Ignoble warming

When it gets to -1
Go outside for icy fun
When it gets to -2
Ears and nose start turning blue
When it gets to -3
Snot freezes on my goatee
When it gets to -4
Milk and bread brawls at the store
When it gets to -5
That’s when snowmen come alive
When it gets to -6
Beat them back with burning sticks
-7, -8
Cold War isn’t going great
When it gets to -9
Frosty’s friends are looking fine
When it gets to -10
Build snow women for snowmen
Only way to win this war
Go inside and shut the door

Monday night sesh

Went in for a pint
Got music and history
At Hole in the Wall

Better than the alternative

Will I always feel this way?
Will it stop and go away?
Will the memories and tears
Stay with me for many years?

2+2=4

Deirdre and Kieran were two, family-wise
But last Saturday they doubled in size
Twins Cian Patrick and Cillian James
Two catchy, brilliant, and powerful names
We are excited for all the Gibbons
The four are now flush with first place ribbons

Comhghairdeas!

Polly and Ollie
Parents by golly
Their bundle of joy
A new baby boy

Katelyn Ohashi is perfect

A Bruin is good in gymnastics
Her flips suggest she’s made of plastics
Her work on the floor
Earned a perfect score
The Twitterverse tweeted – “fantastics!”

From haiku to haikold

Yesterday was mild
Today is fucking freezing
Typically Irish

They don’t like Mondays

Linc is yelling and screaming and shouting
Brownie Bear wants a walk and is pouting
It’s my first day off in so many weeks
But my night is shot because of these freaks

Dog and catnap

I found some time to take a nap
Dog on my left, cat in my lap
I have been on a busy streak
Fastest five minutes of the week

Stick Person Poetry: Bandersnatch

Limerick……….Haiku

……….The toves were slithy
……….The borogoves were mimsy
……….And mome raths outgrabe

Both Dee and Dum Tweedle were rotund
The frumious Bandersnatch was shunned
With a swift attack
A snicker and snack
The slain Jabberwock left them quite stunned

Goin’ to Mayo

I’m on my way to wild Mayo
Where only silly people go
You cannot get there on a train
So getting there can be a pain
You cannot drive there in a car
I tried it once, but it’s too far
You cannot get there on a bike
That isn’t true, but it’s a hike
You cannot get there in a boat
Such choppy waves, it’s hard to float
The only place on this great sphere
You cannot go to there from here

Unhealthy haiku

Cough sneeze hack wheeze sniff
Nobody likes being sick
Unless you’re a freak

Crappy New Year

Some years start off with a bang
Drinking champagne with the gang
Others start off kind of slow
Clean forgot by all you know
Being sick removes all cheer
When you have been sick all year
