Game For A Laugh!


Recommended Posts

Let the Game Begin!

Hi Forum

When I was a no bigger than knee high to a grasshopper, I had this strange ability to write rhyming poems about anything and everything in the matter of minutes. I was so bloody good at it that friends and family used to throw words at me and the race against the clock would commence. I could literally knock up a 4 or 5 verse poem about any person, place or object that was I challenged with.

For some reason, I got to thinking about this last night (like you do :o), and gave myself a test for the first time in probably 35 years. Alas, I couldn't get past the first line :D

So do we lose natural abilities over time, or do they just sit latent in the mind waiting to be released? Who knows! So just for a laugh, why not give me a word here, and I'll see if the pressure can release the old poetic aptitude from within. Obviously, I'll cherry pick the word I think will be the easiest to get started with.

If I choose 'your' word to write about, you can of course get to keep the unique piece as your own, providing you want it of course! I'm probably going to a bit like an old car, meaning I'll most likely need a bit of a push to get started, so please allow a 24 hours for the results.

Cheers

Well, I'm looking forward to reading your efforts! You probably won't cherry-pick 'orange' if your verse is all in English. So, how about 'Suvarnabhumi' for starters? Not so bad,really...

Thanks for the replies guys. I know this kind of thing isn't every one's cup of tea, but for the sake of throwing a word or two into the thread, I did think there might have been a few other responses :D

Anyway, as Sassienie was the first and only response for many hours, I took the 'Suvarnabhumi' option and knocked up 9 short verses based around that.

Haven't quite got the knack that I once had, but it was a bit of fun nonetheless :D

Feel free to pull it to bits, tear it apart, or just have a good ole laugh. Heck, I might even get a compliment, but I won't hold my breath on that one ha ha lol :o

Suvarnabhumi

Bangkok's second airport

Don Muang, or DMK

Saw sexpat flights increasing

Doubling every day!

With hoards of horny tourists

Monopolising planes

The city's only airfield

Needed extra lanes

A few MPs in Parliament

Came up with a plan

To construct a huge new airport

A latent kind of SCAM

Took 3 decades creating

Saw purposeful delays

Multi millionaires were born

Aah the good ole days!

Upon eight thousand Acres

Thirty years of booty

So much time to fiddle

Soo-wan-na-phuum the beauty!

Early days of business

Saw many flights delayed

Luggage lost forever

Costs were never paid

Just as things got better

The Taksin mob in town

Boldly marched to soo-wan-na-phuum

And closed the airport down!

So has it all been worth it?

This dream from yesteryear

And what about those sexpats

Who visit us each year?

Soo-wan-na-phuum the Airport

Constructed just for them

And bank accounts in Switzerland

The project made for men! :D

End
