Inspiration strikes and likes to tease!
It's a puzzle to me what will please
In terms of topic, news or place
Will it bring a smile to someone's face?
I can't be funny all the time
Things happen – accidents and crime
Some date in history seen anew
Or the quirky things that people do.
Politics is such fair game
But let's not mention any name!
Weird trends we've never seen before
Science theories to explore.
Celeb lifestyles, apt quotations
Horrors - causing palpitations
I shuck each oyster for a pearl
And give my daily thoughts a whirl.
Like ripples on a deep blue pond
Some poems reach out far beyond
My wildest dreams – I'm deeply blessed
You, my Readers, are THE BEST!
