Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

I went to college with a bloke called Peter
Who drank cans of Coke by the megalitre
But now he works as a chemist in Haiti
And he says all he drinks is Earl Grey tea

because if coke can eat nails,
imagine what it does to entrails.

Suffer if I must-er
because you write with lust-er!

I could be fine
if you'd just not drop a line.

My rhyme is not finished
for I fear ears would blemish.

Ta ta for now
for I must eat some chow!

That Peter wised up and started drinking tea. Coke is so bad for him.

I really like this one.

My two favorite drinks? Diet Coke and tea. My favorite hot tea? Earl Grey.

No, my name is not Peter. :)

just finished my Green Earl Grey Tea with breakfast (eggs and bacon) but had to read your interview with the beautiful Kirti as the Sunday Roast.
Going deeper into her blog I nominate an old post by her as Post of my Day

Who would want to drink up coke?
This is bad for any bloke.
Peter's better off with tea.
Maybe he'd like to sup with me?

Tea is great but it won't clean brass.

Verification word is:disicali...descale, get it?

He gave up coke 'cause it made him burp
And he felt like a fool - a prize guy twerp
Each time he downed a can
and to catch a bus he ran
He felt the gases building
And discomfort soon began
He apologised profusely when he let off steam
Out of every orifice hot gass did stream
He said he'd try some Pepsie but had the same thing happen
And was very worried in case of a misphappen
So he decided on tea which was greatly safer
And chose Earl Grey with a nice ice cream wafer.

I went to college with a girl called Jennifer
Who drank alcohol by the canister
But now she works as a bartender
And says she has become a teatotaler..!

Have a laugh at my attempt. C'mon!

PS: Moannie, pls excuse my stupidity but I didn't get what the verification word signified. Pls tell me.

I once knew a bloke
Who drank tons of coke
He switched to beer
With glee and cheer, and
Slept through his Earl Grey tea.
