Twinkle Twinkle I’m a star!

December 23, 2008

Dear Santa let me seal
A big fat cheque and three-book deal.
The brightest stars shine most light
When they put the world to write!

*Dorothy Darker wishes you all a decadent Christmas and shall return in the New Year!


Joint of the day!

December 22, 2008

At the Christmas table I sit and wait
For someone to thrill my dinner plate.
But though I moan, I am aware
Good meat tastes best when it is rare!

Sinister Spinster!

December 20, 2008

They all assume one has no life
Because one is nobody’s wife.
Thus overwhelm one’s mind with slaughter
Because one is the spinster daughter!

It’s good to google!

December 19, 2008

I google by night, I google by day,
I may have googled my life away.
I google mankind, but being on the shelf,
I hit those keys, and google myself!

Some contemplate who is Miss Darker?
Inspired by the late D Parker.
A dame who spends her cyber time
Composing bitter verse that rhyme!

Santa’s Stingy Sack!

December 17, 2008

For this year’s sumptuous yuletide feast
I crave a brave and seasoned beast.
But though I’m blessed with beauty and wit,
Santa remains a miserable git!

Dream a little dream…

December 16, 2008

Aidan Quinn to swap his wife,
Could be the making of my life.
Or lying naked in the sack,
Some blue-eyed boy who’d ring me back!

Somewhere else!

December 15, 2008

The music hurtling through my head,
I think I’d rather be in bed –
Or in my bathroom cleaning mould –
Does this mean I’m getting old?

The race is on to shop and buy,
But I’m too tired to traipse and try.
To splash my cash, I think instead,
That I shall spend the day in bed!

Killing Time!

December 12, 2008

I twitch and itch and cannot rest,
I know that I’m not at my best.
What shall I diagnose for me?
A chronic case of plain ennui!
