One Minute Rhyme Mark VI

today I picked a buttercup
and nailed it to my chin
for scientific reasons
I tucked the petals in
Instead of glowing yellow
like butter on my bread
it shone a different colour
a gushing shade of red.

Philosophy 101

there’s a hole in Greece
where once in peace
lay old Aristotle
they dug it up
found a Starbucks cup
and an old Heinz ketchup bottle
but the sage himself
was not inside
he’d nipped out for a drink
and there he met
poor Socrates
having a little think
upon the theme
of who we are
and the meaning of our life
but up he sprang
when the phone rang
shouting “I’m not here if that’s the wife!”
