Ping Pong Poems
(This is the challenge, folks:  add to it, stem off of it, anything to keep it going for awhile or until the moderators get sick and tired of it and lock it off...that last one went a little wacky - however, you will notice that I started it off normally...)


This ding-dong ping-pong
that everyone should reverie
is something I’ma doing
just for our friend ESP.

I’ll get the “ball” started,
just to see where it goes;
Heaven only help us
for anything can go, we know…

So for our little ESP
here is the very first round…
anxiously awaiting to see
if it gets dropped to the ground…


 Sunshine
Look, then, into thine heart, and write ~~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Can't let this little ping pong drop
And so I'll send it back up top
Can't let our little Lizzie down
I'd never want to see her frown  

So come on poets, please join in
Let's cause a little Lizzie grin  
Just add a verse or two or three
And join us in this ping pong spree!

not sure of a ping pong
but fattening are ding dongs
chocolate - gooey inside
eaten with milk, how else?

If its a game of poetry...
I wanna play...
you know Im addicted to poetry..
and addicted I will stay.
You say ping and I say Pong...
as long as it rhymes...
we all get along.
you see I suffer from a poets curse...
everything I say comes out in rhyme and verse...

Oh, no it has to rhyme?
I am in trouble now
when it comes to times for rhymes
I am just a purple cow

This pong and ping
is just the thing
but a subject it is lacking

SO HERE IT GOES LOLs
NEXT

Free verse quite lovely is just fine
Not everything that's written rhymes (see?)
But lacking theme?...that will not do
Let silliness reign through and through
Perhaps a topic will appear
When hearts are lightened, filled with cheer
One never knows what may be found
When souls are lifted off the ground!  

PING

I serve ... you volley back to me,
   I cannot keep the pace;
For always it is difficult
   To stay amongst the race.

Just lob it to me gently now,
   I can't return a "slam",
So take it easy, slow and sure,
   We'll try to find a plan.

PONG

To a friend in ping pong
I would only softly hit
while sweetly singing a silly song
so that he will laugh and miss --)

The words to this silly song
that everyone shall sing
will be sang with
a mouth full of ding dongs
those chocolate fattening things


PING

next ---)

Clever people

You may think I am silly
For what I have to ask you....
Ok.*deep breath* 'What is it
That you want me to do?'

My eyes popped out of my head when  I saw this topic!! So, I must just add to it? Hmm.
Well, before I do, thank you Sunshine for this unexpected treat!!


But I don't doubt that amid such talent,
Instead of missing, he will swing and
I will find it back to me is sent.

So this ball will go back and forth
To all poets south, east, west or north.
Until one day when the ball is broke
And cannot take another stroke.

Until then friends around the world,
Everywhere let this ball be hurled!!
-----------------------------------

Love and hugs to all!
Thanks Sunshine!
-Lizze

This ball of friendship
I do make - a ping pong
ball that can't be broke
'round, 'round the poetic
world it doth spin
bouncing from one precious
friend 'til it never ends

I tried my hand at Ping-Pong once,
Swore I'd never play again,
My opponent challenged, "On my knees,
I'll play you -- and I'll win!"

It must be true, there's no greater fool
Than the aggrogant cocky kind -
His games were hundreds to my one,
But the victory was mine.


(Is this silly enough? ;-)

When I was a child,
I preferred a yo-yo,
I was a curious child,
So I tried ping-pong!

My first try was a failure
The ball just went around,
My friends tried to set a lure,
The ping kept ponging me round,
Away I wanted to go-go,
Ping-pong for me was a no-no.

Ping-pong they play a lot at Hong-kong
When I was a child, I liked King Kong,
Now when I am older, I write a few songs,
About all that is right and all that are wrong.



 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

Cannot help but laughingly wonder
if a drop of the ball would render asunder
this silly little game we've begun
just because of "silly Sun"

So - I'ma pinging this pong back up to the top
and hoping that it won't stop
and hey, a "subject" that we're missing...
well, let's just change it to a theme of kissing...

too riske', you think, this subject matter?
Heck, I bet it would provide great laughter...

