Nuts Buts and Airline Cuts

Beware! This rhyme may contain peanuts
Take care beware when flying high
Of  snacks in packs for sale 
Causing unforeseen discomforts
Airborne lawsuits may prevail

Apparently a noxious dust
May be erupting from your packs
Micro missiles may cause havoc
From harmful almond tea time snacks

Should there be a hint that stuff you eat
Through circulation spreads alarm 
You may be sued for sinus war crimes
Charged with grievous bodily harm

No Can Vous Do

Trust my luck I’m down and out
My wheel of fortune is deflated
The dice I rolled have fallen foul
My gypsy rose agglomerated 

All shook up no good vibrations
My rabbit’s foot is now impending
All signs that once seemed omens
Not worth the weight I’m now contending

Tarot cards are stacked against me
I’m superstitiously suspicious
Unfound belief belies relief
My worried beads tell tales fictitious

Cupcakes in Chiswick

On days when one affords the time
Enjoying beverages at leisure
On linen braid a subtle table laid
Heightens mood in genteel pleasure

Serving fare on finest chinaware
Adorned to tempt ones predilection
Curling dreamy dainty fondant creams
Lend choice selection to confection

Surface Tension

Optical collector
Light absorbed reflector
A vision match confirming sight
Shuffling curious shape conjecture
May coldly crash my pure delight
A false impression guess detector
Deceptively this specular
Predicts results of my molecular
Emitting images most harshly
Expressing points of view impartially
A sliding glance one cannot pass
Look in or out sneak preview carefully
