AFCoory – Artwiculate Twittering [Series 2]

**************************************

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oh Zak my vespertine boy

you are to me a feline joy

in my house you do

reside

but as I chase sleep

you want to play and

hide

 ***************************************

rupert murdoch

I found my Utopia in Twitter,

where so much makes me titter

all good stuff can be

retweeted

and we’ll make sure

that Murdochracy is

defeated

************************************

melpomene

Sirens’ song is to amuse men

But beware tragedy’s caress

Behind the mask is a Melpomene

A daughter of Zeus no less

****************************************************

nunnery  Said Sister  Mary Gertrude:

‘Not enough

rectitude
far too much

attitude
wont do in a

nunnery!’

I said ‘I’d prefer to have

 funnery!’

If all global leaders were poets

Every one pithy, witty and wise

There’d be no need for war

Each life’s precious, they’d realise

****************************************

Britain Pope

Vatican likes to generate

saintly people to venerate.

But alas, it’s Holy Watergate

For harboured priests degenerate

*******************************************

… Hate is such an adaptable word It clings to any person, object or thing Free to roost anywhere like a bird Attaching itself to a whim or a prayer … No matter what race, gender, creed No matter that we all began in one place The slightest taunt can plant a seed To kill, maim, torture or subjugate … Wish that we were all colour-blind And a boy or a girl, who should care? Gods come from a collective mind Let us all save hate for hatred itself … Hatred almost a ploy for survival In those dark days of a primitive life Now surely it’s time for a revival Of tolerance, freedom here on Earth … The worst outcome you may contemplate All humanity going up in flames Who would request such an awful fate For future generations, a hopeless waste? … Myriad men, women, children, I declare Have already perished by barbarous deeds Time to take stock. Listen! Beware! War and suffering will spread unabated … All parents, teachers, leaders, please meditate Impressionable minds absorb like a sponge Anything you teach, preach  or legislate Don’t hesitate, it’s all in your hands! … ‘Save Hate For Hatred Itself’  © To Anne Frandi-Coory 10 October 2012 – All Rights Reserved ><

 Oh, if only it could be done

as gently as the sea no less.

Let’s pulverize rocks of hate

into sands of nothingness

********************************************

preacher

Priest preached upon the rostrum

that prayer was effective nostrum.

But then I found in his remedy

Nothing but divine comedy

***************************************

charles dickens

Alas did banal Pip discover

that to forge a life uncommon

and

 to have Great Expectations,

is the dickens hard to achieve!

*************************************************

devil

Warning!

Abbott of Oz Land.

Wont pay

to count

on Devil’s

forbearance

after selling

him your soul!
