831 - Of Cakes and Candles

Of Cakes and Candles.

You deserve a cake.
Make two and give one away.
A sweet thing to do.

Eskimos rebel.
From the President’s igloo:
“Let them row kayaks.”

When the cake is lit:
Close your eyes and keep blowing.
Make a nice a wish.

Wishes don’t come true.
Well, not this sort of sugary wish,
Unless for more cake.

And what type of cake?
Most women want chocolate,
Men are fine with cheese.

Candles reflect life:
Bright but ever so fragile.
Life, like candles, ends.

830 - Three Limericks

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: thoughtless, uptight, and woozy.

In Australia, Burger King is known as Hungry Jacks.

A playboy, from the very best stock,
Partied, paying no heed of the clock.
He awoke feeling woozy,
His headache was a doozy,
And the two sheep in his bed, a big shock.

A fellow who enjoyed a free lifestyle,
Was entrance by a girl with a sweet wife smile.
And a thoughtless oversight
Of a condom that night,
Lead to a trip down the church aisle.

A spinster, upright and most proper,
Was adamant no man would a’top her
But when she met Hungry Jack,
She leapt in the sack:
“I was entranced by the size of his Whopper.”
