To share some news
Or air your views
Just talk to me
And you will see
The master of bad poetry
Who goes by name of Dastardly
In answer to your tricky tease
Total guesswork is my key.

I think
You'd sink.

OK, I know Dastardly doesn't rhyme with poetry. But I've had a long day.

I went to the pub with a space invader,
He met this girl, and then he made her
buy him things with thought control.
Ten pints of beer and a bacon roll,
four hundred bags of scampi fries.
But then he found, to his suprise
he was too fat to leave the place.
He never got back into space.

I appreciate your woeful tale
And here is one that never fails
To bring a tear to my poor red eyes
Aliens would heed it, if they were wise

*ahem*

An alien, whos' name was Z
Came to earth;it wanted to be fed
It came bounding from its' ship
And stole a single, solitary chip
Alas the salt did prove too much
All it took was a single touch
Of that single, deadly meal
And then the poor old alien keeled
Over, and then shrivelled up
Which wasn't terribly brilliant luck:
The cleaners rubbed and scrubbed and sluiced
But couldn't get rid of the alien juice.

This only works if you pronounce Z the British way. But I think It's pretty impressive for a spur of the moment effort.

I pronounce "Z" the British way,
I just don't think that "Zed"
quite cuts the mustard as a letter
when you hear it said.

Last night I walked incredibly far
And stumbled on a mysterious bar
In side the door was a frog being fed
Instead of chairs there were boxes instead
The tables were blue and made of glass
The floor had no carpet:it was covered in grass
They served beer by the litre and wine by the quart
Which jumbled my previousely crystal clear thoughts
I passed out in an hour
The evening turned sour
It ended with me in a pile of sick
I'm going back there at the end of next week.

I got that poem the wrong way 'round.
I just re-read it, and I found
That we in Britain pronunce "Zee" "Zed"
It gives our alphabet more cred.

Although your previous poem confused me
Your most recent one amused me
A good poem that accepts some blame
Puts my best attempts to shame

However I will persevere
Until all at once I fear
You'll see I'm just an empty head
And talk to someone else instead
