Eat Some Beef, Throw a Stone

~~ ~~ 1 ~~ ~~
Eat some beef, throw a stone,
Carry hay, gnaw a bone;
Something good will soon appear—
Isn’t everything quite clear?
~~ ~~ 2 ~~ ~~
Apricots are turning ripe,
Whiskey’s in the water pipe,
Running cold and fast and free—
Will you have a drink with me?
~~ ~~ 3 ~~ ~~
Pipers piped and dancers danced,
Horses horsed and prancers pranced;
Sensors sensed that all was clear—
It was just that time of year.
~~ ~~ 4 ~~ ~~
Archaic is the padlock,
Archaic is the key,
Archaic is the gate post,
Archaic just like me!
~~ ~~ 5 ~~ ~~
Shoulders, fingers, knees and toes—
What’s that tattoo on your nose?
Why’s it there, for pity’s sake?
It looks like a rattlesnake!

  1. whiskey in the water pipe… oh boy!!! Cheers!!

  2. I will have a drink with you! I love the fun in this

  3. A fun and witty set luv each one separate and read as a whole. Happy Sunday MMT

    much love…

  4. Whatever you do don’t tell the water company. Enjoy it while it lasts or better still bottle it!

  5. I like the “archaic’ one. I like to think there is beauty in the archaic! Smiles.

  6. I love the one with horses best. These were all great fun to read.

  7. I see some people taking pride, in having their nose tat. Myself, will never get body art done. I despise needles.

  8. Love these especially; “Archaic is the padlock, Archaic is the key.” 💖

  9. I love them all… what a fun way to put it all in rhyme… a nose tattoo sounds a bit strange to me.

  10. Reading these made me smile.. so clever!

  11. Neat! Such absurd clarity in rhyme made me smile.

  12. You’re the absolute master of small verse, in any mood.

    Love the lighthearted take, MMT. In fact lots of witty comments supported with good humor as always!


  14. This is such a fun trail of short verses – witty, frolicky and overall a delight. Whiskey running free would be perfect now; it makes me woozy thinking of it. Ha!

  15. hypercryptical

    I so love your delightful words of madness, they made me grin from ear to ear, made me even more happy.
    I wish I liked whisky, for if so, I would certainly join you for a drink!

      I’m not a drinker myself, but whiskey in a water pipe sounded so whimsical that I just had to use the image.
