Verse and worse

Marty McFly
Was ever so spry
He went back to the future
Wearing slate-grey and fuchsia

Granny Mac May
Wears those colours each day
But lives in the present
Now isn't that pleasant?

Three cheers for the return of Verse & Worse!

Nuts in May

He must be related to "Kite"
Who travelled mush faster than light.
She proceeded one day
In a relative way
And returned on the previous night.

Motion by Maggie seconded . . . horray!

Eddie
PS the word verification was 'ourfe'. Perhaps blogger thinks my poem is "awful" LOL.
SAo awful that it would not accept it first time LOL

Bernie said...

Bernie really didn't know
when she stopped by to say hello
that everyone would have a verse
yeah, I know I am the worse..

......big hugs from Canada

Very classy work, Maggie - but that's what we expect of a classy lady like you.

Hi Eddie,

It's terrific when people respond in verse.

Thanks for dropping in again!

david mcmahon said...

Thanks, Bernie

Delighted that you left a comment in rhyme.

So glad that you were able to find the time!

Mimi said...

To rhyme with future
I can choose suture
But to suture a fly?
oh my, oh my!

Saz said...

Quite a current verse actually, MJ Fox has recently filmed a new trailer for the films anniversary edition...bless him...

Such a joy to see you at the top of my sidebar rather than at the bottom!!

Hi Mimi,

That is a hilarious rejoinder. Great work with the word "suture" and your last line is a piece of art!

david mcmahon said...

Hi Sara,

Yes, that is precisely what triggered the thought. We're on the same wavelength.

So glad my blog is showing up on your sidebar, after more than a year away!

Marty McFly

The time travelin' man
visits David McMahon.

You really are back, David! Yay.

Oh how I've missed these witty poems and puns of yours, David! So glad you've returned to the blogosphere now and please, don't leave us again!

Merisi said...

And down by the gate,
Merisi, frozen in time,
still trying to find
the shutter release
what a tease!

Betsy said...

haha...well, tell old Marty to just hang on...those colors are bound to come back in style very soon! :)

Jo said...

You seem to be a bit of a time traveller yourself. Welcome back. :-)

Leslie: said...

You always give me a chuckle with your verses...great to have you back. :D

Lee said...

What fun, David! These clever poems of yours are one of my favorite features of your blog. Thank goodness someone clued me in on the Back to the Future thing, I loved that movie.

Cheers,
Lee

Hi Brian,

Delighted to see my old friends commenting here again. Thanks for being here since my "comeback" post!

david mcmahon said...

Nifty rhyme, TechnoBabe - real literary dexterity!

david mcmahon said...

Glad you liked the colour combination, Akelamalu. I chose it more for word balance than for sartorial elegance!

david mcmahon said...

Delighted to be at the top of your sidebar, Thumbelina!

david mcmahon said...

Hi Ibeati,

How lovely to see you here again. My first steps back into blogging have brought me back in touch with a community whose embrace I missed greatly.

david mcmahon said...

Very kind words indeed, Jeni. You can guess what a huge decision it was for me to walk away from blogging last year!

david mcmahon said...

Why, thank you, Charles, kind sir.

david mcmahon said...

Hi Merisi - always good to know that your camera equipment is foremost!

david mcmahon said...

You're right, Betsy - fashions does follow a certain cycle, even when it goes back to the future!

david mcmahon said...

Great to "meet" you again, Jo - it's like being back in the family all over again.

david mcmahon said...

Thank you, Leslie - I wasn't sure whether to resurrect these verses or not - and then this one just composed itself!

david mcmahon said...

I thought you might have been a fan of the film, Lee. Don't forget to say hello to your Dad for me.

Sniffles and Smiles said...
