Purple Project

 

Pick a piece of purple paper

And a purple pencil too,

Do not wait until you’re prodded,

For you have a job to do.

Draw yourself a purple pumpkin:

Purple platypus as well,

Then you’ll have a purple picture,

That you’ll never ever sell!

Lying on the Beach

 

One day I saw a bottle that was lying on the sand.

I asked: “Why are you lying?” Then I grabbed it with my hand.

The bottle made no answer and it gave a glassy stare:

It clearly felt it had a right to spend time lying there.

I saw a drip form on its lip and thought it was a tear,

Which seemed to say: “Just go away and leave me lying here.”

But I’d been taught that lying was a serious sort of sin,

So straight away, without delay, the liar went in the bin!

Monty says: The idea of using word play for this poem came while working on another poem in response to the same prompt.

PATRICK PLATYPUS

 

Patrick Platypus’s

Work was arduous

For he was trying to remove a pumpkin

From his hole where it had sunken.

He asked help from Myrtle the turtle

And her face went really purple

When she pushed and prodded

But her effort was dogged

And together they moved the pumpkin

From his hole where it had sunken.
