- GTKY : : Humour

Hi, how are you? What’s your name?
We’re playing a GTKY kind of game
What on earth does GTKY stand for?
Getting To Know You, can you please tell us more

How long have you lived here? Where are you from?
I’ve lived here 10 years and I come from a kingdom
A tiny principality of a hundred people or fewer
Our chief export there is three humped camel manure

Oh really, that’s fascinating, I never would have guessed
That three humped camel manure was one of the best
Oh but it is, it’s expensive, it’s worth more than gold
It contains a special ingredient, that’s what I’ve been told

If you smear it on your face, your wrinkles will disappear
I do it myself every day, have been doing it for years
But your face is covered in wrinkles, covered in splotches
You believed my story, ha ha, I gotcha

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
