Rovers ahead - an entry in the silly poetry competition.


Percy, Sir Percy to some, has a poetry competition happening; a silly poetry competition.

See here.

In a cheese and onion sandwich induced delirium, I felt the need to enter.

Here is my my effort:

Beam, I've alley time.

Rovers ahead
Violins argue
Sioux garish wheat
Hand sowers renew


  1. Speak English that I can understand sir. LOL sorry..

  2. Lee dear that is a very abstract poem, so abstract that I cannot understand it...sorry...xoxo ♡

  3. Well, yes, it certainly qualifies as silly.

  4. Dianne! You shatter me! Read it with the sense of "Roses are red..."

  5. Thank you Cosmo, I knew I could rely on you!

  6. (Sigh)Too obscure and ahead of my time without doubt.

    Consider "Mary had a little lamb" with no original words:

    Marry hatter ladle limb
    Itch fleas worse widest snore.
    An ever-wear debt Marry win
    Door limb worse shorter gore.

    No, that wasn't mine. But you should get the idea. The Roses are red was, though.

    I wish I was dead.

  7. Why am I forced to explain my brilliance?

    Think I'll go and eat some worms.

  8. Are you finished now?

    Have you been hitting the cask wine again?

  9. I am thinking that this is being a poem that is being best left the the original Sanskrit. Am I thinking rightly so?

  10. Deeeep!

    I'll have a pint of whatever you're drinking and one of your fags too, please

  11. I think you've been taking lessons from Boneman. Well done!

  12. Sir, you are a gentleman and a scholar, yet I fear ever so much less the Poet. I say this with hesitancy and misgivings... but are ye quite certain this be meet matter for the Contest?

    I have no objections to presenting it a'fore the Board of Directors for posting, and yet I am concerned for, well, my Readers lol...

    Did I really say that? Of course I meant it not.



  13. I stink partially overseas
    apple, um, slow elasticity?

    (heck, I'll try anything once)
