    My favourite Spike poem was:
    There was a young man from Darjeeling
    Who got on a bus bound for Ealing
    A sign on the door
    Said 'Don't spit on the floor'
    So he layid back and spat on the ceiling.

    It appears in one of his books (not certain if he wrote it)

    I suspect that the so-called Spike Milligan poem called ‘Smiling’ that gets widely circulated on social media is nothing of the kind. It doesn’t feel Milliganesque at all.

    someone kind sent me Spike Milligan`s poem on Smiling

    Smiling is infectious
    ou catch it like the flu

    when someone smiled at me today
    I started smiling too

    I walked around the corner
    and someone saw me grin

    When he smiled I realized
    I has passed it on to him

    I tought about the smile
    and then realised its worth

    A single smile like mine
    Could travel round the earth

    So if you feel a smile begin
    Don`t leave it undetected

    Start an epidemic
    And get the world infected.

    This poem was commented on in Facebook but I had never heard of it.

    I am looking for a poem about abortion by Spike Milligan. Do you have it?

    And though we love her very much, she bored us all to tears. Where is this poem? ? ? ? ?

Best Poem of Spike Milligan

On The Ning Nang Nong

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

Read the full of On The Ning Nang Nong


There must be a wound!
No one can be this hurt
and not bleed.

How could she injure me so?
No marks
No bruise

People say 'My, you're looking well'
.....God help me!
She's mummified me -
