The singing frog

The man walked into the pub and then
Stands at the bar and says “Something special to show you gentlemen”
He opened a suitcase and pulled out a mouse
“Would you like him to play the piano and entertain this house?”

The bar visitors said “Yes” and gave a cheer
They all liked cheerful music with their beer
The mouse played the piano for half an hour
The man said “Would you like to hear a frog who can sing with gusto and power”

The audience cheered and said they were game for anything
The frog sang magnificently, a joy to hear him sing
The mouse playing, the frog singing, everyone was enjoying a great beer
All having a great time that was clear.

Suddenly up jumped a customer who offered to buy the frog
For five thousand pounds, which made the on-lookers agog?
The frog’s owner said O.K. and took the cash
The buyer put the frog in his bag and then away did dash.

The publican said “Five thousand pounds for a singing frog worth millions. Wasn’t your price rather modest?”
The man smiled and slowly said “Not really, you see the mouse is a ventriloquist”

I had a dream…

I dreamt I had a lover, who was rapturous over me,
That she was as passionate as a woman can be.
She was my woman, I was her man,
We would make love as often as we can.
After the fires of passion have cooled down,
We would embrace and sleep in the night’s gentle gown.
In the morning when we are awake,
Our passions we would again slake.
In the day, hand in hand, we will stroll through our beautiful countryside,
Take a rest, relax and sit by an enchanting river side.
We would plan to be always together,
Our love would bond us for ever and ever.
I had a dream, is this how love and the world should be,
If so dear lord, please let it happen quickly to me.

The storm king.

The storm king rises from hell again,
He rides our earth in thunderous cloud,
Lightnings flash, you know his presence is here,
To minister death and destruction he is avowed.

His torrential rain he deluges on to our mountain tops,
For hours and hours, it never stops.
He roars with laughter as it cascades on to the plains below,
The rain floods the rivers which wash away our precious crops.

His tempests in the sky are a fiery red,
His lightning forks destroy many a homestead.
The winds roar in at his command,
Lash this earth till all feelings are fled.

The night is long and dark as this king savages earth,
From his chariot he devastates all, fuelling his mirth.
Why O’Lord do you allow this monster to rise and rule,
You are our king, your servants appear of little worth.
