Daily Prompt, humor, poetry, writing

Percolate this!

bad poetry

Ok I’ll give it to you straight
This poem wont be first rate
It wont even be great
Cause the bloody word is Percolate

I guess I could write about coffee granules
Make up something crappy about right angles
Or something silly about cocker spaniels
But that’s unlikely ‘cause all night I’ve been drinking Jack Daniels

I really don’t know what else to write about
Would you like to eat a brussels sprout?
Can I watch you work out?
I promise I wont sell out

You didn’t tell me you have implants
I can see them in your sweatpants
Did you get them through transplants?
They look like two oversized eggplants

I think maybe this is getting stupid
I hope I get a visit from cupid
I shall never be muted
Not even if I get booted

Will you come to bed with me?
I know I don’t have a goatee
But we can go to sleep carefree
Unless you want to scream like a banshee.


  1. Haha, well at least you mentioned coffee 😉

    • Yeah I figure there will be alot of prompts about coffee today. I was trying to come up with something for the alternate meaning but as yet I haven’t come up with anything.

      • Well I do love some good coffee, but you already know this 🙂 However I also like Brussels sprouts!

        • Yes I am waiting for your excellent barista skills to make me coffee 🙂

          I don’t have any problems with brussels sprouts but I don’t know anyone except my parents who would willing eat them.

          • Oh right, I should get on that 😉
            I make Brussel sprouts all the time. In fact my daughter even likes them. I pan cook them NOT boiled. So much better like that, with garlic and butter.

            • I wish I could convince my wife of that. I used to pan cook a lot of vegies with garlic and butter or other stuff but unless they were the mainstream vegies they always got frowned upon. It was a case of knowing what they are and automatically hating them no matter how they were cooked. Unfortunately the kids have grown up the same way.

              • That’s too bad 🙁 I like parsnips, carrots and onions baked on a pan in the oven until caramelized and golden. My very fave is asparagus.
                What is local veggies and fruits for y’all?

                • I’m not a huge fan or parsnips but will eat them and only really started eating asparagus since I meet my wife, it was not something my family ever ate.

                  Our staple veggies are usually broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, pumpkin or sweet potato, potato, peas and beans. they are available everywhere and most of the year.

                  Our main fruits are apples, oranges, pears, tomatoes, bananas and I eat two pineapples a week but we don’t have much else.

                  I used to grow a bit of stuff during the summer but I haven’t put anything in this year because I can’t be bothered.

  2. So, goatee …. well, it has got its own utility. Right? I regret I don’t have one. That’s probably why I’m being neglected.

  3. This is hilarious!

  4. Our grandchildren love Brussel sprouts. But only those made the way Opa makes them. I guess I just don’t understand poetry.

    • I don’t understand it either. I actually can’t remember the last time I actually wrote a poem that was meant to mean something, they are just a bunch of rhyming words that I post at midnight because it’s too late to come up with anything decent.

Got something to say? Drop it here!
