Spank Us Mommy... October contest

This ball of dirt, water and air
Is all we have to cling to
All of the life; skin, scales and hair
We have nowhere else to move to

Let's not foul our water and food
Just to make some of us rich
Keep it clean, brighten our mood
Remember, Mother can be a real bitch

Review Request (Intensity):

good short narrative...best wishes for the contest...have fun...

perhaps I would have changed bitch to beast if you mean as I guess how she lashes out in the form of hurricanes, tsunamis, etc.....bitch to me sounds like someone who lures to take a false step whereas a beast is someone who who reacts if we mess up with her...of course that's my take...

To most Americans, a bitch is a female who is fiercely protective of her territory, doesn't take shit from anyone and a nasty customer in a fight! Sometimes, she is just being a bitch because; sometimes with good reason. She can be loved, admired or reviled, depending on the situation. Oh, and she isn't always human. So I guess that she might be described as a beast! Thanks for the input though. It is interesting to see that many of our words are seen in a different light in different cultures. As I am involved with the contest, I cannot win, I just like to try and keep my hand in and find most of the subjects interesting enough to try and write something about them. Again, thanks for the read and comment. ~ Geezer.

Yeah if we keep on reproducing with no bounds ol' mother nature will eventually come up with a cure for that virus which calls itself mankind

I had a friend in my youth, that used to say just that. He said, One of these days Mother Earth will give herself a good shake and get rid of us all.

I have been on the Inty now
for over 13 years
mostly all women act bitchy
about the world
hiccups
I am the tightest kinda you know
but when they feel itchy
your side women are
exactly what you say

beasts can and need to rest
bitches love longer queues
and more variety tooo

after a later years bitching
they produce a kid or two
god knows whose
then say guy fu
off you gooo

no more need to woo
as my lesby friend comes
more often we discuss
no more intercourse
phew!
Glad mommy won't give a damn to you
as no promise of a prize to gee likes
great poem enjoyed it

after your approval and the contest is over
shall lay this for all bitches

then see who have the guts still to say
FU!

I didn't get to be this old and not know how to deal with a bitch! You have to admire them, hate them, love them and just know when to get out of the way! ~ Geezer.
