WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A THISTLE AND A NETTLE

by

Thomas Fenton

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A THISTLE AND A NETTLE?
ONE HAS GOT ITS HAIR DYED, THE OTHER IS JUST GREEN.
THE NETTLE IS WEAK, AND THE THISTLE IS A GEEK.
THESE TWO PLANTS ARE HARD ON THE NERVE,
BUT IF YOUV'E BEEN NAUGHTY, THATS WHAT YOU DESERVE!


FLOOD

by

Thomas Fenton

DRENCHED BODIES,
CAPSIZED CARS,
CATTLE DROWNED
FENCE BROKEN,
CURTAINS OF WATER.
THEN ONE MORNING, WITHOUT WARNING,
THE SUN CAME OUT, SUNBEAMS SHONE DOWN.
NOW IT IS DRY, PEOPLE EATING PIE.

ROADS DRY,
NOTHINGS WET,
NOT ONE PET.
CHILDREN DART FROM THE HOUSES,
MEN WALK WITH SOGGY TROUSERS.

NOW IT IS DRY AS CAN BE,
THE SUN SHINES DOWN,
CHILDREN PLAY IN THE STREETS,
AND THEIR LAUGHTER FILLS THE AIR.

I AM A DRAGON

by

Thomas Fenton

I AM A DRAGON, SO FIERCE AND SO SCARY.
I HAVE ONE HUNDRED WHITE TEETH, TO SLASH THROUGH MENS MEAT.
I HAVE A BREATH OF DEEP FIRE, TO DEMOLISH ALL I DESIRE.
I HAVE SHARP, VERY SHARP CLAWS, TO FIGHT OFF MY FOES.
GREEN GLOWING EYES LIGHT UP AT NIGHT, AND SHARP SHINY SPIKES FIGHT AGAINST KNIVES.
A LONG WAVING TAIL, TO MAKE MY ENEMIES WAIL.
SO MEN BEWARE, I WILL GIVE YOU A SCARE!

THE DICK AND HARRY POEM

by

Thomas Fenton

WE ARE DICK AND HARRY, WE ARE ALWAYS ON THE MOVE,
IF WE SEE A PARTY, WE WILL DO THE KONGA GROOVE.
WE ARE DICK AND HARRY, PRANKING ALL THE GIRLS,
DRAWING ON THE SIDEWALK, AND EATING SUGAR SWIRLS.

DICK THINKS HES THE COOL ONE, HARRY, HES THE BRAIN,
BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY THINK THAT, THEYRE REALLY JUST THE SAME.
WE ARE DICK AND HARRY, WE ARE THE AMERICAN DREAM,
WE MAY LOOK KIND OF GEEKY, BUT ALL IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS.
