I'm Waiting At The Bus Stop This Week...

...As my last week's marathon sprint after the Poetry Bus took me too long to recover from! Today, I'm camping out at the stop, with my overnight bag and Tardis Tent at the ready, so's to be right on time for Monday, when the Driver will be Argent.
Here is my ticket, paid in full.

Just Google!

If you need an armadillo, or some stuffing for a pillow,
and you're not sure where to find some of the same,
you don't need to be a genius, for surely... what I mean is...
nowadays... just Google! What a game!

Find out facts on Wikipedia, which often can mislead ya:
watch Video's galore of YouTube fame.
The web is full of wonder- find a po or a guzunder-
(a chamber pot, to give its proper name!)
Nowadays... just Google! What a game!

If you want to stock your larder, buy a bed that's soft (or harder)
you needn't window shop, or rack your brain.
A search engine lets you travel,
while your shattered nerves unravel
nowadays... just Google! That's the game!

If you wonder what on earth I'm talking about, go visit TFE, and it shouldn't take you too long to decipher what's going on! He will also provide you with a list of dates and drivers, so you can be sure of joining the passengers too, if you like Monday Mystery tours.

  3. I have learned to depend on Google for every little thing that comes into my head. There is lots of air flowing around in there so it doesn't take much to fill it. Ha.

  5. You should put this one to music. It reminds a little of 'The Gasman Cometh'.

  8. Google is great but no wonder the local shops seem to go bust when everything sells much cheaper on line.
    I loved your poem!

    Love the little ducklings in the post below.
    You have been busy!

  10. I should have known you could produce an hilarious poem Jinksy - I find comic poetry too hard - yours is brilliant.

  15. I am late on this one, but it could be set to music. Nicely done.

  16. There's some lovely two-syllable rhyming in this, the rhythm is immaculate, none of the rhymes are forced and you have a lot of humour in there too. I say you deserve the seat next to the driver!

  17. By the living God that made you that's a fine effort jinksy! A smile first thing on a Monday morning - lovely!

  18. Hey J! See my comment on Fridge Soup! You write like one of Canada's greatest living writers. And I don't mean Margaret Atwood . . . or Deborah

  19. According to Anvilcloud Google is king
    but surely you've all heard of Opera, Firefox, K-Meleon and Bing?
    ;-)

  20. Ha, such fun! And VERY true. I am a Google-slave, I worship the darn thing - I buy virtually everything (and far too much of it) on-line, now.

  21. Excellent - though I'm not sure that Google lets my shattered nerves unravel, but I do agree it's quite a game. (funny I didn't bump into you camping at the bus stop!)

  23. Why am I suddenly going around the house humming tunes from H.M.S. Pinafore??? Huh?? Huh??

  24. Oh, Jinksy, I'm in love with Google too!

  26. Great poem, Jinksy! Maybe TFE could use at least some of this to promote the PB magazine! ; )

    ReplyDelete
  27. But what you can't find on Google is the equal of Jinksy's rhymes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You're a genius at rhyming, Jinksy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Clever, m'dear; quite clever. And, true. I use Google's search engine quite often. It's amazing what's one can find out there on the Internet.

  30. You a marathon sprinter, Jinks? Naw! Sprint is short but marathon is long. You must be way out of puff . . .

    ReplyDelete
