I expect some of you remember me saying about the poems I’d written that Mum had framed and put on her wall. One was called The Search for Mum’s Brain, and the sequel
The Search Continues.
Whilst MOH is here, Pensitivity101 is likely to be quiet for a few days (stop cheering you lot!)
So I’ve scheduled a few things just in case, and the poems mentioned above are two of them. I hope you enjoy them as much as Mum did.
The Search for Mum’s Brain
First they did the left leg,
Then they did the right,
No sign of grey matter,
Not a brain in sight.
Although Mum’s feeling dopey,
She fights against the bile,
Not sure what they’re discussing,
She manages a smile……………
‘We’ll bend the knees alternately,
To exercise the toes,’
Drifting into consciousness
Hears ‘Let’s try up her nose…’
‘Not so bloody likely!’
She cries out in surprise,
‘I’m here for knee replacement,
Not a couple of black eyes!
‘Oh God we’ve got it wrong then,’
The Doc said with a frown,
‘No wonder we can’t find it,
Your chart is upside down!’
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Very clever and funny. Good one Di
Thanks Geoff. Mum read this one at her Ladies group and it seemed to go down well she said.
It’s grand. My dad whose poems I loved would have been delighted to have penned this. It’s very much the style he enjoyed
You’ve posted some of his stuff and it’s made me smile. Hopefully you’ll like the sequel.
I love it Di! So fun. Thank you for sharing the links!!! ❤️😊❤️
Thanks Kat. Mum read this one out at her Ladies Group for a show and tell, and it got a very good reception apparently.
I can understand why. They are both wonderful! 😊
This is so refreshingly funny when poems all over the place are getting so heavy and high falutin! (Occupational hazard of writers: They take themselves WAY too seriously 😉 Whatever happened to good old self-deprecating humour!)
I also loved your About pensitivity101 write-up. You are funny, I can tell you that. I love humour and horror, and not necessarily in that order :):)
Keep digging Rekha. There are some funny poems about dieting and chocolate too.
Reblogged this on pensitivity101 and commented:
A bit of humour from 2 years ago as part of the Flashback themes.
Mum read this one out at the ladies group she used to attend and it was very well received.
The other one I wrote ‘The Search Continues’ isn’t as good, but is amusing
Well worth repeating!
Mum had both poems framed and on her wall. They always made her smile.
Great one Di 💜💜
It made Mum laugh as did the sequel (which IMO isn’t as good)
This is so funny! 😂
My Mum loved it!
I bet she did! I loved it too!! 😀
Did you find the sequel ‘The Search Continues’
It’s not as good but
I love this one too!!
You’re a person I must say, way to go in life,
Finding humour in the toughest situations, instead of a dull fight! LOL
Thanks. My sense of humour has seen me through a lot. It doesn’t always come out in poetry (for instance, some of my cancer posts), though there are plenty here about diets, food and weight loss. Have fun digging around!
Sure, I will check it out.
The last time we discussed poetry, I told you I will try.
Well, I did! This isn’t super cool like yours. But check it out.
This is my daughter’s picture there.
