wannabe poets who insist on bombarding the world with their crabby cribs? Am I interested in your shitty upbringing and Freudian complexes? I should hope not. I have problems of my own and these I write in a ridiculous outdated diary that will never be publicly unveiled let alone find its way into a blog.
Silly rhyme favourites: Shel Silverstein, Lewis Carroll, Ogden Nash and a whole lot more. And if we ever get to books : HH Munroe (SAKI) and Oscar Wilde any day of the year. And yes I do read Eliot and Shakespeare’s sonnets mostly because I have my second year MA to complete. Check my previous post. I never did find Wodehouse witty - silly yeah. Sue me.
I'll share your toast, I'll share your honey.
I'll share your milk, and your cookies too,
The hard part is sharing mine with you.

Develops the jaw,
But celery, stewed,
Is more quietly chewed.
