Even Poets Can Be Funny

My brain has been crammed full of stuff this week and it has been difficult to get any thoughts on paper, so I thought we could lighten the mood on Thursday Thoughts and have a little bit of fun.

I captured the above photo whilst out on a walk last Summer and it is one of those photos begging for a caption.  It is over to you. Have you got any funny words or poetry inspired by the picture of the two cows? I am too Northern to include a prize but look forward to reading your responses.

Here’s mine to start the ball rolling.

“I hope he’s not going to start reciting one of his Hi-Cows.”

The Power of Prayer

We prayed for rain
And it rained
It rained.

We prayed for it to stop
And it stopped
It stopped.

Now we need rain

What can we do?

My knees can’t take any more.

Fake News

a Cockapoo
went missing yesterday,
snatched from the village street
in broad daylight.

caused a frenzy.
made it onto Facebook,
picture as well,

Parish Council,
County Council,
Local Police,

they all copped it.

it was down to
street lighting,
street parking,
council tax,
(£2000 to have your bins emptied?)

it went viral,
to neighbouring hamlets.
dogs everywhere placed
under lock and key.

turned out to be
a false alarm.

the dog walked back
into the house
8 hours later.

just fancied a wander.

came home because
it was hungry.
