Na-Nu Na-Nu, tis Nanu driving the bus.

Mork calling Orson , come in Orson.
Mork calling Orson, come in Orson.
Shazbatt, this eircom internet phone is shite.

Anyways I is still wallowing adrift in the doldrums like a harpooned fat bloke but inspired by top scientist and French underwater yodelling champion NanU and her wonderful challenge to write a poem using some blogger word verifications, I have lifted the dark veil long enough to slip a couple of poems out underneath.
Both of them are based on awful songs.The first is for the bus challenge the second is for no reason other than the first one isn't very good and if I can't manage quality I'll have a bash at quantity.

My little opumpernickle.

Asnops and coadils,
cargsaflies and ghelees,
fiardots and fifgermin,
things smelling of poo,
dead fish and razor blades,
remind me of you.

Snagulls and fatxanes,
things of the skijtsarin,
winds that go diytarin,
botulism, bronchitus,
vomit on my shoe,
neon slyites,
graggle skies, or brelue,
all kinds of everything remind me of you

wincdebing, pissing
spring and autumn too,
bloody Sunday, feckin Monday,
black Tuesday, every day
I think of you.
Your fgances,
rporices, like foul
things of the night,
mildew and dersubs,
decidus to write.
Mingystne trees,
autumn leaves,
a spaglog or two,
all kinds of everything remind me of you.

May be the face i can't forget
no trace of pleasure just regret
no man could bear the price i have to pay
She may be the song that the Banshee sings
May be the chill that a plane crash brings
May be a hundred terrible things
Within the eternity of a day.

is no beauty more a beast
in a famine she’d be a feast
could turn each day from heaven to hell
She may be the ogre in my dreams
A smile that launched a thousand screams
slug like and rank is just how she seems
Inside her shell

You could never lose her in a crowd
her foghorn voice was far too loud
one scowl could make small children run and cry
I pray my life it will not last
that this hellish existence will be quickly past
I’m just praying for the day I die

May be the reason I survive
for every day disappointment that I’m alive
The one I'll love all through the rough and ready years
miles from happy laughter, now bathed in tears
pain and bitterness my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The ball and chain of my life is

She, she, she

I could barely stop laughing long enough to type! You are brilliant!

Jeanne Iris said...

Delightfully disturbing, TFE.

Heather said...

You could win the next Eurovision song contest with your first poem Peadar. Very relieved to hear that you were not inspired by Mrs. Eejit for the second.

Gerry Snape said...

Love it love it love it....keep writing them and we'll keep reading [ and possibly laughing].

Argent said...

I, too, laughed until milk came down my nose. We should have an alternative Yawn-o-vision with fine songs such as these!

the watercats said...

Marvellous! I loved this challenge.. Love the imagery that your first poem brought, even though half of it is purely figment.. excellent!
The second one is quite intense... very nice :-)

Gwei Mui said...

Yes deeply disturnbing but wonderful

Jessica Maybury said...

you hurt my brain! In a good way.

NanU said...

excellent job, yourEejitness!

The Weaver of Grass said...

Tried singing that first one but couldn't do it for laughing!

Would it by true to call Mrs Eej a saint???

Titus said...

Why did Argent have milk up her nose?

I sang these one after the other, and have to say they segue beautifully.

Stupendous work. And as for;

You could never lose her in a crowd
her foghorn voice was far too loud

if I had milk up my nose, it would have come out.

Love ya!

Dominic Rivron said...

The first one is delightfully revolting. It reminded me of Fungus the Bogeyman!

Just got "jipsigno". Now why didn't I see that when I needed it?

Rachel Fox said...

I'd quite like to hear these sung!

Dave King said...

Flatterer! More of it, please?

Ann said...

I would check that knife drawer again if I were you! LOL!

Martin H. said...

Dana exposed! Great stuff.

Niamh B said...

Oh my god, TFE, love the disclaimer, yes would love to hear she being sung proper, oh please oh please oh!


Lydia said...

I laughed so hard while reading this, and then harder reading your disclaimer. Made my day!

Enchanted Oak said...

T'was BRILLIG, Peadar!
Funnier than crap and ever so sad. Praising God for your disclaimer.
