The Drunkard

Drunken mess
Who woulda guessed
At drinking alcohol
He's not the best
A little all too soon transpires
To become a lot
And before too long
He's out stone cold
If only he had just said NO

When Jlo Arrives

When Jlo Arrives
All madness will start
Out come the guns, the drinks and the cards
From dawn until dusk
The madness commences
And all through the night
The insanity intenses
When the rays of the sun
Rise in the morn from the East
What they shall alight
Will be something else, to say the least

Poison Cease
Before it devours

Fill In The Blank

Now it's your turn
To fill in the blank


He tries to remember
The facts in his head
What was it he 
What was it she
Are they still
Did he cut off their
Remember, remember

This poem demonstrates the fragility of the human mind; only capable of a certain capacity. Sorry, what? Can you repeat that please?

Halo With Jlo

Halo with Jlo
It's out of control
Halo with Jlo
In a league of its own
Halo with Jlo
The anger is rising
Halo with Jlo
The results are surprising
And when Jlo wins
All joy will break out
But be warned if if he's beaten
You risk being eaten.

This highlights the dangers of defeating your enemies; whilst you may feel a sense of security in your victory, your downfall is always just around the corner.
