Turtles have shell and are green
They're always winning like Charlie Sheen
To fill this thread will be a test
I think Gaz and Paula will be the best
Maybe the odd one from Pete
With his funny rhymes that are neat

I know this is rubbish but i had a pop
You other writers best not stop

A hundred games

So I signed back on Funky a little while ago,
Wanting to post on this here thread.
But lost from my memory, I didn't know,
You had to put some pool games to bed.

A quick check at the rules, and oh! There it was,
To post you need a hundred games.
So I started the journey, only because,
It would keep Paula from going insane.

Two games at a time, five more late at night,
Not really caring if I lost or won.
Cutting in tight shots with all of my might,
To accumulate the far-distant tonne.

So here endeth the story, it was a long winded feat,
A hundred games I've had to go through.
I apologize to those that I just had to beat,
So I could post lots of poems to you.

Bored. Here's a poem.

One fine evening when the sun did shine,
Lonely little spaceman put his family in mind.
Strapped himself in and turned on the controls,
Thought about his kids and their innocent souls.
The countdown finished - the rocket took flight,
Through the earths atmosphere and into the night

He left Earth behind and relaxed in his chair
The turbulence before had given him a small scare
His mission was clear, to find the lost satellite
Retrieve some more data and begin his home flight
Some time went by, as he searched within his range
Before, in the distance, he saw something quite strange.

It was certainly a satellite, the one he meant to find
To reach this vessel he'd leave his spacecraft behind.
He took out the harness and collected up his tools
Went through the procedures taught at spaceman schools
Then he took the leap of faith, and out there he went
If danger occurred it would be hard to prevent....

After some wobbles he finally climbed on board
Looked into the darkness where the stars had soared
He opened the hatch and took out the hard drive
Never before had little spaceman felt so alive
Once he had finished he prepared to head back
He grabbed hold of the hoist and took hold of the slack

Pulling on the harness he couldn't wait to get home
Too much time here, he had spent on his own.
Suddenly a noise, and then a loud crack
Immediately the rope felt a lot more slack.
In less than a minute his craft was out of sight
And the lonely little spaceman drifted into the night.

Drip drip drip goes the rain outside,
The wind blows the leaves to the ground.
The little insects all scurry and hide,
As I sit in the house safe and sound.

The daylight fades and the sky turns dark,
As the moon begins to appear.
Outside, the noise of a solitary lark
Confirms that we're deep in the year.

Soon all the trees will be bare.
Soon all the plants will die down.
Soon all the kids will be dressed up to scare,
As Halloween rolls into town.

Then all the clocks will go back,
And the daylight hours become short.
Then Mr Chris Cringle returns with his sack,
With the presents the parents have bought.

Just some drivel...

When she finally takes time to listen
When she finally takes time to think.
When she finally gives him permission
He will tell her that he's on the brink.

As she finally realizes the meaning
As she finally understands why.
As she finally wakes up from dreaming
He will take out the fear from her eyes.

Though she always tries to be truthful,
Though she always works to the bone.
Though she always believes he is useful,
He cannot help feeling alone.

Before they met she was blissful
Before they met she was sure.
Before they met she was wishful
That she would find love that was pure.

Now they're apart she is lonely
Now they're apart she is blue.
Now they're apart she has noticed
That theirs was a love that was true.

Ten Minutes of Corrie.

Flicking through the channels, and what do I see?
It's been an age since I've watched Corrie on the TV.

So I leave it on a minute, and there is 'The Crops'
Always in his cafe with his out-of-date tops.

His wife's on the phone, I think she's on her way out,
Over in the Rovers Rita nurses her stout.

Dev still has a shop, although he looks a bit stressed,
There's David Platt's lass looking pretty under-dressed.

Jason the builder has a blonde on his arm,
Her low cut dress is surely cause for alarm.

I'm typing this poem as I watch it unfold,
Surely not the best of the stories I've told.

The Chippy

At the end of the day, driving on the way home,
I was fully aware that I'd be dining alone.
Without the missus to cook for, it was time for a treat,
I felt like spending cash on something tasty to eat.

The car window was open, and I caught a whiff,
My nostrils tensed up and I took a big sniff.
The chippy was open and my stomach did growl,
It was Fish Shop Thursday and I was on the prowl.

