Poetry Competition

Members of my Creative Writing Group, and anyone else who would like to join in, were invited to send in a poem inspired by an apartment I was looking at for my convalescence (but decided against!)which was described as a luxury apartment and 'open plan'.The en suite bathroom consists of a corner of the bedroom sectioned off but without a door! Below are some of the entries so far, enjoy!

From Lyn:

There once was a lady called Sue
Who lived with an open plan loo
She would sit on the throne
For a strain and a moan
Whilst whistling or calling woohoo!

From Marc:

An open plan apartment!
I didnt have a clue
How easy it could make life
Stirring dinner from the loo

I may be here a short while
So i suppose I'd better settle.
And its handy that within two steps
I can fill and boil the kettle

It makes a lot of sense
After my eight hours
To roll nonchanently from my bed and
Land right in the shower

And if I forget the soap
It is no longer scary.
I just reach under the kitchen sink
And squeeze a drop of Fairy.

I can reach the fridge from my bed
And turn over the telly,
And dispite all my misgivings
Its not at all that smelly.

Singing Flanaghan and Allen
I stroll to clean my teeth.
I only have one arch here
And the sinks not far to reach.

Its compact and its bijoux
With no room to swing a cat.
But im here while I get better
In this cosy little flat

I have to use a tiny pen,
To do my creative writing
Anything longer than a bic
Plays havoc with the lighting

And when I hunker down at night
With new sounds, creeks and a hum,
I close the curtains with one foot
And turn the light out with my bum.

So if you will excuse me
I just saw that theres decking.
I just opened a bottle of red
So I'm off to do some necking.

From Chris:

Sue’s Loo

Now come on Sue, don’t be shy

When using the loo, enthroned on high.

It’s not an injection, it’s not radioactive,

You won’t get infection, it’s rather effective.

But as for your chums who must answer the call

They risk showing their bums; it won’t do at all.
Thanks Guys. Keep 'em coming
