behold no evil

No Evil by Maude McDonald ©

behold no evil

strictly prohibited acts
revolting habits
contumeliious rudeness
count each monkey eye:
regard no abominations
behold no evil
emmunciate no offense
better commandments

Bill Limerick

Fake Money

Bill Limerick

A “lady” was upset by a bill
some John gave to pay for a thrill.
He had forced her to take
what was clearly a fake
now he speaks with a high girly shrill.

Fake Money Part Two

Executive Take Over Limerick

Innovative Approach

Executive Take Over Limerick

A young bureaucrat stepped on some toes
when some changes he did dare to propose.
He reorganized his wing
then revised every thing
now he sits where had past CEOs.

Four Spirit Senryu

Angle Sky

Four Spirit Senryu

it’s not how you dress
recognize your inner self
push the envelope

souls that met by chance
kindred spirits tied by night
random encounters

body in stillness
hovering spirit above
constant loneliness

only knowing love
fasinating spirit guides
lead us through life

Planning To Back Limerick

Cracked Broken Hard Drive

Planning To Back Limerick

A programmer was planning to back,
His data up in an old school style rack.
The CPU broke.
Then it let out some smoke.
Now the hard drive’s got some nasty big crack.

Astronaut Up High Limerick

Space Picture by Ilya Benkin

Astronaut Up High Limerick

An astronaut was terribly high
She was floating around in the sky
She saw a light appear
In the shape of a spear
It’s an object they can’t identify!

Reclining Monarch Limerick

Midas Reclining on Throne

Reclining Monarch Limerick

A king who was frequently prone
Had a very uncomfortable throne
He was caught lying down
Then he lost his gold crown
Now his short rein is quite unknown.

Messy Baby In Car Seat

Messy Baby In Car Seat Limerick

A large baby attempting to eat
While strapped into a restraining seat
Got into a mood
And threw all her food
Now the van’s rear is topped with a sheet.

Orion’s Armament

bistoury hidden in
baldric of tanned cow leather.
malchus sharpend deftly by
acutiator. always
armisonant; on his heels.
roundhead most efficacious.

 Mini-Challenge for Sunday – It’s written in the stars…

Also Posted on: PurpleTreehouse Poetic Forms Week 6: Back to Basics

Where we were asked to write “Stellar Verse” specifically about the constellation ORION. The simplest for of Orion consists of seven stars (without the Hunter’s shield and club.) The poem had to be 7 lines which had to begin with the initial letter of the names of the 7 stars working in sequence from the celestial zenith, ie, B, B, M, A, A, R, S and each line in the “pure” form of the Orion, must have seven syllables, but flexibility is allowed. There is no set rhyme scheme.

The actual names of the stars from which the letter sequence above has been generated are: Betelgeuse, Bellatrix, Mintaka, Alnilam, Alnitak, Rigel, Saiph.

Since Orion is a hunter/warrior, I chose weapon words, some of which you might not understand (I didn’t know over half of these) so I am giving you the definitions:
acutiator – person in the Middle Ages who attended armies and knights to sharpen their instruments of war

armisonant – rustling in arms; resounding with arms

baldric – belt worn over one shoulder that is typically used to carry a sword

bistoury – surgical instrument for making incisions

malchus – short sword with a broad tapering blade

roundhead – weapon used as a club