I entered the place and the heat took hold,
The fridge kept the dandelion and burdock cold.
'Fish n' chips please love, wi' scraps an' curry sauce,'
I handed over the money without a hint of remorse.

Five minutes later I was racing up the street,
Had to get home before the food lost heat.
I opened the door and I got out a plate,
It felt like an age since I'd sat down and ate!

With the food laid out and the sauce on top,
I put it on a tray and carried my pop.
Quickly into my slacks and turned on the TV
It was Thursday night and I loved my tea.

*Who doesn't love dandelion and burdock!!!!!

OOER! What happened Hippes!

Ste some great poems but i expected nothing less from you, its great to have you back and im sure the lovely ppl who have kept this thread going will agree that ur poems are so good.

Welcome Back

We met here on this pool site
Way back when online all nite

A gang of us would have some fun
Sharing lots of banter and pun

Although youve always messaged me
Its good to see your name here Ste

Back on form, where you belong
Posting your poems and browsing along

And even though weve stayed in touch
'Guevara' was really missed so much

But alas your back and i wont lie
When i see ur name i see that blue tie!!

Well, well, well just look who's here,
A friend that I've known all these years.

Sometimes I've come and then I've gone,
Not staying on the site too long.

But when I've returned all full of charm,
She's welcomed me back with open arms.

I abandoned the thread for months at a time,
But she 'kept her lit' this friend of mine.

Believe it or not, before you start to cry,
Be assured I still own that tie.

I never wear it, it's safe and sound,
It has some sentimental meaning now.

And now I'm back, I hope you come here too,
Cause I'll always love posting these to you!!

OH MY GOD dont dare lie
Have you still got that tie?

That tie caused lhavoc when in game
But now it'd put Mr Grey to shame!

Imagine a book was authored by you
50 shades of the colour Blue

The scene could be by Niagra falls
Surrounded by big cotton balls

Oh ha ha ha im laughing so hard
Im ending this now before i get barred!!

Oh my god, I have read some talent,
I thought it was plainly for a rant,
But I ask you all for forgiveness,
Because I was purely oblivious.
There are some natural writers on here,
Some of which I've laughed a tear,
Now I'll bring this short story to close,
I'll be seeing you all again, adios.

This Thread

Hello there Chapster, nice of you to post,
This thread is pretty well known to most.

But not for talent, that is but an aside,
People come here just to enjoy the ride.

Talent or not, it's but a delight,
To see another member come here an write.

Paula, 'tis true, the blue tie doth live,
To you it is a present I'll give.

Wrapped in cotton wool, and sent first class,
Through the mail this tie shall pass.

From the postman, and into your door,
Going through the letterbox and onto the floor.

Then you can smell my scent on there,
And wear it out, but only if you dare.

In your handbag, or when you run,
It should remind you of all the fun.

Take the tie as a gift from me,
Your loving pal, your old mate Ste.

- and other smiley faces.

Thank you for your kind words mate,
Even though I have entered into the fray late,
I will enjoy posting and reading all your thoughts,
I'll try to miss nobody's posts, they may get distraught.

These poetic threads, are great to read,
And reading these, make me want to proceed,
What do I type next, I shall let my thoughts flow,
Maybe writing some hobbies down below.

My passion is football, the English type,
I must admit, I'm caught in the hype,
To play and to watch, each to there own,
One day hoping, my team is on the thrown.

Also snooker, a few frames are a treat,
Enjoying new challenges with people I meet,
My highest break a mere thirty five,
A fifty plus is what I strive.

A sport some find dull, is next on the list,
Fraught with danger, it makes you know you exist,
In the middle of a bend, a race can be lost or won,
Of course, the sport I speak of, is Formula 1.

I look forward to all your replies
I can promise you now, I speak no lies,
As this site is for making many mates,
I like to feel, honesty is one of my better traits.

Thank you all for reading, my short story,
I tried to keep it from being too borey,
Let this be the start of my creative side,
And I hope to do this without a guide.

Ste thats great that poem but keep ur tie
I dont want you upset or asking why
Why you sent it to a scouse bird
Cos if she wore it she'd look absurd!!

It needs to stay where it belongs
But if you want ill send you some.....socks
You can keep them nice and neat
Knowing they been on my size 3 feet !!!

Chapster where have u been hiding????? Great stuff keep posting and welcome from me
