WARNING:  A bit norty – read at own risk!  (A SidevieW theme production – but don’t blame her.)

Happiness is getting cooler
When one feels too hot;
No-one likes in pool to fool a-
Round when they are not. 

Likewise, when the clime is chilly,
Happiness is heat;
And for dog with willing willy,
One on heat is neat. 

Happiness is urinating
When the need is great,
Or it can be procreating
At prodigious rate. 

I have said for bunny creatures
This is swell the case
For they gain their fun-ny features
In a way that’s base. 

When it comes to hares, you’ll find it’s
Hare penis they love;
Even if they get behind, it’s
Pleasure, with a shove. 

Or from music it arises;
Ecstasy can swell;
And that comes with no surprises –
Climax there, as well. 

Food is happiness for many,
‘Swell!’ they’ll say, and stuff,
Into every nook and crenny,
Much more than enough. 

But the greatest happy living –
Far the rest above –
Is the kind one gets by giving
Some, to kids you love.

J with pressie

    OK onto to the “norty step” Col, stay there for as long as it takes to come up with another rhyme that does not allude to procreating animals to pacify your more sensitive readers. For myself I quite enjoy a little innocent nortiness 🙂


  3. So this is what happens as one grows older. . .hmmm. . .you get even funnier! Thanks for ugh this a.m. – I needed them! Your little granddaughter is beautiful – she and Zoë would have a grand time!

    Let’s start back on our book – what do you think? It might be a better idea to point out not only our similarities, but our differences. I believe it would be a much better collection if we just put ourselves out there as we are, and included a section of poems where our thoughts and styles coincide. Just thinkin. . .

      Thanks for that kind remark.
      I do think it would be a joy to see them together.
      We do need to arrive at some directions on the book and go for them. First question is whether it seems feasible for any illustrations to come from your side – not my department at all! The cover is the main design to worry about, but it would be an advantage to throw others in. Some of the ones I have contrived from free internet sources might do as well.
      At this stage, I think we could fairly easily produce a book which has POD publisher in South Africa, and is available elsewhere on ebook and in POD print through Createspace.

    That little lady is going to say some ‘norty’ words when she first sees and understands, methinks 🙂 !


  8. susanben says:

  9. nrhatch says:

  10. adinparadise says:

    What a happy picture, Col. She has the sweetest smile. 🙂


  11. viv blake says:

    I do love a happy ending


  12. melouisef says:

    How are you going to keep all the fans away?


  13. SidevieW says:

    That little face would make anyone happy 😉

    Giving is the one way you can use money to make you happy


  14. Ends on the sweetest possible note after all the vulgarity 🙂
