    Why one should not pop popcorn before knowing where the salt and butter are

    I much prefer the corn that pops
    When popping corn is on my mind.
    The kernels popped! I am so glad!
    My deep thoughts now are not so sad.
    But where’s the salt? I cannot find
    The salty salt. I need that, too!
    And butter? What’s become of you?
    And thus I sink into despair
    Abandoned by the world out there
    That doesn’t ever, ever care.
    Boohoo! Boohoo! I have to cry.
    My soul’s disgusted with me. Bye!

    I like the corn that's on my foot.
    It's bitter and quite sore
    when chafing 'gainst my shoe.
    It's much like you, my chafing dear,
    you chafe like walnuts and the scent of pears
    bathed in cerulean blue.
    You chafe my shoe.

    Additional advice that might as well be ignored just like the earlier advice

    A lot of stuff out there is free,
    Too much for you to take.
    Donít let it soak down deep and drain
    Your soul. Give it a break!
    Donít take it all! Just let it be!
    The now is all you need, you see?
    You donít? OK. Then let me say
    Outside your mindís a lovely day.

    Why I became an emoji imagist (since clearly I have nothing better to do)

    Now that Iím an imagist
    My poetry is cool.
    Emojis jump on every line.
    Thatís why I rule the school.

    The girls are all excited.
    Their boyfriends are so mad.
    I say they have to take their turns.
    Their boyfriends say Iím bad.

    Eventually theyíll kick my butt
    And I would kick mine, too,
    But now I write pure poetry.
    No other kind will do.

    No doubt you want me to go on
    But beauty calls tonight
    And when their boyfriends find me out
    Itís safer then for flight.

    This is how it is

    The little ant stood on the edge of
    the curb, to avoid being stepped on
    and looked down,
    as the city crowds shuffled by,
    faces clinched to another
    average day.

    And someone noticed the little ant,
    on the curb's edge - and shouted
    to the ant, "Jump! Jump you little fu cker!"

    It's tough out here.
    Another rough-boy Christmas.

    I can't sleep
    I can't dream
    How can I see you then?

    Ever occurred to you Why
    the Beggars will pray for you
    Regardless you give them
    Something or not?
    Simple ......
    They try to play with your sentiments
    Inorder to influence you
    To make you pity them
    and dole em out some dough
    Ha! These clever creatures !
    These habitual flunkies !
    Will pray so much for all
    That even God gets confused
    Indecisive
    whether to answer the prayers or not.
    If prayers are not answered
    It's because of plethora
    Of selfishness embedded in them.

    Please don't pray for me
    Neither you nor I know
    If our prayers would be answered
    Probabilty is they won't
    So leave the exercise alone
    I don't want the extra burden
    Which bleak prayers cannot
    free me off.

    It is pretty bad, but at least it rhymes. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Intelligence Test: The more you understand the lower your score

    I know the weeping willowís ashen form that
    under the red star beats out my name so I can
    see, yeah, I, the wonders that the drizzled
    monarch holds, awaits with pink thoughts dying,
    trying, having had no bloom into the wonders
    deep and sensuous that would love to say,
    with murder on their minds, theyíre mine.

    Alice reported that
    she understood
    “.every.single.word.”
    and so
    I gave her a score
    of “.zero.”.

    miss blp.

    Here's my bad poem:


    Shadows of the tongues of supercalifragilistic occupation
    Demand obsequious scatters of scat
    left on my doorstep, shining
    like desserted Hope, proud and perched in the
    dreams of a vanity mirror, becalmed.
    O seeker! bless the holy
    anaesthetist like you bless me after sneezes.
