The Sloth and The Moth (Illustrated)

I drew an illustration of this poem for my sister's birthday card a couple of weeks ago.  I nearly actually illustrated a different poem, which I haven't posted yet.  So here's the illustration and the poem again.  I've still not decided though whether my favourite absurd bird word is "TRUNGS" or "WOSBOTTOM".

The Sloth & The Moth

"Clear off!"
quoth the sloth to the moth
for he'd had quite enough
of this troublesome moth.
But the moth was lost
in the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees.
But the moth was lost
to his personal cost,
for while he listened
to the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees,
this unfortunate moth
was scoffed by the sloth,
thus bringing the moth
to an abrupt end.
Much like this poem.

PS. It's really difficult to make a sloth look annoyed.

Daddy's got his marching legs on...

Another extra little post.  I'm trying to force myself to write a bit more often (I've actually written another that I've not posted yet, but I might save that for a special occasion).  I was thinking about when I was little and I used to have to run to keep up with my Dad.  It's not really poetry (so I've categorised it as prose), but I think it looks nicer laid out this way.

Daddy's got his marching legs on.
They're slightly taller than me,
but quite a lot shorter than Daddy.

When Daddy turns them on
they walk very quickly and
I have to run to keep up.

Daddy holds my hand very tightly
and even if I stop walking
my legs keep going all by themselves.

When I start to fall behind,
Daddy lifts me off the ground
and swings me in front with one giant step.

It feels like I'm walking on the moon.

The Sloth and The Moth

I haven't done any poetry in ages, but this just came to me...

"Clear off!"
quoth the sloth to the moth
for he'd had quite enough
of this troublesome moth.
But the moth was lost
in the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees.
But the moth was lost
to his personal cost,
for while he listened
to the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees,
this unfortunate moth
was scoffed by the sloth,
thus bringing the moth
to an abrupt end.
Much like this poem.

Satire! Front Page

Front Page

I drew this on the way to work today.  On the front page of the Metro was Wayne Rooney looking annoyed at photographers who took his picture as he left Man Utd's training ground.

Sensational standard of journalism.

Inside I discovered that his pregnant wife went shopping for baby clothes while he was at work.  Apparently this qualifies as further evidence that their marriage is falling apart.

Hello, by the way.  Hope you had a lovely summer.  I'm going to post one comic a day this week to catch up a bit, and then go back to the usual schedule.
