Sales executive meetings are very funny
when they're spouting out their sales pitch.
They always see their profit outlook to be sunny
and that there will be no hiccups in Greenwich.
They will be reciting the Ferengi rules of acquisitions
as their ears start to resemble the Ferengi.
This will help them form their profit at no cost missions
where they format their new company's decree.

I'm in a Ferengi-free zone.
They can't even call on the phone.
Cardasians too
Are simply taboo.
I hope someday they will be gone.

After all these years,
i just went to the shop to buy some milk
and ten years, later put the shopping bag on the table,
i have milk, tea and coffee, some fancy cookies and cream cakes,
i ask, how your day was,
and,
you say:
"shall i tell you of all the trifles past
the sunny days, i've had, without fancy cookie or cream cake?
or shall i tell you now, what's really on my mind?
when was the last time you got high: on online po-et-ry?"

You're the left to my right.
You're the dark to my light.
You're the cream to my coffee.
You're the apple to my toffee.
You're the rain to my sun.
You're the monk to my nun.

Sweet memories are made of this
apple pie and stew with steak fondue.
Memorable days that are filled with unending bliss
when drinking real ale along with special brew.
It will go on and on, until the break of a dawn.
It will go on forever and ever, no matter the weather,
as we watch the geese and the black swan,
who'll be attending Trevor's get together.

This heat wave has gone on forever.
The weather gods think they are clever!smiley - cross
A cold front is needed --
The clouds should be seeded.

Don't sit under the apple tree
not even to seek lee
an apple might fall on you
so very heavily

might hit your head with such a force
that suns and stars you'd see
and halley's comet too
is what i'm telling you

Should the apple be as heavy as me
you would be killed my gal
by fruit velocity
so very terminal

Do bats use umbrellas in storms?
Do unicorns like to file forms?
When zebras wear plaid,
Does it make them look staid?
Do foxes like digging for corms?

Why do you build me up
by giving me a loving cup?
I need you to take a pew
with members of the motley crew.
You'll all be going to Creetown
to buy me a 50's ball gown.
It will be for the summer ball
along with a satin and silk shawl.

In your Easter bonnet,
With poison ivy on it,
You'll be the strangest fellow
In the Christmas parade.

I kissed a girl who gave me a chocolate whirl
which was topped with a large diamond ring.
I was also given a necklace with a Tahitian pearl
as she sung me a love song sitting on a swing.
She proposed to me when giving me a painting of a Merle
between the garden rockery and the wellspring.

I'm glad 'tis a nonsense verse thread.
There's no sense at all in my head.
The world makes no sense.
This mess is immense.
I'm prob'ly alive, though, not dead.

There is nothing wrong with your television set nor your salad baguette.
Do not adjust the picture of the TV because the transmission is being controlled.
You will be presented with a duet of singers during a comedy vignette.
If want the volume changed go and shout out 'French fancy' marigold.
If want the volume to go down, say softer please and a slice of cheese.
We will control the horizontal during the intermission instrumental.
We will control the vertical while we try to be radical about new ways of being critical.

Ciabatta tastes just like baguettes.
I dream about turquoise Corvettes.
I watch "Outer limits."
The pool? Watch me swim it.
I'd like to sing to the Rockettes.

I have a rocket,
it's mine, i fly the sky
I land in some great places,
sometimes fall into the drink.

I have a rocket, it's my best friend,
it never tells me i am not worthy, it's never cruel.
Sometimes it gets angry,
i can not argue when it's in a mood -

My rocket is like my child!
My rocket is like my college professor,
it knows way more than me, but is humble,
unless i make an error in my ways -
then it goes into a logical rage -
it's not personal

My rocket has no feelings, for me,
even though i pay it's heavy maintainance fee,
i feed it all my data, and the best oil,

my rocket shines
it flys in skies
both local and alien

my rocket never cries,
when it's too hot,
it tell me the temperature.

My rocket has manners impecible,
I, the captain of my ship,
Am only human,
on long trips - it shows,
my spellings terrible

I am the pinnacle
of a million years
of human evolution

My rocket is one of thousands
and, my only real friend

Is this the human end?
Will the rockets just pretend?

Come out into space with me.
My ship has all the features
You could ask for -- coffee, tea,
A circus with exotic creatures,

A troop of Shakespearian portrayers,
Olympic-sized pools, gourmet dining,
A nondenominational place for prayers,
A garden with artificial sun shining.

I find more ways to enjoy my life
Each day, until I finally realize
I've forgotten why I'm on this trip.
Perhaps I'll remember by surprise?

The pilot said: "Abandon ship!"
and added in the airlock:
"That helmet makes you look so hip!"
- No faeces, my dear Sherlock!

I left the spaceship wearing naught
But slippers and pajamas.
'Twas then, aghast, I realized
That space was full of llamas.

Everyone is finding new ways of thinking
when they are pacing up and down.
New ideas of psychic linking
when partying in a cocktail gown.
They mind is being overfilled with new notions
of revolutionary methods of climate cooling.
Where there is cooling in the seas and the oceans
that came through using manpower that was quite gruelling.
The Arctic ice has refrozen from the Bering Straits
all through the Greenland sea and through the Svalbard.
This was great news to the climatologists and their mates
when the increase of ice cover was seen from the cruise ship, Canard.

The Ice Bergs are coming for dinner.
The heat has made Mrs. Berg thinner.
Their kids are now water,
Especially their daughter.
Big Eddy is now just a spinner.
