Foam's Lament (with happy ending and strategic lisp)

Oh dear, o me, o my.
What's become of my fly?
Trembling hands find it to be rather stuck.
Caught zip in britches is unpropitious!
No pith! ... I'm in a muck!

My hand pulls quite graceless
The fly that's not blameless
When, hark! A firm yank frees zip gone amok.
Freed wee can now move with ease quite shameless.
To pith! .. I'm in such luck!

Inspiration for the subject matter and use of the "p" word in this bit of silly poetry nonsense goes directly to Sir Percy Bisque Silley who is the very talented host of a silly poetry contest. (Link:
Reading the entries of our own dear Lady Dianne, Sir Percy, J Cosmo Newbery and other talented bloggers has been quite diverting and entertaining.

PS: Thanks also to Percy Bysshe Shelley even though he's rather dead and would turn in his grave.

But I am pleased to see your entry into the the realms of native bearers and pith helmets and...what...oh, that thort of pith! Thorry.

foam said...

but i think your command of the english language is excellent.

j cosmo newbery,
thorry! oops, sorry!
it's not necessarily a submission into the contest. i'm just acknowledging the source of inspiration.

LOL... and that Silley person says that women can't compose poetry.
pshaw I say! pshaw!!!

Pamela said...

not pith as in 'pith on thithter thuthie" snort.

I enoyed. and that would have been a fun meme to have taken part.

foam said...

thanks for the praise .. lol. hopefully, sir silley is
jesting while jousting? but then, one never can be sure.

Lady Dianne,
i am so pweathed that you have enjoyed my wee (pun, get it? pun) ;) bit of thilly pithy pwothe. i had fun putting it together.
besides being inspired by the silley's pithy word, it is also based on an incident that happened to me at school.i had taught several classes in a row when i finally had a wee bit of time to go. i found myself waiting to get into the loo and then this happened .. :). i made it just in time to my next class.

dianne said...

I hate that when you are bursting to go and there is a pleased you made it.
I hope you are going to enter your pwose in the competition. :) xoxo ♡
