Christmas Past

With Christmas all but over
Leftovers warmed, and gone
We take the decorations down
And life, it just goes on.

No more frantic shopping
No christmas carols play
No more gross indulgence
No more Christmas day

No more glitzy tinsel
No twinkling fairy lights
No more bouncing baubles
Gluttonous days and lazy nights.

It’s sweet goodbye to prodigals;
Au revoir to festive paper.
It’s ciao to tins of chocolate
And hourly snacking, see you later!

It’s been a great occasion
With feasting, gifts, and more
But since new year is on her way
I must show you the door.

Just until this time next year
When Santa calls again
But can we keep the charming peace
And goodwill to all men.

A Poem About Grandma

a poem about grandma by Ms MoemA Grandma is a special girl; she’s seen more than you know.
She proudly held you when you were born & happily watched you grow.
She takes a genuine interest and she knits, and knits, and knits
And you’ll find that dear old Grandma, is someone you love to bits.

You’ll love her soft & rosy cheeks, and freshly set & permed hair.
You’ll love the roasts and tasty treats, she offers when you go there.
You’ll love to spend time chatting, just talking about how things were
And there’s a wealth of family knowledge that could only ever come from her.

There’s only lovely Grandma who could get away criticising your thighs.
Relishing being that honest age, her words come with a spark in her eyes.
With only the best intentions at heart, she has a cheeky grin
And there’s only lovely Grandma can get away with a daily gin.

She won’t take any nonsense, and she’s firm but fair to boot
But she really thinks the world of you, and that’s a lucky truth.
Not everyone has to care for you, but a Grandma always will
And when she is sadly no longer here, you’ll feel her love even still.

Promise Me

Promise Me is a poem written by Ms Moem.

Voiced by Jozefa Fawcett.

This poem is one of my collection of wedding poems. Promise Me takes a form that makes it suitable as a wedding reading, or even as your wedding vows. It is a poem that sums up the promises that you would hope your bride or groom would make for you, beyond “To have and to hold” and “To love and to cherish”.

If you would like to use this poem at your wedding ceremony, please do drop me a line and let me know. And I love to hear how my poems are received!

Prince Harry Naked Pictures

Prince Harry Naked Pictures PoemPrince Harry naked pictures is a popular internet trend
As images have emerged, that should’ve been kept between friends.
But some unscrupulous person, saw fit to break his trust
And put the crown jewels on display, to be gawped at by all of us.

I frankly don’t see the issue, and our young fun-loving Prince
Should be able to let his hair down, without it then going to print.
He’ll never be our Sovereign, so why shouldn’t he have a ball
Without the papers wringing their hands and over-dramatising it all!

He wasn’t hurting anybody. He was on holiday, with his chums
And next he’s all over the internet, showing a little princely bum.
It’s the kind of funny story, his grandchildren will be told
And right now, I think it makes Harry, a piece of Royal gold!

So yes, Prince Harry got naked and he probably had a blast
But let’s not talk of disrepute, as this will become history fast.
He has a long life ahead of him; of duty, and Royal display
But for now he’s just a young man, and he will party another day!

What’s So Good About Twitter

why tweet - why I love twitterPeople ask me why I like twitter
And I enthuse with great delight;
I have made some fabulous friends
Who entertain me day and night.

I’ve been tweeting since 2009 now
And it’s become a daily tradition.
I hear about news just as it’s breaking
And I have also won some competitions.

I started out purely for business
And it was predominantly B2B.
But now it is loved by the masses
The community is wonderful to see.

It is also thanks to twitter
That I’ve shared my work with pride
And also secured two contracts
With companies who are known world wide.

I got a tweet from a genuine Olympian
On the day that he competed
And not only did he interact
But I found myself retweeted!

I’ve shared events with my buddies
Whilst I have been sitting at home.
Which makes you feel more connected
That if you had been watching alone.

Twitter is an excellent medium
If it is one you choose to use.
Because of it, my name was mentioned
With a comment, on Sunrise, Sky News.

I’ve also met some major business folk
Who’ve supported and advised.
In fact there are many twitter fans
Who are ridiculously talented and wise.

I found myself a mentor
And tweeted my favourite stars
Some of them actually tweeted back;
That’s how lovely my faves are!

I’ve had mentions from absolute legends
Who I’ve watched for years on TV
And it may not seem like a big deal
But it really means the world to me.

But above all, I love Twitter
For the people who tweet me everyday.
People come into your life for a reason,
And I hope they always will stay!
