The Dickens To Pay

Charles Dickens
Thought there were rich pickings
In merchandising his Pickwick Papers.
He mined whole acres.

'The Big Reveal'

Little Red Riding Hood,
If she'd entered the wood
In an Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini...
It'd be a very different tale. Fini!

Chain Smoker

Isambard Kingdom Brunel,
If not chain-smoking felt unwell.
Never without his stovepipe headgear;
Monoxide poisoning his greatest fear.

Mixed Metathors

Thor.
His moves invoked awe.
Whereas Loki
Mastered nowt but the hokey-cokey.

Or do you prefer

Odin
Kept his woad in
Pandora's Box
Along with some odd socks.

Happy 95th

Sharing dementia
Forgetfulness and deafness
An Aged Dailogue

Or do you prefer

Non-verbal being
Deafness and forgetfulness
Aged Ps talking
