Funny poems written by Banana_the_poet. This funny poetry blog is filled with original poems to bring a touch of humour to those who take the time to read them. I avoid 'sloppy' poetry and strong language as I just don't find those things very inspiring or funny.
But I hope these offerings will be funny enough to keep people coming back for more. I once tried stand up comedy and although the audience laughed at the right moments - I didn't enjoy feeling like I was about to have a heart attack at any moment. So I decided to put my creative comedy stuff into poems instead. Hope you like at least one of them!
Some people who are certain if there is or isn't God
have always struck me firmly as being rather odd
because instead of being comfortable with whatever they believe
they focus on making the opposite view their very favourite peeve.
I wonder what it is about being so convinced
that's so unsatisfying unless the opposition's minced
into tiny pieces of sobbing defeated mess?
What they get from this is anybody's guess.
Now here's the basic tenet which underpins my philosophy,
believe or don't in whatever you want and let the other fellow be.

I'm giving away a nice LONG ebook over the Christmas holiday period.
It has images, some black and white and some colour, over 200 poems, a true story about when my family towed a powerboat over the Alps and a short festive fictional story. So what better way to put your new ereader through its paces?
Kindle provide software to enable you to download and read this free book on a variety of devices.
So if you want a free book to read over Christmas on your iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows PC, Apple Mac or other ereading device look no further.
Here's the link to the facebook page where you can get the links to whichever Amazon Kindle site you need :
This is one of the first animated cartoons I attempted. I am limited by the package as to how many people can speak and the actions they can carry out. I think this was moderately successful as an adaptation of my poem Mr Badshock.
I send these words to all of you
and hope they find you hale and well
and if not that then on the mend
and with a hopeful tale to tell.
I wish you days of fun and love,
fond leisure, all unrushable
and may all the crap you have to deal with
be entirely flushable.
So snuggle down, keep toasty warm
eat, drink and please be merry
and spare a thought for those worse off
like the little Christmas Fairy
who has a tree shoved up her skirt
be honest that has got to hurt.
As a gift from me here's my Top Ten bestselling Pink Kindle Poetry Book to download Free from Kindle - limited time offer - will go back to costing money on Sunday 18th December.
