  1. 21. A Boy Named Sue

    "A Boy Named Sue" is a poem by Shel Silverstein that has been made popular by Johnny Cash. Cash was at the height of his popularity when he recorded the song live at California's San Quentin State Prison at a concert on February 24, 1969. The concert was filmed by Granada Television for later television broadcast. The audio of the concert was later released on Cash's At San Quentin album. Cash also performed the song (with comical variations on the original performance) in December 1969 at Madison Square Garden.

    Well, my daddy left home when I was three,
    and he didn't leave much to Ma and me,
    just this old guitar and a bottle of booze.
    Now I don't blame him because he run and hid,

    Johnny Cash was the right person to sing these lyrics. He made an interesting song from an awesome poem. Very entertaining. Love it! Jac. Judy A. Campbell

  2. 22. The Ballad Of Daylight Savings Time

    Every year, it rolls around, to be greeted with groans, eye-rolling, and an intense desire to sleep in late. Yet we dutifully do it. Is there a bonus to Daylight savings Time? Hmmmmm.

    What's with this Daylight Savings Time?
    It steals our sleeping, snoozing time
    Roll out of bed and take a breath
    And feel like microwaved-reheated death

    Daylight saving can either be a blessing or a curse. Thanks for the laugh. Australia is currently enjoying summer daylight saving time. Loved the verse.

  3. 23. A 21st Century Visit From Santa

    • By Brooke Jones
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010

    The classic "A Visit From Santa" MEETS Thomas Friedman's "The World Is Flat" in what could well become a new holiday classic. The birth of the world wide web has changed everything, forever, and for those not prepared, earning a living could be a challenge.

    T'was the night before Christmas, and all through the house
    Not a creature was sleeping -- not pet, child or spouse.
    The people were tossing and turning in beds
    With visions of bills dancing 'round in their heads.

  4. 24. The Neighbour's Dog

    Based on a true event. A neighbours barking dog led Bazza to howl and bark in the middle of the road with unexpected consequences.

    Our street was once a peaceful place
    Kids played and you could jog
    But our tranquil life was shattered
    When the neighbour got a dog.

    • By Christina

    A smoker battling with the weed.

    You're the love of my life and the cause of my strife
    You dirty cigarette
    I've made many mistakes in my many days
    But you are my one regret

    Hi everyone! I'm just your average teen who enjoys listening to music, friends, and TV, but I also love writing! I wrote this poem for a writing club I'm in and it turned out to be pretty neat! I hope you enjoy!

    I can not write a poem; my brain feels fried.
    It can do no more.
    It is as though all my creativity has been trapped, isolated in a room without a door.

    I feel chimps deserve more recognition for being awesome. Please enjoy this poem, a tribute to their awesomeness (also their occasional stupidity...).

    A chimp named Bob had a fancy
    For a banana tree
    That lived in the jungle nearby
    His love was plain to see....

  11. 31. The Bulls Of Bickerton Lane

    My home sits on a three acre property that abuts a cattle farm. The driveway/lane that leads to my neighbor's house bears the name Bickerton Lane. It seems that the fence surrounding the grazing field is sorely in need of repair. The cattle wander at will through this broken down fence and onto my property. I hear them in the morning mooing and grazing through my yard and, annoyingly, leaving their fertile deposits behind them. So, I wrote this rhyme to calm myself down.

    The bulls of Bickerton Lane do graze
    Upon my verdant lawn.
    I hear them in the morning haze
    Mooing to the dawn.

  12. 32. Pretty Little High Heels

    I wrote this poem because my whole life I loved my high heels. Getting older, they are now a thing of the past. Just putting some humor in something that as a young woman had such great importance to me.

    Pretty little high heels,
    How you look so grand.
    I can remember when I wore you
    And I could proudly stand.

    Of that seagull just above her,
    She was totally unaware.

  14. 34. I've Fallen In Love With Mr. Muscle

    • By Jamie H Scrutton
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2014

    This is a comedic poem about a woman who has grown a passionate attraction to Mr. Muscle after his dedicated hygienic work around her house.

    The typical skittish behaviour when my body begins t' bustle,
    All in the fact that I've fallen in love with the one and only Mr. Muscle:
    How his passionate vibe shines when cleaning down my decks,
    As his toned, articulate body moves, rhythmical with his pecs!

  16. 36. A Naughty Little Comet

    This classic, fun, and rhythmic poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919) is a cautionary tale about a mother-daughter struggle that will be familiar to many parents of teenagers. The lesson taught is the virtues of a cautious and modest approach to life. The bold and fun loving daughter doesn't listen to the scolding of her wise mother and instead runs wild, reveling in her youth and beauty. In the end the mother's fears come true.

    There was a little comet who lived near the Milky Way!
    She loved to wander out at night and jump about and play.

    The mother of the comet was a very good old star;

    Wouldn't the work environment be wonderful if office policy including time to laugh every day?

    Stepping into the boardroom meeting,
    Stepped out of character too.
    Put a red slipper on one foot,
    On the other, a bright blue shoe.

  18. 38. It's The Most Fattening Time Of The Year

    My mom loved the song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." She played it every Christmas, without fail - until we all got sick of it. But here's a fun version of it to sing - and if you get a karaoke track for it, perform it with props, friends, and fun, and post it online...well, I think everyone could get a good laugh out of it. Enjoy! Merry Christmas!

    (sung to the tune of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year") - with apologies to Andy Williams

    Based on a true story. A typically Australian story. The snakes were all recovered and returned to their creek, but important lessons had been learned.

    It wasn't that we hated school.
    The creek enticed us more.
    My mate and I hung out there
    To chase frogs, catch fish, explore.
