To its title you shouldn't give breath;
It may bring you ill luck - even death!
(Like the fool on the hill
Whom the woods came to kill)
So don't mention the name of...

'A station! For Parents! What next?'
Lady Bracknell was shocked and perplexed.
'Are you telling me, sir,
That your progenitors were
In Transport? I'm very much vexed.'

There once was a young childminder
Mr Rochester wined her and dined her
Then they spent time apart --
He had wounded her heart --
Until clever old Jane played a blinder

A lusty nymphet named Lolita
Had the sexual thirst of a cheetah.
When her beau Humbert Humbert
Enquired, 'Does your bum hurt?'
She cried, 'No - life couldn't be neater!'

My son Kevin adores Robin Hood,
But unlike him K doesn't do good
He is cruel and unkind
And seems out of his mind
Did us parents not do as we should?

Two children named Flora and Miles,
Had beautiful angelic smiles,
But deep in their hearts
There lay much darker parts,
Quint, Jessel, corruption and wiles.

There once was a man, and he
Tested 'people' for empathy.
If they failed, he shot 'em,
except she who was hot to him.
And it didn't end happily.

Which is common with PKD.

As we lost sight of the scenery,
Those plants became quite mean to me.
I was in my bed
When they stung me dead.
The Day of the Walking Greenery.
