Sent messages

Sometimes I read through
my sent messages.
The subjects are random,
These are a few that I like.

A person I know phoned a friend,
Asking her for her telephone number;
As she couldn't remember it.

To the editor
As for my scribbles,
I wondered what you would think.
Should I carry on writing?
Or stop wasting the ink.

So far in writing, I've been compared to;
Lewis Carroll, Mary Poppins and Dr Seuss.
Only I don't think I have the legs for Mary Poppins.

Is he real?
I always ponder on things,
Like if they found the last page
of the bible, And it read....
This work of fiction was written by god.

Went into KFC,
Saw this buxom lass cleaning table's.
On her t-shirt were the words,
Finger licking good. Asked wife.
"Can I ask her if it's the whole breast?".
Apparently the wife doesn't have a sense of humour.

As sameen wrote, I would appreciate comments
Wether negative or not. Should I publish more?

The main problem with modern poetry is that everyone writes but nobody reads. That's why I make it a point to read and comment on everyone's poems here at Poetbay.

For the people who don't do the same: Shame on you.
