I’ve Got A Fever and the Only Prescription is MORE COWBELL!

Finally the day has come
To bash your bongo and bang your drum
For Blue Oyster Cult and it’s monumental
Fake cowbell player yes, Gene Frenkle
With my one and only tribute
The will make it hard to dispute
That what modern music really needs
Is much more cowbell to succeed

So don’t you forget to tune in
To my show tonight wherein
For three hours of devotee
From 7-10pm GMT
A dedication so profound
To the lovely clonking sound
Let’s strike the heavens and raise hell
What this poem needs is more cowbell!

Tune in to the Dazzle Rebel Show on TBFMonline.co.uk TONIGHT from 7-10pm GMT for three hours of stonkin’ cowbell songs!

Honey with Marmite

Ever had one of those kiddy combinations
Like Honey and Marmite on toast?
Sunday greens with jelly beans
It’s a new take on the roast

I’ve never understood peanut butter and jello
It’s one of those American things
Like cornflakes in a lasagne
Or chocolate onion rings

But peanut butter and cheese on toast
Is definitely the combination I like the most
Not strawberry jam with chicken wings
Or butternut squash and cheese strings

Those funny, weird and strange concoctions
Flabbergast me with their options
So since turning thirty-one
There’s no more kiddy combinations, yes, I’m done

Been trying to grow basil on the windowsill
But it’s taking it’s time to get going
I wonder what I’m doing wrong
There’s barely a seedling showing

Been trying to grow basil on the windowsill
Was there a problem while I was sowing?
It’s been over a week and I’m starting to freak
I guess there’s no way of knowing

Given up growing basil on the windowsill
It just didn’t seem to be growing
I gave it up and now it’s gone
Away, banished and thrown in

The Earthworm Jim

Ever wondered what would happen if an earthworm had brains?
And a special suits with mechanical limbs so he could ride motorcycles and planes?
He could go on a mission to save planet Earth
From his home undergound the mighty turf
Would he battle the baddies like Psy-Crow and Bob the Killer Goldfish?
Major Mucas, Queen Slug-for-a-Butt or something equally kitch?
He’d have a deep love for Princess What’s-Her-Name
Though she’d be killed by a cow at the end of the game
So don’t balk or say my theory is sh*t
It’s an Earthworm Jim, but not as we know it

Halfway House

We’re half way through this poetry marathon
And I’ve not even broke out the big guns garrison
Sticking to stuff I think of on the fly
It ain’t big nor clever I cannot lie
But stick with me folks because we’re nearly there
And one or two poems will be written with more care
Some will excite you and some probably not
But I’ve always said poetry’s something that I never got

My Sunday Show on TBFM

Another weekend comes to and end
So tune into my show where you’ll be among friends
From seven to ten on TBFM
Yes it’s time to tune in again
With tracks from new bands like Toadstool and Curran
Whisky Blood, Valve Rider, Slam Cartel and others
Isn’t it time you tuned into the show
Where else on Sunday can you burry your woe
That Monday is coming but it’s not too late
To visit the chatroom and be amoung mates
