I really do not have a clue
What is hiding here in my shoe,
It isn't my toes
they don't hiss, as far as I knows
not quite sure just what to do


A jackal, a giraffe, a monkey and me

A jackal, a giraffe, a monkey, and me
Decided to race to the top of a tree.
As we climbed to the top,
Our hearts raced and wouldn't stop
The giraffe won by a neck, hehehe.

We had brekkies at Tshokwane

We had brekkies at Tshokwane
A much better place than in a Barn
have I been pronouncing it wrong? :redface:
me too! :redface: with others all along
And does it rhyme with Malelane? :?

Inspiration is like lightning, it comes when you get it and if you blink you miss it, so I hereby interrupt the flow for my own one.

A chick living in Tsitsikama,
Went to Keimoes to marry a farmer
They had sixteen kids
Then their marriage hit the skids,
And now she's a breeder of llama

The stars shine brighter in the Great Karoo
Two of our forumites had a magnificent view
Of the beautiful Milky Way
I know they did enjoy their stay
In the beatiful national park in Karoo

BB and Hawk, You are great poets :D 8)

A beautiful young ranger from Letaba
Got together with the lions for an Indaba
Sadly the lions were hungry,
and then they got angry
now there's a lioness with a ranger inside her

A beautiful young ranger from Letaba
had his hair cut by a one armed, blind barber
Who made a terrible mistake and cut off his ear
he said thats the third one I've done this year
Pickled ears keep well in my larder

Hawk!!! :lol: :lol:
I think you've found y'r niche!! :lol: ....You've just made my day too....!!

Who needs a webcam if you have a Hawk,
he is one guy who can walk the talk,
We love to have him on this thread
lots of laughter he can spread,
you don't have to work today....now do you Hawk?

n the grass a leopard lay dreaming
his mind was busy scheming
If I climb up that tree
hopefully I'll be free
Of lion with plans for kill stealing

I was walking down the Lower Sabie road
When I suddenly heard a sound which fear forebode
twas scarely like a grating saw,
which sent shivers through my clinching jaw
As a leopard through the bush softly strode

slithering quietly through the grass

Oh my word. It was an enormous toad

And Im sure it wasn't a peck!


Sorry to usurp this one!

One dark night in the hide at Nossob
Two little mice, one named Bob



And this for Jenb:

I know a young lady from Tzendse
if you need a good poet she'd then be
The person you'd need
to write poems with speed
That creative young lady called Jenb
