Don’t judge the crook by his lover
cause opposites attract
and if you are the flower,
then he is manure;
the bigger they are
the louder they bark;
but believe me their biting ain’t sharp;
no suit makes a man,
no ties make him sane;
just imagine him nude.
and soon you’ll be free.
Today at dVerse Poetics Jilly want us to play with adages, change them and use them in a piece of poetry. For me this turned into a bit of satire.

Howling laughter😂😅😂🤣 love this!
Oh my goodness, that picture! I love the lines ‘Don’t judge the crook by his lover’ and
‘…if you are the flower,
then he is manure’.
But I really wouldn’t want to imagine that man nude!;
That’s a good one!!!
I lost count on the number of adages you twisted in this one! Wow!
Several large guffaws and a few twitters and two laugh out loud(s)–what fun. Political puns are kind of new for you; love your effort. Trump provides comedians great fodder.
For once, I am speechless.
But….manners maketh man. And this buffoon has no manners

Omg my eyes! Aaagghh!
Nice twist on the suit and ties.
Haha you 🤣
Mwahaha! Lovely twists on several adages. Or, well, unlovely – but very well twisted.
What the fuck, Björn, now I have to burn my eyes out! It’s bad enough to have to look at that moron with clothes on, knowing he is the leader of my country makes it even worse.
oh, you’ve nailed this …. and uh, yeah, that image – soooo wasn’t expecting that …. but well, if the shoes are too tight, then for sure, they weren’t hand-made in Italy.
“Don’t judge the crook by his lover” hooked me and the rest floored me. Now how do I unsee that image? Wit with bite, and wonderfully executed!
“Don’t judge the crook by his lover” – fantastic! Everything just pivots from there. Excellent.
This one made me smile and then the picture made me laugh! You nailed it! No judging the crook by his lover… very clever.
Bravo my friend ~ though nearly speechless I am laughing heartily inside ~ so nice to see you posting poetry again!
Nice to be back posting… wish I had more time to read…
What a picture! Fun poem.
I looooooooooooooove your poem, mightily……then i scrolled down and oy, once seen it cant be unseen, lol.
love the subtle political satire , if you are the flower then he is the manure, once does indeed feed off the other. brilliant i must say!
That’s not a laughing matter knowing the position he is holding. A fantastic way to express a satire.
By far my favorite of all the adages!! Well done, Bjorn 😀
From start to finish excellent satirical weaving of adages…would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad for my country.
OMG!!!!!! 😳 What an image — somehow I need to unsee it!!! UGH!!!
Fabulous write – as someone else said, you had me with the first line!
Curse you for that image. Heavens. That cannot be unseen.
“the bigger they are
the louder they bark;”
YES!! I love it. Poor woman.
Perhaps she knows something positive about the man that is not generally being reported. She is, after all, free to go. #PoweroftheFirstLady
That is doubtful.
Reblogged this on Reena Saxena.
well done, although I must say that I don’t have much use for either of them. I can’t lose the image of her in her “I don’t care” jacket. They may be suited for each other.
Hell hath no fury like a Hillary scorned. #PoweroftheFirstLady #DeepState #DrainTheSwamp #MAGA #LockHerUp
This was fantastic! 🤣