PONG!

oooohhhh Sun...
kissing is my most favorite thing to do...
I kiss my kids, my cat, my dog...
I kiss and kiss, till my lips turn blue...
Ive kissed while dancing...
and while singing a song...
but I dont believe Ive ever kissed...
while playing PING PONG...

I've kissed my dog, I've kissed my cat
I've kissed some guys who were 'all that'
I've kissed my mom and kissed my dad
I've kissed when happy, kissed when sad
I've kissed my daughters, grandkids too
It seems I've kissed my whole life through
No wonder that my lips are sore
I need more Chap Stick from the store!


Thanks for starting this silliness, Sunshine! It's fun!

Denise

PONG

Kissing is so warm and sweet,
Much better than a chocolate treat,
I kiss relatives and friends and babies,
But the best kiss, and there is no maybe,
Is a lover's kiss, be spouse or not,
That kind of love makes kisses hot!!!

kiss me once, kiss me twice
long slow kisses are very nice...
on the neck...down the spine...
kisses there are soooo divine.
Kisses in day..Kisses at night,
kisses under the moon do delight.
Wheres the craziest place youve been kissed
confess it here..we'll make a list...

PONG!!!!!!!!!

[Taking editorial license...after all, it's my Ping-Pong...he he...]

I've been kissed...here...there...
why, a little bit of everywhere...
some I like more than most...
I've even been kissed from coast to coast...

but in lieu of kiss, I'd take a hug
now changing theme, I've pulled the rug
out from under before the guys get home
and from Passions, we'd have to roam...

because can't you see just where this would go?
and we'd have to rename it "The Traveling Salivation Show..."

[ROTFL at myself...]

And then there was Gump
Who made the ball jump
Two paddles to a hand
No opponent could stand
In the way of his might

That white ball would fly
Just a blur to the eye
Soaring 'cross the net
As bookies placed bets
All through the night

That Gump went far
Showed Johnson his scar
Whipped up on a Chinese
Playing pong with ease
That dude was alright!


PING


P.S.: If ya wanna see my kiss, such sensual erotic bliss, that will surely make you melt, just go to Adult.

oh my such clever poets
and most of you darn well
know it

Everytime we start a ping pong
thing it somehow turns into a
slightly adult theme

Well, long as y'all keep it clean
I sure in the heck don't mind talkin'
'bout kissin'

kiss me quick, kiss my lips until they swell
but whatever you do, don't kiss and tell

PONG


hmmm an adult room?  -------gosh, gee,
alicat, do you think they'd let me in?

so whats the theme now....
Im confused...
this game of ping pong--
keeps me amused.
we were talking about kissing,
but it got to hot...
Sunshine wants to talk about hugs
but hugs lead to kisses...do they not?
I guess our poetic minds get in the gutter...
all this talk of kissing ...
makes me stutter.
But after all...
this is PASSIONS you know...
if you want romance and fire..
its the place to go.
So tell me now what to write,
Ping or pong...whats your pleasure
other wise Im gonna start kissing again...
ahh poetic lips I do so treasure


PONG!!!!!!!!!!

Well,hugs, it seems, are very nice
They are the best to break the ice
A gentle one or fierce bear hug
Will put a smile on my  mug
No matter how my day has gone
Its magic on my face is drawn
And will, of course, lead to a kiss
That tender sign of heart felt bliss!  

PING

hugs and kisses are lots of fun
lots of sweet poetry in here
wonder what will tickle ESP
what funny bone hath she?
Does ESP know that
Mona Lisa was drawn by
Leonoardo De Vince

he could write and paint
with each hand and at the
same time -- gosh don't know how

Wonder why Mona Lisa doesn't
have any eyebrows?

So Swan ya wanna talk art..
well, I have a Monet of which I'd never part.
Actually I have more than one or two,
in truth I have quite a few.
I love to look at them hanging on the wall.
I have them diplayed framed and all.
I also have some Degas and Van Goghs
they are so lovely dont ya know.
But I dont why Mona's brows are missing...
maybe its due to TOO MUCH KISSING...
OH dear here I go again...
I TRIED TO BE GOOD...and not sin...
but kissing seems to be on my mind...
Im looking for willing lips to find.
I better stop here and PING OFF THIS PONG...
If I keep talking about kissing...
Suns not gonna let me play along  LOL
