After a bit of prodding, we have a decent set of pomes to pontificate over.
Gazoopi: Troubled by rain and whoopee cushions, Nice
Janus: A very clever acrostic rather spoilt by a later mention of morris dancing. Minus 29 points straight away 🙂
Bilby: Some very clever wordplay and an interesting take on Whoopee.
Araminta: Some very eloquent words about writer’s block 🙂
So, with all the entries at a high level, I think the worthy winner is Bilby. Over to you……..

Well done, Bilby. A worthy winner.
Thank you so much for choosing my pome. I shall ponder on a theme for the June Competition …
Good to see you, Mr Mackie, and many thanks for your kind words.
I thought Bilby’s pome deserved to win too, FEEG.
Well done Bilby!
Thank you, Ara. 🙂
Laureate material it is! Congrats to judge and winner! 🙂
Well, once upon a time, I enjoyed the title of ‘Poet Lorikeet’ …
Thanks very much, Janus. 🙂
Not one of these, I trust, Bilbers? http://www.doc.govt.nz/conservation/threats-and-impacts/animal-pests/animal-pests-a-z/rainbow-lorikeet/
So you’re actually Denis Kevans reincarnated, are you, Bilby? 😀
It’s the one that springs to mind, Janus, ‘cos it’s common. A flock of Rainbow Lorikeets were frequent visitors to my garden in Queensland. Sad that such a beautiful species is now classed as an “Unwanted Organism” in NZ.
I very much doubt it, Bearsy. My Lorikeet is more right wing than left, although it has been known to follow its left wing on occasion.
Strange expression, unwanted organism? It be a bird, bain’t it? 🙂
