Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

You’d expect a bloke called John Thelonius
To be quite frugal or parsimonious
He doesn’t belong to a political party
But he throws great gigs for the glitterati

I like John...
I take it he is an "in-de-pen-dent"
:)
(very cool!)

Thelonius said to Petronius,

I think you are full of balonius;

Then around a mouthful of Hungarian goulash,

He added, I fear this poem is quite foolash!

John said to Ringo I don't like Paul,
While Paul said to George that John's just a fool,
They all sat around just sharing a joint,
And then wrote "Hey Jude" so there was a point!

Just a note to point you to another Aussie's smiley face in the sky (with an eybrow and some strangely placed facial hair!)

I am laughing out loud to see that other bloggers have caught the PUN bug.Was trying to rhyme Thelonius Monk
Who was known to enjoy a portion of junk
Played a gig in La Paz
Of mind bending Jazz
With the help of a smidgen of Skunk

Oh, you have a lot to answer for.

HI David, Thanks for dropping by. I've been catching you on my reader, but not stopping often for comment. I'm trying to streamline my participation and save some time. Have a great weekend. Pappy

Thelonious
said "No!" to the Beatles,
and Columbia records
countered,
"For us, that is it!"
Never to be seen
seen together again.

Here's more verse which is really not worth the candle:

Thelonius, on the playground, is a very bad handle;

So he tried out "Lancelot", "Bruce" and "Jabberwocky",

Before telling the boys to just call him "Rocky."
